Joan Baez flat floor series I e-type roadster: what did the authorities dump it for?


Freshman Member
When I was a college kid in Detroit, she was my favorite singer. I remember she had a Jag E-type but only today found out it was silver metallic, bought by her just when she was becoming a big star. In some documentary on Joan, you see the songstress in the car. Anyway that bad girl didn't pay her taxes (maybe as a protest against the Vietnam war) and the car was confiscated by authorities in Monterey County,Ca and sold maybe around 1964 when the car was three years old. I wonder if anyone has a news story or ad that tells what the car sold for back then? I am only interested in the prices it changed hands for in its early days as I know today it is in the over $100,000 class if it survives. I wonder if she even remembers the car...?
