Ebay item 3/7/13
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Stunning-1973-XKE-2-2-Coupe-Rust-Free-2-Texas-Owners-/18 ...
Car has a buy it now price of $36,999 for 20 days.

Sellers description:
The example presented here was initially sold to a private individual in Dallas, Texas and the car remained there for almost twenty years. The car was then purchased by a Houston based oil and gas magnate who gifted the car to his wife. She used and enjoyed the car for a little over ten years until her unfortunate demise. Subsequently, the car was placed into her estate (and titled as such) and then placed into storgage for a number of years.

On December 24, 2012, I acquired the car from the second owner's estate and immediately began to drive and enjoy it. Cosmetically, the car was virtuallly perfect and I drove it home on the day that I bought it.

I was told at the time of purchase that the car was never involved in an accident but that, at some point in the car's life, it was treated to a factory correct paint job. I was further told that this was the second coat of paint to grace the car's body. After thoroughly examining the car, I could not detect the presence of any filler or accident damage and believe that the representation made to me was entirely accurate. The paint shines brightly with only a few discrete flaws and gives no indication of accident, rust or filler, This paint is nicely matched to perfect and unpitted chrome and stainless steel brightwork. Given the pristine nature of the paint and brightwork, it was easy to see that the car had never been been abused or stored outdoors. Further, the car's wire wheels showed almost no signs of age and were not pitted or rusted in any manner.

The front seats appeared to have been recovered in factory correct leather and all leather surfaces remain in excellent shape. In similar fashion, the dash board was without cracks and appeared to be virtually perfect, as were the door panels and original rubber floor mats. The car's carpet was in excellent shape however, the car was sold with a completely new set of interior wool carpeting and padding. Additionally, the car came with its original owner's manual and an illustrated Jaguar manual specific to the XKE V12.

I bought the car for one reason - it was rust free and stunningly gorgeous. While I could see some minor imperfections in the car, I knew it was a high quality, original mile, 2 owner XKE and there was simply no good reason not to buy it.

Over the course of the holidays, I drove the car approximately 100 hundred miles. During this time, I noticed that the car did have a few performance issues such as an unwillingess to start and a hesitation under hard acceleration. Further, there was an odd clunking in the rear end which sounded a lot like the broken transmission mount on my TR6. Obviously, I wanted to fix these issues and, given the car's virtually perfect exterior, I decided a complete refurbishment of the car's mechanicals was warranted.

I transported the car to Houston's premier independent Jaguar repair facility (Motorcars, Ltd.) and ensured that all needed repairs were performed (and thoroughly documented). The repairs undertaken on the car included the following:

New front suspension bushings installled;

New front ball joints installed;

New inner tie rod ends installed;

New outer tie rod ends installed;

New control arm bushings installed;

New transmission mount installed;

New transmission spring seats installed;

Carburator floats and bowls removed and cleaned;

All carburators synchronized;

New cam cover seals installed;

New cam cover gaskets installed;

Engine cooling system drained, flushed and recharged with new coolant;

Dash switch for twin radiator cooling fans rewired;

New fuel filter installed;

New in-line fuel filter installed;

Gas tank sediment filter removed and cleaned;

New valve cover gaskets installed;

New valve cover plugs installed;

New inlet manifold gasket installed;

New air rail O-rings installed;

New plenum gasket installed;

New front brake hoses installed;

Four wheel alignment performed;

New steering rack mounts installed;

New transmission gasket pan installed;

New transmission filter installed;

Automatic transmission fluid replaced with Dextron 3 Mercon;

New transmission kickdown switch installed;

New gas tank inlet pipe fuel filter installed;

Fuel pump removed, disassembled, cleaned and reinstalled;

New Petronix Electronic Ignition installed; and

New Flamethrower Ignition Coil installed.

In addition to this, four new Dunlop Signature 215/70R15 tires were emplaced, a new muffler mount was installed and 2 new brake resevoir caps with switches (sourced from Moss Motors) were installed. Finally, the car's AC original AC system was recharged with R12.

Almost $8,000 was spent on the mechanical refurbishment of this car and, when driven, it truely shows as each and every one of my prior concerns has been eliminated. That is, the car starts on the first try (albiet with the choke fully engaged) and there is no "clu-clunk" sound when I hit a rough spot of pavement. Further, the car pulls strongly through all gears and does not hesitate with hard acceleration.
