Buy Them Before Us: Pre-Owned Picks For April 30 Car News

Our great car trawl starts with an E-Type, the best looking of them all. It’s a subjective judgment, of course, but Enzo thought it was then, so that’s enough for us.

Our find is a Series 2 registered in 1969. The 4.2 liter automatic 2 + 2 was overhauled in the 1980s, with a rebuilt engine and various new panels installed. A new odometer was also installed and the odometer currently shows 17,000 miles. The car has an inheritance certificate confirming all of this.
