What Car: 1967 Jaguar E Type Roadster

Under the Bonnet: 4.2 straight 6 triple carb

The Lowdown:

As petrol heads we all have our own personal list of cars we would love to own some day, some of us through a lot of hard work and effort may be lucky enough one day to complete that list. With the purchase of this rare 1967 Series one 4.2 liter Jaguar E Type Convertible, Olly is well on his way to completing his. This particular E Type arrived at the shop in a pretty solid condition, with tones on history, however the plan going forward is to undergo a full nut and bolt restoration to concours standard.

The plan:

Bodywork: Stripped back to bare metal, full rust treatment. Sprayed in its original factory colour ( will keep this a secret for now) 6 top coats and 6 layers of lacquer to create a glass finish.
Electrics:  All new electrics throughout.
Engine: The engine will be stripped down with all new gaskets and seals. Anything that needs replacing will be.
Brakes: Front disc brake conversion, this will be the only edition that is not factory spec.
To be continued….
