Books - Jaguar Lightweight E Type, Autobiography of 49 FXN (Great Cars #8) (Authors: Porter, Page)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Jaguar Lightweight E Type, Autobiography Weight 2.5kg by Philip Porter & James Page The Autobiography series of very specific car histories began with a lightweight E-Type, 4 WPD, and we revisit the marque with the eighth volume, this time concentrating on one of the best known of these limited production sports-racers, 49 FXN. The car started life in 1963 as a standard lightweight E-Type and after a seasonís racing in the hands of Peter Lumsden and Peter Sargent it was significantly reworked into a low drag machine. In this form the two Peters campaigned it extensively and its career continued for many years after in the hands of numerous owners. During this time the bodywork suffered numerous dings and was restored and repainted in a variety of colours according to the taste of its custodian at the time. In recent years it has been fully restored and is once again a familiar sight on the circuits. This rich history is all told and lavishly illustrated, with reference to and memories from many of those who drove it, to create a thoroughly absorbing volume.
Over the years we have created a library here at GPM and many collectors regularly ask us which books we use most and which are the most reliable source of information. We offer quality titles selected for their reference material content.
