Current bid $2,550.00 (Reserve not met), 2 bids, 4 days left in auction.

Sellers description:
1963 Jaguar XKE, Series 1, Coupe

Turbo 350, rebuilt Corvette engine, racing motor w/4 bolt main, Halley 650 double pumper, racing manifolds. Car currently in storage. Needs brakelines and radiator hookup. Primered paint.

The body is primered and in very good condition...no bondo. I don't know much about cars, but this was my dream car..had a 64 XKE once and was forced to sell. The inside of this 63 is apart, but the seats and interior are covered and just needs to be put together. The front windshield is cracked, but found one for $200 in California so I know that won't be a problem.(Didn't buy it) The car was running before storage, however, mechanic quit the business and haven't been able to continue with project. Things I know about the car are: Trans turbo 350, Engine 350 Corvette 1970 rebuilt. Halley 650 double pumper, racing manifolds, new water pump, new tie rodends, steering box rebuilt, electronic ignition, new tires. In 2003, pulleys and brackets were installed, intake plug was fabricated and installed, loom wire harness, carburator was cleaned and lubed.

I have had the car for approximately three years and initially had some work done on it (my dream car to be). It was not running. Currently it has been in storage for about 2 years and not running. The brake line needs to be hooked up and the radiator also. The interior has been redone, however, the seats are out and also in storage.

I bought this beautiful Jag XKE Coupe Series 1 in 2002 for $12,000.00 and it already had the Chevy racing engine. It has been worked on by a local mechanic in Hawaii and he had the engine running and it sounded great in 2003. The car has not been worked on since. This is a project car! I bought the car after it had been shipped from California to Hawaii and I have all of the receipts from the previous owner and my own. I was told it needs an electrical fan, a brake line hookup and, of course, body work. The car is now primered. The front windshield will need replacing. The engine is a trans-turbo 350 rebuilt Corvette with Holley 650 double pumper, a new water pump, new shocks, new tie rod ends, steering box rebuilt, electronic ignition, new tires, new shaft and wiring harness. The seats have been removed for storage. There is very little rust. There is also a racing harness type seat belt.

1963 Jaguar E-Type Fixed-Head Coupe Chassis Number: 888169 The 1963 Le Mans semi lightweight E-Type reproduced based on Le Man racer Driven by Maurice Charles &John Coundley in 1962.
There were only eight E-Types that raced at Le Mans in the 1960's and only three that raced in the 1962 endurance event. This tribute was driven by Maurice Charles and John Coundley (car #8). The car was fitted with every possible racing option for Le Mans. This car was purchased in 2013 and restored by Jaguar expert, Simon Dunford and it will be finished as Le Man racer again in 2014. The car is due to many race entries in Europe.

Car to be at auction 9/15
www.bonhams.com/auctions/22725/lot/363/

Auction description:
Lot 363
1963 Jaguar E-Type 3.8-Litre 'Semi-Lightweight' Competition Coupé
Chassis no. 888169
£180,000 - 220,000
US$ 280,000 - 340,000
Auction 22725:
Goodwood Revival
12 Sep 2015 13:30 BST
Chichester, Goodwood

This FIA-certified semi-lightweight E-Type 'Le Mans' racer was raced by a Swiss collector for the 2014 and 2015 and comes with copy results sheets for the 'Le Mans Legend' (organised by Motor Racing Legend) and the 'Le Mans Classic' and 'Sixties Endurance Race' (organised by Peter Auto). In the 2014 'Le Mans Classic' (Race 4) this car qualified as first E-type, having lapped the historic Le Mans circuit in a highly respectable 5 minutes 4.972 seconds, beating other E-Types in a mixed field of Jaguars by two seconds. In the 2015 'Le Mans Legend', this car was the first E-type home, recording a maximum speed of 242.6km/h (150mph) ahead of the highly competitive E-type driven by Steve Soper. Finally, in the 'Sixites Endurance' race at the 2015 Monza Historic, this car finished 1st overall, putting an end to the domination of the AC Cobras.

Left-hand drive chassis number '888169' was totally restored in 2014 as a 'continuation' of the semi-lightweight E-type driven by Maurice Charles and John Coundley in the 1962 Le Mans 24 Hours race (car number '8'). It is a specially prepared competition semi-lightweight model featuring a 3.8-litre race engine built in 2013 by specialists Sigma Engineering (Peter Lander). Breathing through triple Weber 48 DCOE carburettors, this unit incorporates a high-compression cylinder head, thick '3.8' steel block, steel crankshaft, steel race con-rods, forged pistons, lightened flywheel, triple-plate competition clutch, hydraulic release bearing, and anodised billet aluminium cylinders. Power is transmitted via a Denis Welch Motorsport four-speed straight-cut gearbox. Fabricated by expert coachbuilder Simon Dunford, the new body is to 'Semi-Lightweight' specification, incorporating an aluminium bonnet, roof, boot lid and doors. Accompanying documentation includes correspondence with the service providers and others involved in the car's race preparation.

After a year spent fully restoring all the original parts, the E-type was sent for race preparation to M & C Wilkinson, who undertook further work under Mike Wilkinson's supervision, all to period specification, and obtained FIA papers. In 2014, the vendor began racing the E-Type, investing an additional £100,000 in 'getting the car just right', which included finishing the exterior in classic Opalescent Blue.

Additional specification highlights include:
Brand new FIA fuel cell
Lightweight specification alloy wheels
Cool-ducted FIA front brakes
Rebuilt front brake callipers and new stainless steel rear callipers
Interior roll bar as per Lightweight, set-up for HANS device
On-board fire extinguishing system
Perspex windows
Upgraded differential c/w cooling radiator

The car comes with a huge history file containing all documentation regarding special-order specifications and also a list of the additional lightweight items purchased for the Le Mans entry. Fully sorted, safe and extremely reliable, this highly successful E-Type is a proven 'turnkey' competition car ready for race, rally or street use.
