Ebay item 9/10/07
Current bid $11,211, 20 bids, 6 days left in auction. 69k miles.
Bought this car in 1985 from a fellow in Redmond, Washington who had had it for about five years but whose dream to restore it had faded. I thought I could pick up the torch, so I bought the car.
When I bought it, the car was fully assembled. My plan was to completely disassemble it (done), have the body fully restored (not done), restore the pieces and parts bit by bit myself (sporadically done), and reassemble it (not done). But time and money have kept me from fulfilling that goal and space keeps me from hanging on to the dream.
This auction is for a 1965 Jaguar E-Type roadster, which has been in Washington State since 1967 (I don’t have the history before that). The car has a 1965/62 body, a 1965 engine (the 3-carb SU setup) and drivetrain, and a 1965 (or so) bonnet. By way of explanation, after I started the disassembly process, I discovered that this car had once been two: the front end of a 1962 and the back end (and engine and drivetrain) of a 1965. The tub is welded somewhere between the firewall and the rear bulkhead. And when I first got this car, it had a 1962 bonnet on it. I sold that bonnet and finally purchased a Series I bonnet that was proper for a 1965 (the one that is shown here).
The original body plate from the 1965 shows the following data:
car #: 1E11217
eng #: 7E4668-9
body #: 4E2568
gear #: EJ3696
(By the way, I also have the 1962 plate)
In addition to the body and bonnet shown, this auction includes the original 1965 engine (with the 3-carb SU setup and bearing the serial number above), along with all of the parts I removed from the car, most of which I bagged and tagged for identification. Obviously, many replacement parts will be needed if they can’t be restored. To complete the conversion into a full 1965 E-Type will require at least the later braking system (I have some 1965 brake system components that are included here), along with a replacement radiator and fan(s). Of note is that the dash was retained from the 1965 (it is not the aluminum type).

Car returns to ebay 8/9/08
Opening bid $1,000, no bids yet, 9 days left in auction.
Some of you may remember this same car was up for auction back in September 2007. The winning bidder bought and paid for the car, held it in storage out here in Washington State but, because of work and family committments, could not get started on the project. I am now selling the car on behalf of its owner.

The car is complete and will need a complete restoration. the engine is free and should not take too much to get running. The car does come with most of the sheet metal needed to restore the body work and should not be too difficult to restore numerous extra parts will come with the car such as bumpers glass trim and other misc hardware and items.
