E-Type in 60s or 70s UK TV show with famous singer

Does anyone know of a scene from a variety or performance show where I think they had an E-Type (think it was an OTS) together with another classic sports cars (can't remember what, may've been an Healey 3000)?. In the short scene, there is a female 60s popstar (could've been Sandie Shaw or another ...

Yes it is certainly a JPR Wildcat. The door handles are the same used on the Wildcat, as well as the front indicator lights being below the bumpers rather than above. I think this is currently for sale here: http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C666164 Yes it's not in a good state, but there are a lot...

E Type OTS in Shell Lubysil advert

Came across a 60s advert for Shell Lubysil which shows a red S1 or 1.5 roadster. What caught my eye though was the odd looking hardtop it had, noticeably different than the original factory hardtop. I do know there was an "alternative" E Type hardtop that was produced, so maybe that's what it is. ww...

Which E-Type/driver drove to Geneva in March 61?

I read an article recently that mentions the trip to Geneva to enveil the first E-Type to the press. According to the article it says: "Berry drove virtually flat out through the night, arriving in Geneva, where he drove to the local Jaguar distributor for a 20-minute wash and polish, before heading...

Red S1 OTS spotted in "The Enfield Haunting" trail

Watching the ads tonight on TV and spotted a brief shot of a red S1 OTS in a trailer for Sky Livings "The Enfield Haunting", based on the true story of the Enfield Poltergeist. I am quite familiar with this famous case, but wasn't aware of anyone involved in the case having owned an E Type. I was su...

Period E-Type factory clip in last nights Classic Car Show

Did anyone see last nights channel 5 The Classic Car Show episode presented by Quentin Willson on the E-Type?. When they feature the E (right at the start) they briefly showed a few shots from an old b&w E-Type film (presumably at Browns Lane) with 9600 HP. Alot of the shots from this I've seen many...

As luck would have it, I found what it was via a TV forum. It was called Driving Ambition, and there is a white OTS series 1.5 featured, owned by the garage owner (played by the late Mark Kingston).



E-Type is seen at the 46:22 in the above video.

It's not that, I believe that film is called Car Trouble. This was a British TV series; not sure how long it ran for, but may've only lasted a few episodes. It definitely involved two women who meet a garage owner who learns them how to drive, and later, he shows them his E-Type.

Yes, I agree replicas are only valid if the real McCoys are simply too out of reach for the majority, ie the C and D-Types. However, people are forgetting that E-Types are pretty much in the same boat (not exactly millions, but hey, who has 80 grand? noone I know). I think most people I know would b...

You certainly can't argue with that I suppose. If the detail and work is of an excellent standard then I can understand, but it's a little steep in my view. Yes, if this was a genunine, and being a roadster too, the price would be somwhere in the 80-150 grand region. Challenger's seem to get all the...

E-Type S1 replica by Challenger for sale for how much?

Just came across an ad for a series 1 replica by Challenger (the company which once made perfect kits of the S1 E-Type) and I almost fell off my chair at how much they're wanting for it...wait for it, ?49,995 :shock: That's what you would pay for a real one. Most Challenger's I've seen for sale don'...

Very detailed mode indeed. I have heard of this model before, and it's one of the best. However, no matter how scaled it is they can never quite get the front of the car to look spot on (the front tends to look a little quirky or characturish for one of a better description), ie the shape of the hea...

I still can't make my mind up whether it's either a FHC or a 2+2. From the beginning shot it looks like a FHC, but when you see it further on (with the back level on) the rear looks a little higher as would be noticed with the 2+2l. I love how it just breezes past the bus like the driver was saying ...

Bygone Bolton video - red S1 FHC spotted

Was watching a vintage video of Bolton, Lancs today called Bolton (bygone times), and was pleasantly surprised to see in one brief shot an E-Type series 1 that is seen heading down a busy road in the town centre. The E-Type is seen behind a red bus and, after a short distance, it then accelerates pa...

Hard to determine where those photos came from, especially the factory shots, but looks like they are poor copies that have been taken from a website somewhere rather than directly scanned from a book. You'd think those photos would be on the Jaguar Heritage site somewhere, or on some other Jaguar s...

These can't be found anywhere on the Jaguar Heritage website, and I haven't seen these shots before on the internet. The...

It is set in a posh country house, and a chap drives up to it and to the garage showing it off with another character admiring it. Later on, said E-Type is dowsed in...
