You have a barn and a Jaguar E-Type which you do not often drive, what are you doing? Exactly, you place your Jag in the barn and then forget about it for 40 years. A Frenchman was so smart and is now likely to catch a nice amount.
He showed his deep blue Jaguar E-Type Series 1 1961, after 13 years of fun, alone in a dark and dry sanding. He then continued until an auction came to visit a few weeks ago.
Chris Routledge of Coys auction was the E-Type it in excellent condition, hidden under a thick layer of dust. The dry climate has ensured that the car has not suffered. Both the interior, exterior and engine are in wonderful condition. According to an engineer who worked for the owner, the 3.8 with 265 hp five years ago last started.
Saturday, October 26 the hermit and forerunner F-Type will be auctioned in England. Coys expects to absorb 30,000 to 40,000 pounds for the E-type. That seems very little, they sometimes go to leave. At the same auction is indeed a significant Jaguar XK120 Roadster. Which was also found in a barn. The XK120 from Essex has an estimated 3.4 with 160 hp and the year 1951. Of those cars that he's giving 15,000 to 25,000 pounds.
