Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 27th – 31st, 2016 at Russo and Steele’s 16th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction. Please contact us for more information.
Offered for sale is a highly original, numbers matching 1967 Jaguar E-Type OTS. This car has recently undergone some maintenance after leaving a short 1 year stint in storage. The fuel was drained, fuel tank removed, cleaned, and checked for leaks. The original clear fuel lines had become hard and brittle, thanks to today\’s ethanol fuels. The fuel lines have been replaced with modern rubber hoses which are more resistant to the harsh side effects of ethanol fuel.
The fuel pump remains in great working order and appears to have suffered very little from the aged fuel that had been sitting in it, Up at the carburetors, the fuel bowls were drained and cleaned, along with cleaning of the dash pot, jet needle, and the other few moving parts within the SU Carburetors.
The water pump has also been replaced with an OEM replacement, along with a new water pump gasket, since the original gasket had developed a slow leak. A new accessory belt is also installed as the original appearing belt was stretched and coming apart. The radiator remains as the car had no cooling issues before entering storage, and there were no visual signs of damaged or abuse.
Certain parts within the engine bay were incorrectly painted with a very bright and vibrant silver paint. These parts have been removed, cleaned up, and restored to their original color.
With attention to detail throughout, this is an excellent example of the highly collectible Series 1 XKE open top two seat Jaguar. Fuel and Cooling system brought up to a more ethanol resistant and dependable level
