Car has a buy it now price of $27,500, 3 days left, 2 offers.

Sellers description:
1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Litre Fixed Head Coupe. A 69,000 mile rust free example recently removed from 25 years of dry garage storage. Opalescent Silver Grey with Red Leather. This is a complete, number matching, corrosion free Series One covered headlamp Fixed Head Coupe (not 2+2) that has the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate attesting to its matching numbers. The 4.2 litre series 1 cars also have the vastly improved seats and charging systems that plagued the 3.8 cars. Sold to the first owner in Austin, TX. thru Jaguar Cars, NY, the car remained in dry Texas until the early 80's then migrated to the Northwest. The engine was rebuilt, then a few minor repairs started such as seats/door panels, wiring, etc. The work for the most part stopped, then 25 years passed. Knowledgeable Jaguar enthusiasts understand the professional repair costs of the battered, uncorrect, molested, abused, rusted examples normally seen offered on eBay will exceed the Buy It Now price of this example for body/metal work alone. The discoloration on the spare tire floor and footwells is a etching rust preventative applied years ago. Purchased to keep as a future project, but reluctantly offered here due to demands of existing projects and limited storage capacity.

Seller's description:

Location: Oceanside, California, 92056 (Classic Showcase)

VIN #: 1E30962

Transmission: Manual

Condition: Excellent

Exterior: Opalescent Silver Grey

Interior: Red

This matching-numbers 1965 Jaguar XKE has undergone a comprehensive documented show-driver restoration and has been campaigned in JCNA events for the last 2 years. The car just recently took first place at the San Diego Jaguar Club's Annual Concours, a sanctioned JCNA event. Included in the restoration process, the vehicle was stripped to bare metal, placed on a rotisserie, metal finished, leaded, all body parts and chrome were fitted to the car, it was prepared for primer, sealer, paint, base, clear coat, color sanded and buffed to a fabulous finish. All systems such as the electrical, cooling and fuel have been gone through. The engine was rebuilt back to factory specifications, as well as the Transmission, rear end and suspension, and all mechanical components. The clutch system and hydraulic system were replaced; the car received all new rubber, seals, and a new wire loom. The car has received a new correct exhaust system, new battery, the gas tank has been epoxy sealed and radiator was upgraded to a new aluminum radiator with auxiliary fan. All the brite work was re-plated or replaced as needed. The car received a complete new custom tailored and fit interior in the correct materials. An mp4 video file of the restoration process accompanies the vehicle. This E-Type stands as a great example to campaign at your favorite Concours or Show Event, or as a great investment grade example; regardless of your desired use, this XKE is sure to delight it's next owner.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
