Evaluation: Visually maintained, largely original | Represented as a one-owner car with 26,271 actual miles. Recent service including brakes, tires, mufflers, air conditioning, fuel system, carbs, and fluid flush. Partial repaint in original color shows a few obvious blemishes but is mostly good. Trunk looks grubby, but the engine bay and underbody are impressive for an unrestored car. Worn but sound original leather. Clean switchgear and clear gauges. Uneven shut lines. A used Jag, but a well-kept and consistently maintained one. It doesn’t seem to need anything serious to be a fun driver. Located in Connecticut.
Bottom Line: This car ticks all the right boxes for a V-12 E-Type (roadster, four-speed, wire wheels, and air conditioning). If we take all that into account, along with its deficiencies, this price is a bargain, although not a steal.
