1969 Jaguar E-Type1969 Jaguar E type 2+2
This car started as a very low mile (7266 actual miles!, solid driver that the previous owner drove for awhile and then decided to go all out and have a frame off restoration done without regard to expense. It was born silver with dark blue interior. Automatic with air conditioning. He had the car built for his wife and wanted it to be more comfortable, ide and handle better, nd be more reliable than factory. He also wanted to show it as well. The restoration bills alone totaled over 100k! Every piece was touched!
The engine was swapped with a new ford crate 302 (the original matching numbers 6 come with). A new TCI ford automatic with overdrive trans was installed (the original Matching numbers Jaguar automatic is included). The rear end is the original but it was completely gone thru. Every area of the car was touched! It has an upgraded aluminum radiator. Ice cold Vintage air system. Power steering and brakes. All that was done in the engine compartment can be reversed to stock if you choose so. As it is right now, t fires up right away and cruises down the road straight, ou can run 80 with ease. No rattles whatsoever. As I said, he previous owner built it for his wife so he wanted it to drive easy and be reliable. The car is very well sorted out.
The paint work was done by a high quality builder with a long standing reputation of building quality cars. It is a very straight, ut does have a couple chips around the edges of the rear boot. There has been a little over 5k miles put on the car since completion. It is a dark grayish- green color. I have paint for touch ups if the new buyer needs The undercarriage is just as clean as the top. There was no undercoating applied. All the chrome, lass, eather striping, tc was all redone. He chose to remove the front bumper corners but they are included with the car as well.
The interior was completely reworked as well. The seats were recovered in leather over top the original frames. The seats and headliner and absolutely beautiful. The console was reworked with built in speakers and a secret audio unit. All gauges work. New Ron Francis wiring. They did replace the Jaguar speedometer and tachometer with new, ut the originals are included. The title states 7266 actual miles (see pic) and original speedometer matches, owever I am selling 7266 NON ACTUAL miles due to the fact that the speedometer was changed. The aftermarket speedometer in it now shows the miles accumulated since the frame off which is just over 5000. This is a common practice when classic cars are completely restored, just like to keep things straight. One of the pics is of the car prior to restoration. In hindsight, hey would have been wise to not touch the car, keep as a very low mileage survivor and save the over 100k they spent on the restoration, ut this is where it is now. He just wanted to start with the best car he could find to have his car built upon. The guy was extremely picky and precise.
This is an stunning car. Upon inspection the high build cost is evident. I like to try to disclose all issues I know of, o when the new owner comes to pick the car up there are no surprises. The few things I see are, he couple chips in the paint as previously mentioned. These are not at all excessive, ust what you would expect from the limited usage the car has had since completion 5000 miles and 7 years ago. The passenger exterior door handle sticks. I have not had it looked at yet. I feel a little hesitation going into overdrive. It does go, t just seems to me it takes a sec longer than it should. This may be indicative of these transmissions when adding overdrive, ut I'm not sure, his is the first Ive owned with this kind of set up. I am a purist and all the cars in my collection are bone stock. I thought of swapping the original engine and trans back, reinstalling the original front bumper corners and speedometer and tachometer, ut this car is way too nice to touch. I will be more than happy to show the car to serious buyers and send any additional pics needed. I will also be happy to discuss the car 317.667.6240. The reserve is set very fair for what the car is. It is being sold AS IS, HERE IS. The factory warranty expired long, ong ago. I require a $1000.00 deposit via pay pal with 24 hours of the end of the auction. Full balance is due within 7 days of the end of the auction. No exceptions. I do not offer a lay away plan. I would like the car picked up within 30 days of the end of the auction. The car, itle, nd any of the extra parts will not be released until all funds are accounted for. Please don't expect to come with a cashiers check and expect to take the car home before it clears thru my bank. Cashiers checks aren't what they used to be unfortunately. Thank you for your interest.
