The Jaguar E-Type was 10 years old and needed new life. History
repeated itself and it was a huge success when Jaguar debuted its
robust new engine in a sports car instead of the saloon for which
it was designed. Despite its sports-car heritage. Jaguar depended
on saloon vehicles for its survival and had developed its twelve
cylinder engine to power them with sufficient torque and
refinement. Larger and softer in nature with weight redistributed
53/47. the Series III had lost the wilds of its youth but gained
the long legged touring profile. to which it was arguably better
suited. Robert Bell in Motor was quoted as saying at the time that
they all expected to try a new engine. but what in fact they drove
was a new car. Not a yowling. aggressive Ferrari-like machine with
which. perhaps. most people associate a V12 engine but a very
smooth. quiet and refined grand touring sports car.

This is a genuine UK righthand drive example that was originally
registered on 6th September. 1973 and has only had four former
keepers. Restored at some stage. although little is known
when or by whom. TPD 10M is a splendid example of these
increasingly popular E-Types. The V12 engine sounded 'exactly as
she should' on our test drive and performed well. as did the
automatic transmission; the rest of the car performed equally well
with no obvious faults. Finished in red with biscuit leather trim
and complemented by a sparkling set of chrome wire wheels. this
Series III roadster is in excellent all-round condition. Supplied
with a V5 registration document and a full years' MoT test
certificate. this classically dynamic design is still a head
turner.
