Ebay item 1/8/08
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jaguar-Mark-1-Mk-1-1959-JAGUAR-Mark1-Mk-1-3-4L-runs-fine ...
Current bid $1,041, no reserve, 2 bids. 5 days left in auction. 75k miles.

Sellers description:
The mileage may or may not be true but, according to the PO, it is the actual milage! The car obviousely needs to be restored if you want a show vehicle but wouldn't take too much to turn it into a ' daily driver'.

The REALLY good news is that it is complete, there's nothing missing. The carpets that are not in the car are in a box, I kept them to use as patterns for new ones. The motor runs pretty nice but the carbs need new gaskets. We cleaned them and put them back in but the front one leaks a little and they will also need adjustment. We had the tank out as well, cleaned and 'creamed' and reintalled it. The (5) tires are brand new and so is the battery, motor oil, trans fluid and gear oil, spark plugs, distributor cap & rotor, etc. I also have new air filter and plug wires that go with the car. The left rear wheel is the (painted) spare, the other 3 are chrome, in good condition and will clean up perfectly. I do not have the 4th chrome rim but could find you one if you want it (@ extra cost!). We also pulled the transmission and disassembled it for inspection. It showed minimal wear on clutches and bands and all seals are nice and soft. Unfortunatelly, you need a special tool to adjust the bands on those Borg & Warner, DG250 transmissions, which I do not have. So you want to have them adjusted. It's easy with the tool and shouldn't take more than 1 hour. I ordered new brake hoses (old ones started to crack) and they will be installed before this auction ends!

The body is straight, some minor dings but no sign of any major damage, now or in the past. A little rust here and there but really not bad at all! Car was last registered in Colorado but spent most of her live in Texas which might explain that the floors, usually a main problem spot, are very solid with a lite surface rust but no rot or holes! Yes, she'll need a little body work and a new paint job but the car is a VERY good base for a restoration (see pics!) Instrumentation is complete and the seat frames are perfect with very usable upholstery. Even the wood is in very nice shape! I took a lot of high-resolution pictures so please enlarge them and inspect the car closely! The restoration on these cars is quite simple and the rarety and value of the finished car makes it surely worth the effort!

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
