Guide price: £50000 - £60000. Lovely Series 3 V12  2+2 presenting beautifully in Primrose Yellow over black leatherJust under 69,000 miles indicated and has covered only 500 miles since 2006Restored over a seven-year period at a cost in excess of £100,000UK-supplied,right-hand drive car described by our vendor as matching engine, chassis and manual gearboxLarge detailed history folders including a photographic record of the restoration A decade after the original Jaguar E-Type arrived, the design progressively matured through 1971 with the introduction of the Series 3.  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.  The Series 3 is easily identifiable by its large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, a larger 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.The lovely example on offer here is the property of a family estate, being sold after its loving owner sadly passed away. It's an original UK-supplied, right-hand drive car, factory specified with the desirable manual gearbox and finished in Primrose Yellow with a black leather interior, arguably, one of the best-suited colour combinations for the Plus 2 silhouette. Our vendor purchased the Jaguar in 2012 and, whilst overall it appeared in good condition, some areas of the underbody were suffering from corrosion. Consideration was given to attempting localised repairs but, eventually, the decision was made to commission a total nut and bolt restoration of engine, body, interior and axle. The owner was fastidious in keeping track of all his expenditure and, accompanying the car, is a ledger detailing all payments made during his tenure totalling over One Hundred Thousand Pounds. He also recorded the various stages of restoration photographically. Also supplied with the car are a large number of invoices and MOTs dating back to 1985, and other partial history dating back to the 1990's, and viewing of the various document folders is highly recommended.Having spent some time in storage, the family asked the company that carried out the restoration to refresh it and prepare it for sale. This fabulous E-Type is now in show winning condition, on the button and absolutely ready to enjoy.
