Jaguar E-Type Toolkit

The Jaguar E-Type is one of the best-known sports cars in the world and is celebrated time and again for its iconic design. The first copies rolled off the assembly line in 1961 after the car caused a sensation at the Geneva Motor Show. Today, only a few collectors still have an E-Type as first owners. Of course, there are often no extras that belonged to the respective cars ex works still with them now. A good example pf this is the toolkit, which usually travels with the car in the trunk, but some owners also like to remove it from the car and leave it in the garage, where it might still be in the case of a possible resale. Original toolkits of the E-Type Series 1 and 2 in complete condition now bring up to 5,000 € on parts markets and are of course sought-after spare parts.
