1970 Jaguar E-TypeWhile it pains me to sell this car, it's time for me to let go of my 1970 Jag. I bought this back in 2006 when I sold my company. I just don't get to drive it that much. Below is a synopsis of the car.

In 2006, when I bought this car from a dealer in St. Louis, they posted the following ad - "This car was mentioned in a letter to the editor in the Sept '80 issue of Ejag magazine. The writer, Edgar Johnson wrote:
"I have an XKE roadster which I understand came from England via an army captain who ordered it special. It has 3 SUs, high 9 to 1 compression, plain valve covers, etc. The maker's plate states that itis a 9 to 1 motor. It is a 1970 car. I showed it at formal concours. In six shows it has six first place wins and four best of show wins with points of 97.7 or high 90s, but most of the judges knock the engine, saying it is not stock. Some say is one of a the kind. So how do I find out about this? I'm the fourth owner and I paid a lot of money for this car. It has 24,506 miles on it and is better than new. I bought it three years ago and have put only about 300 miles a year on it. Here are the specifics: On maker's (commission) plate: Car No. 1R12375; Body No. 4R6916; Engine No. 7R10248-9; Gearbox No. KE11500. "
I've driven it sparingly in Pittsburgh and South Carolina (<200 miles/year). I have the plaques and trophies from the judging mentioned above.
This was serviced by one mechanic in Pgh who specialized in Porsches and Jaguars. In South Carolina, the servicing has been done by Glenn at Performance Unlimited in Abbeville.
Seat belts and fuel filter have been added.
