Welcome to the Jaguar E-type Club

Grey Jaguar E-type

The only international club dedicated purely to Jaguar E-types

E-type Club Weekend – STOP PRESS

We are delighted to announce that E-type Club patron and former Director of Design at Jaguar, Ian Callum OBE, will be joining us as a special guest for our Club Day on August 12.


Thank you to everyone who completed our membership survey. It has been really interesting to read the results, and the additional comments – along with the various responses to Philip’s editorial – have proved particularly useful.  A more detailed breakdown will be available shortly in the Members' Area.

As a direct result of the survey, we’ve made some changes to the website Technical Library – we hope this will make accessing technical articles a lot easier. Do take a look and see what you think.


We are very sad to say goodbye to one of our longest serving Reps, Nick Bromfield who, along with his wife Katrina, has been a great friend and support to the E-type Club. Many thanks indeed, Nick, from all of us here at HQ.

Latest Magazine

April sees us taking a good look at the oft' thorny issue of electric conversions and continues the diary of a novice E-type owner. On the event front we follow the photo diary of an intrepid group from the BeNeLux region to last year's Club Weekend and take an elegant stroll around the Hampton Court Concours.


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. Learn more below.

The BeNeLux connection

After a few years not being able to join the
E-type weekend, my wife Mariska and I were excited about the trip. My car, E-type S1.5 [1E79019] was ready after a thorough check and new wiring-loom installation by Minke and Patrick at Avelingen Restorations. We had ample space for our stuff, because the E-type 2+2 has this clever expandable boot!

From Limburg, Netherlands we drove through Belgium, then into France to Calais, through the Chunnel to Folkestone, and via the M25 and M40 to Worcestershire...

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...​

US-specification 1967 4.2-litre Roadster sells for $114,800

At the Sotheby’s Phoenix, Arizona, auction on 26 January, a very late Series 1 (‘Series 1.25’) E-type Roadster with claimed original mileage of under 10,000 miles was sold. Equipped with uncovered headlights while maintaining the early E-type features of triple SU carburettors, toggle dash controls and above-the-bumper parking lights and tail-lights, the car was accompanied by an original window sticker, dealer invoice, owner’s manual and service documents dating from new. The car was also offered with a JDHT Certificate, tool roll, jack with bag and Thor knock-off hammer. The car’s first owner was Dean Edmunds, a physicist whose name...


In 1947 Walter E Sturgess & Sons, which had been founded as a bicycle sales and repair shop in Leicester in 1897, acquired a Jaguar franchise, adding Land Rover a year later. A member of the third generation of the family, Robin, joined in 1957 and raced a C-type for fun. When the E-type was launched, Jaguar allocated Roadster chassis number 12 as the Sturgess demonstrator.


That was the role 2 BBC, as it was originally registered, performed during the week. And at the weekend, Robin went racing. In fact, I discovered a while ago, that 850012 was the most active competition E-type in that first year. I was lucky enough to acquire the car (for £600) in 1977. Soon aft er, I telephoned Robin who told me he recognised the 848 CRY registration they put on the car when…

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 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.
