Was that E-Type that Herbie smashed a real one or a kit?

He smashed a E-Type? Don't you mean the Lamborghini?

We saw a Lamborghini but fortunaly the car that was beat up was either an E-Type or a form of E-type replica, I'm leaning more toward an E-type though. There are plenty of scenes in The Love Bug such as the Mexican where you can see a bunch of junk cars (and a few of Disneys other movie cars) so I wouldn't doubt that the E-type was already a wreck.

The car Dean Jones pulls up to the firehouse in is a Lamborghini 400. When Herbie is smashing into the car, it is in fact a real Jaguar E type (I don't know of that car ever being produced in kit form). At the time the movie was made, old sports cars were just used cars and not the collector items they are today. The Jag I am not 100% on if it was wrecked before hand, but I do have photos in my collection of both the Lamborghini and the Jag. The Jag pics actually show the car being constructed for the movie, so what ever it started like, it was made to look worse and then painted.

I heard the Jag was pulled out of the junkyard, if you shared those photos I could try to pinpoint any clues that would indicate its shape.
