An idea thought up by Craig; what to do with a 1967 Jaguar E-Type body shell that is a little different to the norm.

Tucked up in our yard we had a very sorry looking 1967 Jaguar E-Type body shell. The shell comes with no V5 or registration documentation so the costly exercise of a full restoration will automatically be devalued because of this fact.

In the past we have seen tables made from engine blocks, we’ve seen desks made from bonnets but to date I have not come across a beautifully produced sofa, complete with an opening drinks cabinet made from an original Jaguar E-Type.

We are only in the design stages of the currently we have some fantastic ideas of what we could envisage the end result being and who would like such a wonderful creation…certainly a one off!

Firstly, and reluctantly Tommy has chopped our E-Type in half, keeping the rear half along with the boot lid and removing the front section. “At this stage I feel the guys are not fully on board with my idea but I’m sure I can convince them”
