Paintwork and shell of disassembled Jaguar E Type

Our latest Clayton Classics


Our mechanics and engineers have been hard at work on our latest project in the Clayton Classics workshop, so let us tell you a little more about what we’ve been up to.

So far this Series 1, 3.8 FHC has been stripped back to bare metal, painstakingly repainted and polished, and is due to be completed later this year.

Here’s what the restoration project has in store.

Full Respray

A full paint respray from bare metal ensures this E Type will look as good, if not better, than the day it first left the factory.

Air Conditioning

We’re bringing this E Type straight into the 21st Century with a fully upgraded air conditioning system.

Suspension upgrades

No more bumps in the road… full modern suspension for the ultimate comfort on modern roadways.

Brake system upgrade

We’re ensuring all safety standards are up to specification on this E Type, with rigorous checks and routine optimisation.

5 speed gearbox

With modern conveniences that don’t hamper the original charm, a brand new 5 speed gearbox will bring the finest transmission to this classic car.

LED Interior lighting system

A hint of modern glamour in a classic vehicle with a more energy-efficient, stylish interior lighting solution.

Award winning interior trim

It’s all in the finishing touches, which is why we’ll be installing fantastic interior leather trim from award-winning sources.
