This is a 1965 S Type. 3. 8 litre. nbsp; twin SU carburettors. 4 speed manual with over drive.   I purchased the car while living in New Zealand and imported the car in 2006.   The car was a daily driver and now is rarely driven hence the reason I am selling.   Also I am moving for work at the end of the year so it must go.

Please. NO SMS/Text.   Call me direct if you have a question or ask your questions using ebay. my phone number is 0419 386 052

During its time in my ownership the car has travelled over 30 000 miles (50 000 kilometers) and I have had no issues.   In addition to purchasing the vehicle I have spent over $12000 on the car. including:

Replaced the engine head and twin SUs were overhauled (kit fitted). Head was replaced due to corrosion as the previous owner had not been using inhibitor.

Replaced clutch plate. reconditioned pressure plate. machined flywheel and had ring gear recut.

New brake booster and rear calipers and master cylinder reconditioned.

Fitted alternator (kept the original generator and regulator).

As part of registration in Australia. I had new retractor seatbelts fitted to the front (kept the original Jaguar embossed front belts).   Also had to get seatbelts fitted to the rear and child seat restraint points.

Manual switch thermo fan (for the Brisbane traffic jams).

Reconditioned radiator and waterpump.

Spin on oil filter kit fitted.

New exhaust.

Replaced carrier hubs (part of the rear suspension if you do not know what a carrier hub is)

New door seals.

New windscreen (stone chip stopped the roadworthy).

Roadworthy issued in June 2013.

CD player and electric antennae fitted.

Parts are readily available at JAGDAIM in Melbourne or from Mike Roddy Motors. also in Melbourne. I have some spare parts (complete carby set and light weight flywheel) that will go with the car. along with the original generator. regulator. jaguar front seatbelts and cartridge oil filter.   Also have two workshop manuals. parts catalogue and original owners hand book.

My final point is that his car is 50 years old and has some patina.   If you want to buy a concours condition car. this may not be the car for you.
