The Jaguar E-Type was 10 years old and needed new life. History
repeated itself by achieving huge success when Jaguar debuted its
robust new engine in a sportscar instead of the saloon for which it
was designed. Despite its sportscar 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
'all we expected to try was a new engine but what in fact we 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 two owner Series III fixedhead coupé was supplied new to
the first owner. Mr. A H Gordon. who lived in London. The
next owner. Mr. R H Reeves. acquired the car in April 1976 who then
changed the registered keeper to his daughter in 1994. This very
good. original example has been off the road since 2000 and has
just been re-commissioned this year only requiring a new clutch
master cylinder. fuel filters. ignition coil and new pedal springs.
The vendor believes that the mileage is correct at 46. 10 miles and
the old MoT's. the 2000 insurance valuation certificate and the
overall condition of this E-Type appear to validate that claim.
This Series III E-Type. finished in Cotswold blue with dark blue
interior. only requires minor cosmetic restoration. Supplied with
the car is the V5C registration document. all the old registration
documents going back to 1976. the handbook pack which contains the
service book and dealer book. a set of the original sales brochures
and a file of old MoT test certificate and invoices. This
classically dynamic design is still a head turner.
