1971 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12 Roadster Manual For Sale by Auction

A well-restored, UK-delivered RHD, manual gearbox V12... To be sold by Silverstone Auctions at ‘The Sale of British Marques’ at 2:00pm on Saturday 11th May 2019 at Heythrop Park near Chipping Norton (OX7 5UF). For more information please contact the office on +44 (0) 1926 640 888. 1971 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12 Roadster Manual Lot number: 419 - Estimate (£): 70,000 - 80,000 (+buyer's premium of 15% including VAT @ 20%) - Henlys of London-supplied, right-hand drive Series 3 from 17-years ownership - Bare metal respray in Signal Red with black tex interior with a photographic record - Invoices in excess of £27,500 in the file from XK Engineering Ltd dated back to 1993 - Jaguar main dealer maintained since 2005 with 13 service invoices in the file - Cracking Series 3 with a Heritage Certificate and a fascinating history file A decade after the Jaguar E-Type arrived, the design progressively matured through various developments until 1971 when the Series 3 was introduced. Designed to showcase the new smooth and torquey 5.3-litre engine, originally developed for Le Mans, the Series 3 cars were available as a 'Roadster' (convertible) or a '2+2' Coupé. These later cars are easily distinguished from their six-cylinder predecessors by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, a pronounced bonnet bulge, updated bumpers, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. It also featured uprated brakes, power steering as standard and a large horizontal scoop added to the underside of the bonnet to assist with cooling. The interior was entirely new in the V12, with more comfortable seating, stylish new door panels and a smaller, dished and leather-rimmed steering wheel. Being slightly larger and altogether much softer in nature, the E-Type in Series 3 form had lost the wildness of its youth but gained the long-legged touring profile, to which it was arguably better suited. Approximately 7,990 Series 3 Roadsters were sold worldwide before production ceased in 1975. We are pleased to offer this original right-hand drive, manual gearbox, UK-supplied 1971 E-type Series 3 Roadster which, according to its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, was built on 16th September 1971, finished in White with light blue interior and despatched to Henlys Limited, London on 14th of October 1971. This well-restored example is now finished in Signal Red with Black Tex trim and has been owned by our vendor for some 17-years, having purchased it in late 2002. Currently indicating 67,788 miles, the car has patently been looked after and carefully maintained during his ownership with the service records confirming that it's had 13 annual services at a Jaguar Main Dealer over the 13 years between 2005 and 2018 and has covered less than 2,500 miles during this period and around 3,934 miles to date during current ownership. The car is accompanied by an interesting History File which, as well as the service records, contains 20 pages of invoices for in excess of £27,500 from XK Engineering Ltd. dating back to to 1993, old MOTs going back to 1981, a photographic record of a bare metal respray, and a further invoice dated February 2004 from the E-type Centre, Warwickshire, where our vendor treated the car to a new hood, a full service, and other remedial work at a total cost of £1,981.38. Having used the car sparingly during his long ownership, our vendor has reluctantly taken the decision to sell his beloved E-Type. Currently, indicating 67,788 miles, this well presented Series 3 in Signal Red and black, on chrome wire wheels, with a fascinating history file, an MoT until October 2019 issued with no advisories, and guided sensibly, will put a smile on anybody's face this summer.
