Welcome to the Jaguar E-type Club

Grey Jaguar E-type

The only international club dedicated purely to Jaguar E-types

Glen-2-web.jpg

California Rep Glen Barker, is currently in full-on recce mode for his joint E-type and XK Club trip to the High Sierras next October. I’ve asked him to send some pictures as he goes along, to pique members’ interest. You can see some in the Members' Area, and I think you’ll agree he’s 

doing us proud – HQ interest is well and truly piqued! There are some more photos in the Reps’ section. Thank you, Glen.


The member survey I mentioned last month will be coming to you shortly, and we look forward to seeing the results – please do take the time to respond, as this will help us make sure the Club is the best it can possibly be.

Jaguar Heritage Certificates

Since 1931, details of every SS and Jaguar vehicle that has been produced have been recorded. Initially in a bound ledger which was completed as a vehicle made its way down the production line; from the 1980s a computerised system to recording the same details.

Silverstone Auctions offers an ex-Stirling Moss and Win Percy 1965 Series 1 E-type Roadster ‘Semi-lightweight’ for sale

Silverstone_rec11794-1_1.jpg

The car was offered in a sale at the NEC Classic Motor Show on 12 November, with a guide price of £120,000–£160,000.

 

Chassis 1E11338, registered EOL 584C, with 13,000 miles recorded on the odometer, was converted to semi-lightweight specification by XK and E-type specialist, the late Jeremy Broad, who followed the specification of the two special-order Semi-lightweight cars constructed by Jaguar Works in 1964.

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. 

​There are several excellent Jaguar clubs but they have to cover a vast range of cars and interests from pre-war through to the current range. Naturally, they cannot concentrate on just one model...​

So, the F-type is ceasing production soon. Will this be the last Jaguar sports car? I fear it will be,  which would be tragic in my opinion.


The reason given is that JLR are changing over to electric vehicles. Personally, I think the world has gone mad. I am no great expert on this subject but, certainly in the UK, we do not have, and will not have in the foreseeable future, the charging infrastructure.


The cost of electricity is exploding. The batteries, as I understand it, cannot be recycled, and are extremely heavy, and weight equals inefficiency. What happens when you have a five-hour hold-up on the motorway/freeway/autoroute/autobahn and 100 cars run out of juice? What happens in Third World countries... And so on.


Interestingly, a new report entitled ‘Quantifying Classic Car Emissions 2022’ suggests that based on CO2 emissions, driving 1,200 miles in a classic car over a year has little more impact on the environment than drinking three cups of coffee a day.

Jonathan Mitchell reports on the Suffolk Discovery Tour, run in July 2022

With a rich history, picturesque villages and more than 50 miles of glorious coastline, it was not a surprise that Backwater Tours decided to bring Club members back to Suffolk for the second year in succession. The tour was based at Hintlesham Hall, a magnificent hotel nestling in 175 acres of rolling Suffolk countryside, just a few miles from Ipswich. The Hall has an impressive
history, having originally been built in 1448.


Owned successively by the Timperleys and the Powys family, the building has retained much of its Elizabethan-house structure, fronted by a Georgian façade. In 1971, the famous chef Robert Carrier purchased the hotel and ran it as a restaurant and 

cookery school. While ownership has moved on since Carrier’s death, the current head chef has worked hard to maintain the
highest standards. He has recently restored Carrier’s old herb garden and vegetable patch.;..

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...

XKE Data viewed on laptop

XKE Data

 

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.
