1969 Jaguar XK-E Series II Spotted in the Wild, Literally
It’s not every day you spot a 1969 Jaguar XK-E Series II “in the wild,” as auto writers like to say when a car is spotted on the streets. But this would be an even more rare occasion, and an even better usage of that phrase.
You’re looking at a recent ClassicCars.com‘s Pick of the Day, and you can certainly see why: because it’s completely bonkers.
While we have a few theories as to why this classic Jag is chilling in the high grass out back behind some well-tagged brick building — namely that it was parked there in 1969 by a guy who dropped acid and totally forgot he owned a soon-to-be-classic Jag — we really don’t have much to go on.
The car is being listed by a dealer in Astoria, New York, who merely recommends that this would indeed be a great car to restore, and that it has “rust in the floors.” Which would suggest at least a certain amount of neglect. As would the lush field it appears to be stuck in.
He also mentions the brown and tan XK-E has a Series 1 hood and straight-6 engine, but doesn’t get specific as to whether that’s of the 3.8 or 4.2 variety. All this for the low, low price of $37,500.
What do you think, is the seller smoking some really high grass?
