This is my private car. I am not a dealer. This car has never been taken apart and put back together. It is an extremely solid , a beautiful driving E-type with plenty of power and torque. It is an extremely comfortable car and  highway worthy . It handles beautifully and its 4 wheel disc brakes make it stop quickly and safely. The body gaps ,door fit, hatch fit and bonnet are like they left the factory. The floors are solid and all four jacking points are solid. The engine starts first time everytime and has that wonderful sounding exhaust .It has great oil pressure, around 55-60 at start up and 45 running. The engine is sweet and strong with no smoking. The transmission shifts smoothly and flawlessly. It does drip a few drops of fluid after a run but nothing serious.  The interior is all original and has great patina plus all original seat belts.The floor rugs are in great condition.  The headliner is beautiful with no sagging . The spare tire wheel well is totally solid and has the original padding glued to the floor from the factory. The spare tire is the original tire that came with the car but I would recommend using it strictly on the show circuit. The original jacking tools and vinyl pouch are in the spare tire well with the spare tire. The car has new wire wheels and tires with less than 1 thousand miles on them. Chrome is all original and in very good condition showing normal wear. All lights and lenses are in great condition with no cracks or broken pieces. Weather stripping is all original and does show its age in spots. All the glass is in great condition with no cracks or broken areas. All the gauges work except for the clock. The A/C unit turns on but doesn't blow cold and one plastic air regulator is missing a few louvers. The heater,windshield wipers ,lights etc. all work as they should. The body is very straight and the underside is very solid. This car has always been garaged and maintained . The previous owner was a collector who garaged the car in his multi car garage for the 10 years that he  owned it. I don't have any history beyond that. I've owned many e-types over the years , but this one is definately one of the most comfortable ,driveable and  roomy e-type I've  ever owned. Just get in it and go !!!
The car has always been  signal red with black leather interior. It has one repaint  by the previous owner when he first bought the car. The paint has a very high luster and looks great from 5 to ten feet away. On close inspection it has its imperfections but with a very shiny luster plus the previous owner used a  tiny artist brush extensively to apply touch up paint  to cover up small rock chips etc. There are a few small scraps on the fender arches to note. One in front of the drivers front fender and one behind the drivers front fender. One behind the passenger rear tire and one on the passenger front fender. Nothing major but they don't show up that well in the pictures. The voltage regulator , alternator  ,battery ,spark plugs all replaced  2/12 .  Car is ready to be driven and enjoyed. Please look at all the pictures on the ebay auction but also the many other pictures I posted on my separate shutterfly web site. Please e-mail me at domejag@aol.com to get the exact link for over 100 additional pictures. There are many detailed  underside, interior, exterior photo's of this beautiful car for your review.  The car comes with a very nice car cover ,a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and the original owners manual ,documenting this cars originality and pedigree.

Latest Jaguar XJ snaps show old versus new

Wed, 19 Mar 2014 09:30:00 EST

It is a rare day when automakers line up their current models and test cars right next to each other and allow us to compare them directly. However, Jaguar ending up doing just that during cold weather testing of the face lifted XJ, providing the perfect chance to see just what the company is changing.
We spotted the refreshed XJ testing last year, and it hasn't evolved much since then. The updated model sports clear turn signals and a slightly revised front air dam. The modifications are similarly minor at the rear. The bumper appears to dip down slightly further on the new sedan. Thankfully, those gorgeous taillights are still draped over the back of the car. The exhaust outlets have switched to oval shapes rather than the current parallelograms. This alteration could just be chalked up to it being a test car, but the previous tester we saw had a similar design. It's possible that the camouflage could be hiding other revisions, but don't expect anything radical from the facelift.
Our previous report indicated that Jaguar is also planning some interior upgrades with new infotainment and ambient lighting. The company seems to feel that there isn't a point in messing with the XJ's design just yet, since all of the changes we see here are very subtle. No problems, here - to our eyes, the big Jag is still one of the prettier sedans on the road today.

Jaguar readying a pop-top F-Type Coupe? [w/poll]

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 19:15:00 EST

Typically convertibles are spun off of coupes, but sometimes it goes the other way. Like the Porsche Cayman that was based on the Boxster, the Lotus Exige spun off of the Elise, and the Jaguar F-Type, which arrived as a roadster before the coupe debuted. But if the latest reports are to be believed, Jaguar could be planning something in between.
According to Auto Express (which has, mind you, been known to stretch the rumors out some), Jaguar is toying with the idea of offering a partial convertible version of the F-Type - something Porsche would call a Targa (and which we would too if Stuttgart weren't so litigiously protective of the name). The additional roof configuration would give the F-Type three body-styles, giving its customers more choices.
It wouldn't be the only sports car to offer three roof options: There's the Porsche 911, of course. Ferrari once offered GTB, GTS and Spider versions of the 348 and 355. The Chevy Corvette has been offered in all three forms, as was the Pontiac Solstice many moons ago. But that kind of variety in roof configurations has become scarce. Jaguar's decision reportedly depends on whether it can make the business case or not. Do you think there'd be enough demand for a lift-roof F-Type?

Jaguar F-Type greets US, shows off range of personalization

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 14:19:00 EST

While the debut of the XFR-S is likely fresh on everyone's minds and browser windows, the other big story of late at Jaguar is the F-Type coupe and convertible. Originally unveiled in Paris, the LA show was the first opportunity that the sub-XK performance machine will be seen Stateside. However, it was not just the same news that we first heard in Paris, as Jaguar used LA to showcase its newly available "Black" design pack.
This styling package includes gloss black finishes for the grill surround, side vents, a flat-bottomed sport steering wheel, gloss black interior touches, and instrument panel rings. This package is available with Ultimate Black, Polaris White, Italian Racing Red, Rhodium Silver, Grey and Firesand (seen above) body colors.
The Black pack can be had on either the 3.0-liter supercharged V6 model, or the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 version. Specific additional "Black" tweaks are available based on which derivative you select. Specifically, a gloss-black rear valence is a V6-only modification.
