Toggle switch for the choke is crooked. Wavy dash top. Excellent paint in original color and excellent chrome. Very clean underneath. Grille doesn’t quite fit flush. Has flaws and age, but they really are minor and are offset by good paint and chrome in gorgeous colors. You’ll only notice any flaws once you’re inside. – An auction veteran. Sold at Worldwide Lake Forest in 2013 for $44,000, then hammered not sold at Worldwide Montgomery in 2014 at a high bid of $54,000 and sold at Auctions America Santa Monica last year for $70,400. It’s a representative trajectory of V-12 E-Type values, with this result being slightly expensive for an example in this condition.

1948 Jaguar Mark V 3.5 Drophead Coupe
Lot # 40 1948 Jaguar Mark V 3.5 Drophead Coupe; S/N C1260; Green/Beige leather; Beige cloth top; Estimate $85,000 – $125,000; Older restoration, 3- condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $49,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $53,900 – Dual SU carbs, painted centerlock wire wheels, dual wing mirrors, Lucas headlamps, landau bars, suicide doors, wood dash and window trim. – The faded older respray was never very good to begin with. A few touch ups, scratches and cracks around the nose, scratches on the left rear fender and a very light scrape on the tail. Small dent in the right front fender. Dry, cracked windshield molding. Top looks pretty good until you find the eight-inch rip in the left side. Very good newer seats and carpets. The rest of the interior is dull and aged, including dry, dull-looking wood. Older undercoated chassis. Surprisingly tidy and complete engine bay. Not a dog, but a car like his really deserves better than a half-done restoration. It’s a strong candidate for redoing the cosmetics and enjoying. – Mark V dropheads like this are frequently restored to concours winning condition and offer a desirable combination of style, decent weather protection and reliable performance from their pre-war 3 1/2 liter sixes. This result recognizes the mediocrity and age of its preparation and presentation and is an appropriate price for this example.
1969 Jaguar XKE SII Roadster
Lot # 56 1969 Jaguar XKE SII Roadster; S/N 1R7694; Primrose Yellow/Black leather; Black cloth top; Estimate $85,000 – $105,000; Older restoration, 3- condition; With Reserve; Not sold at Hammer bid of $76,000 – Centerlock wire wheels, Cooper Trendsetter narrow whitewalls, black cloth boot cover, woodrim steering wheel, BMC pushbutton radio. – Touched up chips at the back of the bonnet. Two chips on the nose. Masking errors around the door edges. Lots of chips at the back of the driver’s side door. The original gauges are so cloudy that looking at them will make you think you have cataracts. Dull switchgear. Good upholstery. Pretty colors, but nothing better than a mediocre driver. – Not sold at Mecum Monterey last year at a high bid of $61,000. Holding off on that bid was excusable, but third time likely won’t be a charm for this SII Roadster. The reported high bid was as much as the car deserves, and the seller is unlikely to find a much higher offer elsewhere.

  1. These old Jags are beautiful cars, especially when restored and maintained by those who can afford them. My experience with Jag ownership was short and bittersweet. In 1976 I bought a ’67 XKE, yellow, with only 42K miles showing on the gauges. I discovered quickly the cost of driving a beast with way too many moving parts heating up the 9 quarts or so motor oil during the south Florida summer. I became very poor very quickly, but did enjoy some great driving moments in my Jag. The best was letting a Brit flyboy off the Ark Royal have a drive during Fort Lauderdale’s bicentennial celebration and blasting through the Kinney tunnel, top down and well lubricated, before the overheating 4.2 required a lengthy stoppage and visit to Norman of England to add another cooling fan. My Jag had three! Unfortunately, I had to get rid of the Jag because it clearly was not designed for urban use in the Tropics. It was not until 2007 did I find the car the old Jag should have been- a Honda S2000, the best affordable sports car ever built.
