Yellow find: 1964 jaguar E-Type 3.8 O.T.S.


This first series E-Type with its original Primerose Yellow paint is said to be a California barn find stored since 1979, with one owner only and 53k original miles on the back.


Other than being original it has also the original tool set which is very rare on these cars. The paint is in quite good conditions for its age but unfortunately we can’t see the interiors and the floor either but, seeing the overall conditions from the outside, this actually seems a very dry car.


The engine bay it’s way far to be a concours level one but we suppose that the actual owner has deliberately leaved it as found to show how original was the car when he found it. The 3.8 is not the most sought model because of its concrete gearbox and other things which were improved on the 4.2 litre cars, however the best specimens of this breed often fetch more than $150k and more and more often even $200k. Find it for sale at $115,000 here in New York, NY.
