Guide price: £35000 - £40000. A UK-supplied, matching numbers, Series 3, 2 + 2 automatic in Jaguar Light BlueRecently emerged from 40 years in storage and now ripe for a full restorationThe fuel system and tank were cleaned, new spark plugs, oil and filter fittedNew starter motor fitted and the car started straight away with excellent oil pressureThe appropriate registration number 'VEE 12J' will remain with the carA lovely original Series 3 that could be an outstanding example of the marque when finishedThe Series 3 V12 was the final version of the famous E-Type and was introduced in 1971 as a 2 + 2 Coupe or Roadster variant. The car that Enzo Ferrari once claimed was the "Most beautiful car in the world" finally ended production in 1974 and was eventually replaced by the Jaguar XJS.This particular car is a UK-supplied Series 3 V12 Coupe fitted with an automatic gearbox and has had just one owner from new. The rather appropriate registration number, VEE 12J, has been on the car from new and does indeed form part of the sale.
This is a matching numbers car and still in its original colour scheme, as confirmed by the Heritage Certificate in the paperwork, and has very recently emerged from some 40 years in storage. The engine was found to turn over freely, so the fuel system and tank were cleaned, new spark plugs, oil and filter fitted, along with a new starter motor and - hey presto- she started straight away with excellent oil pressure. The brake system has been gone through, fresh fluid bled into the system, and all transmission fluids refreshed. The car drove superbly and today is a totally original example with no obvious welding anywhere, all original panels and floors, and good quality panel gaps throughout.This remarkable survivor is now ripe for a full restoration and will become an outstanding example of the marque when finished. A rare and very special opportunity with a realistic price guide.
