Launched in 1961. the Jaguar E-Type is one of the world's iconic
motor cars and probably one of the period's most dreamt about
school boy fantasies. Originally released in coupe form. the open
top soon followed with Enzo Ferrari calling the E-Type "the most
beautiful car in the world. " The car underwent many changes during
its life resulting in the final version being introduced in 1971. br/>some 10 years after initial production. The Museum of Modern Art
recognised the significance of the design by adding a blue roadster
to its collection in 1996. In 2004. Sports Car International
magazine placed the E-Type at number one on their list of Top
Sports Cars of the 1960s whilst later. in March 2008. the Jaguar
E-Type ranked first in the Daily Telegraph's list of the '100 most
beautiful cars of all time'.

On offer today is an example of the final version of the Jaguar
E-Type. the Series III which is easily identifiable by the large
cross-slatted front grill and flared wheel arches. Manufactured as
a convertible. it is fitted with the 5. 3 litre V12 configured non
fuel injected engine. This power plant is legendary for its quiet
and silky smooth operation. Drive is via a three speed Borg Warner
12 automatic gearbox and is known for its durability. 85% of all
E-Types were exported with this particular car going to the United
States in 1974 in left hand drive form. Repatriatedback into
the UK in 2004. this Jaguar E-Type is UK registered and currently
holds a valid MoT test certificate. There is a large history file
of invoices for many thousands of dollars during its life in the
USA. Recent works include a new battery. fuel pump. ball joints. br/>various bushes. gaskets and the removal of the US specification
over-riders and conversion to UK specification bumpers. A
Jaguar Series 3 V12 E-Type. Operating. Maintenance and Service
Handbook and a Repair Operation Manual accompany the car.

Looking handsome in its black coachwork and tan trim. this
particular E-Type displays very good panel gaps with the paintwork
displaying well with only a few minor blemishes only visible on
close inspection. The interior is fully serviceable with no rips or
tears evident to the trim. The hood is in good order with only one
minor tear towards the lower forward part
on the driver's side. believed to be an easy repair. In summary;
this is a handsome open top V12 E-Type being offered with a very
tempting estimate. An opportunity. surely. to enter ownership of an
iconic motor car at a realistic price.
