Car listed on EBay:
www.nadaguides.com) definition of average condition and is reserved for significantly less than the $40,900 book value. All components, except for the clock, are functional. The Blaupunkt FM/AM/Cassette Receiver has a detachable face plate to deter theft. The Avon 185 R15 tires are original specification and have less than 350 miles on them, Koni shocks and a complete exhaust system were part of the restoration, a high velocity radiator fan replaces the original – keeping this Jag running cool (80° C), the master cylinder was recently brass relined, and headlamps are high intensity halogen.
Vehicle Condition: The odometer was not turned back when the car was restored and although it shows 62917 miles, there is less than 1000 miles on the car since restoration. Chrome is original. Paint (Dupont base-coat/clear-coat) is chipped in several places and would benefit from a refinish. Floor pans have been overlaid with fiberglass. The car comes with the original owner’s manual, a quart of finish paint for touchup, a luggage rack, a black hood cover, much of the original tool set, and six spoke wheels. The car is currently registered but since being restored it has been driven sparingly. It is for this reason that I am putting it up for sale.
On Sep-02-03 at 09:28:18 PDT, seller added the following information:
A number of questions suggest the following needs clarification: • This 1967 is a Series 1 – production continued through 6/67. The production number (VIN): 1E14154, engine: 7E11278-9, gear box: EJ11988, chassis: 4E5889. • The ‘tub’ (body) is not original – it had too much rust. The floorboards, sills, and transmission tunnel was overlaid with fiberglass, after the body was sand-blasted. This cured minor rust problems and prevented reoccurrence. One of the outer (rocker) sill panels was replaced. There is no wheel well or underbody rust. There is some slight blistering on the bonnet – too small to show up in a photograph (I tried). • I purchased the car in Poughkeepsie, NY from a neighbor. At the time of purchase it probably had less than 20, 000 miles. Prior to my purchase it was involved in a slight accident and at that time the owner changed the color from black to red. The original interior was red. The current colors approximate the Carmen Red – Beige combination for later Series 1. • The upper and lower engine rebuild consisted of standard size bearings and rings, head resurface, and valve reface. There is some minor fluid leakage – rear oil seal and (perhaps) slave clutch cylinder. The transmission rebuild consisted of new synchronizer gears and needle bearings. The chassis has all new rubber, bearings (when needed), front ball joints, tie-rods. • I am an experienced amateur mechanic who has rebuilt multiple engines including a XJG-6 (4.2). This Jaguar has never been serviced by anyone other than me since I purchased it. As a result there are no maintenance records – the car will pass your inspection. • The convertible top is Haartz stayfast an acrylic fabric which looks like mohair but resists fading, shrinking, mildew and brittleness (according to British Auto).
With 5 days 19 hours left on the auction there have been 20 bids on the car to bring the price up to US $30,000.00 (Reserve not met)

Current bid $9,000, 4 bids, 3 days left in auction. Car now said to be located in Wilmington Deleware. The description given is essentially the same as above and even the same mileage is given, as are the pictures. I don't believe this is a legitimate auction. Interestingly the license plate number is blanked out however the same rear view picture is used.

Car was again listed on ebay in June of 2007, item number 220118289633. Same pictures were used as above. I also believe the listing was fraudulent. I reported the listing to firstname.lastname@example.org. It was later pulled. Be careful!

Saw that listing. Asked the seller some questions. His reply was full of misspellings and was definitely the same scam as we've seen many other times. Interestingly I got his offer to sell it to me after the auction was pulled.

In my opinion the listing is another scam. Reported to be in Colorado, same '03 pictures, low opening bid.
