Ebay item 9/29/17
www.ebay.com/itm/1974-Jaguar-XKE-Series-3-V-12-E-type-Primrose-Yellow-OTS-A-C-AU ...
Opening bid US $55,000 no reserve, no bids 9 days left in auction buy it now price $75,000 seller seller fuzzy_paws, 31k miles.

Sellers description:
Series 3 V12 1974 XKE E type. V12 with Auto transmission. 31.8K Miles.

We are the 3rd owners (first owner was Cameron B. from new in 1974 to 1986, second owner was Robert M. from 18K miles in 1986 to 2001; we are he third owners from 23K miles in 2001 to now - the sales history has been passed from owner to owner, so the transfer dates, dealers, mileage and owners full names are known). (For privacy I am not putting their full names in this listing).

The car has always been in Michigan for all 3 owners (resold by same dealer twice).

Yes the original AM/FM radio still works. Power Steering. Power Brakes.

Yes the A/C works. It is still RF12 based and has not needed to be converted to R123 or R134.

Engine Number: 7$15983LA
Gearbox Number: KL8002
Car Number: UE1$24515
Body Number: 4$7207
Body Colour: Primrose Yellow
Build Date: 2/74 (sticker on left door sill)
Interior Colour: Cinnamon leather, Cinnamon Vinyl

A few photos needing description:
---------------------------------------------
> interior storage locker, don't get excited about seeing the fire extinguisher, at JAGM
judged scoring events, you lose 1 pt if the car doesn't carry such a safety item in the vehicle.
> to right and left of the interior locker are almost triangular carpet pieces, if those are removed,
one can see down into the frame of the vehicle. I am told the original cloth sound proofing absorbs water from under the vehicle, and rots out the frame at these locations.
The photos show this frame area is not rotted out and the material has been removed.
> photo showing 20MPH was done while driving (its not a 0 MPH offset error)
> in 3 photos, orange stuff is visible, that is excess glue slopped on by Jaguar when the car was made

Known defects:
> front wind screen at upper left corner shows what I think is de-lamination between the glass safety glass plates. This glass defect is not in the viewing area used by the driver.
The defect area is clear and about 2 inches by 1 inch. It is invisible in the photo.

To the purist, the following are items modified:
> seat belt loops from Chevy Cavelier (I didn't have the heart to put holes through new seat leather, these can be removed and are screwed to the wood bottoms in the head rests; these prevent seat belts from rubbing against the seat leather, plus they hold the seat belt out from the seat for large fellows like me
> automatic power antenna
> "seat belt start inhibit" switch has been de-activated (the original 1974 set up was the car would not start unless you wore you the seat belt properly clicked in)
> unused far right dash switch can activate the radiator fans manually (normal coolant thermo switch at the radiator works too)
> engine carb balance tubes are chromed (originals were toxic cadmium plated.. no joke)
> air filter boxes and trumpets are chromed (originals were gray)
> Opus ignition replaced by Pertronixs system
> the convertable top is 2 sided cloth (from a German company), JAGM scoring allows this non original roof as a substitution (no pinch point damage from roof frame)

Other items sold with the vehicle:
> service history in Excel spreadsheet format
> original window sticker (see photo)
> original owners manual
> 2 sets of engine compartment water drip shields / fins (not installed to help show engine in photos)
> all the receipts I have for servicing (plus those from first and second owners)
> service manuals and parts catalog
> vinyl rear boot mat
> additional rear boot trim pieces
> tannau cover
> 6 oil filters
> 16 air filters
> 3 fuel filters
> a new A/C dryer for when time comes to convert to R123 or R134
> other parts I've saved up

Current bid: $35,100 reserve not met 16 bids 4 days left in auction, seller allsportsmotornetwork, 32k miles. Car now in Miami, Florida, previously Saint Clair Shores, Michigan.

Seller's description:

We are offering one of the most original and unmolested 32k mile 1974 E-Types on the market today. Finished in its original Pale Primrose over Biscuit leather that is in remarkable condition, being all original from the dashboard, door panels, carpeting, leather seats and so much more. The original cosmolene from the factory is still in its proper places and untouched, which is a confirmation of its rust free condition and originality, from the original floor pans to the spare tire compartment in the trunk, as well as all areas of importance on such a motorcar.

The striking look of the rare "Turbo Disc" factory wheels set this XKE apart from the rest and the automatic transmission makes the car a joy to drive in the city, country or on the highway making it a female friendly and comfortable driver. This is a proper example as the original factory radio works perfectly, and the a/c blows ice cold on the hottest days that south Florida is known for, and is a pleasure to drive and even show, if desired.

There are many E-Types on the market but you will rarely find a V-12 XKE in such original cosmetic condition that is all sorted out with over $10k at our cost in mechanical reconditioning making this one ready to enjoy immediately upon delivery. If you have never experienced a 1974 V-12 E-Type Jaguar with its top down and the magnificent sound coming from the 4 tailpipes right behind you then you owe it to yourself to do so and call us to discuss this amazing sportscar.

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?
