Ebay item 8/31/20
Opening bid US $9,999, no reserve, no bids 6 days left in auction, seller joholl2056, 63k miles.
I am so pleased to offer this 2 owner from new gem! With a little over 10,000 built between 1966 and 1968, this S-Type successor is definitely a rare beast. The last of the famed MK2 derivatives, it boasts XKE underpinnings with 60’s flair.
The interior is completely original, down to the carpets (discoloured but could be re dyed), headliner (perfect), wood dash (minor crackling in varnish), Factory radio (non functional) and sumptuous Connolly hide that shows a great patina of originality for someone who can enjoy an unrestored car.
Mechanically the Jag is very sound with 63,000 miles, perfect oil pressure, and no abnormal sounds from the engine. The ignition system has been recently serviced with new points but it will benefit from a general tune up.
The original transmission shifts as it should in all gears with slight play in the steering column lever which would benefit from adjustment.
Suspension rides smooth. Brakes are firm a bit noisy up front from little usage (will need to be checked). Exhaust line is believed to be original(!). It is not perforated but rusty.
All the electrical accessories are functional including horn, lights and flashers. Gauges are functional but electronic rev counter is optimistic. Speedometer needle bounces over 50 miles/hour but the Jag will cruise with assurance and stability.
Fuel gages needs to be repaired but the vehicle is equipped with 2 separate tanks from the factory using a toggle switch on the dashboard.
This rare vehicle comes with:
-COMPLETE factory tool kit (this by itself is worth a little fortune in classic flea markets)
-original Avon spare wheel and jack, and tool
-dealer maintenance booklets
-complete service shop manual that can also supply a wealth of information on MK2 and S-Type maintenance provided by an ex BMC dealership mechanic
This stunning vehicle is 52 years old and will come with no form of warranty and is described in the best of my knowledge as an honest, original driver.
