Jaguar E-Type Six Cylinder Originality Guide October 18, 2017
Reviewer: Ignacio Salas-Humara from Comfort, TX United States  
A meticulous, one-of-a-kind, wonderful, and necessary resource for the E-Type owner and restorer. A painstaking feat of automotive archeology.

Excellent for 3.8 E-type owners May 30, 2017
Reviewer: Alan Derrick from CALLANDER, Stirling United Kingdom  
The level of detail presented on the 3.8 litre series 1 cars is fantastic. However, the details become rather less comprehensive for 4.2 series 1 and series 2 models. e.g. there are clear photos of variations on the 3.8 door drainage ducts but for the 4.2 it is merely stated that the ducts were changed at some point.
Even for owners of the early cars there are details left unexplored. Whereas there is considerable detail of casting marks on major components such as the engine block, the originality of which to a particular car is relatively easy to authenticate via serial numbers and production records, there are no descriptions or photographs of components which are less likely to have survived, such as door seal cross sections and profiles.

Overall, it is a fantastic reference book for the 3.8 litre enthusiast but represents less good value for the owners of 4.2 litre cars. It would perhaps have been better to have presented information only on the 3.8 litre cars.

Great source of information May 26, 2017
Reviewer: John Hassiepen from Peoria, IL United States  
I don't have enough personal experience with original 6 cylinder E-Types to know whether or not this book is the "authority".  But if it isn't, it sure fooled me!

Reviewer: Richard Higginbotham from Waterloo, ON Canada  
A great book while not definitive, contains a lot of useful information with pictures. Well worth the money and a great addition to my library.

Incredible Resource for the XKE Enthusiast! April 26, 2017
Reviewer: DriverSource from Houston, TX United States  
We have been using Dr. Haddock's previous E-Type Restoration Guide as reference for years now. His newest publication: Jaguar E-Type Six Cylinder -
Originality Guide simply is THE best E-Type book ever compiled with its remarkable level of detail and accuracy. A most cherished resource in our motoring library.
