1969 Jaguar E-Type Convertible
This is an excellent opportunity to own a quickly appreciating Jaguar XKE roadster in superb original condition. Selling out of an estate the owner has past away and this car is being offered well below market value. It was described to me as his "pride and joy" driven occasionally through the country roads near his home and farm. It was always garaged in a heated building and covered when not in used. It always received whatever care and maintenance needed to keep it in top condition mechanically. I was told it received one repaint about 10 years ago in its original regency red color as seen in the photos. It appears to be a very high quality paint job that has held up very well. I believe the trunk and engine area are still in the original paint. The paint shines like new but does show a few chips and minor blemishes consistent with a car that has been driven occasionally. I would describe this car as a excellent driver quality. The interior was redone at the same time and still looks great. Although the carpet could benefit from a good cleaning. The seats, doors, center console and dash look almost new. The top was also replaced and still looks new. It does not have a boot cover for the top in the down position.
Mechanically it supports the type of care described, as well as the low original miles. It starts right up and sounds wonderful. It holds excellent oil pressure, in or out of gear at any temp. at idle or top RPM, does not heat up at all and everything seems to work just as it should. It does not burn oil and has not left so much as a drip in my garage. Driving it is truly a pleasure. It shifts very smoothly up and down through all gears. It stops quickly and perfectly straight. It handles like an E-type should. Corners great and reminds you of a wonderful time when motoring in a British convertible on a sunny afternoon was a great past time. It is a rare classic which can be enjoyed in todays traffic. It has strong acceleration in all gears. No valve clatter under hard acceleration. Just the classic smooth power e-types are known for. The chrome is beautiful and shines like new. Steering wheel, guages, shift knob and dash all original and look great.
Early series I E-types have already appreciated to the point where few collectors can afford them and even if you could it's doubtful you would take one for a drive in the country without worrying constantly about your six figure investment. These series II cars are raising as well but still offer collectors a relatively affordable, better driving, alternative that will likely follow the series one cars as they continue to fetch record prices. Enzo Ferrari said the Jaguar E-type was the most beautiful car he had ever seen. The E-type roadster is one of the most recognized collectible cars in the world. It can be enjoyed in modern traffic and is one of the most comfortable classic sports cars you will ever drive.
The time to ask questions and complete inspections is before you bid. Once you bid you have agreed to buy this car at your bid price. The reserve is very low and I have no doubt it will sell. I reserve the right to cancel all bids and end the sale if the car sells prior to the end of this listing. I require a $1,000 Non- refundable deposit within 24 hours after the auction ends. No exceptions. The balance is due within seven days. I can continue to store the car for up to 4 weeks at no charge while you arrange shipping. If you live close to central Ohio I encourage you to come inspect this beatiful classic in oerson. If not I will endevor to accomidate third pary inspections. However; they will need to be done at my home.

In addition to the XJR, XFR-S and XKR-S GT models Jaguar is bringing to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, the manufacturer announced that the F-Type-based, D-Type-inspired Project 7 design study will make its "dynamic" debut at the festival, with driving duties assigned to Mike Cross, Jaguar's chief engineer of vehicle integrity. Here's the cool part: With Jaguar's Director of Design, Ian Callum, leading the team responsible for Project 7, it went from the drawing board to track testing in only four months, Jaguar states, with a claimed 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds and top speed of 186 miles per hour.

Project 7, which was named in honor of Jaguar's seven wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, will be making runs up the hill at Goodwood over all three days of the festival, which starts at the Goodwood House in West Sussex, England, this Friday.
Far from a fragile concept car, Jaguar says, the single-seat Project 7 is a fully functional sports car. It uses the all-aluminum chassis and body of the F-Type, retains that car's 550-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V8 and eight-speed automatic transmission but features lots of bespoke carbon fiber aerodynamic bits, some of which were inspired by the Le Mans-winning D-Type of the 1950s. The most obvious nod to that classic is the rear fairing with integrated rollover hoop - the F-Type's convertible top is gone. The windshield was also lowered, giving the roadster a more rakish silhouette as it sits on 20-inch forged-alloy wheels with carbon fiber inserts.
It is a rare day when automakers line up their current models and test cars right next to each other and allow us to compare them directly. However, Jaguar ending up doing just that during cold weather testing of the face lifted XJ, providing the perfect chance to see just what the company is changing.

We spotted the refreshed XJ testing last year, and it hasn't evolved much since then. The updated model sports clear turn signals and a slightly revised front air dam. The modifications are similarly minor at the rear. The bumper appears to dip down slightly further on the new sedan. Thankfully, those gorgeous taillights are still draped over the back of the car. The exhaust outlets have switched to oval shapes rather than the current parallelograms. This alteration could just be chalked up to it being a test car, but the previous tester we saw had a similar design. It's possible that the camouflage could be hiding other revisions, but don't expect anything radical from the facelift.
Our previous report indicated that Jaguar is also planning some interior upgrades with new infotainment and ambient lighting. The company seems to feel that there isn't a point in messing with the XJ's design just yet, since all of the changes we see here are very subtle. No problems, here - to our eyes, the big Jag is still one of the prettier sedans on the road today.
Land Rover makes some of the most capable SUVs on or off the road, and some of the most luxurious too. But the British automaker isn't about to rest on those laurels - not when every other automaker assaults its territory with sport-utes of their own. That's why Land Rover has been working so hard on nifty new technologies from a depth-sounder in the door mirror of the Range Rover Sport an augmented-reality head-up display that makes the whole front of the car virtually disappear.
JLR's newest tech may not be ground-breaking, but its integration promises to make driving around town that much easier. The system syncs with the driver's smartphone and uses all manner of parameters - including driver habits, weather and location as well as the presence of other passengers - to make the commute go as smoothly as possible. Get into the car and it'll set the seat and mirrors for you. No big deal, because lots of cars do that. But it'll also set up the nav system to take you to work and the sound system to play your favorite music. Okay, getting more interesting.
Get in with your kids and it'll know not only that you've got to drop them off at school first (or remind you to pack their gym bag if they've got soccer practice after school that day) but that they might not enjoy that Chumbawamba album you've been listening to since college and it'll play something it knows you'll all enjoy based on your listening history. Then it'll switch back to Tubthumping once the kids are out, remind you of your morning meeting and alert those you're scheduled to meet with if you get stuck in traffic while finding you a better route to get there, monitoring fuel levels all the while and telling you if you'll need to tank up before you reach your destination. It knows if you like calling your mother on the drive to work and will lower the air suspension to make it easier to hop out once you get there.
