Car sold for $46,440 at the 2004 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. Description:
"This car has had the same owner for 16 years. 59,000 original miles. Never wrecked, never rusted, straight. Numbers matching car. Total restoration was completed in 2002. Everything on it is either new or rebuilt. My goal was to bring the car up to near concours, yet still be able to drive and enjoy it. Restoration resulted in a very high standard car that drives as good as it looks."

Sports Car Monthly (4/05) comment from Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction 1/05: "Black/red leather. Odo: 60,193 miles. Perfect panel fit. Full restoration by previous owner in 2003. Near -perfect gaps. Chip in paint over left rear wheel. Minor scratches on driver's door chrome. Minor rippling in metal, but otherwise very nice black paint. Electric fans, aftermarket radio. Some mud underneath but looks clear of rust. Clean, tidy engine bay. Recent Interstate battery. Immaculate throughout; could be competitive in concours at a regional level with very little work but not a national contender without a total redo, Jaguar judging being as fanatic as it is. Cond: 2. Sold at $58,320. Purchased for $46,440 at last year's B-J auction by an SCM subscriber, with 59,780 miles showing. $11,880 gross profit probably translates into about breaking even plus a little after fees, commission, insurance, etc. are factored in. Hope the 413 miles covered were fun ones. Restoration costs haven't gone down in the past year, so this was not a crazy buy, but getting to the fully-priced level for a Series II."
