Late 50ish Ex-pat Brit, bikes and cars are it for me! The 65 S1 has been slightly modified with S3 head, ss extractor pipes, Minilites, aluminium radiator, Willwoods, did have Webers but went back to SU's, maybe thinking of injection (?) and, as always, is a work in progress! My other toys are a 95 993 and a 50's MAC Velocette...

Car has a buy it now price of 25,000 for 9 days.

Sellers description:
REBUILT AND MODIFIED CALIFORNIA E-TYPE FOR SALE. - THERE IS A CATCH - THE ENGINE WAS REBUILT ABOUT 9 MONTHS AGO - I REMOVED THE ORIGINAL ENGINE AND DECIDED TO PUT IN A MODIFIED 4.2 ENGINE, THE NEWLY INSTALLED SERIES III HEAD DROPPED A VALVE SEAT - UNUSUAL FOR THE 6 CYLINDER - AND ALTHOUGH I STOPPED QUICKLY IT POCK MARKED ONE PISTON, WHICH WAS REPLACED, AS WAS THE HEAD. THE ENGINE AND CYLINDER HEAD HAD BEEN RE-ENGINEERED PROFESSIONALLY AND ARE COMPLETELY READY TO BE RE-ASSEMBLED. AS I AM GOING TO SELL THE VEHICLE, I DECIDED TO ALLOW THE PURCHASER THE CHANCE TO ASSEMBLE OR HAVE ASSEMBLED THE ENGINE SO THEY KNOW HOW AND BY WHOM THE ENGINE WORK WAS DONE, AND TO BE ABLE TO VERIFY THAT EVERYTHING INSIDE IS AS PERFECT AS IT IS.

I REALISE THIS LIMITS PEOPLE INTERESTED, BUT IF I WAS GOING TO BUY A CAR LIKE THIS, I THINK THIS IS THE WAY I WOULD WANT TO BUY IT. AND WITH ALL THE SPARES AND PARTS YOU CANNOT JUST JUMP IN DRIVE IT AWAY ANYWAY!

WE DO HAVE XK'S UNLIMITED ABOUT 25 MILES AWAY IN SAN LUIS OBISPO, WHO, I AM SURE, WOULD BE ONLY TOO PLEASED TO OFFER ASSEMBLY SERVICES, IF THE POTENTIAL PURCHASER DOES NOT WANT TO DO THE WORK HIMSELF, OR DO DOES NOT HAVE A LOCAL FAVORITE ENGINE BUILDER.

THE REST OF THE CAR IS 99% REBUILT, AND HAS BEEN WORKING PERFECTLY AS THE LOCAL JAG CLUB CAN ATTEST!! - IT IS THE USUAL STORY THERE ARE SOME SMALL PIECES OF TRIM TO BE FITTED. NOW ALL IS ALL READY TO GO BACK TOGETHER FOR THE ENGINE, - MY PAINFUL LOSS YOUR GAIN!

THE CAR COMES WITH MANY, MANY PARTS, MY TOTAL ACCUMULATION OF ALMOST 7 YEARS OF WORK AND OWNERSHIP! (PLEASE NOTE I WILL NOT SPLIT - PLEASE DO NOT ASK), THE PURCHASER GETS EVERYTHING I HAVE, INCLUDING ALL MANUALS, CD'S ETC ETC

I DO HAVE THE JAGUAR HERITAGE CERTIFICATE, THIS CAR HAS ALWAYS BEEN A LOCAL CAR, IN THIS AREA, AND HAS NOT DONE ANY BIG MILEAGE, ALTHOUGH I DO NOT HONESTLY KNOW WHAT THE CURRENT REAL MILEAGE IS. HAS ORIGINAL BLACK CALIFORNIA PLATES, ALL DMV UP-TO-DATE AND IN ORDER.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
