‘Cushty’ Sum for Boycie’s Jag
A very special 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster, that starred in the second ever episode of legendary BBC sitcom Only Fools & Horses, sold for an impressive £115,875. Invited to appear in the episode titled “Go West Young Man”, and forever since been known as “Boycie’s E-Type” the car was hard fought over by several buyers in the room, the largely original and one owner from new car, sold for more than £40,000 over its lower estimate.
