Offered for sale is my 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 convertible in Signal Red with black leather interior. wire wheels. and automatic transmission. Odometer: 72. 21. VIN: UC1S73626BW. The title is clean. My father purchased this sexy beast in 2000 at the annual Auburn Car Auction in Indiana. He drove it home to Michigan. put it in storage. then became distracted by other beautiful cars and never started or drove it again. When he passed away in 2010. I inherited the car. I had it shipped out to my home in California in 2012 and had to awaken it from its dozen-year slumber. After fluid changes and brake bleeds. replacing split fuel lines and sorting the ignition. I was rewarded with the most fun I’ve ever had on four wheels. Driving the twisties with the top down and listening to the glorious V12 roar puts a smile on my face every time. I am at least the fourth owner. but I believe the car spent most of its life on the East Coast and in the Mid-West. The black leather interior. which is still in very good condition. was redone in 1992; I’m not sure when the car was painted Signal Red—I think it might have been delivered in Regency Red. From the images you can see that while she’s not perfect. she’s a real looker. with the very desirable Euro-style bumpers. While the V12 takes a bit to warm up. once it’s going you feel like it will never stop serving up power. All the conveniences work—lights. turn signals. wipers. air-conditioner. horn—except the heater (don’t worry. the engine will keep you warm). Are there any leaks. you ask? This is a 43-year-old Jaguar XKE. so of course it marks its territory with small coolant and oil leaks. but it’s not nearly enough that I have to routinely refill as a result. The convertible top is in good shape. with no tears and a rear window you can see through. The boot contains the original jack. knockoff hammer. and knockoff tool—all in a pouch—along with a wire wheel spare tire. Sale includes the official Repair Operation Manual. the original owner’s manual. and a set of new engine and dashboard decals from XKs unlimited. For more images than are included here. plus a short video featuring the heavenly exhaust note. contact me and I'll send you a link (eBay does not allow me to include a link).
