1965 Jaguar E-Type Roadster E type
1965 Series I Jaguar XKE (E-Type) Roadster, riginal two-owner, ust- free California car. This car was acquired by an ex-Jaguar dealer and racer, ith a goal of aconcours-level restoration. Unfortunately, his individual (a family member) had a stroke over a year ago, nd will not be able to complete the restoration. To the best of my knowledge, he following has been completed. This E-Type was dismantled and taken to bare metal to ensure smooth, traight panels, nd then finished in original red paint. All brightwork chrome was triple-plated to the highest of standards, or a flawless shine. This beautiful roadster sits on new chrome wire wheels and tires. The perfection continues to the underside,as many items have been attended to, ncluding a correctly finished underside, ew suspension, rakes, ushings, nd stainless steel exhaust. The original, umbers matching, nbsp;4.2 litre engine, nbsp;was fully rebuilt to factory specifications with new pistons, il pump, iming chain, earings, alves, uides, nd seals. The head and carburetors were fully rebuilt, nd the driveshaft was properly balanced. The same holds true with the transmission and rear-end. As with all aspects of this restoration, ew old stock parts were used whenever possible. To the best of my knowledge, his is what is remaining on the restoration: the seats and dash have been redone, ut the rest of the interior needs to be completed. The car, owever, omes with new factory-correct black leather interior, ncluding carpets, oor panels, nd soft top.All of the chrome parts are complete, ut need to be installed or mounted. The windshield is new, ut needs to be installed. The fueline needs to be replaced and some of the electrical needs to be attached and/or tested including to start and run the engine.The brakes need to be tested. All other necessary safety checks, tc. E-Type prices have been climbing steadily and I do not see them going down on these older Series 1 models. I am offering the car as-is.
