Ebay item 8/20/11
www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll
Classified ad price: £39,900.00

Sellers description:
1973 Jaguar E Type V12 Convertible.

Chassis Number 1s1798
Registration number VFX888L

A low mileage car that has covered just 53000 miles from new. This mileage is warranted & backed up by a copy of every MOT since the car was three years old!! Last year it had a major service costing over £4500 covering a huge variety of usual maintenance items.

The car is finished in its original colour of Azure blue with a tan leather interior in good used condition. It sports chrome wire wheels to the four corners, again in excellent shape, shod with 4 very good tyres.

The car has not been run for a year or so. It starts & runs just fine, but has a slight exhaust blow at the manifold. As a result the price has been reduced to reflect this.

The car comes with a variety of bills & pleasingly its original Jaguar service manual. It drives beautifully with effortless power & a supple suspension.

Very original, very useable & warranted low mileage.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
