Well, I’m actually not sure what I want. I don’t mind something that needs a little bit of work, but I’m willing to spend the money on a series one car weather it drives or not, hoping for one within Canada open to anything really, it just has to be a Jaguar E-type.

searchtempest.com is your friend. I searches nearly all the ads on Craig’sList and eBay

The single most important thing you can do, is to find somebody who knows these cars, and pay them for a PPI. It almost doesn’t matter what you pay for that, it will be worth it.

He already has one of the best wives on the planet, and this gift will bring him some additional joy in his life. Now, if I could find a woman like that, with some extra money, I would be even happier than I am now. I will check the dating sites and make a wish and bucket list just in case.

Welcome Ugo!

In West Vancouver, the below is for sale. So you would not have any import costs across the border…

I am in North Vancouver

69 OTS

And priced in $Cdn which is a discount on other cars you have seen prices of!!

Because it is an automatic!

Thank you guys for the information provided so far. It is a beautiful car.

If you mean the one in West Vancouver, I could go see if the car exists after you contact the owner and give you a visual assessment and verify it is not a scam!

Hi Ugo, welcome aboard. I am an E Type owner located in Calgary and would be happy to chat about the cars. Also, FYI, the Canadian Prairies Jaguar Club https://cpjc.ca/ has recently been created. This organization is affiliated with the Jaguar Club of North America (JCNA). It may be a helpful resource for you.

Ping me if you would like to chat.
