Footnotes

  • This splendid E-Type Series III V12 Roadster was despatched new to the USA on 6th June 1972. Repatriated to the UK in 1990, the car was subsequently restored and converted from left- to right-hand drive in the process. It was acquired in 2005 by the vendor, a qualified motor engineer and experienced Jaguar restorer, immediately following a major service and suspension overhaul at Stratstone Jaguar in Blackburn undertaken in October that same year at 49,227 miles (invoice available).
    On acquisition, all mechanical elements were thoroughly examined and found not to require any replacement parts, enabling the vendor to concentrate his efforts on bringing the car’s body and paintwork up to a similar standard. The coachwork was stripped to bare metal and found to be corrosion free, after which all door, bonnet and boot shut-lines were carefully adjusted and the vehicle refinished in its original livery to an exemplary standard. The interior, part of which is thought to be original, was carefully refitted; all external brightwork re-plated and new chromed wire wheels fitted. While reassembling the coachwork it was thought prudent to remove the American Federal safety lamps, thus bringing the external appearance into line with that of UK-market cars.
    An automatic transmission model finished in sliver metallic with contrasting maroon interior, this freshly refurbished E-Type drives well and is most handsomely presented. The weather equipment and hood cover are in very good order and the car comes with full tool kit while further benefiting from two new tyres. ‘EOE 946K’ comes with MoT to March 2008, Swansea V5C document, Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, the aforementioned service invoice and five expired MoTs for the period November 1997 at 48,727 miles to September 2006 at 49,227. The current recorded mileage is 49,496, indicating a mere 769 miles covered in the past 9½ years.
