I am not going to publish what my reserve is. Rest assured THIS car is both mechanically and exterior, interior sound car that is priced very, very reasonable to sell unlike many on this site that are asking far too much for what little, generic description (no mention of history,documentation, mechanicals, bodywise, etc) of the cars they are selling be it a Series 1 or the Series 3 model. I am not a dealer holding on to a car looking for a profit, nor am I includinga "history of the E type Jaguar" in the description, that's wasted space in my opinion ...If you are bidding, you know what you are bidding on and the history behind the E type, so Ifyou are a collector, you know that you never can or will get your money out of what you have put into a collectible car. I am NOT looking at a profit as it will never happen, but I know this car is priced for selling and whoever gets this car will get a great car and a wise investment courtesy of my efforts. Thanks and good luck on your bidding.
