Car currently listed on EBay:
Description: Jaguar : XKE
1972 Jaguar XKE Series 3, 2+2, V12
Year: 1972 Warranty: No
Miles: 33361 Transmission: Automatic
Engine: 12 - Cyl. Doors: 2 doors
Interior: Beige/Tan Exterior: Brown
VIN Number: 1S74073
Vehicle Description: I am the third owner, having purchased the car in non-running condition from an estate sale. I intended to get the car in driving condition and restore it as a hobby in my retirement. However, I have had the car for 4.5 years and have yet to find time to work on the car. I have 5 more years to retirement and have decided to give someone else the pleasure of this lady's company.
Vehicle Condition: Vehicle has not been run on city streets for about 8 years due to failed fuel pump and brake master cylinder. I have fired off the engine by manually feeding fuel to the four carburetors, but that roaring 12 cylinder Vroom quickly dies without fuel. Fuel system needs cleaning and new pump installed.
Brake master cylinder needs to be replaced or rebuilt.

Car returns to ebay 1/24/05
Opening bid $5,000.00 (Reserve not met), no bids yet, 6 days left in auction. Sale is from same location. Sellers description is basically the same as above however the below additional comments were added.
The car has not been run on city streets for about 9 years. During that time, she has been garaged in air conditioned or humidity controlled space, so there is no body rust or moldy leather found on other examples. The only place that I have observed rust is in the exhaust system mufflers. The engine will fire off smoothly if I manually feed fuel to the four carburetors. However, that roaring 12 cylinder Vroom quickly dies without drawing fuel from the fuel pump. The fuel system needs cleaning and a new pump and filter installed. The brakes are another area that needs attention. Although the brakes worked when I bought the car 5 years ago, I noted the pedal now goes to the floor and the emergency/parking brake must be used to brake when pushing the car in/out of the garage. There has been no sign of brake fluid on the garage floor, so the master or slave cylinder must be by-passing fluid internally and should be rebuilt or replaced. Surprisingly, all Lucas electrical systems are working. I installed a new battery and all lights come on, the starter worked, the engine fired, even the original British-Leyland AM/FM cassette player works. The interior is in good shape. The seams in the front seat bottoms are beginning to pull apart. The previous owner installed sheep skin seat covers to protect the leather underneath. The carpets, dash, door panels, rear seats and rear hatch are all in good shape. The headliner is showing age. the air boxes are removed, but all components are available. Never having driven the car, I don’t personally know the condition of the transmission and air-conditioner. However, I was told by the previous owner’s family that the car was in good operating condition before the owner died.
