It is poised to be an award-winning car, ready to captivate judges and enthusiasts alike.

 

Exterior and Bodywork

Adorned in Opalescent Maroon, this E-Type's flawless exterior is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship of Concours-winning Coachwerks of Victoria, BC, ensuring it retains its iconic silhouette and flawless finish. Complementing its timeless design, the running gear has been expertly handled by Owen Automotive and Richard Michael Owen, providing a robust foundation for exhilarating drives. The sophisticated paint and bodywork encapsulate the essence of this British classic, ready to turn heads wherever it goes.

 

Engine and Performance

Under the bonnet lies a masterpiece of engineering. The engine features a 4.7-liter conversion, rebuilt with precision by Owen Automotive's Mike Owen. Machine work by Mid Island Machine includes boring the cylinder block for JE pistons, aligning and resurfacing the block. Key components include an RBR Bullet Crankshaft by Arrow Precision, RBR Forged Pistons by JE, and high-flow oil systems. This E-Type delivers unparalleled performance with a rebuilt belt tensioner, Fluidampr Harmonic Balancer, and modern ignition system featuring a Lucas DLB105 Sports Coil and 123 Ignition Tune+.

 

Transmission and Differential

The driving experience is further enhanced by a JAG407 Jaguar-Land Rover Classic 5-Speed transmission, paired with a Borg & Beck 9.5-inch diaphragm clutch. The differential, meticulously rebuilt by Tom Munro, retains the original 3.54:1 crown and pinion, ensuring smooth power delivery and reliability. Timken bearings and a DWR aluminum cover add to the durability and efficiency of the drivetrain.

Suspension and Brakes Handling and ride quality are uncompromised, thanks to the rebuilt front and rear suspensions by Owen Automotive. The front suspension boasts new stub axles, Harvey Bailey ARB, Fosseway Performance calipers and vented rotors, and KONI adjustable shock absorbers. The rear suspension features EBC brake pads, Harvey Bailey ARB kit, and Fosseway Performance calipers with remote-mounted handbrake systems. These upgrades provide exceptional control and stopping power.

Step inside to experience luxury and craftsmanship. Geoff Chrysler from Rightway Heritage Trim has upholstered the interior, with a leather dash top by Kevin from Styles Upholstery. The cockpit includes a rebuilt switchgear, a new 15-inch steering wheel, and a classic JLR horn push. Modern touches such as LED gauge lights, a transistorized clock, and a Jaguar Classic Infotainment System with Polk speakers ensure comfort and convenience. Safety is paramount with Shield 3-Point belts and high-quality upholstery materials.

 

Cooling and Heating Systems

Efficient cooling is achieved with an SNG thick core aluminum radiator, original fan shroud, new OEM fan blades, and a complete Clayton heater matrix assembly. Upgraded components such as the SPAL heater fan resistor and stainless steel heater transfer pipes ensure optimal temperature control.

 

Exhaust and Fuel Systems

The exhaust system by Classicfabs, featuring long manifold pipes and Series 2 "Horned" tailpipes, delivers a powerful yet refined exhaust note. Automec copper/nickel lines for brakes, clutch, and fuel enhance reliability and performance.

 

Chassis and Wheels

The chassis features triple plate chrome work by Electroshine, providing a dazzling finish to the front and rear bumper assemblies, headlamp peaks, door handles, and more.
