Ebay item 5/11/19

Given most Jaguar's propensity to rust in the most demonic ways possible, it's always a smart idea to buy a U.S-spec example without all the evident trouble areas. This one has obviously spent its entire life someplace where snowfall almost never happens, and all the critical areas like the foot boxes, floors, and cowl structure are all solid, and even though the body amount area could be addressed at some point in the future, this is one solid Jag. The brown finish is unusual on an E-Type, but combined with the lovely two-tone leather interior, it's a classic combination that looks as right as a single mat in an oak barrel. The massive forward-tilting hood fits as it should, with good panel alignment on the doors and rear hatch as well. The finish is far from perfect and shows its age, but it's obvious that someone loved this Jag, and no matter what the color, it will always be the center of attention. The factory chrome is still bright and presentable (take a look at that awesome wrap-around rear bumper), and the rare vinyl top around the sunroof adds even more maturity and sophistication to this elegant British gentleman.
A professional detail is needed to restore some former glory, and once that is completed the cabin will be fit for the Queen. The instrument panel and gauges seem to be original, and it's clear that some TLC went into ensuring that things look proper and clean. The slender shifter for the smooth-shifting automatic is uniquely Jaguar, and Series II perks include powerful A/C with R134a refrigerant and an AM/FM stereo.
The engine bay is a bit dirty, but you could clean it up and take it up a notch, and there's plenty of evidence of recent work, including a newer alternator. These cars have an undeserved reputation for being unreliable, but this one runs and drives very well and doesn't seem fussy in the least, so you should enjoy it every chance you get. The automatic transmission shifts cleanly, the suspension nails Jaguar's combination of comfort and sporting, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are confidence-inspiring, even 49 years later. Gorgeous chrome wire wheels complete this Union Jack and carry 215/70/15 blackwall radials.
