CAR PRIOR HISTORY TO MY OWNERSHIP
The following information was provided to me by the Attorney who sold the car to me in June, 2001;
The Jaguar Dealer for the 1969 Jaguar XKE Roadster,VIN# 7R15049, was Joe Eagle of Kansas City, MO.The car was first sold to a Doctor, Minister & PhD Poet at Unity Village, Missouri.He owned the car from 1970 to 1985 and accumulated 20,000 miles.The second owner bought the car in 1985 as an investment and accumulated 1,000 maintenance miles in 15 years.I purchased the car from the 3rdowner, a car collector/attorney who lived in Kansas City, MO, who purchased it as an investment as well.
The car has 29,799 original miles, 9,062 miles of which have been put on the car by me in the 18 years I have owned the car.I have NEVER driven the car in the rain, snow or severely cold weather and it has been garaged the entire time I have owned it.
The automobile has a Manual 4-Speed Transmission, an Original Owner Manual, original A/C Unit (very unusual in these cars), Original Tools& Jack, 4.2 Liter engine in line 6, removable Hard Top, 4-wheel disk brakes, Rack & Pinion Steering, Independent front and rear suspension and a Removable Hard Top with wench for raising and lowering and storing the Hard Top.Also included are Original, never before used 1969 Texas License Plates that can be used if desired.The car is in pristine condition, runs like atop and is ready to go wherever your desires take you.
After purchasing the car in July, 2001, I joined the JOANT(Jaguar Owners Association of North Texas) and the JDCNT (Jaguar Drivers Clubof North Texas).
A complete restoration of the car was begun shortly after the car was delivered from Kansas City to Dallas.This labor of love was performed by another JOANT Club Member, Richard Wright and was in keeping with the current JCNA rules at the time
This was done so that I could participate and compete in, the Local JCNA Club Concourse's in Texas and Oklahoma as well as in the JCNANATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP in the D3 Class (1969-1971 Driven Class).The goal, of course, was to Win a National Championship with my car.

**After Notification of the Win,I was later advised by JCNA that, according to a little known and seldom used rule, "following a year in which a car has won 1stPlace Nationally ina given Driven Class, it cannot be entered the following year by the same owner in the same classâ€.In other words, even though I was High Points Champion in 2003, the 2ndPlace Finisher was awarded 1stPlace.
In 2004, The CarWON 1stPlacein JCNA(Jaguar Clubs of North America) in D3 Class with a score of9.9987
Records and Score Sheets for EACH Jag Concours have ALL been kept.All Trophies for EACH Local JagConcours for each year, as well as BOTH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHIES will be included in the sale, documenting the originality of the car.
In 2005, the car was involved in a minor accident to the left side of the car.Another vehicle turned right into the left hand side of the car.Work done to the car was made accordingly to maintain its' National Championship Status.This means that many parts were replaced instead of being repaired.Those parts that were of minor damage were repaired and re-used after refinishing.The repainting was a "body off" - "Parts off" paint job.ALL paperwork documenting the work done/parts replaced and/or repaired have been kept to show everything that was done to the car and are available for perusaland will come with the car upon the sale.
This is your opportunity to not only own a Classic Jaguar, but to drive it immediately! This is indeed a head-turner! But be prepared to be inundated with looks, shouts, whistles and just plain admiration of the car from antique car enthusiasts to novice car lovers. Know the history as you will be asked constantly. And, from a shear enjoyment perspective, there is no feeling like cruising down the highway, wind in your hair, on a sunny day.
Your purchase can be contingent upon inspection and satisfaction that the car is as stated and pictured, described, and represented or can be sight unseen.
I suggest you personally inspect the car and/or retain a professional appraiser to inspect it. There is no warranty express or implied except I warrant the Title free of liens.If you purchase the car sight unseen and waive personal or professional inspection, there is no refund.
Your bid is a legal obligation to purchase the car.That takes the fun and mystery out of an auction.If the Car does not sell during the auction, it will be for sale after the auction at a price which may be higher than the reserve.Bid the price you want to pay during the auction when it is my legal obligation to sell if the reserve is met or exceeded.
Final Buyer will need to arrange the pick-up and the transfer ofthe car to wherever the final destination would be.
