[CANCELLED] 1967 E-Type OTS for full restoration

FOR CONSIDERATION – 1967 E-Type OTS for full restoration
SCAMMERS - DO US ALL A FAVOR AND DONT EVEN BOTHER! YOU WILL NOT GET A RESPONSE.
This is a Series 1 4.2 E-Type roadster – presently the most valuable of all the E-Types. This car was imported from the United States in the 1980s with correct customs documentation as confirmed with Canada Border Services a few years ago. The car is mostly disassembled with floorpans already removed, and has been awaiting a full restoration since that time. I purchased the car from an estate a number of years ago, and it has been dry stored in heated garage space since that time. Comes with its Heritage Certificate.
There are many parts with this car including head, engine block and gearbox (matching numbers), plus a second head that has been rebuilt at some point in time (came with the car). Comes with a used set of triple carburetors and correct 4.2 intake manifold. I have since acquired a nice used bonnet centre section. I have new front fenders (both correct for a closed headlight car), picture frame, rear licence plate panel, rear passenger under fender and new front frames from Martin Robey. Other parts of the bonnet assembly are present along with all the correct fasteners (also from Robey). I have many other E-Type body panels, most of which this car would not require. I also have new floors ready for installation (came with the car). Have much of the chrome including the door caps and the bumpers as well as the headlight glass and chrome surrounds. Also comes with a brand new windscreen still in its box. Car is sitting on its wheels and front and rear suspension, but otherwise is ready for the rotisserie. The car comes with a full original toolkit but needs a correct jack. There are quite a lot of additional parts (quite a number of them new) that will go with the car when sold. Have not fully inventoried those yet.
This car has some but not extensive rust. The door alignments are very good (no sagging apparent). Outer sills appear solid. Some inner sill rust perforation in the front of the footwells. Firewall solid. One door has some minor accident denting, but still fits quite nicely and should be easily repairable. No sign of structural accident damage to the car. Seats and (as I recall) dashboard (toggle switches) with instruments are present with the car. The car has its original factory hardtop. This is included but only in the event of an offer that is at or near the asking price. Price: $46,000US. Questions can be emailed to gsmoy@telus.net. Car is located in British Columbia Canada

Please always be careful before sending money or valuables to someone you don’t know. Use an escrow service if you’re not 100% certain of the identity and integrity of the person you’re dealing with.

By using this service you agree to resolve any and all disputes with the other party directly, and to indemnify and hold Jag-lovers harmless from any claims, losses, liability, or expenses (including attorneys’ fees) that arise from your use of Jag-lovers and this service.

Not sure what you mean by expressions of interest. An asking price would be appreciated as interest tends to have an inverse relation to price.

Sounds like he already has much greater expectations than what I would consider it’s worth.

What do you mean?

I see someone who has money invested in a car needing work and a bunch of parts and has decided not to continue with the restoration.

Thank you for the list price. Nice to meet another Geoffrey spelled the correct way😀

Correct. Thank you John.

Geoff - I sincerely appreciate the polite reply, as opposed to the sarcasm from some of our colleagues on this forum.

You are welcome Geoffrey. I would be tempted to have a look at it if I was 20 years younger and did not already have 3 cars to finish before I get too old to drive. Good luck with your sale.

It is a free market economy and anyone can have an asking price that they feel is appropriate and then let the market decide the actual sales price. One good place to research pricing is the online auction site Bringatrailer.com. BaT keeps records of all of their auctions including all the photos, bids, sale prices and more. They also have a model page summary graph showing how each model sold over time. I haven’t looked at the BaT E-Type model page but I suspect that there are probably dozens maybe even hundreds of examples of what sold for how much, and what the highest bids were for auctions that didn’t meet the reserve. Anyone researching E-Type pricing would benefit by looking at the BaT data as well as other places like Hagerty.
I have no affiliation with BaT other than a satisfied customer.

I apologize to the original poster for my inconsiderate comments. That was rude of me. The price when I saw it was very surprising to me as well as the price based on what it could possibly be worth when fully restored. But I should have kept quiet and bit my tongue.

I too, would offer the same apology.

Im hyper-aware of scamming in the field of cars, and it initially appeared to be something it as not.

Again, my apologies.

I sincerely appreciate the apologies. If the price of the car is too high the market will dictate an adjustment accordingly. I just want everyone to know that this is a completely genuine posting - it is certainly not a scam. The car has matching numbers and is eminently restorable. I have an XK120 to be getting on with and cannot take on this project. Hoping someone can bring this one back to its former glory!!
