1968 Jaguar E-type.

I am the second owner and I bought the car in the fully restored condition you see it here. I bought the car in 2010. Upon purchase, I had the car completely gone through by a master Jaguar mechanic, who is also a JCNA (Jaguar Club North America) long time member and well known mechanic. During this recommissioning, I had all brakes renovated. This consisted of new rotors, new Hydra-cyl cylinders (increased bore volume and stainless steel), new stainless steel bridge pipes, new lines, front and back. This rear brake work involves removing the rear end of the car and servicing the entire assembly. This is an expensive maintenance item that is often overlooked by owners who only maintain the front brakes. Differential and suspension was lubed and is maintained. I also had a full suspension renovation, including (Boge, factory correct) new trailing arms, shocks and bushings, throughout. This is essential maintenance that needed done in order to bring the car into good driving condition. The prior owner had the car fully restored in 2000, but as the car was rarely driven, basic recommissioning was required.

I also had a full stainless steel Bell exhaust installed while the full maintenance was being handled. I took the opportunity to replace all the wear items that needed replacement. The car has Vredestine classic tires with very low mileage, under 1000 miles. I drive this car very sparingly. It's averaged less than 1,500 miles per year, closer to 500 in some years. I've shown the car annually at the JCNA/ JAGM concour event. The car is typically graded at 98 to 99 points. Deductions were for incorrect sugar scoop color (the assembly under the headlights), and I was deducted for window tinting. The window tinting was from the prior owner and it has been removed. I've also displayed the car at various events and concour shows in Michigan.

The mileage is original at ~42,000 and verified by the prior owner. The car runs and drives very well. Starting, running, and stopping all happen as they should. The engine oil pressure is solid at the high 30/40 mark and stays there. I use Valvoline 20W50 racing oil, on recommendation of my club mechanic and I've been very pleased. The 20W50 viscosity works well and the high ZDDP content protects the valve train. I have never experienced overheating and have flushed the radiator annually.

The 4 speed manual transmission shifts well and easily. No grinding, as was common in the earlier cars, the upgraded gearbox is very good. I had a new master cylinder and slave cylinder replaced for the clutch, which were simply worn from age. The clutch was rebuilt by he prior owner and engages well with no issues.

The body is in very clean condition, as evident in the pictures. No rust is present and the deep lacquer paint has a depth of luster that is uncommon in today's paint finishes. This, combined with the hand formed metal body create a evocative and immediately recognizable figure. Interior is completely new as of 2000 and has been very well maintained and wear is commensurate with the

Car has a buy it now price of $35,300 for 6 days. Car now said to be in Yorkville, Illinois. Same photos and mileage, possible scam.

Sellers description:
1968 Jaguar E-type. Mine is a series 1.5 car. 1.5 cars have attributes of both series 1 and 2 cars, which make them unique. The series 1.5 is essentially the end of series 1, where excess parts were used until gone, as series 2 cars were coming online. Adding that this car is a 2+2 further makes the car unique, as the production volume was very low.

The engine is 4.2 liter, in-line six cylinder. Manual transmission, which is an upgrade from series 1. Better brakes are also present in my car, an upgrade from series 1.

Scam: Car being advertised around using photos from this site at the price of $32700

Also, if this car is a 2+2, why does the heritage certificate say FHC?

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?
