A trio of early E-Types

Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Coupé

A few months ago, a true "rolling sculpture" arrived at our classic car garage: an early Jaguar E-Type Series 1, with a 3.8 litre engine and the typical bucket seats and the aluminium-trimmed centre console and instrument panel.

The chassis and engine number matched, and after checking over thirty very specific details on this car, the high number of original 1962 parts could only confirm the almost untouched state of this car.

At the end of our advert, we asked our classic car friends a question: is this an excellent basis for a restoration project, or should this "art on four wheels" remain untouched?

Unfortunately, the car was too far to do a conservative restoration, so together with the new owner we are now pursuing a high-level full nut and bolt restoration of this timeless classic. Stay tuned for more updates!

 

Jaguar E-Type Series 1 "Flat Floor" Roadster

Just like so many things in life, restorations follow the "80-20" rule: 80% of the work takes 20% of your time... but the remaining 20% of the work, you bet it will take you the full 80%! At our workshop, we often welcome co-called "fully restored cars" which, upon closer inspection, haven't reached a satisfactory level yet. That's where we jump in, to bring the restoration project to a successful conclusion. And if we have to, we go all the way back to those first 20%!

 

Jaguar E-Type "Outside Bonnet Lock" Roadster

With only 500 of these very first series E-Types built, this is a rare find. This one ticks all the boxes: it's a roadster, it's LHD, and even though it's currently red with a black interior, it was originally black with a red interior – a very desirable colour combination if you ask us! Full restoration soon to start.
