1962 Jaguar E-type FHC

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

With many clas­sic car own­ers opt­ing to con­serve rather than re­store, this re-com­mis­sioned E-type of­fers a pleas­ing take on how these cars can be used and en­joyed. The auctioneer says that this car was bought in a semi-dis­man­tled state in 2016. Ini­tially lined-up for a full restora­tion, plans changed once its con­di­tion and orig­i­nal­ity were taken into ac­count and it was given a thor­ough re-com­mis­sion­ing in­stead, lead­ing to its ‘present glo­ri­ous con­di­tion,’ Bon­hams says. En­gine, run­ning gear, un­der­side and chas­sis are re­ported to be in good con­di­tion, the Opales­cent Grey paint and chrome fair and the in­te­rior orig­i­nal, bar the car­pets and head­lin­ing. Em­i­nently us­able as it stands, or a good, solid start­ing point for more in­ten­sive restora­tion, this E-type de­serves a car­ing new owner.
