Covered Headlamps, Last of the 3.8

1964 Jaguar E-Type FHC

There are few things in this world, let alone cars, as unbelievably beautiful as an early E-Type Jaguar. The glass-covered headlamps, the proper triple-SU carburetors under the long bonnet – those define a Series 1 car, the most pure interpretation of the form.

The maroon color is unusual, and striking against the chromed wire wheels. The car isn’t perfect, by any means, as the seller notes some surface rust inside the trunk. The details aren’t ideal, either, with some peeling paint under the hood and the underbody, but it looks to be a good driver.

If the price stays under $50k, this will be a great buy.

It’s on eBay in Colorado with reserve not yet met.1964 Jaguar E-Type interior 1964 Jaguar E-Type engine
