Hedge find Jaguar E-type 4.2 roadster offered at H&H

A 1966 Jaguar E-type 4.2 roadster that was found in a hedge will sell at H&H Auctions.

The lot was recently discovered in a garden in Bedfordshire, UK. A holly bush had to be butchered in order to free it.

The Jaguar E-type roadster remains in good condition despite its years spent in a hedge

It's still in very good condition, despite its years of entanglement, and is expected to realise around £55,000-65,000 ($72,116-85,228).

Barn find Jaguars are hugely popular with collectors, as they offer the opportunity to take on a restoration with a large percentage of the original parts.

Another example, a rare 1961 "flatfloor" E-type, realised £109,020 ($142,947) in a 2013 sale - soaring past its £30,000 ($39,336) estimate.

This won't be the only hedge find to star in the October 12 sale.

A 1933 Singer 2-litre, painted in the style of a Fox & Nicholl team car, is expected to make £40,000-50,000 ($52,556-65,695).

It was pulled out of a hedge in 1970 following decades of neglect and has since undergone a dramatic refurbishment.

The rolling chassis was repaired, while the bodywork was custom built.

The model for the restoration was the 1933 Singer Fox & Nicholl that finished seventh in the 1934 Le Mans 24-Hours.

Fox & Nicholl was a London based dealer, specialising in Lagondas.

It also operated its own works team, preparing cars for competition at its headquarters in Surrey.
