Jaguar special 4.2 liter Roadster rebuilt 500 miles - an emotional experience. for sale
Here is my absolutely gorgeous vintage themed British Jag special. I will give a more detailed review below. but she is correctly registered as a 1967 Jaguar Sports and has a specially prepared Jag 4. 2 liter engine with a five-speed getrag gearbox and adjustable front suspension. She comes with a removeable anti-roll bar. for the safety conscious. She is low. sounds lovely and goes really well. I admit she is a toy. but a really useable and enjoyable one. You won't find a good Healey Silverstone in this condition for less than $200000 and this car looks as good and drives better! I have given the option to make me an offer - you can submit a bid and I will respond asap. or you can write to me via ebay mail. She is here to sell. so that I can fund a more sedate tourer. so that I can take my grandchildren on outings.
I have taken recent auction results as my guide for price - Lot 48 at Scottsdale 2012 was a very similar car. but with only a less powerful 3. 8 engine. I believe. It sold for $74800 without buyer's premium
Car is in UK on South Coast - can put you in touch with a good courier to deliver to port at a reasonable cost.
She has undergone a "nut and bolt" rebuild over ten years by a retired mechanic who specialises in older Jags and only done 500 miles since. As he said to me. I seem to enjoy working on them more than driving them! What luck to have people like that to buy cars from.
Now the details - this is a Mk1 Kougar sports car. The Mk1 remains the prettiest car of its genre in my opinion and I think this is the prettiest of the Mk1's. having has the wrap-around screen replaced by fly-screens. The original wraparound screen comes with the car. along with a tonneau cover that fits well but is faded. In all. there were about 200 of these specials built and most of them are getting tired now. You see them come up from time to time with a shiny respray and tired mechanicals. but I haven't ever seen one that has had such a comprehensive overhaul. Even allowing for there being a few inferior ones out there - you aren't likely to find yourself next to another at the shopping mall!
Please note - I had a problem entering the VIN number. because the real number doesn't have enough digits for the web-site to accept it. I have therefore just made it up! The car genuinely has a VIN number with less than 17 digits and letters!
The parts list goes like this. note it is an intelligent and thoughtful use of the Jaguar parts bins to take into account the light weight and performance orientation of this car. The XK engine used was a landmark development. it remains a smooth and powerful visual and aural delight. In a straight line. or on the bends. you will be exhilarated by this car and. when the time comes you will find it easy to buy new or refurbished parts to maintain it in fine fettle. It would be a small step to prepare it for motorsport.
Engine - 4. 2 series 2 XJ6 fitted with series 3 short skirt pistons. This is a big valve head. A 3. 8 Jag flywheel was used - because of the light weight of the car and to allow revs to build more quickly. Triple Mk10 Jag 2" SU carbs and manifolds with electrically operated choke. A power check hasn't been done for the car. but a standard triple-carb 4. 2 set-up is good for about 265BHP.
Gearbox and drivetrain - 5 speed getrag with fabricated adaptor plate. 3. 6 liter Jag clutch and S-type rear end assembly.
Suspension - front. S-type with adjustable wishbones. Rear. S-type with 3. 8 E-type coil springs.
Brakes - S-type discs all round with Coopercraft 4 pot calipers on the front and XJ6 calipers on the rear.
Chassis is purpose built and substantial -see library pic.
Approximate dimensional information:-
4039 mm / 159 in
1676 mm / 66 in
1016 mm / 40 in
2540 mm / 100 in
She weighs in at about 2040 lbs - without humans. according to the men in white coats.
