Jaguar E Type Series 1, 2 and 3 Specifications

Updated on June 19, 2010

A valuable Jaguar E type is the one that is truly original as the day it rolled off the assembly line.

Through the life span of an E type, it can change many times hands and each and every time its new owner gets its hands on it, either the E Type is renewed with passion and supplied with original parts to get it as close as its first day off the line or due to forced grim financial situation or even personalized and un-matching taste the car is unconsciously adultered in so many ways un-imaginable.

Nowadays the Jaguar E Type enthusiast knows that the more original parts this iconic car is fitted the valuable it will be and therefore a greater return on the investment. Also with the much and confusing information available on E Types it could be hard to track the right part specifically for your E Type.
