1951 Jaguar C-Type Replica

Shell Valley 1951 Jaguar C-Type Replica

This replica has been thoughtfully completed to be a delightful driving machine. With the looks of

a racer and features of a cruiser, the heart of this auto is the Jaguar 4.2L inline 6 cylinder

equipped with triple Weber DCOE 45 carbs and 9:1 compression. Mated to Tremec T5

manual gearbox conversion from classic Jaguar makes this car a joy to drive. Careful planning

and thought has gone into the assembly of the car throughout, including modern sound deadener,

heat shielding, splash guards and finishing panels under the dash area. The addition of gas assisted lifting

struts for the bonnet make accessing the engine compartment a breeze. Latches and leather straps

to secure the bonnet give the look and feel of the original. Inside the cockpit you will find original smiths

gauges sourced from the same ’67 Jaguar 420 the engine came from.  Looking through the Brooklands

windscreens mounted atop custom risers gives a sense true British motoring.
