With the purchase of any car, a pre purchase inspection is recommended. As you are bidding to buy, not look, test drive or kick tyres, I strongly recommend bidders inspect this car.
I live at Helensvale and the car is available anytime from Friday for inspection. (The car is currently with a Jaguar mechanic for installation of a new electronic SU fuel pump to replace the old and troublesome mechanical fuel pump and a new radiator cooling fan.)

Reminder: I strongly recommend bidders view the vehicle data and photos at this web site: http://www.xkedata.com/cars/detail/?car=1E50182

No, this car does not have a V12 engine, which came out in the Series III when Jaguar Cars was owned by British Leyland. This car was built by the original Jaguar Cars Limited at Castle Bromwich at Solihull in the UK (the original factory which built the Spitfire fighter aircraft during World War II) and came off the production line on 21 June 1966.
The car has a 6 cylinder, double overhead cam shaft 4.2 litre XK engine (4,235 cm3 / 258.4 cu-in ) of 265 bhp (198 kW) @ 5400 rpm and 385.0 Nm (283 lb.ft) of torque @ 5400 rpm. It has three SU carbys. It has the original engine - matching numbers. The yellow/gold head signifies 9:1 compression ratio.
The electronic ignition is a Pertronix Igniter unit with matching high voltage coil. The original canister type oil filter has been replaced with an after market spin on filter. The Jaguar modification kit to retain the cam followers was fitted during the engine overhaul. No performance modifications have been made to the engine.
All parts are available at very realistic prices from S N J Barratt Group in the UK, who have always provided me with excellent service and seven day delivery to Australia. http://www.sngbarratt.com/Home.aspx?b=UK

This should be in the questions section...........
There is a place in Brisbane (Archerfield?) that cleans and services instruments including speedos at reasonable cost.
The electric clock in the Tacho does not work and is disconnected. I intentionally have not had the clock repaired and reconnected as it would flatten the battery with the my minimal usage of the car.
I have a spare tacho and clock and I believe that clock works.
There is a place in the USA which replaces the clock internals with a modern electronic clock at reasonable cost, which does not flatten the battery.
I recommend bidders inspect the car before bidding, although time is now running short. The car had a complete mechanical restoration in recent years and whilst the body, paint etc is fine and presentable for me, other's may be seeking a restored body. It is for this reason I am asking around half the price of a fully restored car. I was previously quoted between $12,000 and $15,000 for body restoration and repaint.
