Should we talk about the E-Type Roadster in general? No, there is no need as we are talking more about an icon than a classic car in the strict sense. But even the icons have their exceptions: the most appreciated series is certainly the first, that is the one characterized by covered headlights, while the… Read More Headache: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
An icon needs no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type, particularly if a first series, is no exception. Many have been produced and many have survived, especially if we compare them to other sports cars of the same era, yet the quantity of examples still existing has not inflated their charm: the value of this model… Read More Pasadena recluse: 1965 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
You have certainly seen many times of classic cars that got stuck in the middle of a restoration for a variety of reasons (generally missing money and / or time), and this situation is even more common for kit cars. In fact we have often seen body kits that have never even been installed and… Read More Stuck kit: 1963 Austin-Healey Jamaican
The 70s, for the automotive world, were a very “experimental” period in which the foundations were laid for the future of the car: even Jaguar tried to do its best. Let’s not forget that the Jaguar E-Type has been in production for more than ten years and the MK sedan was now too obsolete to… Read More 2 for 1: 1977 Jaguar XJC-12 plus XJ-12
We may not be the only ones who have never seen a four-seater Jaguar XK150, yet here it is in all its strangeness. It is apparently a creation of Jaguar enthusiast Geoffrey Stevens in the 1975 to 1977 period. He was a Jaguar enthusiast and worked as an industrial chemist near Swindon, he and his… Read More Four seater cat: 1960 Jaguar XK150 Shooting Brake ‘Foxbat’
We all know that you can’t have your cake and eat it, so if your craving is for an inexpensive classic spider, there’s work to be done to get there. In this specific case, there is a lot of work to be done: first of all you have to fill in a very long checklist… Read More Southern project: 1960 Triumph TR3 A
There is only one XJ13 built by Jaguar in 1965 in order to participate (and possibly win) in subsequent editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but that never happened. It never happened for a number of reasons: the difficulty of developing the car, combined with the lack of interest of the top management… Read More The cat in the hat: 1965 Jaguar XJ13 Replica by RCR
The make and model of this project need no introduction: even those who are not enthusiastic about classic cars probably know this unmistakable profile. The spider version obviously has the peculiarity of the canvas roof, but our personal opinion is that the coupé profile is difficult to beat even by cars that are worth ten… Read More Aged Burgundy: 1962 Jaguar E-Type FHC
The name of this car designed at the European Ford factory probably won’t communicate much to American readers, but for European – and especially British – enthusiasts, the RS 1600 badge means a lot. In fact, this car was built from 1970 to 1974 in only 1139 specimens: so don’t be surprised not to see… Read More Cosworth power: 1973 Ford Escort RS 1600 MKI
There are few cars, among those ever built, beautiful even if neglected and rusty. This is precisely the case with the E-Type roadster. In addition to being a spider (technically the name given by Jaguar for this version is OTS or Open Two Seater), this car is a true icon of world motoring along with… Read More Carmen red: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
