E-Type Practical Classics Challenge & 2019 Classic Show Guide

Practical Classics Challenge
Practical Classics Challenge - E-type Restoration on Live Stage

It’s a big challenge but this year’s Practical Classics team reckon they can restore a 1974 Jaguar E-type Roadster Series III on the Live Stage at the forthcoming Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show.

The big cat in question is owned by Andy Waters who runs CBR Classic Restorations, a family run business that has been operating in the Cannock area for over 35 Years.

Busy with everything and everyone else’s projects including some important charitable work, the herculean task of restoring his own very own Jaguar has never actually made it to the front of the ever-growing restoration queue – until now.

Andy said:
“I’ve owned the car for twelve long years, ever since it was rescued in the USA after being burnt out. As the CBR restoration business has grown, the car has sat on a dolly for the last however many years gathering layers of dust.

“Body and paintwork will have been carried out before the car enters the Live Stage on Friday but there is still lots of complex and difficult work to carry out before the task is completed.

“The V12 engine has been stripped and reassembled with new 9:1 pistons, liners, polished crankshaft, refurbished cylinder heads and a whole host of soda blasted, lacquered and painted parts all waiting to be added to the project.

“There was a huge number of intricate parts including clocks, lights, door handles, body fittings and fixtures that needed sourcing before the task was due to be started this Friday at the NEC.”
