About Us

 

Since its founding in 2004, the E-type Club has gone from strength to strength and we now have members in over 50 countries..

What makes the E-type Club different is that we focus 100% on E-types.

E-types in the News

 

A Tangerine righthand-drive 1970 E-type once owned by the Daily
Express and Evening Standard cartoonist ‘JAK’ sold for £49,500
at H&H Classics’ sale at IWM Duxford on 26 May.


It was manufactured on 23 April 1970, dispatched to dealers Henlys of London a few days later, and supplied new to the Daily Express newspaper. First registered as JAK 449 on 20 May, it is understood to have been the company car of Raymond Jackson – better known by his pen name of JAK. JAK claimed he was the first one to break an unwritten rule not to lampoon the Royal Family – but it was said ...

Manual or automatic?

(Christian C Welter)

For our everyday car, most of us have chosen an automatic transmission as the way to go in actual traffic. However, when it comes to classic cars the preference often goes to manual gearboxes. They achieve a higher price compared to the same models with automatic
transmission. Is this disinterest for automatic transmissions justified? Owning two E-type Series IIIs, one with a manual and the other one
with an automatic transmission

Why buy an E-type?

 

Apart from the emotional aspects, there are a number of hard-headed reasons to buy an E-type. ​

 

Reliability – there is no point in owning a classic car unless you can use and enjoy it, and do so with confidence that it is not going to let you down. All the E-type’s mechanical components were used in the higher volume saloon

XKEDATA.com is a project to help people find information about a particular car or series of cars by serial number.

This site welcomes participation from anyone interested in these cars. We aren't experts, but there is also no exclusivity to the data hosted here. You don't have to be a member to list a car.

If a site user sees a car with such-and-such car number in a classified ad that's what will be entered. It's all that's known at that point. But over time, hopefully more information will be added, corrections will be made, and at the end of the day we'll know a bit more about a particular car than we would otherwise.

200 issues! What an achievement. A timely opportunity to acknowledge our ace magazine team – James Page as Editor, Jen Barker as Assistant Editor and Designer, and Rob Schulp and Sue Farrow who pull together the advertising sales.
For a relatively small club, I think they compile a cracking publication of which they should be very proud. We certainly are. Long may it last!
