  jaguar e-type & porsche 912

Often heralded as the most beautiful car ever made, this dusty, rusty Series 1 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Roadster is still with its original owner. He purchased it new in 1965, and, this summer, sent it to Yorkshire Classic & Sports Cars for restoration later this year. In its early years, it was primarily used for towing trailers of cattle and sheep to trade fairs - if tractors got stuck in muddy fields, then the unlikely scene of this elegant E-Type pulling them out was common. It was barn-stored 15 years ago where it has mainly been used by sheep - they sleep in it - while mice make themselves comfy under the engine bay.
The 1967 Porsche 912 was originally in Polo Red with tan leather, and was first registered in Motherwell. It's a well-spec’d example with a rare five-speed gearbox and 911-style dials. Since last winter, it has been in the care of YC&SC, who are carrying out a complete restoration for its owner.
