1967 Jaguar OtherI bought this car in California 5 years ago where it had been originally purchased by a Berkeley college professor who took possession of the vehicle at the Jaguar factory in Britain, oured through Europe in it and then had it shipped to his home where it remained in California its whole life. The car has no corrosion or rust anywhere in its body or under carriage. This is a rare and fun model being a 4 speed manual transmission, illow green exterior with a Sage interior and wire wheels.
The previous owner performed extensive restoration to the car renewing and replacing many components. The car has been completely repainted and the interior has been restored with a new headliner, ashboard, ats, ynamat sound deadening material, oor panels, arpeting, tereo system, tc. The interior is beautiful its only flaws being a few cracks in the front seats leather. The engine bay has been completely rewired, etailed and very original and period correct. An electric fan has been installed to the radiator with a thermostatic switch and override switch inside the cabin. All gauges and electrical are functioning. New shocks were installed and many brake and suspension components have been renewed. All of the exterior chrome is original, ntact with no dents or defects but with a duller patina that is fitting for the age of the car. The car has both front and rear window chrome surrounds complete which is rare as all new windshield and rear window gaskets have been installed. All door weatherstripping is new. The engine is strong with great compression on all cylinders. There is only one spot on the lower front passenger door where there is a small crack in the paint finish.
During my ownership I have had the following performed:
-complete new exhaust system.
-rebuilt the variomatic power steering box and gear.
-fixed a leaking seal on the transmission.
-replaced the automatic choke sensor in the cylinder head.
-shift linkage and bushings replaced.
-replaced internal driver’s door handle opening components.
-all new tires.
This Jaguar model is considered the most advanced and best driving of all the compact sedans that Jaguar manufactured from this period. The car still requires the following items and has the following defects:
the trunk interior panels need to be installed. They are included. Trunk weatherstripping is new.
-the overdrive on the transmission is not functioning.
I have the sun visors but they are in need of restoration and installation.
I have the tool case but not any tools in it except for the knock off hammer. There is a spare wire wheel tire in the trunk with the jack.
the doors lock from the inside but the keys do not seem to work from the exterior.
the shift boot does not stay in place.
the wipers are incorrect they seem to be for a right hand drive model.
-the rear interior dome light is not installed but is included.
-the small chrome covers that hide the center seams of the chrome windshield and rear window surrounds are not installed but are included.
-the front main engine seal does weep oil when sitting.
The car has extensive and complete receipts for ownership and maintenance dating back to when the car was first purchased. The provenance is amazingly complete as all original documents from the factory, mportation documents, hipping receipts and import duty receipts are all included in a large 3 ring binder book. The car also comes with all factory manuals, rochures and a Jaguar Heritage certificate. I am happy to help with shipping or bringing the vehicle to a local shipping service. You may call me at 503.515.5502. Thanks very much; it is a wonderful car.
