Sellers description:
1969 Jaguar XKE Roadster
The car you're looking at is a 1969 4.2 Type 2 roadster with 11,000 actual miles! This stunning convertible had originally been purchased by a gentleman from Bloomfield, Michigan and was subsequently sold through Hemmings Motor news to a buyer from Oregon in 1985. It was parked in a heated garage for the next 25 years before being sold to a classic car store in Portland, Oregon and is now in our possession. The Willow green paint and black leather interior are original and gives the design added flair. We have given this car a thorough re-commissioning which entailed an overhaul of the cooling, fuel and brake systems. The E-Type is celebrating its 50th anniversary and this car pays the perfect complement to its existence.

Car to be at auction 2/12
www.bonhams.com/usa/auction/19680/lot/358/

Auction description:
Sale 19680 - The Scottsdale Sale, 19 Jan 2012
Arizona, Scottsdale
Lot No: 358
Approximately 11,000 miles from new, incredibly well-preserved
1969 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Liter Series 2 Roadster
Chassis no. 1R8626
Engine no. 7R 4387-9
*4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine
*150 mph performance
*Four-speed manual transmission
*The world's greatest crumpet catcher
*Remarkably preserved example
*Desirable rarely seen color
*Approximately 11,000 miles from new

Presented here is quite possibly the finest preserved Series II E-Type Roadster Bonhams has ever had the pleasure of offering. Chassis number '1R8626' was delivered in the striking and rarely seen shade of Willow Green, and was purchased new by Jack Kaufman of Bloomfield, Michigan. He drove the car rarely, and in 1985 advertised it for sale in Hemmings; it was then sold to Norm Fogelstrom of Creswell, Oregon, who kept the Jaguar in his garage and, with an eye towards preservation, never drove it. That is how, upon acquisition by the vendor in June 2011, this Jaguar had covered only approximately 11,000 miles from new. The E-Type retains its original paint, interior, glass, top, wheels, and even tires. Because the car sat for 26 years, the vendor took care to service the cooling system, fuel tank, carburetors, and brakes as needed. Here is a quite possibly unrepeatable chance to acquire an E-Type Roadster in one of the most desirable colors produced, a shoe-in for the Preservation Class at most any Concours d'Elegance. It will surely afford its new owner the pride of ownership that only a truly original example of the marque is capable of.

Estimate: US$110,000 - 140,000

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?
