There’s another new event added to the calendar – the Oulton Park Gold Cup on the weekend of 26-28 July. Discounted tickets have been arranged for Club members and Mike Bielinski, XK Club Representative for the north-west, has kindly agreed to coordinate the attendee list, so please let him know once you’ve booked.


The E-type is being celebrated at the London Concours at the Honourable Artillery Company in the City of London on Wednesday 5 June, and Club members have been
invited to take part. Booking details can be found on the website event calendar.


Steve Beeson has asked me to pass on that we are now fully booked for the Hampton Court Concours of Elegance. If you would like to go on the waiting list, please let him know. I’m sure you’ll join us in saying a huge ‘thank you’ to Steve for all his work on
organising Club attendance.

Why not pay a visit to the E-type Forum?

 

You'll find an active community of E-type owners and enthusiasts discussing technical issues, asking for advice, sharing news and chatting about all things E-type.

 

The Forum is kindly hosted by E-Type UK (in conjunction with the Jaguar E-type Club).

Pedal-car auction drama
German Club member Walter Huppmann recounts the story of how he bought an E-type for his grandson with a little help from the Club

After being a proud grandfather since the end of November 2023, the idea of looking for a stylish means of transport for my grandson came to my mind. Specifically, I was thinking of a pedal car – he is too young to drive a real car – ideally with the look of an E-type. I wanted to get my grandson excited about this beautiful style icon at a very early stage and thus lay the foundations for what I hope will be a passion for classic vehicles in the future...

...Much to my surprise, I finally found what I was looking for on eBay in February 2024 – a ‘junior’ E-type OOS (Open One-Seater), an early Tri-ang Series 1, was offered for sale...

...it was with great joy that I immediately contacted Cip from P&K Thornton Restorations. Cip was immediately enthusiastic about my idea of buying an E-type for my grandson, and with that in mind he immediately offered me his support by saying that if I could actually buy the pedal car at auction, he would take care of the collection and the subsequent interim storage. Excited and relieved by Cip’s commitment to help, I thought I could look forward to bidding towards the end of the auction the next day with peace of mind...


...Sadly not! My assessment of the situation turned out to be over-optimistic,..

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...​

Bonhams sells two E-types at Amelia Island Auction

At the Fernandina Beach Golf Club Amelia Island Auction, Florida, on 29 February, two E-types were sold.


The first, a 1965 Series 1 3.8-litre FHC, was recently discovered following 46 years of continuous ownership, and was sold as a
prime candidate for refurbishment, or to preserve and enjoy following mechanical renovation.


The car was sold fitted with its original Blaupunkt radio and steering wheel, and the Heritage Certificate confirms the original matching numbers cylinder block and heads. The engine turned by hand, but required servicing to become roadworthy. The car sold for US$56,000.

The second car was a 1968 Series 1½ 4.2-litre OTS, which
left Browns Lane...

Why buy an E-type?

people-standing-around-jaguar-etypes-parked-in-town-square.jpg

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

 

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.
