Collector's Originality Guide: Jaguar E-Type is the definitive resource for all E-Type collectors. Noted Jaguar aficionado Philip Porter draws on factory records, parts books, catalogs, and service bulletins--as well as the British Jaguar collector community--to compile all the information needed to determine what constitutes an authentic Jaguar E-Type. More than 160 color photos show every inch of twelve carefully selected Jaguar examples--all of which are in either remarkably original condition or restored with fastidious attention to detail. From early 3.8-liter roadster to late 5.3-liter V-12 roadster, the permutations of E-Type specification and body style are covered in superb detail.

From the Back Cover:

Few cars have made a greater impression on the public than the Jaguar E-type. Everyone recognizes the E-type as one of the most beautiful, exciting and charismatic sports cars ever made. It was revealed in 1961 to an astounded motoring world as a dream car, a designer’s vision of the future. It was capable of 150 mph at a time when the typical family car could barely manage half that speed. No wonder that the E-type quickly became a legend in its own lifetime.

Collector’s Originality Guide: Jaguar E-Type draws from factory records and the accumulated knowledge of respected Jaguar restorers, author Philip Porter and photographer Tim Andrew, to provide an expert resource for restoring a Jaguar E-type to its original spec. More than 160 photographs cover every inch of 12 specially selected cars in either remarkable original condition or restored with careful attention to originality. This is the definitive guide for any E-type owner, restorer, or enthusiast.
