Four Cars For Charity

1967 Jaguar E Type

Four cars are going to be auctioned and sold to benefit charity. This is going to be part of the American Concours Foundation’s drive to help out various charities that they do want to reach out to. The list of charities includes the Amelia Island Concours Foundation as well as the Concous Las Vegas. These four vehicles are classic units and the auction is going to be sold online.

The four vehicles are a 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing Show Car, a 1954 Jaguar XK 120 Drop Head Coupe, a 1933 Lincoln KA V12 Model 513A, and a 1967 Jaguar E Type Vintage Roadster OTS which is prepped right up for the race track. All of these vehicles can be viewed on eBay Motors and that is where the auction is happening. The first and the third vehicles’ auctions ended last March 11th while for the other two, the auction ends on March 13.

These vehicles are, of course, made to still be in topnotch shape and if you would perhaps add an Edelbrock auto part for this one, the performance and capacity of the vehicles would surely be going up in no time flat.
