Designed with aerodynamics in mind, noted aerodynamicist, Malcolm Sayer, was instrumental in the overall look and feel of the 1962 Jaguar E Type. It is this curvature and beautiful design that not only made the E Type – or XKE as it was called in the U.S. market – an instant classic, but that also increased the car’s ability to cheat the wind. One of the most recognizable sports cars in the world, the Jaguar E Type dazzled buyers with its long, slightly curved hood, it’s perfectly placed oval air intake and its glass headlights that were tucked into the fenders with care. Holding the top spot on Sports Car International’s list of “Top Sports Cars of the 1960’s,” many British car collectors and enthusiasts have dreamed about owing a Jaguar E Type for decades. Whether it was the iconic styling and classic beauty that drew you to the 1961 E Type, the prestige of owning one of the world’s finest classics, or because it was handed down in your family for generations, the Alex Manos team understands the importance and significance these cars have had to their owners and are sensitive to that throughout the sales process.


1962 Jaguar E Type Seller’s Guide

When it comes time to evaluate your 1962 Jaguar E Type, one of the hardest parts is deciding on a value. Value is directly related to the condition and rarity of your particular model. A “Very Rough” model would be defined as non-drivable and in need of major restoration. A model with extensive rust damage would also fall into this category. A “Running” example, on the other hand, has some rust and signs of visible wear, but the vehicle is sound and everything functions. A “Nice” 1962 E Type would be a clean example with some wear and no visible rust that also drives well and only needs minor work. A “Nice” example can be enjoyed as is or is a good candidate for restoration. “Very Nice” would be defined as a good driver that needs no work, yet is not in mint or pristine condition. A “Mint” Jaguar E Type is a complete and perfect restoration or an extremely original model. These definitions will help you as you decide on a price for your E Type. Additionally, it should be mentioned that Jaguar purchasers favor the manual cars and original wheels. If your car is an automatic and does not have the original wire-wheels, you’ll want to make the necessary deductions. The Alex Manos team has helped many classic car owners with the evaluation and assessment of their classics and would be happy to share their knowledge and expertise with you.
