This is my private car. I am not a dealer. This car has never been taken apart and put back together. It is an extremely solid , a beautiful driving E-type with plenty of power and torque. It is an extremely comfortable car and  highway worthy . It handles beautifully and its 4 wheel disc brakes make it stop quickly and safely. The body gaps ,door fit, hatch fit and bonnet are like they left the factory. The floors are solid and all four jacking points are solid. The engine starts first time everytime and has that wonderful sounding exhaust .It has great oil pressure, around 55-60 at start up and 45 running. The engine is sweet and strong with no smoking. The transmission shifts smoothly and flawlessly. It does drip a few drops of fluid after a run but nothing serious.  The interior is all original and has great patina plus all original seat belts.The floor rugs are in great condition.  The headliner is beautiful with no sagging . The spare tire wheel well is totally solid and has the original padding glued to the floor from the factory. The spare tire is the original tire that came with the car but I would recommend using it strictly on the show circuit. The original jacking tools and vinyl pouch are in the spare tire well with the spare tire. The car has new wire wheels and tires with less than 1 thousand miles on them. Chrome is all original and in very good condition showing normal wear. All lights and lenses are in great condition with no cracks or broken pieces. Weather stripping is all original and does show its age in spots. All the glass is in great condition with no cracks or broken areas. All the gauges work except for the clock. The A/C unit turns on but doesn't blow cold and one plastic air regulator is missing a few louvers. The heater,windshield wipers ,lights etc. all work as they should. The body is very straight and the underside is very solid. This car has always been garaged and maintained . The previous owner was a collector who garaged the car in his multi car garage for the 10 years that he  owned it. I don't have any history beyond that. I've owned many e-types over the years , but this one is definately one of the most comfortable ,driveable and  roomy e-type I've  ever owned. Just get in it and go !!!
The car has always been  signal red with black leather interior. It has one repaint  by the previous owner when he first bought the car. The paint has a very high luster and looks great from 5 to ten feet away. On close inspection it has its imperfections but with a very shiny luster plus the previous owner used a  tiny artist brush extensively to apply touch up paint  to cover up small rock chips etc. There are a few small scraps on the fender arches to note. One in front of the drivers front fender and one behind the drivers front fender. One behind the passenger rear tire and one on the passenger front fender. Nothing major but they don't show up that well in the pictures. The voltage regulator , alternator  ,battery ,spark plugs all replaced  2/12 .  Car is ready to be driven and enjoyed. Please look at all the pictures on the ebay auction but also the many other pictures I posted on my separate shutterfly web site. Please e-mail me at to get the exact link for over 100 additional pictures. There are many detailed  underside, interior, exterior photo's of this beautiful car for your review.  The car comes with a very nice car cover ,a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and the original owners manual ,documenting this cars originality and pedigree.

Jaguar lifts the tailgate on XFR-S Sportbrake

Tue, 25 Feb 2014 08:35:00 EST

In the market for an amped-up Jaguar? Look for the letter R, adorning such performance models as the XFR and XJR sedans, the XKR coupe and convertible and the new F-Type R. But if it's bonkers performance you're after, you'll want to add the letter S into the mix as well. Jaguar uses the letters to connote its most hard-core performance variants like the two-door XKR-S and four-door XFR-S. And now it's applied them to the XF wagon as well, skipping the R treatment and going straight for the new XFR-S Sportbrake.
Leaked just the other day and headed for the Geneva Motor Show, Jaguar has now revealed its new power wagon in full. The XFR-S Sportbrake packs Coventry's ubiquitous 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine boasting 542 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque. That's the same version that powers the XKR-S and XFR-S sedan (not to mention the F-Type R and XJR), and drives the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic to rocket the estate to 60 in 4.6 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 186 miles per hour.
That may be pretty quick, but doesn't quite stack up to the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Estate whose 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 offers up 577 hp and 590 lb-ft for a 3.6-second 0-60 time, or to the Audi RS6 Avant whose 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 churns out 552 hp and 516 lb-ft for a 3.9-second 0-62 sprint. Though the Jaguar is only a little behind in output, it's a good second slower where it's measured. Granted that the Benz and the Audi are both all-wheel-drive where the Jaguar powers the rear only, but if four-wheel traction is how you get the power to the road, we wonder why Jaguar wouldn't fall in line. Particularly when the Jag's starting price in the UK (don't expect to see it imported here) is quoted at £82,495 - several grand more than the £76,985 RS6 but just shy of the £85,880 Mercedes gets for the E63 S-Model wagon in the UK (where the less potent 'base' version is also available as the cheapest in the bunch at £75,885).

Dick Van Dyke escapes his flaming Jaguar on the 101

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 10:31:00 EST

Actor Dick Van Dyke was caught in a dangerous situation on a Los Angeles highway (who are we kidding, every situation on an LA highway is dangerous), when his Jaguar XJ spontaneously caught fire. The 87-year-old actor/comedian pulled to the side and attempted to call emergency services when another motorist pulled him from the car. There seems to be some confusion as to whether Van Dyke was passed out or merely calling emergency services.
According to the photos and video from NBC and The Today Show, the car was thoroughly cooked in the blaze and is now a total loss. After the incident, Van Dyke's wife, Arlene, posted that the actor was "fine," sharing a Vine video of the star, the car, and a few CHP troopers that were on hand. Later in the day, Van Dyke tweeted a photo of his toasted sedan, saying, "Used Jag for sale REAL CHEAP!!"
You can view the Today show segment on the incident as well as Arlene Van Dyke's Vine video, below.

2014 Jaguar F-Type

Wed, 17 Apr 2013 11:57:00 EST

Stepping Into The Lion's Den With A Big-Hearted Cat
If you're like me - and our demographics suggests you are - you've probably never seen a new Jaguar sportscar at your local showroom. I'm 36, and it hasn't happened in my lifetime... and not by a little bit. Oh, there have been a string of XK coupes and convertibles, and as of late, there have even been some genuine high-performance specials - namely the R, R-S and R-S GT models - but their basis has always been the 2+2 grand tourer shell, not a lighter and smaller footprint with more intrinsic sporting intent. The truth is that it's been a half-century since Jaguar introduced a proper new sportscar. Today, most people know the brand strictly as a purveyor of wood- and hide-lined luxury sedans.
In fact, if you're not an enthusiast with some appreciation for the marque's history, it's a bit odd to hear Jaguar executives proclaim that they are a sportscar company and always have been. By their reckoning, the 2014 F-Type seen here is in fact a return to form, a Rip Van Winkled brand pillar reanimated and reimagined to take center stage. It's a sentiment that must be particularly odd for car shoppers in developing markets like China, where Jaguar hasn't even been selling cars for very long. Yet because the original 1961 E-Type is perhaps the most gorgeous car ever to lay ply on the world's roads, we're prepared to cut them some slack.
