Having recently purchased this original right hand drive 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1, the new owner has called upon our services to get her up and running and back on the road.

This 1966 model is believed to have left the UK in 1967 to spend its life in California. Being imported back in to the UK a few years ago the car has since been standing with its previous owner.

We have been informed that she has been running so that’s a great sign but we have already discovered that the brakes will certainly need some attention. The brake fluid is rock solid and has crystallised.

Our objective is to get her back on the road and through an MOT. At that stage, her new owner will look to enjoy her over the summer period and look to carry out some work when the weather starts to turn for the winter.
