MGTF: Test Fit 1

With many of the pieces now in primer, we are test fitting the major components with the new Hutson body tub. Hutson does not supply the firewall, so we had the peice carefully blasted and subsequently painted in white epoxy primer.

So far the fit looks spot on, but we have to assemble the radiator and hood to finalize the build.

Included is a shot of the chassis which reads TF5013. The car will be returned to its original color of Birch Grey with red interior.

1969 Jaguar E-Type FHC: Teardown

We just started assisting a client with this gorgeous 1969 S2 FHC.

Having never been disassembled or crashed, this is an ideal candidate to restore. The entire car retains its original fit and finishes throughout except for some new seat covers.

This is the first year of the Series II E-type which adopted a completely different light scheme and the Federal Stromberg carburetors as well as detail differences throughout.

More to come!
