1968 JAGUAR E-TYPE 2+2

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Top price of the sale was paid for this match­ingnum­bers E-type, which started life as a prim­rose yel­low US-ex­port car, re­sid­ing in Florida. The body was rust­free and with re­cent me­chan­i­cal and restora­tion work (new clutch, al­ter­na­tor, re­built brakes and sus­pen­sion, as well as re­paint) it looked the part, be­ing smart with­out be­ing overly shiny. There were some facets to please orig­i­nal­ity lovers too, the floors be­ing the ones it left the fac­tory with, as was most of the in­te­rior, bar the car­pet and front seats. The rear seat was in good orig­i­nal con­di­tion as was the the headliner. Sen­si­bly es­ti­mated at £35000-40,000, here was proof that the oftover­looked ‘fam­ily E-type is com­ing in from the cold.
