Classic & Sportscar Restorations complete E-Type nut and bolt rebuild




In September 2017 Classic & Sportscar Restorations completed a full nut and bolt rebuild on a Jaguar E-Type Series One 4.2 Roadster for a Lincolnshire-based client.

Working closely with the enthusiast owner, Classic & Sportscar Centre sourced a North American import, matching numbers car in the South of England. The car was found to be in sound, usable condition finished in Primrose Yellow.   The car was fully dismantled, stripped back to bare metal and rebuilt from the ground up. The body was restored with various new panels, fully prepared and re-finished in Jaguar's attractive Opalescent Blue Metallic. The engine was rebuilt to a 'fast road' specification, the all synchro gearbox rebuilt and the differential was both rebuilt and converted to a U.K. specification axle ratio. A left hand to right hand drive conversion was carried out and uprated disc brakes were fitted to handle the additional power. With various new ancillaries, some powder coating, new chrome work the car was treated to a full re-trim in top quality Dark Blue leather with a matching mohair hood,. The car was finished to an exacting and absolutely superb standard. While a full restoration of a classic car is not remarkable in itself, the Malton Coachworks is establishing an enviable reputation for completing these major projects to a very high standard efficiently and on budget. If you would like to discuss a similar project from acquisition to completion, or have a car you would like to have professionally restored, please do contact us on 01944 758000 or sales@classicandsportscar.ltd.uk
