Current owner is an auto hobbyist whos passion is to every few years, diligently search the world for his next en-devour. He brought this mostly original survivor to Ohio and pursued bringing the paint and top to a new level. This E-Type was sold new in St Louis Missouri and was located (by current owner) in Corpus Christi Texas with it’s owner of approx. 28 years and approx 6k miles. Current owner has enjoyed for about 2k miles and believes he is the 3rd owner of the Jaguar.

DETAILS OF CAR:

Paint

* Flawless paint finish without any noticed imperfections in workmanship, professionally performed in approx. 2018 by Advanced Auto Body Inc
* Documented 23 step body & paint process included in pics (see pics)

* Very shiny & highly reflective paint finish that has been expertly polished smooth

* Professionally accomplished in every way including details near edges and seams

* All painted panels match properly

* Current owner says the car has never seen rain since body restoration

* Being brutally critical, a couple pin head sized nicks on front and one nick behind LF tire (see pics)

Body

* Laser straight or as close as you could possibly imagine

* Flawless body panels with no waviness, dimples, creases, or denting

* Body fits of each panel have appropriate gaps between them (see pics)

* Proper panel fitting is a contributor to having no chipping between them

* Complete description of body restoration in website pictures (see pics)

Magnetic paint gauge

* With a couple random readings on each painted body panel, each is of steel construction and measure in the area of 15-30 mils of materials. This in our opinion would be typical of a restored body receiving a show quality finish.

Chrome

* Chrome appearance in general is mostly like that of a 1-2 year old vehicle.

* Owner indicated that much of the chrome was re-plated during the body restoration. (see pics)

* Areas that show a little more then 1-2 yrs wear would be front convertible top strip and drivers mirror with minimum pitting (see pics)

Glass

* Windshield and both door glass include the “SICURSIV Climaglass” signage

* Glass condition is again like that of maybe a 1-2 year old car showing almost no indication of wear or age

* It is all very clear, with no discoloring, no delamination, no bulls eyes, cracks, or wiper marks

* Rear window is very clear with hardly any age showing (new when top replaced) (see pics)

* A couple of pin head sized nicks detected on windshield but not noticeable

* Passenger glass track needs attention so it will align properly (see pics)

Cloth Top

*New top and cover were produced & installed professionally in approx 2018 by current owner

* Top and cover are clean with rich color, fresh like new stitching, and it’s obvious it has had very little exposure to even sunlight.

* Car was built new with a Black top but current owner felt a color similar to the interior color would be more appealing. (see Heritage Certificate)
* It was very cold out when we originally took pictures and we didn’t want to chance damaging rear window. Top down pictures are included from the Stan Hywet fathers day car show

Interior

* In general, Interior is as designed and manufactured by Jaguar without changes in design

* Headliner as expected looks nearly new with the top frame showing a little wear in some areas (see pics)

* Leather seating area was replaced in approx 1990 but has been cared for with proper PH cleaner and oils. It is very soft and shows slight wear on drivers bolster and edge repair. Foam retains decent support. (see pics)

* Seat belts are in good condition with good color but the retraction on the drivers belt doesn’t work freely as it should

* Dash black portion and top panel shows minimum wear with good color

* Gauges were all opened and cleaned by current owner and show as very clear

* Switches, gauge surrounds, and console show good shine and minimum wear

Trunk

* Locking nut for wheels show some wear that is typical from use

Engine Area

* Body restoration was expertly performed as you can see on the underside

* Engine area has been overall left original as designed with of course maintenance items and servicing as required (see pics of documents)

* Engine bay has been kept tidy and natural clean but not over restored

* Engine compression test was performed by current owner ( see pics)

* Engine reseal was professionally performed by Layland Motors for the current owner. An inspected like original transmission was also installed

* Services after purchased included, New radiator, expansion tank, fuel filters, spark plugs, battery, gear oil, engine oil, engine coolant, silicone brake fluid.

* AIR pump and plumbing was removed from engine some time ago and is boxed and included in the sale (see pics)

Underside & Suspension

* Underside has a nice appearance of black, stainless steel exhaust, and fairly clean suspension components

Conditions of Sale:
Auto Connection is a 3rd party agent, assisting both buyers AND sellers. The vehicles they sell are from private owners and collectors, and they provide advertising, marketing, and consulting services for individuals and companies.

The Auto Connection representative has physically viewed the item being sold. The information comes from the seller and other research sources. Auto Connection is not responsible for any misrepresentation by the seller and/or errors in research results, including history statements of vehicle history, repairs, etc.

This vehicle is being sold AS IS and without a warranty, unless otherwise stated.
Information about serial numbers, engine numbers, and any other codes does not guarantee a vehicle’s authenticity. These codes and numbers are not guaranteed to be the same as the information on the vehicle ID or vin, trim tag, engine block, cylinder heads, transmission, differential, or other components within this vehicle. Auto Connection does not guarantee documentation, authenticity, repairs, mechanical work, titles, odometer discrepancies, matching numbers, stamped engines, casting numbers, or any other codes, tags, or numbers. The potential for reproduction paper documentation exists, as well as restamped engines and reproduced trim/data tags.

Auto Connection has described this vehicle to the best of their knowledge, but does not guarantee the accuracy of the description. Prospective buyers are encouraged to conduct their own due diligence, including a physical inspection of the vehicle in person, or through a qualified third party inspector/appraiser.

The vehicle will remain for sale until a buyer has placed a deposit on it. This deposit is nonrefundable with the exception of the vehicle being severely misrepresented by Auto Connection or the seller, or stipulated in the Bill of Sale.

It is possible that this vehicle will be sold at a higher price than the highest bid (before or after the auction ends), if the reserve is not met. After the sale (if reserve is met or not), Auto Connection must receive at least a 10% deposit (wire transfer or official bank or cashier’s check) within 3 days of the end of the auction (or the Bill of Sale is signed). The high bidder/buyer has 10 days from this time to send the balance in full or final payment and inspect the vehicle (or have a 3rd party professional inspection).

For the most part, the vehicle for sale is not “perfect”. It is unreasonable to assume that every single flaw in the paint, body, engine, etc. or any minor mechanical items (such as a light not working) be considered a reason to refuse the vehicle. Major rust/rot, undisclosed problems with the frame, etc. might constitute a legitimate reason for the buyer to refuse to follow through with the sale. In that situation, the seller and buyer will try to reach an agreeable solution.

The buyer acknowledges that he has had the opportunity to inspect the vehicle to verify it is as listed and represented. He accepts the vehicle with all advertised equipment, options and accessories in “AS IS” condition with any faults or defects. The buyer will bear all future costs of repairs or correcting any defects that exist or may occur in the future. The seller will have no responsibility or liability for any consequential damages or injury caused by any failure or malfunction of the vehicle or any components. This car is being offered for sale by owner. The buyer and seller acknowledge that if the transaction is consummated and a dispute occurs relating to the sale, the laws of Ohio (the state that the car is located/sold) govern the rights and duties under the agreement.
