On the back of the recent launch of the E-Type Jaguar Restoration Manual, CMC went on a photoshoot around East Sussex with E-Type Chassis 60, Chris Anderson -owner of the car- and Classic Jaguar Magazine. Chassis 60 was the subject of the manual which takes readers through the full nut-and-bolt restoration of this very early model. Skilled mechanics and technicians CMC have written each chapter, giving a first-hand account of the process with 224 pages and 700 photos showing the level of detail that goes into CMC's award-winning restorations. The car was the sixtieth E-Type to leave Jaguar’s production line in 1961; not only a very early 'flat floor' 3.8 ...

CMC restored and maintained cars were seen at the inaugural City of London Concours. Set in the gardens of the Honourable Artillery Company in the heart of London, the event provided a display of some of the world’s finest cars.

Chris Anderson had bo ...
