Famous E-type to star at show
The competitive debut of the restored Lindner/Nocker low-drag lightweight Jaguar E-type will be the highlight of the fourth Cholmondeley Pageant of Power on July 16/17.
The only such car built by the Jaguar factory, the elegant streamliner was raced by Germans Peter Lindner and Peter Nocker in 1964 until it was badly damaged at Montlhery in the accident that claimed Lindner’s life.
For 40 years the special body lay in storage, thought to be beyond salvage. But Peter Neumark’s Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth has restored it, and 7000 man hours and three years later the work is complete, using more than 90 per cent of the original body. “This restoration is a wonderful testament to the highly skilled team in our body shop,” said Neumark.
Other key attractions at the Cheshire event include Vanwalls from the Donington Collection and the Stirling Moss Monacowinning Lotus 18.
