Classic Car Auctions sale on September 24th features a great choice of two fabled British marques, Aston Martins and Jaguar E-Types for those seeking their dream car.

A home-market, right-hand drive, manual gearbox car, VGM 32M was delivered new to the current owner’s company as his ‘new company car’. In the late seventies, he was able to buy it from the company and has kept it ever since.
The Lavender Blue paint is original, however, there is now evidence of some ‘micro blistering’ so please have a look. Essentially original as you might expect with just 33,000 miles and retains its original dark blue interior, hood and carpets.
Recently serviced by Epping Jaguar including a new fuel pump. Lovely history file, original warranty card, handbook, MOTs to corroborate the indicated mileage, invoices. UK-supplied, manual gearbox, one keeper from new, 32,570 miles and a super rare colour.

It’s a 2+2 with a couple of child-friendly rear seats filling the space that in the two-seater was occupied by a shelf.
