Jaguar E-Type and Porsche 912
Restored Exhibition | Limited edition of 20 prints
A set of classic car restoration images which featured in Classic Cars and Classic Ford magazines. All cars were shot as found, where they had been lovingly restored, stored for security or awaited restoration, some untouched for decades.
Often heralded as the most beautiful car ever made, this dusty, rusty Series 1 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Roadster was still with its original owner. He purchased it new in 1965, and in 2013 sent it to Yorkshire Classic & Sports Cars for restoration. In its early years, it was primarily used for towing trailers of cattle and sheep to trade fairs – if tractors got stuck in muddy fields, then the unlikely scene of this elegant E-Type pulling them out was common. It was barn-stored in 1998 where it was mainly used as a bed by sheep.
The 1967 Porsche 912 was originally in Polo Red with tan leather, and was first registered in Motherwell. It was a well-spec’d example with a rare five-speed gearbox and 911-style dials. It was also in the care of YC&SC, who carried out a complete restoration.
