Just saw this - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/113784654477?ul_noapp=true

It's a good deal at the moment...

Don't suppose it'll end anywhere near that price in 9 days time!

What are these things typically worth?

They can fetch silly money - whether they are 'worth' the several hundred pounds that E Type jacks go for is debatable.
They don't seem to come up that often - so if you want one go for it!

I noticed in the ad that the Plus2 came with them from 1968. What did the earlier cars come with?

Mine didn't come with a jack or toolkit, and if I can get the right thing for a reasonable price that would be good :)

It just sold for GBP 185.00 ($235.41± USD) after 15 bids.

Impressive, since it hadn't really been cleaned up.

Cheers...

It certainly moved in the last few minutes nearly doubling in price!

I have a terrible feeling it’s not going to be used on a +2.

From the winners profile it looks like it’s gone to a trader and possibly to be morphed into an Etype Jack.

I welcome being corrected by the new owner who bought a bargain either way.

How can you see the winners profile? It’s all anonymised these days.
