Aged Burgundy: 1962 Jaguar E-Type FHC

The make and model of this project need no introduction: even those who are not enthusiastic about classic cars probably know this unmistakable profile.

The spider version obviously has the peculiarity of the canvas roof, but our personal opinion is that the coupé profile is difficult to beat even by cars that are worth ten times more on the market. In fact, the only reason why the first series E-Types did not reach millionaire prices is due to the fact that many were produced compared to the standards of the time.

This specimen was born with burgundy bodywork with red interior: a definitely particular combination with a paint tone typical of the 3.8-liter version; the condition of the car doesn’t look bad: the body looks pretty solid (but never trust your eyes too much), the engine looks complete while the interior clearly lacks the center console. Venial sins. Find it for sale at $67,500 here in Astoria, NY.
