My first post to the forum. I have recently purchased a '62
FHC (RHD) that was under restoration as a street rod of
sorts for several years until the owner was unable to continue.
As you may know, vintage racing in the states is not
typically in conformance with FIA regs. Being a RHD car, and
along with the fact that I appreciate the FIA’s higher
standards for ‘‘period correctness’’, I am planning to build
the car to the FIA’s Appendix K regs and have obtained the
homologation papers for doing so.
The primary issue is that there are few (any?) USA E-Types
built to FIA standards. So, in short, I am looking for good
references and sounding boards for questions when they come
up. Perhaps this thread can be that resource or someone can
point me in the right direction.
I am experienced in the mechanics of Triumphs and Porsche
911’s, but this is my first Jaguar. I fell in love with the
silhouette many years ago and finally jumped in.
I would any thoughts from those familiar with FIA vintage
racing and look forward to your input.
