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.

Other mechanical changes beneath the Series III's more aggressive looking exterior included ventilated front disc brakes, anti-dive front suspension, Lucas transistor ignition and Adwest power-assisted steering, while automatic transmission was one of the more popular options on what was now more of a luxury Grand Tourer than out-and-out sports car. Flared wheel arches, a deeper radiator air intake complete with grille, and a four-pipe exhaust system distinguished the Series III from its six-cylinder forbears, plus, of course, that all-important 'V12' boot badge. The interior though, remained traditional Jaguar. From the new Series launch in 1971 to the end of production in 1975, some 15,200 were manufactured.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 is a fine restored example of the final Jaguar E-Type variant. Restored elegantly in red over tan, it is apparent that there was a lot of effort placed in restoring this E-Type back to its former glory, being cleanly finished throughout. Wearing the updated grille, flared fenders, open headlights, and quad-pipes coming from the rear, the trained eye is quick to spot this Series III V12 among earlier E-Type models. Offering the styling and performance of the final iteration of the legendary E-Type series, this nicely restored Series III is fit for any fine collection or to bring miles upon miles of continued road use after a full restoration.
