Hi James,
the '67 E-Type was full synchro but the '53 had a crummy crash box. No synchro on 1st and nothing very good on 2nd or 3rd. We changed out the box for a more modern box which was full synchro a d much stronger.

On the track, even in more modern cars with stick shift, I still double clutch on downshifting. That's to keep the rear tires from losing traction while under heavy braking while setting up for the approaching corner.
