Australian Customers

For all our customers in Australia we can now offer the following Manifolds and systems for

E-Type / XK / MK1&2 Owners

Through our agents in Australia (Concours Restorations)

By creating a partnership between Classicfabs in Scotland and Concours Restorations in Australia and arranging a ‘bulk’ shipment we are able to keep these quality systems at an affordable cost that is not also pushed up greatly by individual shipping costs.

Systems on offer include:

1) E-Type Owners who specifically want to keep their Cast Manifolds (Series 1, 1.5 & 2)

For owners who want keep the ‘Original’ look of the Cast Manifolds under the bonnet, why not enhance the sound of your E-type, the rear end looks and performance by fitting a Classicfabs 2” Big Bore Straight Through system.

We have also improved the original muffler mounts, the resonator mounts and the resonators have the welded parts polished out.

This straight through system is also available in standard 1.3/4”

The system comes polished as standard throughout.

2) Classicfabs E-Type Long Manifold (Series 1, 1.5 & 2)

This system is our best-selling system with both enhanced performance (even for stock engines) and our unique Classicfabs sound.

The options are either our standard polished manifold or brushed finish to enable ‘jet / ceramic coating’.

3) Classicfabs E-Type Short Manifold System (Series 1, 1.5 & 2)

Again a great looking and quality engineered manifold for those wanting the close up aesthetics of a good looking manifold to enhance the under bonnet looks of your engine bay.

This also gives a slight improvement to the performance of your car and when combined with our straight through system our unique sound.
