Jaguar E-Type Reborn Project Offers Perfectly Restored Cars for $355,000 Concours quality restorations.

Jaguar Land Rover Classic has been all about Rovers in its Reborn series, presenting the Series I and Range Rover Classic model which we featured some months ago. As of last week Jaguar Classic has announced they’ll be adding a Jaguar E-Type Reborn project to the series completing 10 Series 1 E-type restorations.

As with the Land Rover and the Range Rover Classic, the Jaguar E-Type Reborn project will be a restoration rather than a re-creation, with appropriate donor vehicles “expertly sourced and comprehensively restored” to original factory standards with a starting price from US$355,000.

At this year’s Techno-Classica Essen, it will reveal the first of 10 E-types it plans to rebirth, this one a beautifully revitalised 1965 Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe 4.2. The car was originally exported to California and only covered 78,000 miles before being stored in 1983.

The body shell, engine, and gearbox have all been rebuilt by the Jaguar Classic team using period-appropriate parts and techniques. It will be possible to incorporate “sympathetic upgrades from later E-types” including an all-synchromesh gearbox or more powerful Series 2 front callipers, but Jaguar won’t be slotting in any unacceptably modern updates.
