For sale with Barons Auctions on Saturday 17th September 
Jaguar Heritage. Classic Cars and Motorcycles Auction at Kempton Park. TW16 5AQ

This 1973 Series 3 V12 E-Type is described by the vendor as a beautiful example. showing approx 54. 00 recorded miles. and presented with a Jaguar Heritage certificate confirming the original colours of Greensand exterior with Olive interior.

Originally sold to Quebec. the car first changed hands in 1977 to the second owner with a recorded and documented 38. 00 miles. the car was purchased from the second owner in 2013 with a signed bill of sale confirming the mileage to be original. The vendor is the third owner and the first in the UK.

The car was wax injected from new. as a result all of the bodywork is 100% original. it has had no welding or replacement panels. nor does it need any - there is still evidence of wax all over. The car is an unrestored original but has recently been fitted with replacement pale green carpets (where required) manufactured from what is probably the very last roll of new old stock Jaguar factory hessian backed short pile carpet as original. The car also has a long term stored. very good original condition and rare black vinyl convertible top with its original grey lining and matching hood cover. These have been unavailable for 30 years.

The car still even has its perfectly functioning Kangol retracting seatbelts with colour coded webbing. and British Leyland radio.
The leather seat covers. leather headrests. door trims. sill / post covers. rear cabin trim. visors etc are all original and again very good and testament to the cars' mileage. The car was never fitted with A/C making the dash as uncluttered as a UK car and leaving the original and perfect stowage bins in place.

Mechanically the car is also refurbished as opposed to restored - it is fitted with a Euro spec high compression engine which runs superbly and. fitted with a moderately loud free flowing exhaust. performs superbly and with very sprightly acceleration and plenty of sporting exhaust burble & feedback. The original and superb chrome pressed wheels are fitted with matched Pirelli P6000 tyres to original spec.

Overall this is a surprisingly original car. and. in the last 2. 00 miles has had major service work - £3000+ (plugs. leads. engine oil. filter. hoses. header tank. all hydraulic hoses. clutch cylinders. brake master cylinder. exhaust & gearbox mounts. all grease points. 4 carb rebuild. air filters etc) - it was recently driven to Classic Le Mans and is genuinely as reliable as a car of this age can be. The car comes with the original Service manual. operating manual. lube charts. safety regs. plus a wad of receipts for parts and service going back to 1977. It is also road tax free.

Guide price £45. 00 to £52. 00
