Ebay item 7/20/17
Current bid US $40,000 reserve not met 1 bid 6 days left in auction, seller jagracin, 26k miles.
In 1989, this car was given to twin brothers for there birthday. Their father, a Jaguar collector in Plaano Texas had purchased the car in 1988. He had the car repainted and the interior re-done prior to presenting it to his sons. The original color was green, however the car was yellow when he bought it. The interior was tan. The brothers decided they wanted the car white with a black interior, so it was redone to their choice. The color was a correct Jaguar color and the paint was lacquer. In 1994 the engine was rebuilt and the engine compartment painted to match the car.
Since 1994 the car traveled less then 3500 miles and the current odometer reading of just over 2600 miles is believed to be correct. The vehicle ID is 1R26458 Ebay doesn't allow for the shorter ID numbers that were used on the earlier Jags
The car is a series two introduced in 1969. I personally drove the car from Tallahassee to Clearwater, with absolutely no problems.
