To find a Jaguar E-Type car for restoration, visit websites that sell classic cars, such as Auto Trader Classics, Hemmings or ClassicCars.com, as of October 2015. Look for listings that specify that the car is in need of restoration, or use the photos to gauge the necessary amount of work. Other places to find E-Type cars for restoration include eBay, classic car auctions, Craigslist and newspaper classified listings.
Auto Trader Classics separates Jaguar E-Type cars by model year. Individual listing titles do not always mention that the car is in need of restoration, so the photos are essential to the search process. Click on the thumbnail photo that accompanies the listing to see the full-size version and view other images from the seller.
The Hemmings website includes Jaguar E-Type listings from around the world. The seller's location is listed under the listing title. Use the search refinement tools on the left side of the page to find vehicles within a specific distance of your city. The refinement tools also enable you to filter listings by vehicle condition; click on Fair or Project to find a car in need of restoration.
ClassicCars.com does not offer many search filters, but the website offers many pages of E-Type car listings. The easiest way to find a car for restoration is to sort the listings by ascending price. Lower-priced cars often need more work.
