Ebay item 11/13/03
Current bid $4,502 (Reserve not met), 1 bid, 9 days left in auction.
1961 Jaguar XKE Flat Floor Coupe. Has welded louvers. Very early car built in December of 1961. Number 117th coupe built. Car was purchased in late 1980's and had been in storage for 17 years before I bought it. Car was in Hawaii at one time. Last ran and drove in the late 80's. Motor turns- it is NOT locked up. This car is listed in the Jaguar Registry and in the book from Dr Thomas F Haddock in the "Jaguar E-Type Six Cylinder Restoration Guide Book" on page 217. This is a restoration car. The air cleaner and plenums also come with the car but are not shown in the photos. I have the glass for the front head light and front bumper as well. This car has all the early things going for it. Restore a car that will hold value. Floor board on the drivers side and around battery area are 5%rusted away due to battery corrosion. Normal rust. Chassis # 885117, engine #R2366-9 with a 9.0.1 compression ratio. Tranny # EB 1187, body # V1113, Engine block #1-12-61, screen washer #078337D 12V 7-61, brake master cylinder #C17234. Included with the car is a spare book on Jaguar restoration by Haddock with all the early parts highlighted and numbers filled in. Also a Haynes Workshop Manual. Car rolls and tires hold air. No radio. All gauges and dash are in place. This car has a clean Nebraska title.

I bought 885117 in November 2003. The Jag arrived in highly original, though dilapidated condition. The engine number is R3961-9 (from an E-type OTS made in March 1962, according to JDHT), not R2366-9. The car now is undergoing professional concours restoration. Expected completion date is mid-2005. I will compete the car in concours competition, then either keep it as a show driver or sell it and buy another E-type for restoration!

885117 is 11 months into a concours restoration. Monocoque still being worked. Engine overhaul 90% complete. Outer sills, flat floors, trunk, and rear fenders to be replaced. All original features will be retained, including Moss tranny, Series I seats, and Kelsey-Hayes bellow-type. servo,

Thanks for your comment on 885020. I own also one "outside latch" roadster and think also that not all of the first 500 cars were fitted with outside latches.
Nevertheless you should have kept 020 and sold 117. And people love to believe that all 500 were outsides.
