Special E-type 'rebuild of year'

2011-11-18 09:35

BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE: The Lindner Nöcker E-type has been awarded a 'Restoration of the Year' title.

Classic Motor Cars, which took 7000 man-hours to restore what is now recognised as the one of the most famous Jaguar E-types in the world, has been awarded the Restoration of the Year title at an international awards ceremony in London.

The car is the Lindner Nöcker E-type raced by Lindner and Peter Nocker in the 1964 Le Mans but, a few weeks later, was destroyed in a huge crash.
The Octane International Historic Motoring awards honoured a team of craftsmen at CMC who restored the vehicle from a mangled wreck and were able to save 90% of the original car.

Nick Goldthorp, MD of CMC, said: “It was a real labour of love. It proves that British craftsmanship and dedication is alive and well.”
The awards were judged by an international panel of judges which included five-times Le Mans winner Derek Bell, TV host and car collector Jay Leno, Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason and Lady Susie Moss, wife of Stirling Moss.
