THE SERIES III JAGUAR E-TYPE

In 1971, 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. Subsequently, this engine 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

Manufactured in November of 1972, and dispatched to British Leyland Canada in March of 1973, the roadster sold new to its first owner in Victoria on July 23, 1974. The car came equipped with 4-speed manual transmission, power steering, power brakes, and chrome wire wheels. In true roadster fashion, the car was ordered without air-conditioning, making for a much tidier dash and engine bay. The V12 Roadster is presented in its original and seldom seen charismatic livery of turquoise with black leather and a black top.

The original numbers matching roadster has recently been gone through from top to bottom, both cosmetically and mechanically. The body received a high-quality repaint in the original shade of turquoise, the paint under the hood and trunk is believed to be original with no signs of any prior damage. The seats, carpet, and soft top have recently been beautifully redone. The braking system has been rebuilt and received new rotors and pads, and the steering rack has been rebuilt. With an odometer reading of less than 49,000 miles, which is believed to be original, the car is reported to be in excellent mechanical shape with a strong engine and healthy gearbox. The V12 power is transferred to the ground via four new Pirelli tires. Accompanied by its original books, tools, and Jaguar Heritage Certificate, this suburb low mileage example would be the perfect weekend cruiser, or as a welcome participant on any number of drivers events. The opportunity to acquire such a unique E-type should not be missed.
