Restored 1968 Jaguar E-Type stretched with a matching trailer

Jaguar E-Type is considered as one of the most beautiful cars ever built. A Bridgnorth based Classic Motor Cars Limited has been restoring Jaguar’s for customers around the world and their latest project is a 1968 Jaguar E-Type series 1 4.2 roadster, which was stretched by 11mm for improved handling and extra rear seat leg room.

Nick Goldthorp, Managing Director of CMC, said: “The car is phenomenal to drive. This is the E-Type that Jaguar Cars should have built. The extra space makes all the difference and actually alters the whole attitude of the car.”

Usually we are not big fans of classic cars that get customized too much compared to the original shape, but this one looks gorgeous.

The client form United Sites also requested a trailer to be built as he travels a lot. The matching trailer is built from two E-Type rear ends joined together.

The trailer is connected to the car via a removable tow hitch, which locks into position through the revering light aperture. The reversing light hides the hitch mechanism when the trailer is not in use and the tow hitch is removed.

The E-Type has been named “the Kaizen” by Paul Branstad, the owner, and takes its name from one of Toyota’s founding principles, Kaizen, which means “understand the imperative to make continuous improvements and then get to work.”
