THE SERIES III JAGUAR E-TYPE

It was in 1971 that Jaguar introduced the Series III of their 20th Century classic E-Type, with the Walter Hassan/Harry Mundy-developed 5.3-liter SOHC V12 engine which became an industry standard for its combination of smoothly unobtrusive torque and power. With the large cross-slatted radiator grille – described by Motor Sport magazine as "a decorative birdcage" – flared wheel arches accommodating wider track and bigger tires, plus V12 nomenclature adorning the tail, these Series III cars continued all the American Federal Regulations features of the preceding Series II models while also adopting uprated brakes and power steering as standard. From the new Series launch in 1971 to the end of production in 1975, some 15,200 were manufactured.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Built in December of 1972, the sensational example of Jaguar's legendary V12 E-Type offered here left the Browns Lane Jaguar Works configured as a left hand drive car, destined for the US. It was finished in British Racing Green, and trimmed in with biscuit colored interior, and fitted with chrome wire wheels.

Much of this particular V12 early history remains unknown. A few years ago it was exported to Brazil. There it was put through an extensive restoration by R&E Restauracoes in San Paulo. The work is to extremely high quality, and in the original highly desirable color scheme of British racing green with biscuit interior.

The V 12 series III types were the last and most refined of the breed. The powerful V12 offered a smoothness that was seldom found in other vehicles of the day. Fitted with power steering comfortable seats and excellent brakes, V12 E Types became true grand touring vehicles. Having traveled less then 500 miles since restoration this suburb example would be the perfect weekend cruiser, or as a welcome participant on any number of drivers events. The opportunity to acquire this superb example should not be missed.
