Sir William Lyons, founder of the company that would go on to be called Jaguar, introduced the E-Type 2+2 to the public in 1965. The 2+2 would go on to become the best-selling model of the E-Type, and the car Sir Lyons showed to the public has been found in a barn in the Netherlands. The very first left-hand drive example, the car was originally sold to a writer in the US. In the late '80s, the car was sold and exported to the Netherlands, where it was stored in a barn awaiting a restoration that never came. A collection of spare parts along with the original motor and transmission is included in the sale.
