The final E-type incarnation saw the still-popular model become more grand tourer than sports car, but it still retained much of the aura and consequently popularity of the earlier models. As this 2+2 example shows, the V12-engined Series 3 remained popular in export markets but has thoughtfully been converted to right hand drive from its original left-hand drive configuration it had when exported to the USA. It went Scotland in 1990, spent a year in France and the steering conversion was carried out in 1997, the vendor says. A 1972 example, presented in less commonly seen white, this 'family' E-type has very good bodywork and paint (a complete re-spray involved no new panels being fitted), while the tinted glass and chrome is highly presentable. The shut lines are straight and tight too and the chrome wire wheels continue the well-presented theme. Contrasting with the white coachwork the black interior is smart and usable, the seat facings being patinated but not overly worn, while a re-lined roof is the sole deviation from the otherwise original interior. The centre console and dashboard are in fine order, as are the door cards. Mechanically this 2+2 is said to be very good, the engine starting and running well (with good oil pressure and re-conditioned carburettors), backed by a very good gearbox, suspension and brakes: The engine bay is presentable but could be improved by specialist detailing. In all, a highly usable and practical version of the final E-type series, sensibly estimated.
