The body was repainted in Carmen Red urethane paint during the restoration and was equipped with a new black retractable cloth top with a plastic rear window.

According to the seller, the floor, transmission tunnel, and rear bulkhead were coated with sound and heat insulation.

The interior is outfitted in GW Bartlett Co (now known as OSJI ) dealer-specification black leather and the doors are furnished with new winding and locking mechanisms. 

Rebuilt Nisonger Instruments of New York gauges are on the dash and the 5-digit analog odometer shows 12,836 unverified miles.

Power comes from a correct replacement 3.8-liter I6 engine linked to a new clutch for the correct replacement 4-speed manual gearbox. The seller notes the hydraulic clutch master and slave cylinders and both master hydraulic brake cylinders were replaced.

This Jaguar’s auction ends November 22 at 12:00 p.m. MST.
