Another WTF…

Filed under: Cars — chuck goolsbee @ 9:38 am

eBay Motors: Jaguar : E-Type (item 120319027365 end time Nov-05-08 20:51:54 PST).

“La Mans Winning Coupe” ??

To my knowledge no E-type ever won LE Mans, and those that ran were not FHC’s.

The asking price for this pile of iron oxide held together by paint is … astounding as well.

  1. Interesting. Even the iron oxide has given up in many places.

    This might be a nice car after $120,000+ for a reshell and total restoration of the rest. I’m not rushing to the ATM, though…

  2. MD, that’s what I’d charge to do a resto on it: afterwards, he’d have a SOILD, 99+ point car….that was worth upwards of $80K-$90K.

    🙂

  4. Furthermore the seller has less than 86% positive feedback: extreme care is needed in this case, I think. I did write to him (can’t be a “he” can it?) and point out the fact that E types never won at Le Mans -let’s see if he changes the ad description….
