A rare E-Type Jaguar will be one of the highlights of H&H Classics’ sale at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, on 12 October.

The car has not been used since the mid 1970s, when its late owner put it into storage. At the time it had covered just over 50,000 miles.

‘Delightfully unmolested’

Damian Jones, head of sales at H&H Classics, says the car is estimated to sell for £35,000 to £45,000. Finished in red with a grey-themed interior the car is a 3.8-litre coupe variant – of which 1,798 were produced.

Jones adds: ‘Considering the perennial popularity of the immortal E-Type Jaguar, it’s extraordinary how many have been confined to barns over the years and are only now resurfacing. This example is a delightfully unmolested late 3.8-litre Coupe that’s just been exposed to the full light of day for the first time in around 40 years and not even been started for around 15.
