This Jaguar E-type Series 3 V12 has been in storage for 13 years. The owner now has a new garage and room to bring it home so we set about getting it road worthy once more. Although the condition of the car has been maintained over this time there are a lot of items that will degrade through lack of use. Rubber components like coolant hoses needed replacing and the brakes required some attention. The engine needed a good service along with lots of little jobs to get everything working as it should. This afternoon we will deliver the car home once and for all.
1988 Lotus Esprit recommission
This Lotus Esprit had sat in a garage for years before its current owner rescued it. The car had seized rear brakes and a few other small issues but was overall very good. With the rear brakes sorted and the engine up and running the car is now back on the road.
Triumph TR4A recommissioned
This Triumph TR4A has been stood in a garage for the last 20 years. We’ve been through the whole car and refurbished the mechanical parts like brakes and suspension. The engine was good but the carburettors were full of detritus. The whole fuel system was replaced and the carbs rebuilt. We converted the car to an alternator, electronic ignition and an electronic Facet fuel pump. The paint work has been machined polished and it has come out very well. Really happy to see another classic back on the road.
