Hello all,

I'm both new to the forum and to E Type ownership having bought a 1964 series 1 3.8 a week or so ago. I've been slowly looking over the car finding any little faults or things I'd like to put right and noticed on the rear hatch I only have the Jaguar script but not the E Type or 3.8. Did this vary with year and model and mine is in fact correct or should I be looking round for the additional 'badges'

Cheers Dale

3.8 cars ONLY have the word Jaguar on the boot lid. Don't be tempted to drill holes for anything else...let's face it anyone following will know it's an e type :bigrin: :bigrin: I
With the 4.2 they added the word E type and 4.2....really these details are the only external differences between the 3.8 and 4.2 litre versions...and welcome to the forum and to e type ownership :bigrin:

Actually the resonators are also different on the 3.8 and 4.2 cars.

Trivia: The Factory put the E-Type badge above the Jaguar one and as a result it has become one of the few cars in history known first by the model name with the manufacturers name as a suffix; it will always be an "E-Type Jaguar".

Out of interest, Dale, as a new owner of a running car, could you give us your first impressions of whatever driving you’ve done so far? Most of us have been around Es fkr a while and it’s nice to hear newcomer’s first driving impressions.

None of those are really eligible, in the case of the Ford there was no model badge - 'Ford Model T' seems to be the generally accepted name - and, as Pete says, the Jaguars were un-badged. In the case of the E-Type 4.2 it was Jaguar themselves who named it big and proud:

Of course Jaguar realised the mis-step and put things right with the V12, but it was too late:

Hello Peter,
I haven't driven any great miles as yet, took A while to get paperwork to 'tax' the car. Sunday gone (23rd) was, in fact, my first drive out. I didn't go far (about 20 miles) so I'm still getting used to the driving position and road holding. I do find it slightly cramped under the steering wheel and the pedal position a bit off-center but I'm sure Ill get used to all these quirks. I have a list of jobs to do on the car before I 'drive it in anger' and being the wrong end of the year, most probably wont get too much driving completed 2018 so looking foreward to spring 2019

Ah yes, but absence of evidence is not the same as evidence of absence...... :wink:

I always took the view that Jaguar decided....why bother with an 'E type' badge....anyone in 1961 who did not know it was an e type had either lived on Mars or had zero interest in cars...every paper of the time plastered the car all over their front page and as it looked completely unlike anything else.....save 2 shillings and not bother with an extra model badge....Mr Whittaker would approve :bigrin:
