    After a full restoration I finally got my 1972 E-type back yesterday... Pretty much rebuilt everything incl the V12 and 5 speed gearbox, fixed a lot of rust etc etc In the process I converted the open headlights to the original covered headlights of the earlier models...

    Stunning!!! Enzo always said the E-type was his type! The profile looks like a modern day CFD exercise. ;)

    Can I ask how many hours you have into the restoration, or would that make you cry?

    I didn’t do the work myself, I wish I had been able too.. based on the body shop and mechanic labor, I m guessing 600 to 700 hours.

    The only thing I m doing myself is the interior. That’s going to be 40 to 50 hours

    couple of days ago I checked Hagerty value guide and values have really gone up in the last 6 to 12 months even fornthe lowly series 3 coupe which are always the cheapest of all. That made me feel much better, not being upside down is a great feeling :)
