Classic Car Auctions sale this coming weekend at the Warwickshire Event Centre, will see a fine selection Jaguars being offered from No Reserve to £50,000 in keeping with the auction theme of offering Everyman Classics.
Amongst the lots are four E-Types in the auction in vary degrees of conditions. One of the standouts is Lot 371 a 1969 Series 2 2+2 Coupe which has been in the current ownership for the last 34 years. Acquired by the current vendor in 1985 with 15,000 miles on the clock, it is now being offered with just under 30,000 miles. It has had just three owners in its lifetime and at one point spent nine years laid up. This E-type comes with an extensive history file, having undergone a bare metal restoration and also having a gearbox rebuild and overhaul in 2017, with the interior retaining its original patina. This car is ready to be enjoyed and offered with an estimate of £40,000 to £50,000.
Lot 328 will make a great restoration project, a 1969 left-hand-drive Series 2 E-type Roadster imported from the USA. It is supplied with a NOVA declaring all taxes paid. This car according to its heritage certificate has a manual gearbox from new but has no history. Estimated to sell at £15,000 to £18,000.
The best of the rest include a number of more modern Jaguars
CCA is offering six XK8s of differing specifications including these two fine examples of the sporty two door tourers. Lot 380 is a 2000 convertible, with the 4.0-litre V8 engine and an automatic gearbox, perfect for the summer days. This particular example has done just 21,000 miles from new and had only two owners. Presented in Sapphire Blue with an ivory leather interior, this car comes with extensive history and estimated at just £16,000 to £20,000.
If a soft top is not for you, Lot 391, a 1998 4.0-litre V8 coupe with even lower mileage at 13,805 and only one owner is also being offered.
