At Legends Classics Ltd we continue relentlessly to ensure we are on top of new innovative ideas within the classic car engineering market, it is a matter of our company policy to expect engineering excellence in all areas associated to the production of our Legends C Type.
We selected with great scrutiny our team of highly skilled craftsmen which enables us to construct these high quality hand built iconic sports cars, those directly employed and sub contractors alike are respected craftsmen with excellent reputations in their own rights, together we are all proud of the products we produce and offer the discerning buyer.
Legends Classics philosophy is to keep all things simple, “change the minimum, what you do change make the difference” to replicate this beautiful 50's racing car using traditional manufacturing techniques of wheel and buck is the only direction for us.
The process began by scanning an original C-Type and creating a CAD model on leading software direct from our colleagues in the USA, culminating in the production of a high quality wooden buck made to our own specifications introducing subtle changes in overall dimensions to ensure high proportion of originality but with additional adjustments for comfort and practicality. Our team of coach builders have over 50 years experience between them and have produced many C and D types, AC's, and many more including prototype's, they are a joy to watch as flat sheet is transformed to smooth curves and folds.
Our tubular high specification steel tube and box sectioned chassis has been designed closely to replicate original in appearances, we have been as subtle as possible to its construction to now carry Jaguar Independent suspension, our welders are high specified coded experts with many years experience in high tolerance, pressure and stress welding, later being coated with zinc based primer utilised in the oil rig and shipping industry, then finished as per originals in silver.
The ever reliable XK 4.2 Engines are used on our base model, these have been carefully sourced, each engine has been stripped and rebuilt, using all genuine replacement components, cranks reground and balanced and heads rebuilt to lead free fuel specifications by our highly regarded Engineer in the C Type sphere, full race engines can also be supplied to your own individual requirements, being mated to the ever reliable T5 gearbox, all running gear and braking systems are Jaguar tried and tested based products’
Legends Classics "evolved through determination, passionate belief in our products and the continual development of our range".
