I have an opportunity to buy a hardtop for my '65 XKE OTS. I’m in the US…it’s in England. I have very limited experience buying items overseas, not to mention fairly expensive ones (for me ! ) So my questions are:
buyer claims it’s off of a '64 EType. Would it fit a '65 ? Are they “universal fit” for a Series 1 ?
buyer Messaged me with pics. Condition appears as described ( old top but in good shape ) Appears to have all the chrome pieces, but no rear window. Buyer is researching to see if he has one. How difficult is it to get a rear window?
how would you know the difference between a real “Jag” top and a repro ? (he says it’s a real Jag top). Are there any markings he could photograph to prove authenticity ?
PayPal is a payment option. What precautions should I be aware of ? What are the guarantees of getting my $$ back if it’s not the real deal ?? He wants to send his PayPal details over to me, and to “pay via ‘Friends & Family’ to save on fees and holds, etc.” Does that sound fishy / make sense ?
Counting on you guys to help a novice buyer out !
Thanks in advance…as I may have to pull this trigger very quickly…
