E-Type Color Combinations


This is an attempt to chart all of the various color combinations that were used throughout the production of the E-Types. As this information came from various sources, there may be errors.

Special order color combinations were available from the factory from the beginning of production. The final judgement of the original color combinations for a specific car would be the JDHT certificate available from the Jaguar archives.
