The Jaguar E-Type was ten years old and needed a new lease of
life. History repeated itself and it was a huge success when Jaguar
debuted its robust V12 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 the
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 handsome E-Type roadster is finished in primrose yellow and
is a highly original example. The car shows little sign of ever
having had any paintwork undertakenand the beige interior trim has
a lovely patina to it. Equipped with power steering. automatic
transmission and air conditioning. this Series III is described as
driving with no known faults. The silky V12 engine purrs in a way
few other vehicles do and the gearbox is smooth in operation.
Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full year's MoT test
certificate. this E-Type roadster is believed to have covered only
58. 00 miles (not warranted) since it left Browns Lane 42 years
ago. A great investment opportunity.
