The accompanying Heritage Certificate confirms that this car was first registered in December 1971 as a right hand drive car finished in British Racing Green with Cinnamon Leather, the colour scheme it retains to this day. This Jaguar V12 E-Type (Series 3 Fixed Head Coupe) spent the first nineteen or so years of its life in South Africa hence a speedometer in Km and not being the victim of early onset UK corrosion. Then in 1990 it returned to our wetter shores and we have twenty or so subsequent MOT Certificates which back up the mileage in the UK, the first MOT registering some 41975km and the last MOT reading only 45904km. This would suggest that this car has covered less than 30,000 miles from new (although due to the age we could not confirm). We then supplied the car to its most recent keeper in July 2017, a gentleman 'dipping his toe' into the classic car market. He has enjoyed the E-Type to the extent that he has subsequently part exchanged it for a far more valuable example Series 1 3.8 and we are therefore delighted to be able to offer this very good example once again.

When preparing this example for our customer in 2017 we were instructed by its new owner to Go to town on the car and in this process, along with our normal preparatory servicing work, we fitted new front and rear shock absorbers, Poly-bushes, Radius arms etc. and bought the car cosmetically into very smart order, with some partial re-trimming and paint work. These works nudged £4,000.

Additionally, the vehicles file holds a number of earlier invoices showing good care in most recent years.

The E-Type Series 3 was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 Litre twelve cylinder engine, up-rated brakes and standard power steering. The brand new V12 engine was originally developed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was equipped with four Zenith carburettors. The engine was claimed to produce 272 hp, more torque, and a 0-60 mph acceleration of less than 7 seconds, the Series 3 available only as a convertible and 2+2 Fixed Head Coupe.

The Series III E-Type is now gathering a much stronger following as an icon of 1970s motoring as they are great driving cars and more comfortable than the Series I and II E-Types, especially if you are over 6ft tall. We expect the value of these cars to continue to grow alongside all E-Type Jaguars.

This Jaguar E-Type will be sold with the benefit of the Arun Classic Car Charter, details of which will be provided at sale.
