The Lindner Nocker E-Type Jaguar crashed at the Montlhery circuit in 1964 and was so badly damagd that a complete restoration of the car was thought to be impossible. Proving that nothing is impossible, one of the most important Jags has been restored after 7,000 hours of painstaking restoration efforts.
More than 47 years later, the Low Drag lightweight E-type was put back together using more than 90 percent of its original parts.
“Many said that it could not be done, and that most of the parts including the body panels, which had been bent beyond recognition, could not be used,” Jaguar said. “However, Peter Neumark and Classic Motor Cars Ltd’s team of dedicated of restorers has put the car back into the condition that it was just before the crash.”
“This is one of the most major restorations ever to take place in the World.” said Neumark. “Many said that it could not be done but we have proved them wrong.”
The Low Drag lightweight E-Type is a one of a kind with only 12 units ever produced between 1963 and 1964.
