Brabham drove the car at the launch of the Everyman Motorsport
Classic Car Experience at Brands Hatch and from this time. the car
has been cared for by the Jaguar specialist. John Arnold of Revival
Motorsport. John is regarded as one of the best Jaguar
specialists in the UK today. His ability to build reliable fast
road/race cars with exceptional handling is renown within
knowledgeable circles. Within the past two years. John has
transformed and rebuilt the car. into a lightweight E-Type with
Series I features.

fuel filler and re-modelling the rear end. Mechanically. the
specification further impresses and a short résumé includes; the

overs at the rear and billet aluminium steering arms attached to a
new steering rack. The steering column has been overhauled top and
bottom which is a job often neglected. The brakes are four pot
callipers with vented discs to the front with twin pot callipers to
the rear.

On the inside this E-Type does not disappoint; the seats are alloy
