1963 Jaguar E-type fhc

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

This is the first time this car has been on the mar­ket since its last owner bought it in 1984 (along with an As­ton Martin DB4) for just £6000. There’s a pleas­ingly hon­est, if rather scruffy, air about it but it is MoT’d and run­ning, and a hearty re­buke to all those man­i­cured and too-shiny lawn show queens. Pun­ters were un­de­terred by the grey primer on the body­work, the craz­ing in the green paint and the well-used, scruffy in­te­rior. Here was a gen­uinely lovely E-type that sailed well past its £30,000-40,000 es­ti­mate, thanks to strong phone bid­ders com­pet­ing with those in the hall.
