E-Type Series 2 Coupé 2+2, Part 1
This is the story of our E-Type 2+2 Coupé which we bought in the US and which is being restored in our workshop in Hamburg. We’ll be getting down to the nuts and bolts with this one. The entire restoration project will be published here on Grand Retro in about 10 different articles, beginning today with an examination and inventory.
The disassembled car arrived at the workshop in the still warm light of the early autumn sun. In the meantime the paint job has been finished and we can show a sneak preview picture of the fully painted body.
But back to autumn first. We found the condition of the body not too bad. Unsurprisingly some panels will have to be replaced and some sheet metal will have to be added, especially at the wheel arches and the door sills. The underbody panel we decided to replace completely.
Looking forward to your comments …
