For the first time in nearly 50 years, Jaguar Classic is putting the original E-Type tool kit back into production. The last time these were available new was when the final Series 2 E-Type was sold in 1971.

Original kits trade hands for as much as £5,000. Now, you can pick up a newly-manufactured set for £732 from Jaguar Classic. The kits are exact reproductions, with the team at Jaguar Classic making use of engineering records and drawings.

As well as being something you can buy on its own, the kit is also offered alongside a ‘reborn’ E-Type restoration.

All the spanners are sized for working on fittings the E-Type uses; the kit allows you do everything from checking your tyre pressures, to adjusting the handbrake, to greasing the hinges. Indeed, you could effectively dismantle your E-Type with these tools alone.

The kit includes the following:

  • Adjustable spanner
  • Tyre valve key
  • Pliers
  • Tyre pressure gauge
  • Points screwdriver
  • Feeler gauge
  • Three-piece screwdriver
  • Spanner ¾ x 7/8 AF
  • Spanner 9/16 x 5/8 AF
  • Spanner ½ x 7/16 AF

“The original E-Type tool kit has become a collector’s item thanks to its rarity and historic appeal”, said Dan Pink, director of Jaguar Classic.

“We’ve had customers across the world contact us about obtaining one, which is why we decided to manufacture the tool kits again to their original specification. It’s the perfect finishing touch for E-Type aficionados.”
