Description for Jaguar E-Type 1968

I have a 1968 S 1. 5 Jaguar E Type fro sale. It is a mostly complete project that requires a complete retoration. I bought this car last summer for a restoration project. I bought it from the 3rd owner and he owned it for the past 30 yrs. I would love to continue but I must let it go due to health issues with my wife. The car has been almost entirely sandblasted and some of the rusted out panels were cut out. The floors and parts of the sills were completely rusted. Both floors have been removed but the passenger side floor is installed but only tack welded in place along with one of the passenger side sills. I have all new metal from Martin Robey for this car. (NEW floors. new inner and outer sills. new rear quarter panels and a bonner hinge repair panel) There is a small amount of rust in the quarters that can be patched and some rust in the trunk floor. I was told by a Jag specialist that the quarters should be repaired instead of replaced. the trunk floor will probably require replaced. (I do not have this part). The front and rear bulk heads are rust free and the tunnel in in good shape. The bonnett is in VERY GOOD condition with only a small dent in the lower valance and some minor corrosion here and there. As you can see in the pics the car is completely dis assembled. The car has a numbers matching engine and transmission. The rear IRS is complete and intact. It is in very good condition. The engine spins over freely by hand and is complete with the twin carbs. I have all of the gauges. dash panels and the upper dash pad. The convertible top is in very good condition but should be replaced. The top frame is VERY NICE condition. Seats are OK but need to be re upholstered. The bumpers are very clean as well but need to be re chromed. Car comes with the original windshield and chrome trim too that is in good condition. I do not have every little piece for this car but most if it is all there. (things like the little brackets and all misc hardware). The lube / chassis plate pictured is original and in decent condition. All of the original front sub frame parts are in very nice condition and the chassis number is still on the frame. Most of the car is currently located near Reading. PA. (Monocoque. engine. trans. IRS assembly. repair panels. nbsp;original wheels. subframes etc) I have some parts at my home in Centrville. MD. (front torsion bars. front brake assemblies. front hubs. seats. console. dash pieces. guages. windshield. heater box. convertible top etc)I am sorry for the limited pictures but the car is 3 hrs from my house. I can assure you that this description is as accurate as possible. I reserve the right to cancel this auction at anytime. The car must be picked up from Reading. PA area AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Please call me or text me if you have any questions @ 443-226- FIVE NINE FOUR ZERO. Once again I hate to sell this car but I cannot give the attention it needs right now.
