Jaguar E-type 2+2s hotting up

Demand for good Jaguar E-type 2+2s has pushed prices up 45 per cent over the past two years, despite them being the least coveted variants. Until recently, high values and high-quality restorations have been largely reserved for the better-proportioned two-seater coupés and roadsters, but the child-friendly 2+2s are playing catch-up.

Excellent examples of Series 1s are more than £37k and the very best can make £55k, though that's still a fraction of the professional rebuild cost. Series 3 V12s are a little cheaper at £33k and 50k respectively, while the Series 1.5 and Series 2s are £32-47k in equivalent condition.

Beware that these have been entry-level E-types for so long that few have enjoyed comprehensive maintenance or restoration, so their recent jump in values is bound to attract superficial makeovers in pursuit of a quick profit.
