    The seller ended the previous ebay auction listing early because the item was no longer available for sale. Car under new owner returns to ebay on Jul-27-05 17:00:00 PDT:

    License plates have been removed from car for current auction, but previous auction showed California License 2YQS875. Among the many differences in the auction descriptions, it is interesting to note the discrepancy in how long the previous owner had the car - one says 30 years and the other says 15 years???

    Car now offered at:

    www.hemmings.com/classifieds/dealer/jaguar/e-type/2267545.html

    Seller's description:

    Location: Oceanside, California, 92056

    VIN #: P2R28273

    Transmission: Manual

    Condition: Good

    Exterior: Maroon

    Interior: Black

    This limited owner 1971 Jaguar Series II XKE Coupe is the last production run equipped with the 4.2-liter six-cylinder twin overhead cam engine producing 180 hp. A Series II XKE is very desirable because of its comfortable reclining seats as well as head rests, that were adjustable for height; the improved cooling system, and dual fans on the radiator. Leaping cat emblems were only placed on the side of the 1971 XKE bonnet and are a unique addition and symbol of this series. While the Series II E-type was more radically altered than its interim predecessor, the essential construction remained the same and the body work differed only in detail. Modifications were made to the front of the bonnet, increasing the size considerably, the headlamp scoops were altered so that the inner walls now splayed inwards, and the side/flasher were rather larger and positioned below the raised bumper. The vehicle also received heavier front bumper blades, motif bar, front and rear over-riders were changed, new square number plate at the rear, a different grille was used in the rear of the bonnet bulge, and the washer jets were finished in satin chrome to avoid the risk of dangerous reflections.

    A recent service performed by Classic Showcase included:

    • Pressure washed rear end

    • Overhauled power steering pump and installed power steering hose, and pressure hose

    • Flushed brakes and bled

    • Installed new stainless-steel exhaust, exhaust mounts, and exhaust manifold seals

    • Installed new heater pipes in dash, and heater pipe kit

    • Installed missing washer jets

    • Serviced the cooling system, R & R hoses/clamps; installed hose kit, water pump belt, and hose clamps

    • Installed new 12-volt battery

    • Installed missing rubber buffers on gas lid

    • Installed new clutch and brake pedal rubber

    • Installed four new black wall Vredstein 185/15 tires (4)

    It features factory air conditioning, but it will need to be serviced to blow cold. This is your golden opportunity to buy one of the last 6 cylinders made in 1971 before the 12-cylinder replaced it.

    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?
