Paul, your flag shows you’re in the US, are you therefore looking to import one or other from Europe to America?
Have you physically seen either car? As you can appreciate it is only when you are able to properly inspect a car that you or anyone from the forum can get a truly useful idea of a car’s value.
If you are in the UK, please change your flag and if so then I’d recommend you asking for a professional E Type restorer to view either or both cars on your behalf.
It’ll cost you their time and travel expenses but it’ll be well worth paying. You might even find they know of other cars that would suit your needs.
One on here is Angus Moss, a very well respected restorer/rebuilder of E Types. Look at his website:

That’s the best advice I can suggest.

Your location can be added in your profile and will help us respond to your questions easier.....the flag typically represents your nationality....Steve

The flat floor looks good, seems a bit cheaper than one sees them advertised for, the level of restoration and originality is paramount down to literally nuts and bolts. If you have the chassis numbers of those cars you can start by looking them up in xkdata website if you haven’t already.

The 61 OTS looks good but has a number of non original items.
Depends on what you are looking for (condition or originality).
