Ebay item 1/18/07
orthanticity.ie look like Dunlop. It is running Advans and comes with another 5 used tyres. Also have 4 original wires. Interior is all there but is showing it's age which is understandable. I am reluctanty offering my dream of racing an E Type as I have taken another direction and know that I will never finish it. Inspections are welcome. In answer to many questions, the car is curently on Victorian club registration which can't be transfered. It has import approval papers and can be fully registered in any state left or right hand drive. It also comes with a fifth mag wheel. The front suspension and trailing arms have been rebushed. The brake hoses have been replaced as well as all water hoses. Master cylinders were overhauled. Front pads are carbon metalic and the car drives and stops very well. It has had a new radiator and header tank fitted at some stage. Disributor was regraphed. I did approx. 1500 kls on the road before the oil pressure dropped and sump removed. The speedo does not work. It has a vehicle ID plate which matches to the chassis and engine number. I have found no rust. Carbs were overhauled with new diaphrams. A modern fuel pump was installed. Most if not all electrics work and a Bosch alternator was fitted. The right indicator doesn't self cancel. Lap sash setbelts are fitted. My idea was to get everthing working and then get it sprayed. It also comes with a second hand racing seat. There is no reason that it could not be turned into a very nice car for road or track. Can't think of anything missing. I will also throw in an original right hand drive dash. Car was originally opalescent light blue.

Ebay item 8/27/12
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Coupe-/320969400076
Current bid $16,600 reserve not met, 13 bids 3 days left in auction. Buy it now price $35,000. Car now said to be in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Sellers description:
This Coupe underwent restoration over a five year period. The previous owner rebuilt the suspension and engine. I had a new biscuit leather interior installed and changed the color of the car to opalescent gunmetal gray. The paint color is correct for that year. The interior carpeting is all new. The rear decklid was replaced and still needs glass(but is on order). The engine runs great, but is missing the air cleaner(and is on order). We did add a twin cooling fan to the radiator. The body is very straight. The windshield is new. The wooden seat frames were totally rebuilt. All the other glass is original. Everything works. The car just came out of the paint shop. The headlight covers and interior door panels have not been installed yet. With the engine compartment detailed, the car would be a primo example of the E-type.

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?
