The Second owner (Mr. Gose) purchased the car on September 11 1972 from a Lady in Knoxville Tennessee. He bought the car to drive on fair-weather days, and only drove the car sparingly. He had the car repainted in 1982 (the paint is showing its age). It was always Garage Kept. The car was last Licensed in 2007 but was parked a few years before that when he bumped the nose of the car pulling it in the garage.

I purchased the car from Mr. Gose and his wife in June of 2017. The car hadn’t been started in over 10 years. I brought the car home, drained the gas, installed a new Delco battery, and replaced the original fuel pump with a new correct SU Fuel pump and new fuel filter. With new gas, and some Marvel Mystery Oil, the car started right up. I have driven it around my drive way, but I have not had it on the road. The car does start and run good. I have not cleaned the car up, it is exactly the way I found it in his garage (other than it runs now).

Since the car wasn’t used in winter or rain, and always garage kept the car is one of the most solid jaguars I have ever seen! I have not found any rust. The floors, Rocker Panels, Trunk Floor, Bonnet, and Doors all appear to be RUST FREE. You can still see the seams in the rear trunk pan and all the spot welds! Other than the light damage in the bonnet the car shows no signs of ever being wrecked. This is a great Car!

The car is selling with NO RESERVE so please look at the pictures and please feel free to email or call 865-621-4012 with any questions.
