E Type Jaguar Specialist
What I Can Offer You
Sale of warranted, selected Jaguar E Types - from Concours to project cars, from rare 1961 to the last series. I bought my first 'XKE' in 1989. Several cars now in stock with access to many more. With a background in Body Design I prefer to source and supply original bodied cars where possible. Please see the sales page for current and some past cars.
You can engage me in sourcing your aspiration Jaguar from anywhere in the World. Proven expertise in sourcing from USA, Canada and Europe over the last 30 years. Tell me what you are looking for, the derivatives are complex to follow so I can guide you through models, features, change points, specs and values. I can buy for you and uplift suitable cars to your standard and specification. Registered and road ready of course!
My background is from 31 years in Engineering Design at Jaguar Cars culminating in the role of Programme Manager for the E Type Reborn Project. I personally oversaw the build and specification of the Reborn "Launch Car" (2017 Octane cover above), and have achieved concours wins with self prepared Series 1 and 3 E Types. Let me guide you regarding authenticity and originality of these amazing cars!

ABOUT HERITAGE CLASSICS LTD
"Supplying E Types to Enthusiasts"
Heritage Classics Ltd is owned and managed by Paul Bridges, ex Jaguar Landrover Classic Manager. Paul joined Jaguar Cars in 1988 and had a 31 year career in Engineering. He held positions in Technical Engineering Management in bodyshell design (F Type, XK, X Type), Programme Management and Vehicle Engineering Management within Special Vehicles including the unique F Type Project 7.
Paul left JLR and set up Heritage Classics Ltd in 2018 to focus on the business of "Supplying E Types To Enthusiasts"
His last role was within Jaguar Heritage / Jaguar Landrover Classic. He was Engineering Programme Manager for "Jaguar E Type Reborn" responsible for specification, sourcing & process definition for factory restoration of original Jaguar E Types. He also ran the manufacturing project set up to deliver brand new press tooling for the E Type bodyshell, and new tyres for XJ220 - now available for the first time in 20 years.
Paul was always a Classic Car enthusiast.....his first car was a Sunbeam Tiger, barn rescued and personally restored to show standard, shortly followed by a second Tiger restored and placed first in the Tiger Owners Club Concours. And then a suite of Jaguar E Types ranging from first to last, suitably restored or recommissioned. Whilst still a hobbyist, his 1972 V12 Roadster was placed highly in the early 2000s club concours on its first time out. Early in 2019, a 1968 FHC, another personal restoration, was awarded a First in the JEC Concours at Blenheim Palace.
In 2020 Paul restored chassis 22, one of the earliest open-lock E Types which was described as "The Reference Early E Type In The World" at Salon Privé in 2021.
