This E-type has been stored for ten years and in all this time it has never been covered by a sheet: in theory this is not correct but on the other hand now the car has the classic patina of the barn find. The car has a beautiful color (Opalescent Silver Blue) and beautiful blue… Read More Blue sleeper: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 2+2
We have already seen so many Jaguar e-types, but every now and then – very rarely – a very special one emerges from the darkness. This is the case of this OTS (Open Two Seater), one of the very first produced by the Coventry factory, which has very special characteristics, although to the majority they… Read More Details matter: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
If you think that the barn finds are found only in the US, you are wrong, and this auction is proof of this. There is in fact a collection of 81 cars (none in good condition, some in desperate conditions) that will be auctioned (also online) tomorrow by a french auction house that we did not… Read More The sunday auction: 81 barn finds
Another E-Type Jaguar? Why not? In the end it is an icon of the automotive industry and, last but not least, it is beautiful. But if the E-Type roadster looks beautiful in picture you should see one live: now we know that it is very rare to spot one in the wild but it is… Read More Unknown issue: 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
We have seen cars to be restored in any conditions, but it is the first time we see one that recalls the appearance of Tutankhamun’s mummy when Howard Carter took it out of his sarcophagus. Maybe that’s because of the black paint dried (and cracked) under the sun of California, and perhaps also because the… Read More The mummy: 1969 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… Read More Welded louvers: 1961 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
There are many restored E-Type which fetch a lot of money at several auctions worldwide: those are generally restored cars but this isn’t. Indeed the seller says that this is an original car, an unmolested California black plate (unfortunately now that plate has been replaced) which have been stored in a garage for 30 years… Read More White survivor: 1964 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 F.H.C.
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… Read More Yellow find: 1964 jaguar E-Type 3.8 O.T.S.
We had to do it. This is not the typical car we publish here but, as long as this ad will for sure enter in the “eBay Best Of”, we too wanted to be there. This custom was born as a Jaguar E-Type 2+2 but then something happened: “Hi to all, my name is peter… Read More Best of: 1968 Jaguar E-Type 2+2 “Custom”
It was a long time ago since we didn’t see a barn find E-Type belonging to the first series: this means that some cars are still floating “out there”. This Coupé is painted in red and many could think that it’s the typical “resale red” used in the past on many sports cars, but the… Read More Enclosed cat: 1962 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Coupé
