I am listing this car for my grandfather. He bought the car in 1982 from the original owner, to this day he's put about 4000 miles on it since he bought it.
This was a nice rust free car to start out with, but in 1999 he decided to do a full restoration, If I remember correctly, there was about 50 or 60 grand spent on the restoration, I'm actually afraid to ask again. Everything was gone through including the engine and drivetrain. anything that needed replaced was, including a bunch of parts that didn't need replacing. In addition there was a custom brake booster installed to get rid of the problematic factory booster, the new setup works wonderfully, and only a purest could tell by looking that its not factory. the original brake components are included with the car.
The exhaust system is all new stainless steel from XK,s The exaust is the earlier version with the four tips instead of two, grandpa liked the look better.
The paint is obviously not a factory color, it is a color change paint that cost 2500 a gallon in 1999, this is a multicolor color change paint, not just a 2 or 3 color paint that is cheaper and more common. Its really pretty impressive.
The only thing that wasn't replaced were the tires, I don't know why they were not replaced other than he liked them and they are still in good condition.
As I said the car was restored in 1999, it hasn't spent a night outside since then, in fact I dont think there are enough miles on it to properly break in the engine.
The car has been sitting but it gets driven at least a couple times a year, usually only around the block, but thats enough to keep everything lubed and working.
The car needs to be cleaned, mainly its just dusty from sitting in the shop, it would be back to show condition with a good detailing and wax job.
There are only 2 things that I can think of that need repair. The tachometer stopped working for some reason, the tach itself may need repair, or it could be a bad connection, I would assume the worst. also the weatherstrip on the drivers door got pinched in the door at some time, its taken on the pinched shape and may need to be replaced.
I don't think there's anything else that needs attention. If you are serious about the car, I can put you in touch with the owner, he can do give you a history of the car. I can also give you any info you need, if I don't know the info you need, I will get it for you.
This car was originally blue, there is a pre restoration picture included with the other pictures. Some of the pictures were taken just after the Restoration, others are current. One picture is a group of photos that were taken during the restoration. let me know if you have any question's about the pictures.
Overall this is a nice car, I'm sure its still in better condition and more reliable than a new one would have been.
Please feel free to ask any questions. If you want to look at the car, its located in Vancouver Washington, just contact me, I will arrange an appointment.
As far as payment goes, a small 300.00 down payment through PayPal will be required to make sure your serious, or something along those lines as discussed with the owner.
A wire transfer or something comparable for the balance will be due before the car leaves. again payment methods can be discussed with the owner.
If you need shipping, I can usually arrange shipping for 1.00 a loaded mile up to 1200 miles, that would get it to southern California or Arizona. beyond much more than 1200 miles you would have to arrange for your own transportation.
I hope I didn't miss anything, Feel free to ask as many questions as you want.

Typically convertibles are spun off of coupes, but sometimes it goes the other way. Like the Porsche Cayman that was based on the Boxster, the Lotus Exige spun off of the Elise, and the Jaguar F-Type, which arrived as a roadster before the coupe debuted. But if the latest reports are to be believed, Jaguar could be planning something in between.
Sun, 10 Nov 2013 17:19:00 EST
According to Auto Express (which has, mind you, been known to stretch the rumors out some), Jaguar is toying with the idea of offering a partial convertible version of the F-Type - something Porsche would call a Targa (and which we would too if Stuttgart weren't so litigiously protective of the name). The additional roof configuration would give the F-Type three body-styles, giving its customers more choices.
It wouldn't be the only sports car to offer three roof options: There's the Porsche 911, of course. Ferrari once offered GTB, GTS and Spider versions of the 348 and 355. The Chevy Corvette has been offered in all three forms, as was the Pontiac Solstice many moons ago. But that kind of variety in roof configurations has become scarce. Jaguar's decision reportedly depends on whether it can make the business case or not. Do you think there'd be enough demand for a lift-roof F-Type?
Patrons of this year's Los Angeles Auto Show will be able to get their first glimpse at the new Jaguar F-Type Coupe, but the new hardtop sports car will be shown off to an even greater audience in early February. No, we aren't talking about the Chicago Auto Show - we're referring to the Super Bowl. Jaguar will debut its first-ever Super Bowl ad during the second half of the big game on February 2, 2014, and the sleek new F-Type Coupe will be the star.

According to Jaguar, the ad campaign will pose the question, "Have you ever noticed how in Hollywood movies, all the villains are played by Brits?" And for all you social media mavens out there, Jaguar will launch a specific hashtag to go with this marketing: #GoodToBeBad.
British director Tom Hooper is responsible for the ad, which is being filmed in London. Americans will get their first glimpse at the campaign this weekend in the first spot, called Disruptor, but the big F-Type Coupe spot will not air until Super Bowl XLVIII in February.
Jaguar is working up a short film to coincide with the US debut of the company's new F-Type. Desire will feature actor Damian Lewis in the lead role opposite Jordi Molla as the main villain in the story. The whole of the action will take place against the picturesque backdrop of the Chilean desert with filming starting early next month. According to Jaguar, the story will follow Lewis as he plays Clark, a man who delivers cars for living. Things get exciting when he crosses paths with a young woman played by Shannyn Sossamon.
With music by Lana Del Rey and some serious production value, Desire sounds keen to take its place among great automotive advertising short films like the BMW Driver series. Jaguar has released a quick teaser, which you can check out by heading over to the F-Type site. You may also take a peek at the full press release below for more information. Expect to see the film debut early next year.
