This car has been stored in an airplane hanger in the Kitchener/Waterloo area for many, many years. A non-running vehicle but complete in every way. Owned by a pilot for most of its life!

Hi John, thanks for the note on my E-Jag, I just purchased the car...yes the carbs have been converted to a two carb set-up (don't ask me why????) appears to be a later 4.2 set up but with SU's, alternator & air box same.
If you are interested in making an offer please do...before I start tearing it apart, once I start there is no turning back.

Ebay item 9/18/15

1962 Jaguar E-type, XKE, Series 1, Fixed Head Coupe, Flat Floor, with aluminum dash & console. Factory original color "Carmen Red" on Tan leather with a 3.8L DOHC triple carb engine.
The Jaguar was previously owned by an Airline Pilot for 27 years who had hobby interests in both vintage planes and sports cars. This car has been stored in his private airplane hangar for the last 15 years of ownership, I have included pictures as found in the hangar.
The XKE was bought new in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and has resided in Toronto (and surrounding area) for its entire life, being a Toronto car it has suffered from the usual floor plan, rocker panel & spare wheel well rot. The driver's floor has had an amateur repair done, and the passenger side for the most part is original but with a small patch riveted in. The body has had body work done over the years and there is plenty of 'filler' in several areas of the body. The bonnet shows ripples near the beading strips on both sides and is generally wavy due to poor workmanship.
The Jag has received two respray's, one in white during the early 80's and another in the early 90's in a shade of red close to the factory original color. During the 80's refurbishment of the interior was done. The seats were recovered in a burgundy leather along with the door and rear deck side panels. The headliner, console, and side cargo panels were re-covered in a burgundy velour.... very popular at the time, as many new cars were finished in velour.
The exterior paint was OK when done, but has suffered from amateur bondo patch work and paint blow-in from a rattle can.
Mechanically it is in non-running condition, but the engine does turn freely. It is a non-matching numbers car, but does have a 3.8L Jaguar engine. The triple carburetors are long gone, and have been replaced with a twin SU carb conversion, the rest of the running gear is original to the car. The brake and clutch hydraulics are not functional but the vehicle does roll easily and the gearbox can be shifted through all the gears.... the car steers as it should.
The Data Plate located on the passenger side just forward of the firewall was badly deteriorated beyond salvage. I tried to removed it to piece it together and put it into a ziploc bag but it came apart in so many pieces that it wasn't worth keeping. The vehicle VIN # stamped on the front right frame cross-member matches the registration and when searched through the Jaguar Registry, comes up as a 62' LHD Fixed Head Coupe.
In my opinion the car could be put into mechanically 'running condition' with little effort and would make a 'good driver. ' as is. To make it beyond this, it would require a full restoration.
There are no extra parts, tools, or jack.... what you see is what you get.
The series 1, flat floors, are of the most desirable of all the XKE series, this car for the most part is original and complete with a solid foundation. The vehicle shows no sign of previous accident damage. I have tried to take pics of all aspects of the car, I don't have a hoist which makes it difficult for taking pictures of the underside, however on request I will lay underneath and take some photos.

I am the owner of this XKE, I pulled the Ebay ad before the auction end date due to the controversy over the 'flat floor' comment in the description...there was so much inconclusive info. sent to me by the Ebay members I though it would be best to research it further & relist the car in the near future once more conclusive facts can be shown.

The Data Plate & Heritage Certificate have now been acquired for the Jag & the date of Manufacture is: March 28th, 1962. All other aspects of the car remain the same.
Information provided through the Heritage Certificate matches the VIN# on the frame & reflects that it is a left hand drive FHC exported to Canada.
