1962 Jaguar E-Type
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
This beautiful OTS was restored approximately 18 years ago and went on display in the museum of the Malcolm Pray Achievement Center in Bedford, N.Y. Motorcars Incorporated purchased this E-Type in early summer 2022 and immediately inspected the vehicle to determine what would need refreshing. We replaced the hood envelope but much of the previous restoration work was still fresh. Well maintained, the rugs and console were in great shape and the top is in better condition than can what be bought today. New Bridgestone period-correct tires on new Dayton wheels with new knockoffs were fitted to the car. The complete drivetrain was restored as we verified numbers and operation. The car has all new rubber products and new fluids, and runs beautifully. Although it has the locations for side latch treatment, it is right after the changeover.
Paint and chrome on this car are concours-level quality. The combination of Carmine Red with the red interior is not listed as a special order but the combination is uncommon, making this totally matching numbers 3.8 OTS a rare sight.
Mechanically, the car has a proper, steel correct exhaust system, new porcelain-coated exhaust manifolds, fresh brake hoses and brake pads. The battery and belts are new, but the jack and knockoff hammer are original as are the 23K miles on the odometer. This car is a great mix of dependable fun with beautiful history!
