Jaguar E Type Restoration

Updated on March 6, 2011

Since I have been writing a few hubs on my favorite Jaguar classic car, I´ve decided to compile a list of related information on the Jaguar E Type, (better known in the States as the Jaguar XKE) in the same hub, jaguar e type restoration index, for easy reference.

I will always be writing passionately on the E Type and adding on more relevant and important Jaguar E Type related information on this hub as I go along. The information gathered here will help anyone planning to buy an E Type Jag or who already has one or more (you lucky E Type owner) and needs more relevant information when planning on a Jaguar E Type restoration.
