Just a small detail in order to help make sure things are correct; the air filter housing should be black not silver for this chassis number. I have numbers 1e1012 and 1e1090.

Page 61, Factory Original Jaguar E Type, Anders Ditlev Clausager...” The air cleaner drum was now more often finished in silver rather than black.”

and same page...

also the air filter drum changed colour from black to silver during series 1 production...JCNA Judges Guide page. 8

both colours are correct.

Hi John,

You are correct that both colours were used on the series 1 4.2 cars, but the first 4.2s were all black. At the very least up to 1E1090, which I own.

A good example of originality and a black air filter housing can be found on this site by searching for 1E10310, which has a build date of 16th November 64. Even page 8 of the JCNA Judges Guide that you refer to states that the first 4.2s housings were black. The only silver air filter housings that I have ever seen on early 4.2s are ones that have been repainted. Ultimately if the owner is happy with it being silver, then leave it, I just don't think that it is correct.

Everyone has an opinion , right or wrong. I would take a known expert ,who is world renown over someone who has seen a few early cars. The Nov. car you refer to is hundreds of cars into the 4.2 production numbers. Also, Gavin King has restored numerous cars and his opinion should not be questioned nor disputed.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
