Complete Your E-Type Project With Jag’s New Original Toolkit

Jaguar E-Type aficionados know how hard it is to come across a complete original toolkit for a decent price. These normally fetch up to £5,000 ($6,457/€5,789), but you won’t have to pay that much if you go for the company’s new parts.

Reproduced for the first time in almost 50 years, the toolkit is an original accessory that can be bought from Jaguar Land Rover’s Classic online parts shop here. It costs from £732 ($945/€848) in the United Kingdom, comes in a leatherette-covered canvas roll, like the classic one, and features all items needed to carry out the routine maintenance.

“The original E-Type toolkit has become a collector’s item thanks to its rarity and historic appeal”, said the Director of Jaguar Classic, Dan Pink. “We’ve had customers across the world contact us about obtaining one, which is why we decided to manufacture the toolkits again to their original specification. It’s the perfect finishing touch for E-Type aficionados.”

Joining the more than 50,000 parts and accessories available at JLR Classic, the toolkit is also offered as an option for the E-Type Reborn. The restoration process allows those with a soft spot for the E-Type (and deep pockets) to buy the highly collectable classic sports car straight from the manufacturer. These cars are fully restored to the original factory specification, and the whole process starts with the base vehicle being sourced by Jaguar Classic’s E-Type experts.

The new toolkit includes:

Adjustable spanner
Tyre valve key
Pliers
Tyre pressure gauge
Points screwdriver
Feeler gauge
Three-piece screwdriver
Spanner ¾ x 7/8 AF
Spanner 9/16 x 5/8 AF
Spanner ½ x 7/16 AF
Spanner 11/32 x 3/8 AF
Box Spanner 7/16 x ½
