Its published and printed by Spirit Press & Publications.This book is a first edition and is signed and dated by the author, Dick Russ 1992, in black ink, on the first blank page. Heres the introduction found on the inside front flap of the dust-jacket. The E-Type Jaguar has always been an exciting and popular sports car here in the U. As well as abroad, but it wasnt until the past couple of years that the popularity and demand reached such monumental proportions.
Unfortunately, not all of the E-Type Jaguars reached the same popularity as did the V-12 roadster. The answer is they were exactly the way the factory built them or authentically restored to as near new as possible. This book was written to enable craftsmen to restore an E-Type exactly the way it was originally built or investors to be able to look at a car and determine just how authentic the car really is and if not authentic what it would take to make it so.Heres the list of contents found inside the book. The pictures you see above are as follows: Front of the dust-jacket, Back of the dust-jacket, Front of the cover, Back of the cover, Authors signature and date on first page, and then various other photos found throughout the book. Dont miss out on your chance to own this RARE, signed copy! It will not last at this price! This book is the best documentation, from a trusted source, that you will find for this particular type of vehicle, on the market. Russ uses low mileage cars to illustrate proper original condition. One car given in the book, has less than 100 miles. The book is brimming with color photos and has clear, detailed descriptions of various components. The book is in good condition.
