Cheapest You'll Find: 1968 Jaguar E-Type Coupe

What's an E-Type worth these days if the front end looks charred and you can't even tell if it is the gorgeous coupe or the ungainly 2+2...which can't be that ungainly if you have a hard time telling it apart from the coupe...but I think this is a 2 seat coupe version offered for a fraction of the typical going price. Find this 1968 Jaguar E-Type Coupe offered for $11,500 in Walnut Creek, CA via craigslist.

A short blurb from the seller:

1971 1969 jag 
fuel: gas 
title status: clean 
transmission: manual 
This old jag needs to find its way home. I’ve had it for long enough and didn’t do anything with it. If you can make a deal I have the title and the keys & the car turns over. Thanks

  1. Not a 2+2 version, but still frightful. That's going to need everything done to it. As Jennifer Garner would say, "What's in your wallet?"

  2. Initial thought was LS swap this thing and go racing. Then I read that it turns over, this is going to make someone very not as rich as they currently are.

  3. So few pictures, so many questions! Certainly looks like a 2-seater. Does not show obvious rust. The bonnet might be a replacement piece. That wrinkle just ahead of the driver's doors would warrant some serious investigation (along with nearly everything else!). Price is terrific if a credible story emerges. Or some bank is going to do well...

  4. In a curious move, the buyer raised the price due to low offers. hope that works out for him somehow (it won't)
