Also sure to grab a few headlines is a 1962 Jaguar E-type. This Series 1 roadster is finished in black with red leather interior, and carries an estimate of £67,000-£73,000. 

Another E-type, a 1969 S2 2+2, requires some recommissioning, though it did undergo a bodywork restoration in 2005 and is mechanically sound, with new steering rack and new tyres. Expect to pay around £20k for a nice winter project.

Definitely not a project is a concours-condition, one-owner from new, 1974 Jensen Interceptor III. Meticulously maintained throughout its life, it has won numerous awards, and has an estimate of £36,000-£40,000.
