Football legend George Best’s E-Type Jaguar
One of the ‘star cars’ at The Footman James Classic Car Show is set to be an E-Type Jaguar once owned by one of the world’s greatest footballers – George Best.
The previous owner was completely unaware of its star-status when purchasing the car, but it came to light after typing in the registration into Google search.
The current owner tells us about George Best’s Jag: ‘The car itself is in generally excellent condition, very original, a very good running and driving car, MOT’d and on the road with 67,000 miles. As far as I’m aware George owned three E-Types. One is now owned by Eagle E-Types, one has not been taxed for 30 years (whereabouts unknown), and this one. This is unusual as it has a blue velour interior and, even stranger, a red headlining. I assume he had the headlining changed.’
