Jaguar : E-Type Convertible for sale
RELISTED WITH LOWER RESERVE. Reserve was almost met last listing but not quite. Good luck bidding on this great Jaguar.
Beautiful 1973 Series III E-Type Convertible. 4 speed with air. 37. 24 orig. miles. All numbers matching. Buying a Jaguar long distance can present a number of issues. I will try to describe the car as completely as I can. I have owned the car since 2009 and have put less than 800 miles on it. The car has been maintained and improved but not restored to show condition. The car is an excellent driver/local show car. The car is from Arizona and has no body rust or rot. The underside is totally solid. I can't find any evidence of any wreck or body damage. However. the lower air duct under the hood has been scrapped and dented. The car has been repainted once in the original Primrose Yellow and the paint is still in great condition but does have some chips particularly along the cowl at the edge of the hood. The chrome is excellent with no fading. pitting. or flaking. The tires have less than 1000 miles. The car has chrome wire wheels in excellent condition. New parts include an aluminum radiator. rebuilt steering rack. fuel pump. fuel filter. ballast resister. nbsp;and oil change.
The car runs and drives great. It tracks true down the road at 60 mph with no shimmy. shakes or rattles. The clutch is fine w/no slips or snicks. The transmission shifts fine with no grinding. The ride is quiet and you can carry on a conversation or hear the radio up to 55 mph. The engine is strong and starts good and maintains good oil pressure. The car runs a little rough for the first 5 minutes of warm up and then smooths out nicely with ample power and proper idle. The engine compartment is clean but not detailed in any way. The car has some of the usual lower oil leaks. The brakes function fine but the handbrake light remains on.
The interior is good but not great. The seat covers are light tan. not original and the driver's seat shows wear on the beading near the door but has no rips or tears. The carpet is dark tan and OK but older. The door panels are tan and in good shape with some wear. All gauges work except the clock which did work but does not now. The light and flasher. and fan switches work. The interior light switch does not. The windshield is clear but does have a wiper scratch. The radio is not original but does work. The top is ok but has shrunk and has a 1/2 inch split in the rear window.
The cooling system has no leaks and the car does not run hot. The Air Conditioning has been upgraded to 134a but has a slow leak in the compressor and needs recharging each year to cool properly. Some of the A/C louvre slats in the dash are missing.
Included are two sets of keys. spare tire. jack. tools and bag. luggage rack. tonneau. driver's side remote mirror.
I have priced the car with a fair reserve for a low mileage. numbers matching car in its condition. This is a great solid driver + quality car. If you are looking for a car to drive or restore to a show car. this could be the car for you. I have the title in hand and it is clean and clear. If you need any additional information you may contact me at (812) 568-5999. Thanks. Bob
P. S. I have added some additional photos showing some of the body gaps. the trunk floor (the brown around the soundproofing is original glue) and the underside of the car.

I have found some documents which I forgot I had (which will be included with the sale). Based on these. I am the third owner. The car originally was sold in California then bought by a person in Arizona and I bought it in Arizona in 2009.
