Our latest Clayton Classics
JAGUAR E TYPE RESTORATION PROJECT:
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.
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.
We’re bringing this E Type straight into the 21st Century with a fully upgraded air conditioning system.
No more bumps in the road… full modern suspension for the ultimate comfort on modern roadways.
We’re ensuring all safety standards are up to specification on this E Type, with rigorous checks and routine optimisation.
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.
A hint of modern glamour in a classic vehicle with a more energy-efficient, stylish interior lighting solution.
It’s all in the finishing touches, which is why we’ll be installing fantastic interior leather trim from award-winning sources.
