Offered for sale. here on Ebay. from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS for your consideration is an exceptional 1967 Jaguar E-type Series One 4. 2 Liter Roadster needing completion. This car was purchased last year from it's longterm owner of Tucson. Arizona. This car was enjoyed for a period of years then disassembled for a total. ground-up. Concours restoration. The owner was not able to finish it because of health issues. The car appears to have left the factory painted Willow Green with Biscuit or Beige trim. I acquired this car approximately 12 months ago and had the entire body perfectly restored and repainted in period correct and appropriate Opalescent Silver Grey (basecoat/clearcoat) by a professional Jaguar body specialist. It was expensive. but the results are spectacular. The bonnet was completely disassembled. stripped to bare metal. cleaned. then carefully reassembled with new epoxy sealer to correctly glue the inner panels. It was then re-fitted and gapped to the car with the subframe assemblies attached. Complete bodywork was performed on the monocque. panels. and bonnet. The entire car was repeatedly blocked in primer. then painted with perfect results. It was a 3-4 month process from start to finish. The only replacement metal work on the car's monocoque were the front floor dipped sections and a new belly pan for the bonnet. The body is completely accident-free and rustfree. Even the nose of the bonnet is perfect. The car's front subframe set was also painted. The body is now ready for it's final assembly. The engine and rear axle assembly were sent out by the previous owner to a Jaguar specialist and were carefully disassembled and rebuilt. The IRS unit components were powder-coated and it is understood that the engine was completely rebuilt at great expense. The engine block. 4. 2 liter engine 7E9870-9. is presumed to be it's original and matching to the car. but the cylinder head was purchased at the time as a brand new Jaguar unit. so it is therefore a later replacement unit with no number stamped on it. It is currently fitted with later Series Two valve covers. The gearbox was in fine order. so received only minimal attention. Some of the detail work on the subassemblies needs correcting to be accurate to Concours standards. The previous owner purchased a brand new set of (4) chrome wire wheels fitted with larger 205x15 period Pirelli Tires. The rear bumpstop brackets have been removed from the body to anticipate the fitting of the larger tires. Lots of other mechanical components were powder coated and restored but could use a refreshing and re-detailing. There is a large portion of original hardware that has been replated. The radiator has been rodded out and correctly repainted in black. There is a crate containing the carb set which the lids were polished. and they were in the process of being rebuilt. Overall. the car appears very complete with hardly any items missing. The car stayed in the same garage all of its life while in the previous owner's care. which is highly important when purchasing a disassembled car. The owner had most all of the chrome items replated except the bumpers. which were later test -fitted up to the car prior to final paint. The door glass and windshield are in OK condition but should be replaced for this level of a restoration. A portion of all the old trim was saved. Please examine all of the photos and call with any questions you may have. This car presents a scarce opportunity to purchase a highly desirable and appreciating classic Jaguar in a spectacular exterior color. with the new owner being able to decide his interior trim color. A painstaking. time-consuming. and expensive portion of this restoration has already been professionally completed. which realistically could equal 6 month's of restoration time. The new owner can bypass this grueling part of the process and enjoy his finished car much sooner. possibly in as little as 4-6 months from now. This car and it's parts can be inspected in Upland. CA by appointment and is highly recommended. It is sold with a clear AZ title. It is located just an hour away from the Los Angeles port of Long Beach. $119. 50.
