Finally finished (and now sold!) the 1970 Jaguar E-type

*Scroll to the bottom for the video*

Before the restoration the car was solid but the paint was dull, the chrome was pitted, the interior looked tired and it definitely needed some TLC.

Here are some before pictures.

The car has now been stripped back to bare metal, resprayed, re-chromed, engine recommissioned, new interior and headliner, finished off nicely with a set of period white wall tyres!

Judging by the amount of interest we’ve had, we think everyone is in agreement that it is now an excellent example!!
