Welded louvers: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.


This barn find E-Type is a bit different from many others being sold on the market in the same conditions: other than being one of the “flat floor” series cars, this is a very early car with the bonnet louvers welded (instead of being part of the bonnet itself).


We all know that some details make a lot of difference for collectors an indeed this car is auctioned with a quite high reserve price. Speaking about the car, this is one of those that need a deep restoration as the body is way far to be in good conditions.


Floors are rotten and all the body needs expert hands to be brought back to the past glory; on the other side the car is said to be a matching number specimen, it is quite complete and, last but not least, it has a beautiful factory color which should be a metallic light blue shade. Find it for sale here in San Jose, CA, with bidding at $45,000 and reserve not met.
