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.

In 1964 Jaguar upgraded its popular E-Type with a larger version of the highly developed six-cylinder XK engine, now displacing 4.2 liters and developing 265 hp. This beautifully restored roadster example typifies the sleek design and nuanced character of these highly celebrated cars. According to a certificate from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, chassis no. 12834 completed assembly in late March 1966, and roughly two weeks later the car was dispatched for retail to the United States. Distributed to the famed Jaguar Cars New York, the roadster was sold in late May to Michael Hamilton of Chicago, Illinois.
Though the E-Types intermediary history is currently unknown, by 2007 it had come into the care of Roy Fine of Neenah, Wisconsin. More recently acquired by the consignor, a respected collector in Florida, the Jaguar was treated to a full restoration around 2011 that included a high-quality cosmetic refinish in the original color combination. The roadster continues to feature a period-correct radio and chromed wire wheels, which, in combination with the aircraft-style switchgear, lend the car a wonderful degree of vintage panache.
It should be noted that while the Jaguar was affixed with a new data plate upon restoration, the original factory chassis plate is included. Also accompanied by an owners manual in the proper pouch, and documented with the Jaguar Heritage certificate, this outstanding E-Type is reported to be in exceptional mechanical condition, having completed a number of driving events. The roadster would make a beautiful addition to any sporting collection, ideal for use in vintage tours or display at local concours delegance and JCNA meets.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am20.
