Ebay item 3/18/07
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jaguar-Jaguar-MKII-1960-Jaguar-MKII-3-8_W0QQitemZ2301061 ...
Current bid $2,000 reserve not met, no bids yet, 6 days left in auction.

Sellers description:
The VIN on this 1960 Jaguar MKII shows that it is a LHD with a 3.8 engine, air conditioning (rear), and power steering. It has chrome wire wheels. This car is completely rust free and would make an excellent candidate for restoration but is missing most of the interior and the rear window. I recently bought the car from a gentleman that was involved in the aborted restoration of this car. This car has been sitting since 1998 when it was in the middle of a restoration. The previous owner claims to have done a $7000 rebuild of the engine. The car does run well and appears to have an entirely new exhaust system and the brake flex lines leading to the wheels appear new. The previous owner states a new wiring harness was installed during the restoration. It appears all the chrome and stainless are with the car. Most of the pieces were either chromed or polished and wrapped in newspaper and left inside the car and are in great condition. There are some slight exterior surface rust stains on the front bumper and the wire wheels. The story is the previous owner was restoring the car and the interior was at a local upholstery shop. The upholsterer passed away and the family threw out the interior pieces. There is only a drivers seat. The dash pieces are with the car. The wood is not salvageable. The person I bought the car from had painted the car and for some reason the previous owner never completed the car so the painter ended up with it. It obviously needs a repaint but the parts not exposed to the sun show that it was a quality paint job. There is absolutely no rust and does not appear to have any heavy bondo in the car. The body is very straight, the paint is not thick and I think a person could sand the existing paint and respray it. I have the reserve is low enough that in my estimation someone could finish the restoration and come in $10,000 less than the completed value of the car. It's not uncommon for a well done MKII to bring $40K and NADA's high figure for this car is $51,965. I am selling the car because I have bought way too many cars that need help lately. Seems I can't pass up a good deal on a car that I like so now I'm passing a good deal onto you.

Current bid $1,025, no reserve, 16 bids, 2 days left in auction. Still in Scottsdale.

Sellers description:
I bought this car a 04.18.07 and do not have any funds remaining to complete this project.

Beautiful curves---absolutely no major dents or dings---Arizona rust-free. Interior has no front or rear seats at all. Steering wheel is incredible when finished out and rare for this model. I have what appears to be most of the interior wood and trim pieces---some of which may be able to be restored---some of which may not. When I purchased vehicle most of the chrome was in the trunk wrapped in newspaper. I believe most if not all of the chrome is present. Many pieces of the chrome are beautifully restored and ready to go right now---some are not. All 4 windows and frames are present and good to go---back window is not present. Has original Jaguar Custom Spoke wheels---tires are there but need replaced before she hits the road. Instrument panel is complete and keys are in it. AC/ Heater controls intact and are still good.

There are new brake lines, fuel lines and a new wiring harness already installed and ready to go.

She has a matching numbers all original block which starts right up and purrs like a kitten. Previous owner spared no $$$ on complete rebuild and with correct transmission will float comfortably down the road for many years.

There is obviously much work to be done here. However, with the block already being rebuilt and running smoothly---with both the fuel and brake lines already installed and ready to roll---and with the wiring harness in place and ready for regular use---well---whoever ends up with this nice find will have much less work than what actually appears.

I understand I will most likely get far less than what I purchased the vehicle for---but I do not care. I would just like to see her get the attention she needs and lifted back to incredible class once again.

Clear Arizona Title in hand.

Also---car came with original AC unit which is mounted in the rear and appears to be somehow completely intact and virtually unmolested. AC equipment includes the rare trunk mounted fan and evaporator unit---as well as both condensers. I wanted see if it still worked and if not---have it fixed if at all possible. Rather than put a cumbersome aftermarket kit on her. When AC came from showroom in 1960 it was an amazing feat and she blew cold air from the back to the front. This is how I wanted to restore her.

1960 JAGUAR MK 2 3.8 SEDAN - AUTOMATIC - AC 

Motorcar Classics is proud to present this stunning 1960 Jaguar Mark II sedan featured in Light Blue Metallic with Blue leather interior. Our Mk II is an exquisitely restored example, which displays the care and time spent without regard to cost bringing the car to its current condition. It is a never rusted, dry climate California-Arizona car.

Comprehensively rebuilt engine, transmission, suspension, brake and electrical systems. New dark blue interior including leather, carpets, and meticulously finished burl wood. Desirable up-dates include A/C, alternator and rack and pinion steering. Other unique features on this car are Lucas Fog Ranger fog lamps, cutaway spats, sparkling chrome wire wheels, Derrington steering wheel and reclining seats. Note the folding picnic tables built into the back of the front seats. 

The car was available in 2.4, 3.4, and 3.8 liter forms, with the 3.8 liter variant, essentially Jaguars largest engine in their smallest sedan, being a genuinely high performance car with excellent roadholding, braking, and straight line performance. Indeed, the cars proved to be quite successful in saloon car racing and were widely used both by criminals, as getaway cars, and by police, to keep up with them! For these reasons, Mark 2s, especially the 3.8L variants, are valuable and supremely collectible, with their iconic styling and performance. Ours is the finest we have seen and is ideal for the perfection minded enthusiast.

OFFERED AT $79,900
