Jaguar E-type doubles its estimate at auction

Published 13 June 2016

A 1964 Jaguar E-type S1 FHC achieved almost twice its £32,000 estimate when it sold for £63,800 at auction. The car went under the hammer Barons' sale at Sandown Park on June 4.

The top ten cars at the sale included four Triumphs, including a 1965 TR4A with independent rear suspension. An unfinished, chassis-up restoration project, it sold for £16,500.

Another strong seller was a 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SL Pagoda (£47,300), which was in original condition after 30 years in storage.

At the other end of the price spectrum, an enthusiast snapped up an unrestored 1968 Triumph Vitesse 2-litre ‘barn find’ for just £450, and can now settle into enjoying the restoration project.

Tim Gascoigne, Barons’ auction manager, said, ‘It’s another set of pleasing results for Barons, especially with us having such a busy year with so many sales on the calendar.’

Barons next sales are the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club auction at Burghley House on 25 June and Barons Connoisseurs’ Classic Car Collection sale at Tattersalls at Newmarket on 12 July.
