Typical Male Baby Boomer who fell in love with E-Types back in the late 60's early 70's. First one was '68 2+2. A great car to learn about mechanics and how to improvise in time of need and with little funds. It's great to finally have the means to pursue a childhood love.

27185 MILES, ON EBAY 11/07

URL for above auction:
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jaguar-E-Type-Series-3-Jaguar-XKE-V12-Series-III-Coupe-N ...

Description:
We purchased this 1973 XKE V12 Coupe in 2005 as a reference car for the restoration of a '74 roadster. Last year, I decided I would keep it when it was no longer needed as a reference car so; I had the following work performed:

Replace transmission pan gasket
Replace battery
Replace spark plugs
Replace sway bar bushings
Replace upper and lower ball joints
Replace forward, lower arm bushings
Replace outer tie rod ends
Replace front shocks (XK Unlimited)
Now, I've decided to sell it due to lack of room (got a good deal on another roadster) this coupe was a southern CA car and the prior owner painted the rain shield and the air boxes blue. The car is close to being original, runs well, doesn't overheat, and has no rust that we've found. There was not a lot of disassembling on this reference car, mainly just for the visual guidance of exposed items. Mileage is believed to be 100K plus. Paint still retains a gloss, color is original, all pictures were taken on Sunday, November 11th on an overcast day (car is located in Seattle/Tacoma) the four exhaust tail pipe setup was also on the car when I purchased it.

THIS IS THE ONE!!! Better than the rest!

Stunning,head turning rare Azure Blue Jaguar E-type!

ONLY 29000 original miles , rust free, everything works, paint is near flawless, panels straight, no accidents, original leather in fantastic condition and original dash/ interior with the exception of the carpets which I replaced with correct ones from a Jaguar specialist. I also had the two front seats fitted with new cushions along with the headrests underneath the original leather.

Reason for sale- just bought two more Jags and need the space.

This car has been owned by me for a little under a year and a half. It was originally owned by a gentleman in California then purchased by another chap over 10 years ago. He had the car professionally resprayed with the absolutely correct color. The car is matching numbers and I have the Jaguar Heritage certificate from Jaguar UK to authenticate its pedigree.

The last owner kept the car with his collection in an air conditioned warehouse and put less than 2000 miles on it. It was washed and cleaned weekly during that time along with all his other cars.

I purchased it and replaced any and everything that I felt or advised was needed to upgrade the car, make it a daily driver and remove any of the challenges that can occur with the V12 overheating issues that some have. Everything on the car is original or replacement from Jaguar specialists in the UK and the USA. This has been a labor of love and the new owner will not only be thrilled with this car but will turn heads.

Air Conditioning runs ice cold.

I also had the wheels upgraded removing the steel wheels and replaced them with stainless steel spoked wheels imported from England, fitted with original refinished spinners and all new hubs, then had the tires imported from Vintage tires, part of the Beaulieu Motor Museum in England who still have the ORIGINAL Dunlop tires manufactured for the e-type. There are very few of these cars around that actually have the oriinal performance rubber.
I still have all the original steel wheels and hubs and they come with the car .

I only entered in a show locally once (on a whim) and won best in class. Im not into shows but for sure this will be great if thats your goal.

I am listing below some of the upgrades/ improvements/ work.
As of now this car needs nothing- it is totally turnkey.
I have a custom fitted car cover that comes with the car.

Not shown in pictures- the stereo has just been upgraded to a Retrosound unit that more closely matches the original.
New real Burr Walnut dash cover crafted for me out of aircraft grade aluminum faced with real wood. This upgrades the look of the Jag, but leaves the original dash underneath (great condition) protected and fits using the two screws that the dash has for access to the fuse box. Easily taken off in less than a minute if you prefer the black look. It perfectly matches the walnut gear stick shift knob.
New Stainless steel exhaust system and tailpipes imported from England
New upgraded 120amp alternator
New Upgraded starter motor
New Braking hoses, calipers, discs, shocks, master cylinder- totally overhauled system.
New Opius ignition system- this is a very expensive made to order upgrade that takes modern electronic ignition components fitted into the original housings. That gets rid of any heat issues the old Lucas system had and makes for much easier starting hot or cold.
New Head Gaskets and transmission gaskets- there was no problem before but because of age and the car essentially sitting for so long I wanted them replaced.
New Mota Lita Steering wheel in wood- I still have the original steel one if wanted by the buyer.
Upgraded radiator in aluminum
New high output CFM Audi fans fitted into the original shroud along with a pusher fan fitted in front of the radiator by the Jaguar Doctor in Boca Raton that eliminated overheating. This car is driven in the Florida heat and humidity with no issues.
New topgrade battery
New headliner
New carpets
New seat cushion inserts and diaphragms fitted under the original leather- two front seats.
Car has the original jack and the spare wheel is brand new with new dunlop tire.
Comes with two sets of keys, an owners manual and original Jaguar sales brochure.
Original Jaguar Heritage Certificate.

If you are looking for a super example you shouldnt hesitate with this one. The car has had well in excess of $25,000 spent on it to bring it to this standard and is a great deal. It is not like many you see with rust, rubber challenges, heating ignition problems, and poor paint,without matching numbers, This is the genuine article for the discerning buyer/collector.

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?
