1969 Jaguar E-Type

I purchased this cars years ago from my brother. He in turn had purchased it from an elderly man that had kept the car garaged in San Diego. There is no significant rust on the car. The paint was stripped early in the life of the car. The body was lead filled and repainted the original factory color. There is one small thumb side indention in the side of the right front fender. You cannot pick it up in the pictures. The original engine was rebuilt about 8 years ago by Walt's Jaguars in Idaho. It was built back to stock specs with the addition of some nice Iskaderian cams. The car idles nicely and you do notice the cams in the higher rpm ranges. A standard upgrade to the car is the addition of the T5 5 speed manual transmission. You run about 2700 rpm at 70 to 75 mph in fifth gear. Very relaxed. There is about 3500 miles on this set up. I upgraded the clutch to a center force unit and it has a good feel. I have a stack of receipts that go with the car. Maintenance has been kept up on the car. The work has ben professionally done by Auto House of Clovis. They maintain my other British Cars and they do quality work. The pictures should speak for them selves. There are small items to attend to as is there is with any older British car. The choke knob needs to be reattached and the oil pressure gauges needs to be upgraded to a mechanical unit. I have had mechanical oil pressure gauges fitted and the pressure is good. I drive the car once a month on a 150 mile round trip to visit my mother in Merced, a. The pictures were taken after my return last Sunday.Car runs great and has never overheated on me. The aluminum radiator was fitted when the engine was rebuilt. The fans were rebuilt at the same time. The interior is original and is worn in spots. There are no rips or tears. It is just a well maintained old car. I hate to see it sit. Somebody else should be enjoying it. I have too many other cars and I just do not drive this one enough.

To answer a few of the questions -Hi I will have to find a friend with a good camera. No rust on any of the suspension areas. It was repainted in 1980. It was painted the original factory color. The paint is good for its age. No checking or cracking. No previous accidents. Look at the gaps. They are better than most. The tires are about 10 years old. One should be replaced in the near future. The front end was recently aligned and the car does not pull to either side. My brother had the standard 5 speed kit installed. The supplier reconditions Camaro 5 speeds and sells a kit just for the Jags. He put the same kit in his Mark II. No issues with either one. The door seals are good. They are not dried out. The suspension pieces were changed about 10 years ago as normal maintenance. All the interior pieces and switches wok. Once in a while you have to tap on the speedo. The choke knob needs to be reattached. I recently replaced the headlight switch. The drivers seat back rest is limited in how far back it will recline. That can be adjusted. Radio, peakers are all in good condition. No significant leaks. There is a small drip or two from the center of the rear axle after a long drive. The brakes were rebuilt within the last 5,000 miles. Carpet is good. Remember the painting was done a long time ago. All the jams etc. match up with the rest of the car. It was a quality job. I have receipts for all the work done to the car including the engine rebuild. It is a nice presentable unrestored car. I have a 71 TR6 that is in the same condition. Personally I like cars like these versus the over restored cars you are afraid to take out and drive.
