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.

The Jaguar E-Type s inherent beauty is legendary, and it is one of a few cars to ever be exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Production of the car began in 1961, and it originally featured a 3.8-liter, overhead-cam, six-cylinder engine. Its styling, which was the work of Malcolm Sayer and had been overseen by company founder Sir William Lyons, evolved from Jaguar s Le Mans winning D-Type race cars.
The E-Type s construction was a multi-tube front end bolted to a steel body shell. The long, low hood and front fenders were one assembly and hinged at the front for unobstructed engine access. Introduced in 1964, the up-sized 4.2-liter inline six had 265 horsepower and could haul the car from 0 to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds, with a maximum speed of 149 mph and in incredible style and comfort.
Built on 28 February 1967 and shipped new to Jaguar s distributorship in New York City, the E-Type offered here was sold to an R.S. Goldsamt. Mr. Goldsamt is said to have owned the car for the next 22 years before selling it to an enthusiast in New Mexico. Around this time, the car was fully restored before the owner parked the car in his garage, where it sat for another two decades. Well preserved in storage, the car received a full mechanical restoration prior to being acquired by a German owner in 2015. It was repainted in its original color of Opalescent Silver Blue before being sold back to the United States, where it has remained since.
Presented with a history file containing images of the E-Type pre-restoration and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate certifying the vehicle retains its matching-numbers engine, this E-Type would be a fine addition to any collection.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo19.
