Should we talk about the E-Type Roadster in general? No, there is no need as we are talking more about an icon than a classic car in the strict sense. But even the icons have their exceptions: the most appreciated series is certainly the first, that is the one characterized by covered headlights, while the… Read More Headache: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 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… Read More Pasadena recluse: 1965 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
We can say that there is no better way to start the year 2021 with a survivor, even though in this case it is a car. Car, we have said, but certainly not a trivial one: it is in fact an automotive icon of the twentieth century whose image has also been too inflated and… Read More The survivor: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
If not everyone, most of you have already seen a Jaguar E-Type painted with the Union Jack scheme in the 1999 film “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” In 1999, the Jaguar E-Type, even those belonging to the first series, had prices far from the current ones: today thinking of painting an E-Type in… Read More Groovy roadster: 1965 Jaguar E-Type OTS
Undisturbed actually seems to be the right word: this first series E-Type seems to have been completely forgotten for decades, luckily somewhere indoors. In fact, this car probably comes from some place with a non-dry climate: this is what the traces of moss on the trunk floor tell us. Certainly though, if it had been… Read More Undisturbed: 1962 Jaguar E-Type Coupé
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.
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.
It is becoming increasingly rare (as with all classic cars) to find an E-Type first series that has survived the passing of time and the rearrangements of previous owners. This seems to be one of those survivors. The seller says that this car has belonged to a lady since 1992, is a self-matching numbers, still… Read More Same lady since ’92: 1963 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 FHC
