Need Jaguar E-type Toolkit? Buy One New for RM3900 (pre-tax)!

We all know that certain classic cars, like the Jaguar E-type, are highly sought after. And when a car gets highly sought after, its price shoots up, and collectors start obsessing over getting the most factory-accurate specimens out there. As of late, Jaguar Classic has noticed this with the E-type and its original toolkit and now they’ve decided to capitalise on the situation.

You see out there in the free-market, the original toolkit from the early 1970s can fetch as much as £5,000 or RM26,000! So they’ve taken the liberty of reproducing this toolkit according to the original specification for just £732 or about RM3900 before taxes and duties.

The tools included in the Jaguar Classic E-type Toolkit are:

  • Adjustable spanner
  • Tyre valve key
  • Pliers
  • Tyre pressure gauge
  • Points screwdriver
  • Feeler gauge
  • Three-piece screwdriver
  • Spanner ¾ x 7/8 AF
  • Spanner 9/16 x 5/8 AF
  • Spanner ½ x 7/16 AF
  • Spanner 11/32 x 3/8 AF
  • Box Spanner 7/16 x ½
  • Box Spanner 9/16 x 5/8
  • Box Spanner ¾ x 7/8
  • Sparking plug spanner
  • Tommy bars (one short, one long)
  • Valve timing gauge
  • Grease gun
  • Handbrake adjusting wrench
  • Brake bleed tin and tube

Here’s the press release with more information.

Now, thanks to their unique access to engineering records, Jaguar Classic’s Genuine Parts experts have reproduced the toolkit to authentic specifications. The Jaguar branded tools come in a period-correct leatherette-covered canvas roll, and feature all items needed to carry out routine maintenance on the iconic sports car. The reproduction toolkit is priced from £732 in the UK.
