Affordable E-type is there such a thing?

OK, stop laughing. I am looking for a tired, ragged old cat. Even a 2+2 will do. I don’t care if it has an engine or transmission. I will consider most anything to get one back in my garage. thanks. ron

Keep looking on craigslist and such and hope something pops up…
what should it cost and what should it do is the question!

Now, I like rat rods… this one?

Is…verrrry interestink.

Hope it’s got a well-built 2180 innit…:smirk:

If there is THAT much visible rust, it’s almost a guarantee it’ll need ALL the tin, from the doors down, side-to-side, replaced, plus very likely the VERY expensive front frames.

I used to live on a farm. Not familiar with the term ‘barn fresh’.


What kind of $$ are you looking to spend?

Is that a dark Sable?

My standard 4.2 coupe was 120 grand a year ago now they average 80 in driver condition.
Wait just a bit longer they are all dropping unless really rare or concourse.
There are so many in between…about 70,000 to be exact.
A series 2 , 2+2 can be had in the teens.
30 percent of pebble cars sold last weekend.
Theres a big shift coming, youll get your car.
If it were me again, find a shell,
If your going to tell us you have 3 grand to spend, see you in the next life………
Good luck my friend

But I got mine for $2300…

In 1982 :rofl::joy:

Didn’t you mention a few months ago that Hagerty we’re going to revise their E-type prices downward?

Is that happening?

Signs of a recession on the horizon… collectables are the first spending cut, then entertainment and restaurants, then everything else.

Oh yeah

That guy is going to owe a lot of money…

I don’t understand your comment. Who’s ‘that guy’?

…and yet some others say flight to collectible cars is the norm during recessions. Don’t ever try to guess the market… I mean with anything other than discretionary income.

This isn’t a recession issue, its an evolution issue.
It wont take long.
