Finished in one of the best colour combinations of Opalescent Silver Grey coachwork with Scarlet Red hide and matching Red carpets. Gleaming chrome wire wheels with two ear spinners and white wall tyres which enhance the appearance, Grey seat belts trimmed in classic webbing and chrome fittings give the car an air of sophistication and added safety.
The execution of the restoration works carried out have been to the very highest standard of quality and exceeds the standard of work carried out by Jaguar Heritage – this is the benchmark of how good E-Type is. The final attention to detail during a restoration in our view is where 40 percent of the time is absorbed. MM perfect fitment of the gaps and crucially, getting the doors to open and close with ease is a masterful art to get right on an E-Type.
The paint work inside the engine bay is immaculate running from the bulk head, space frame and inside the bonnet is as good as the finish to the exterior and with gleaming polished cam covers looks fantastic. Mechanically, everything is in extremely good order is correct to period specification with the exception of the fitment of 5 speed all schromesh gearbox, triple Webers and race cams and a full stainless steel exhaust running to the ceramic coated manifold – exciting & proper!
Being one of the later of the Series 1, these cars in our view are the real drivers choice, benefiting from the highly capable 4.2 litre engine which was kept in circulation by The Jaguar Car Company until the late 90’s. An ergonomically redesigned cockpit, slightly wider and significantly more comfortable on long jaunt’s make these late cars effortless to drive and even by todays standard a very capable outside lane car.
