1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III Additional Info:

The classic British design of the Jaguar E-Type is greatly admired in the world of classic cars. It is a body design that is recognizable as purely and iconicJaguar, and from a period of Jaguar racing that was nothing short of marvelous. For the Jaguar E-type, however, it was arguably the Series 3 that took the cake. Bread of necessity, the Series 3 featured ahigh-performance V12 manual transmission to compensate for the weight added when conforming to the North American market’s strict emissions control standards. The result was a success. The indelible classic E-type Jaguar Series 3 was not only affordable formany, but also drove with more power and more torque, while still boasting the same, though slightly modified, the elegant aerodynamic long-body design that Heynes and Sayer will always be remembered for. Featured here is a fine original example, with a surprisingly original Cinnamon leather interior that has been well preserved, still taut and proudly boasting its original patina. The exterior paint in original color Sable is beautiful, thanks to a recent paint correction which has restored the richlustre of this uniquely 70’s-era tone of brown. The vehicle appears to have had a professional repaint at some point that was carefully protected and preserved thereafter. Only one minor paint imperfection is visible on the rear trunk lid. Original books, operating manual, toolkit, and service records showing $11,000 of maintenance since 2006. The vehicle has been test driven and received service to the fuel pump, with oil and filter change while in our possession. This is a great driver’s quality Series 3 E-Type Roadster.
