Pasadena recluse: 1965 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.

An icon needs no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type, particularly if a first series, is no exception.

Many have been produced and many have survived, especially if we compare them to other sports cars of the same era, yet the quantity of examples still existing has not inflated their charm: the value of this model has slowly but steadily grown over the years, making it a “blue chip”.

Clearly, not being a rare car (in relative terms, of course) the value is highly dependent on factors such as originality or quality of the restoration: an E-Type can be worth $ 125,000 or $ 250,000 depending on how it has been restored. This example is said to have been parked for the past 30 years in a garage, has been repainted in the past and the interior has been redone – all in the original color match. In fact, it looks like a car that with some little work can immediately return to hit the road, the only downside is that the engine block is not matching numbers. Find it for sale at $79,500 here in Pasadena, CA.
