The E-Type Jaguar has been described on countless occasions as one of the most beautiful cars in the world. Over the years it has built a reputation amongst Jaguar enthusiasts and classic car collectors for being the ultimate classic to own.
If you are lucky enough to own one and are planning to undertake the restoration work by yourself, this manual will take you through the full nut-and-bolt restoration of a very early example, E-Type Jaguar Chassis No. 60.
From preparing the work space to dismantling the car, restoring the body, engine and electrical components, plus painting, trimming and much more, the book will show you how the world's premier Jaguar restoration company does what it does best, providing helpful hints and tips and illustrating the restoration process with detailed photographs.
Fundamentally, all six-cylinder E-Types follow the same principles of construction and engineering, with subtle changes as the model progressed. There are similarities too, with the V-12-engined Series 3. So be aware of the differences between your model and the one featured.
GB16: Jaguar E-Type Six Cylinder Originality Guide by Dr. Thomas Haddock and Dr. Michael Mueller, published in 2017 by Dalton Watson Fine Books.
This book is based on research spanning almost five decades. As such, the book is archaeological in nature, based more on observations of cars than on factory publications or other literature. The examination of principally un-restored cars, many partly or completely disassembled and still retaining their original configuration, permitted discovery of much detailed infor-mation not reported before. The subject is covered in depth, with 1568 pictures and 516 pages.
A few of the many topics treated in the book are:
• Variations between early and late E-type Moss transmissions
• An analysis of engine block and head part numbers and configurations
• A review of the myriad of small sheet metal variations in the tub, bonnet and doors, including coupe bodywork in early 3.8L production
• Hidden markings on instruments
• Review of subtle variations in early cooling fan motors
• Coupe sun-visor evolution
• Markings and tags on carburettors
• Markings on various tyres originally supplied on E-types
This book significantly advances the understanding of the original configuration of these remarkable cars.
