Words Can’t Describe This 1964 Jaguar E-Type Barn Find
We’re all a bit guilty of over-using the term “barn find” as of recently, but the Jaguar you’re about to see is the dictionary definition of it.
The renowned H&H Classics auction at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, U.K. will take place next month, and their staff has been hard-at-work promoting this stunning treasure—an untouched 1964 3.8 Jaguar E-Type.
The E-Type was originally purchased from a Jaguar distributor in the town of Trent, and it’s seen the ownership of three different individuals since. The most recent one purchased this red exterior with gray leather interior E-Type back in 1970 as a gift to his wife, but the vehicle hardly ever moved, and word is that it’s remained stagnant since the mid 70’s.
The vehicle has been offered for sale by the family of the deceased owner, who can be seen towing the vehicle out its barn on this exquisitely produced video by, H&H Classics.
According to H&H, only 1,798 of these right-hand drive 3.8 Coupes were ever built, making this exact example one of the (if not the most) original one still in existence. With only 52,738 miles in the odometer, it’s probably one of the least-driven E-Types as well.
The auction house estimates this stunning barn find will sell for about $52,000 dollars, and will certainly require much more than that to bring it to its original glory. But then again, would you really want to make it look like most E-Types on the road today? Also going through be block is a heavenly 1959 XK150 SE 3.4 Dropped Coupe estimated to bring over $200,000 dollars.
What a beauty!
