Jag-You-Are: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 2+2

Jaguars are a recently acquired taste for the Barnfinder, and better late than never...E-Type values are skyrocketing and so many of these lovely Brits have had serious rust issues and/or repairs. That's why this find is so compelling...a lifelong Arizona car with zero rust... and it's a runner! The downsides are testimony to it's dry southwestern home- a completely baked-away interior in need of a full soft trim makeover.

    1967 Jaguar E-Type 2+2    $15,000

Now true Anglophiles will be quick to point out that this is the 2+2 variant E-Type. However to the untrained eye, the addition of a rear seat and slightly revised roofline may seem unnoticeable. Some have even come to prefer it as a way to justify a classic sports car with a young family. Make no mistake, from the drivers seat forward the car is pure Jaguar.

The engine is the famous 4.2 liter straight six with desirable triple carbs. The transmission is automatic. We love the color combination..one of our favorites on a Jaguar..Primrose yellow with a black interior. Or what's left of it after a lifetime in the Arizona sun.

The Series 1 cars are the most desirable, making this solid starting point a very do-able investment. This car comes from the original owner, who had the car stored indoors for decades. The car is available for $15,000 USD.
Contact the Barnfinder! if you are interested in this car..it's still in its Arizona home.
