Current bid $51,700 reserve not met, 10 bids 6 days left in auction. 45k miles.

Sellers description:
This is a truly special two owner Jaguar E-type Roadster. This car was built on May 6 of 1970 and was dispatched on July 14 of 1970. The original colors of this great car are British Racing Green with Beige interior. The first owner was Mr. Wentz of Freedom, PA who purchased the car in August of 1970. The car was then sold to the second owner who bought this car on 10/18 of 1976 and owned until we purchased the car in May of 2013. The second owner purchased the car with 31,170 miles from the original owner and this great Jaguar has only 45,941 original miles on the car. He drove the car less than 15,000 miles in almost 40 years!

We did the restoration to make it better than new, while maintaining its original integrity, as it is a great and one of a kind original car. The car was a nice reliable driver when we purchased it, but we wanted to bring it back mostly cosmetically. All numbers match on this car and it does have a Heritage Certificate. It also has the original owner's manual, original books, original service book stamped with original owners name, as well as original owner plate. Also, has the original jack, hammer, knock off adapter and jack tools. The car runs and drives great with excellent compression (160psi to 170psi) and oil pressure. The work we did to the car includes the following:
Complete strip of the body to bare metal and repainted the original British Racing Green. The existing paint was mostly original and not bad for original, but the body is so straight we decided to do a complete paint job. All new rubber seals were installed throughout the car.
All chrome was taken off the car and replated.
Like New Chrome wire wheels were installed with brand new radial tires.
A brand new leather interior kit (in correct original color) was purchased from SNG Barratt and installed. The original interior and dash were old and tired. We used the original interior to get an exact match for the color.
A brand new Cloth Tan top and Boot cover also from SNG Barratt was installed. The top frame was stripped and redone as well.
A gear reduction starter was installed for easier starting. The original starter is available with the car.
The carburetors were completely rebuilt.
The engine compartment professionally detailed and transformed while keeping originality (not just cleaned). The carburetors were cleaned and polished. The exhaust manifolds were ceramic coated on both the inside and outside for longevity and durability (will not crack and look great). The intake manifold was taken off and polished. The valve covers were stripped and repainted gloss black and the fins polished. All other engine components were stripped down and repainted or polished. The heater box was taken off, repainted and rebuilt as well.
New exhaust resonators were installed and newer exhaust was installed.
New front shocks have been installed.
Front calipers are rebuilt.
The original wooden steering wheel was polished and the wood was professionally refinished.
The original radio was repaired and does work great.
The original radiator was re-cored and tested. This Jaguar does not get hot and runs cool.
The underside (completely rust free) was extensively pressure washed (de-greased) and thoroughly detailed. This is one of the nicer original undersides and floors you will find on any Jaguar E-type.

Overall, this is certainly one of the nicer Jaguar E-type Series II Roadsters you will find on the market today. In addition, it has great ownership history with only two owners before we purchased this great car. This is truly a very special car, which is a great investment and can be driven anywhere as well.
