Car returns to ebay 1/27/09
Current bid AU $5,100, 4 bids 8 days left in auction. Car now in Victoria, Australia. 53k miles.
This is a 1971 coupe that I imported from the US last year. Its a California car with minimal rust. The only rust spot I can find is on the RHS floor where the airconditioner drain has blocked and created a small wet area. Rust hole is about 35 mm diam. Easy to weld up. Sills and the rest of the floor look good as you would expect from a dry climate car.
Currently has V12 engine and trans out of the car. Without these in the way, conversion to RHD is straight forward as the dash is modular and its mainly a case of changing the steering rack, bolting in 2 replacement dash panels and relocating the pedal box. Engine turns over but has rusty coolant pipes which need replacement. AutoTrans appears good and is not a leaker.
Car was stored for many years in US and mileage is probably correct. Mileage listed is in Miles not Kilometers
Body is straight but has a few parking dents. Rear bumber centre section has been flattened slightly and needs repacement. Interior is tired. Tires are unuseable as old and hard. Car has optional airconditioning.
Car has a Boneville Speed Week sticker for 1976 on the windscreen so probably has been driven very fast at least once. If they keep records maybe you could find out how fast it went!
This car is a great project for someone mechanically minded who wants to get into E-types at the very bottom end of the price range. Normally the cheap ones are rusty heaps of junk. This one mainly only needs mechanical work. I have too many projects, so this one has to go. Since the bottom fell out of the Aussie dollar you are not going to get one direct from the States any cheaper than buying this one which is already here, is available to inspect and has a valid import approval. Car is in Lara near Geelong, Vic.

I now own this Series 3 2+2. I have started a ground up restoration of the car and have started by replacing the Right hand bulkhead and front floor, as mentioned by others there was some rust there so it's is now removed and repaired. I have decided to change the colour of the car from Primrose Yellow to "Opalescent Gunmetal". The car is just about to leave the paint shop and looks magnificent in it's new colour!
