E-type with just 1733 miles on the clock could make £150,000

Published 29 June 2017

A 1969 Jaguar E-type with just 1733 miles on the clock is going under the hammer. The 4.2-litre 2+2 finished in red with beige trim will go under the hammer at H&H Classics sale at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, on 26 July.

The car has had just one registered keeper and was last taxed for road use 40 years ago. It has been subject to much recommissioning and restoration work by marque specialist Alan Collins of Maldon (2000-2009).

It was never fitted with a stereo and the blanking plate, speaker grilles and aerial bung remain in place. The car retains its original 'matching numbers' engine and manual gearbox. The car is estimated to sell for between £100,000 and £150,000.

Damian Jones, head of sales, at H&H Classics asked, 'Is this the lowest mileage E-Type in the world?' There's no definitive answer to his question, but it's certainly the lowest mileage one we can remember seeing for sale.
