1964 Jaguar E-type Coupé
Given a nut-and-bolt restoration just 4600 miles previously, here was an E-type gorgeous enough to charm the birds out of the trees, even though the restoration had been carried out in the late 1990s. Re-commissioned after four years off the road, the quality of the work remained undiminished and for anyone wanting an English market model, this was the one to have. Great bodywork and paint and a deep red interior made this a lovely example, and compared with a same-age Aston Martin it offered far better value. Brightwells says the 3.8 flew through its MoT in April and that it fired up instantly on test.
