Jaguar’s Classic division is reintroducing the original E-type toolkit for the first time in nearly 50 years. Presented in a period-looking leatherette-covered canvas roll, the tools include a tyre pressure gauge and a grease gun. Take a look at the image below.
The E-type toolkit is priced at £732 ($948) and can be purchased directly from the recently-launched JLR Classic online parts shop. The toolkit is also offered as an option for E-type Reborn restoration customers. The E-type Reborn from Jaguar Classic is an opportunity to buy a fully restored E-type directly from the original manufacturer.
While the new toolkit looks well made with great attention to detail, the original toolkits are highly collectible rarities, apparently fetching as much as £5,000.
The original E-type toolkit has become a collector’s item thanks to its rarity and historic appeal. We’ve had customers across the world contact us about obtaining one, which is why we decided to manufacture the toolkits again to their original specification. It’s the perfect finishing touch for E-type aficionados. – Dan Pink, Director, Jaguar Classic
