Description: An opportunity has arisen to jump on another car I’ve been after for a while, so something has to move and it’s going to be the ole’ Jag. Jaguar Heritage Docs, Originally Willow Green. Not sure when it was painted. What’s new:
- Complete wiring harnesses from SNG Barratt (including rocker switches, fuse panels, turn signal switch, 3AW, 4TR regulator, alternator, ignition switch, battery cables, heater fan, washer bottle, connectors, brake reservoir caps, choke and hand brake switches)
- Stainless exhaust system
- Gas tank
- Exterior Lights; Tail lights, front parking/signals, back up
- Fresh oil change (spin on oil filter adapter), Redline MT90 transmission fluid change.
I’ve been driving it around since I’ve gotten everything done and it starts right up and runs great. The body is in good shape with no rust/rot through. There was scale on the drivers side toe boards, but it wasn’t rusted through.
Body: the red is an older respray and there are a few dents on the car with the worst being the driver’s side rear quarter panel. The top is an older vinyl style which lacks weather stripping around the windows. Glass is in good shape. Bumpers are fair. Interior is presentable, but not anywhere new. I installed 80/20 carpet (glued to fit) and it looks good and fits the part. I removed the headrests and to do that sliced the seat covers on the back to get the set clip off to remove them. They need to be replaced anyway and the headrests needed to be removed (they were disintegrating internally!). Looks much better in my opinion. Dash is one of the cheaper covers glued on. Works, it isn’t perfect.
Drivetrain: it’s a NOM 4.2 from a 66 with three SU carbs. I added the spin on oil filter and it’s full of 20/50 VR1 oil (zinc additive already in there). Starts up and runs great. A few minor oil leaks but nothing major. It’s rather dirty and could use a good cleaning. Transmission isn’t original either and I do have a hard time going from 2nd to 3rd when winding it up. Slow shifting isn’t a problem, but reviving it up I skip 3rd and just go to 4th. Not sure what the deal is but haven’t looked at it closely to adjust anything. Rear is dirty as well. Not sure of the ratio or how to find it.
I’m trying to be as clear and honest as I can and can send more photos of whatever the buyer may want. I’ll have some videos uploaded to YouTube this week: cold start, driving, walk around lights. Just ask and I’ll get you the pics you may want. The car is titled as a 1968 and has been since 1994 (I have a registration slip showing it) and probably before that. I think for a good start on E-Type ownership. It’s driver quality all the way around which makes it fun to actually drive and enjoy without fear of a ding or scratch. For someone looking to get into the E-Type world, this one would be a great entry with a lot of good maintenance things already done.
