    How incredibly sad. There are still most likely a lot of usable parts in there, so I hope this one doesn't get hauled away for scrap. At the very least the title should be preserved to allow another E-Type to be built up around it.

    And to think that in 1963 someone was showing off their new car....just sad.

    Hope someone can come along and rescue at least a remnant of this car before it returns entirely to dust.

    It's very sad to see a beautiful car like the E Type to be in this kind of state. What where the owners thinking? Can't understand why they'd leave it to rust away like this, maybe it's because the owners had died and people had forgotten about it, or either they couldn't afford to restore it and was left, or maybe it was stolen and was dumped in a deserted area.

    No, the gentlemen bought two cars, a coupe and a roadster. The coupe had less rust, he had bought the roadster as a "parts car", drove it home dissassmbled it and left it out side for 35 years. Coupe was parked indoors after dissassemby.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
