Jaguar Classic is offering the original toolset of the legendary E-Type in an authentic new edition and you can buy it for the price of £732.00 online.
It’s taken almost 50 years but Jaguar Classic has decided to offer the “Toolkit”, which is part of the E-Type Series 1 and Series 2 standard equipment, expiring in 1971 with the production of the last Series 2.
A sniff under £800 may sound expensive but highly sought-after rarities do carry a premium, with collectors often shelling out more than £5,000 for similar collectable items.
Thanks to direct access to historical archives, Jaguar Classic Parts experts have carefully reconstructed the toolset to original specifications. The set comes enveloped in a durable faux leather case and contains all the tools and gauges necessary to expertly carry out routine maintenance on the iconic E-type Jaguar.
Director Jaguar Classic, Dan Pink said:
“The original E-Type toolset has become a coveted collector’s item due to its rarity and historic charm, and after customers from around the world asked for a copy, they decided to reissue tool kits to their original specifications all E-Type lovers.”

The tool kit is also available as an option to customers of a Reborn Restoration of the E-Type. With the Reborn models, Jaguar Classic offers the unique opportunity to acquire a completely restored E-Type directly and virtually as new from the manufacturer of the original model.
Each E-Type Reborn is based on a donor vehicle carefully selected by the Jaguar Classic experts. Thanks to access to production data, original drawings and the decades of experience of the Classic Team, an exact “rebirth” according to the factory specifications of the 1960s is guaranteed. E-Type Reborn copies were awarded Concours Awards in Europe and North America in 2019; Jaguar Classic parts help to maximize the quality, longevity and collector value of the vehicles.
