Refreshing a V12 E-type – Series 3, E-type

Our client brought us his recently purchased E-type, the car was in a fair condition – but the paintwork needed refreshing, some of the chrome was pitted and the interior had been replaced with a non-original colour combination.


We carried out a full bare metal strip down and perhaps inevitably found previously hidden areas of rust which we repaired. We resprayed the car in the original white colour. Exterior bright work was re-chromed or re-polished and a mixture of new and vintage parts were installed.


The seats were re-trimmed in the correct colour leather hide and a complete handmade carpet set was installed. New door cards were installed along with vinyl trimming and a new hood.

Engine and ancillaries

The engine and engine bay were carefully detailed to original factory finishes.


The V12 roadster is now in excellent all-round condition and has increased in value.
