Jaguar XK120, XK140, XK150, E-type, 1949-75

Extreme asking prices for early E-Types continue to follow international trends, however local sales at those levels are hard to confirm. One that did achieve mega money was an early-build fixed-head coupe that at Pebble Beach auction made US$620,000.

Later 4.2 coupes and especially automatic 2+2s can still be found at less than $100,000, with Series 2 Roadsters around $200,000.

Our suspicions last year regarding $300,000 V12 Roadsters proved correct and this year’s average better reflects the cost of an excellent manual car.

A fixed-roof XK140 that sold at auction for $91,000 looked tidy and may put the $100-160,000 being sought for other examples into perspective.
