1971 Land Rover Series lla
This 1971 Series IIa was lost in a West Virginia barn since 2001 with a reported 30k original miles when found.

The vehicle was retrieved and then subjected to a total restoration starting with a brand new frame. At the same time the vehicle underwent a total upgrade to make it into a modern high performance road vehicle without losing any of its incredible off road performance, for which these great vehicles have been known for during the past 70 years in which they have been manufactured. Not only was this process a vehicle performance upgrade but it also included custom installing modern driver and passenger conveniences such as a bespoke sound system, up to date air conitioning and use of lightweight alloy body panels to eliminate rusting with age.

1962 Jaguar E-Type OTS
A veritable time warp, Old English White with black leather. This car has been in the same family for fifty four years and has accumulated only 42,000 miles. The car was ordered from Jaguar Cars in New York and was shipped from the factory in the UK in December 1962. The car was registered by the owner in NY in April 1963.

The car comes complete with all of its factory documents including manufacturer’s warranty, periodic maintenance vouchers, operating, maintenance and service handbooks. A full set of working original keys whose numbers are identified on the vehicle invoice. Optional equipment also identified on the vehicle invoice as factory options: seat belts and wing mirrors. The original toolkit, jack and tonneau are all present and in working order. All vehicle systems are fully functional.

All numbers are matching, and the body number is still visible, hand written in yellow marker and is also clearly shown on the fire wall plate.

To find a car with single family ownership and only 42,000 miles is virtually unheard of. This car would surely be a winner in any preservation class at any Jaguar event.  The car has been inspected by current Jaguar factory personnel and is believed to be one of the best and most original pre-owned cars that they have ever seen. The condition of the car is well shown in the large number of recent photographs that are attached.
This fine piece of automotive excellence, ready to ship from the UK,  without any delay, is being offered for $295,000 US. This is a unique opportunity to buy a very special vehicle.
