Ebay item 5/28/14
Car has a buy it now price of $26,500 for 18 days.
1967 JAGUAR E-TYPE TWO-SEATER COUPE. 4.2 LITERS. SERIES ONE. 4-SPEED. CHROME WIRE WHEELS. ORIG PRIMROSE YELLOW WITH BLACK TRIM.
KURT TANNER RESTORATIONS offers for sale, here on Ebay, a complete 1967 Jaguar E-type 4.2 Liter Fixed Head Coupe for full restoration. This car is totally complete except for the bonnet headlamp chrome rings, glass covers, and motif bar (which are all easily available). The car is fitted with an earlier E-type 4.2 engine block and a later Series Two or replacement cylinder head. The body tag and chassis numbers match the original data plate. The car is a very good candidate for full restoration. Some rust repair is needed. The car appears to have left the factory finished in Primrose Yellow with black trim. It is a very original car, having never been taken apart.
The front floors have received new dipped floor sections. The previous owner removed the outer LH rocker panel or sill for replacement, and the inner structures and supports look very good. The RH side also needs to be replaced, but these items are fairly straightforward and typical for an E-type. The bonnet has sustained some damage on the right front. This can be repaired by a capable panel beater or replaced with another center section. The door skins could use a lower panel on both sides. There is some rust repairable rust in the tail section and trunk floor. The car's underside is reasonable with good trailing arm pickup and jacking points. The front subframes looks very straight and in decent order. A complete stripdown and blasting of the body would be in order for a restoration of great results.
Mechanically, the car appears very complete. There is an extra parts photo that includes items not pictured on the engine, but are present. The data plate is original and correct for the car. The current fitted engine has a blocked stamped with an earlier 4.2 number than the one that is listed on the data. The cylinder head has no number stamped, indicating it is a later or replacement unit. I haven't tried to turn the engine. I presume it is stuck, and would need a rebuild. All of the rest of the mechanical components appear correct for the car.
All trim items are present except those noted earlier. The gauges, seats, interior, chrome trim, steering wheel, etc. are all correct. All of the glass is present and is in reasonable shape.
Overall, this car is a good candidate for a ground-up restoration. It is very complete and correct. It is the highly desirable 4.2 Liter Triple-carb, enclosed headlamp, Series One model which is very much sought after at present. This coupe retains the spectacular lines of the earlier model with the conveniences of improved seats, a full syncromesh gearbox, the torquier 4.2 engine, better brakes and electrical system. It is a great investment going forward.
