Ebay item 11/20/19
Car has a buy it now price of $14,780 for 29 days, seller oldmotorguy, 70k miles.
1959 Jaguar Mark 9 (MK IX) Saloon, 3.8 Liter 6 cylinder engine, automatic transmission, fairly original condition as far as I can determine, although I am not an authority on Jaguars. This luxury car was originally titled in England, and found its way into the inventory of the Frank Dale and Stepsons dealership in London. This dealership primarily sells Rolls Royce and Bentley luxury automobiles, and this luxury Jaguar saloon at the time fit right into those ranks. Frank Dale and Stepsons was doing business at the time this car was sold in London at their Farm Lane facility and was operating at this location between 1972 and 1986 (plate in photo). No records show where the car was located after that point, but contact with Frank Dale & Stepsons (still in business) may yield some additional information. At some point between 1986 and 1999, this right-hand drive car was imported into the United States presumably from the United Kingdom, and the next records I have indicate that new Firestone whitewall tires were purchased for the car from Coker Tire Co. in February of 1999 when the car was running in the Los Angeles, CA area, where it remained until October 2019. The car is now located in DeKalb, Illinois.
Additional work as detailed on the included receipts was done on the car in May and June, 2010 at odometer reading 69,692 (appears to be original mileage) to include:
replacement fuel pump
ignition tune up
Since this work was done, the car was driven an additional 732 miles , and then parked. The odometer currently reads 70,424 miles. The car has not run since approximately late 2010 or perhaps into 2011 or 2012 would be my best guess (8 years +/-), and the California plates have a 2012 registration sticker on them. All of the original factory components remain on the car, to include all the interior wood, exterior chrome and stainless steel trim. Era correct ACE raised aluminum letters/numbers licence plates are also on the car currently, although the California legal plates are also included (shipped loose). There is no battery installed in the car currently, and the engine will not turn over. The car is in need of work, to include getting it running and interior work such as the head liner and carpet which is torn in places in addition to other concerns on this antique luxury vehicle.
