The remains of a 1966 Jaguar E-Type has been sold at auction for £37,665.
The classic car was damaged when a fire hydrant exploded above the storage facility where it was parked.
The Jag, which has just 60,000 miles on the clock, came with all of the original paperwork and even the replacement parts and sheet metal needed to repair it.
A Jaguar Heritage certificate confirmed authenticity and the original design and trim of the model so that it could be restored to its former glory.
John Shuck, who had owned the E-Type since 1974, had planned to get the car back into its pre-accident condition but the project was ‘put on the back burner’.
The six-cylinder engine had been restored.
The Series 1 E-Type was sold at the Bonhams Greenwich Concours d’Elegance Auction on Sunday June 4.
