Ebay item 4/17/06
Current bid $5,000 reserve not met, 1 bid, 6 days left in auction. Buy it now price $34.9k.
1969 series 2, 4.2 liter 6 cylinder roadster with the full synchro 4-speed manual gearbox. Car was restored several years ago and is still in very good (although not show) condition. Odometer reads only 50,300 miles. The color is best described as an acqua .... light blue with a touch of green. Originally the car was silver. The color looks fantastic on this car, I get many compliments on how good this color looks. The paint quality is good and the body is rust free. The interior is black leather and in good condition. The soft top is black canvas and also in good condition with a clear back plastic. Very nice chrome wire wheels.
Engine runs smooth with excellent oil pressure. The engine number matches the number stamped on the data plate. The engine was just serviced (coolant, oil, carbs rebuilt, ignition, etc), the engine compartment is clean. The engine compression was recently checked and all cylinders were between 140 to 150 psi, which is excellent. I have driven many e-type and for some reason this car seems to have a lot more torque than most I have driven, I would say it feels stronger than most series 1 Jags I've owned.
This car is ideal for the person looking for a nice weekend toy. The series 2 e-type tend to be the best choice for the first time XKE owner. They have better engine cooling and creature comforts than the series 1, yet lack the complexities of the V12 series 3 cars.
Includes jack in the bag, knock off hammer, boot cover for when the soft top is down, and owners manual

I acquired the car in May 2006. The paint is a non-original colour - a pale blue with a hint of green; some people have called it "seafoam". The car will probably be a continuous "restoration in progress" for the foreseable future.
