1966 Jaguar E Type FHC (RG)


Restoration log by Dan Mooney




 

 




This exciting E Type proje
ct arrived at the Team CJ Workshops after a short stay in Jay Leno's Garage in Burbank, California! We purchased the car from the estate of the car's only owner, who bought the car new in Burbank and never strayed further than West LA. The original owner was not shy about modifying his beloved Jaguar, so we think he would approve of the upgrades we have planned for the car!

Specification (briefly) for this project, as follows:

Total restoration with a full range of Team CJ performance and reliability upgrades, including a 4.7L Stage Two engine, fuel injection, five speed and upgraded cooling, ignition, suspension and brakes. The car will be finished in Opalescent Dark Green with dark tan Suffolk & Turley hides and will ride on our exclusive Team CJ Borrani wire wheels.
