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

Presented here is a remarkable 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster, which benefits from having had just one owner until recently. The vehicle has been well cared for over 40 years of ownership and presents well despite never receiving a complete restoration. Attractive Regency Red paint covers the neatly styled exterior while classic Biscuit leather adorns the interior fitments. With 36,000 miles logged over the extended ownership, the car has had one repaint in it's original, Regency Red. However, the vehicle is mechanically sounds and just received a cylinder head servicing. From the factory the car was fitted with the 3 major options available: an automatic transmission, wire wheels, and air conditioning.

With the effortless torque of the V12 humming along, endless miles of cruising should come with little frustration as this Jaguar was made to devour miles. Couple the cruising prowess with the joys of open top motoring and you've got the recipe for endless joy.
