That sack of cack makes Chitty look practically finished.

I wonder if the Mr Goggins who ran the scrap yard was related to the Mrs Goggins who ran Postman Pat's post office?

They were divorced. He had 'unhealthy' thoughts about Truly Scrumptious, so Mrs G, feeling she had been made a fool of (through no fault of her own) left in shame for a quieter life in Greendale.


A tragic tale.

Best part is this line:

"This vehicle is NOT recorded on any registers."

Reading between the lines.... they're advertising that you could take the VIN crossbar piece and any other ID, rebuild the car and pretend none of this ever happened. :lol: :roll:

Exactly. Imagine how much less a perfect looking restored E Type is worth with a Cat C marker or similar against it :shock:

I wonder if the fire damage was this side of the Atlantic or the other? It would hardly have been worth importing in that state.
Although being damaged in the USA might explain being "not recorded" I suppose.

Either way, I don't want to buy it!

Might have come from elsewhere in Europe, plenty of LHD E-Types were exported beyond the U.S.

I'm assuming the seller is referencing that the car isn't listed in any of the Jaguar registers (XKEData or similar), versus any DMV / DVLA type records. I would hope this received 'total write-off' by some government agency. :lol:

I think the front bumper design gives it away as a US export model.

I suppose it is possible that the car was fire damaged when in storage and not insured? That would explain it being not recorded? I do know that a lot of UK "write offs" get exported because their history doesn't show up in other markets though :shock:
