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".

Originally registered on 1st June 1974, this cherished Series III roadster is presented in red with cream leather hide, a black mohair hood and desirable contrasting factory hard top. It has been in single ownership since 1987 and still retains its first servicing invoice from White Gates garage in Glastonbury. Our vendor was certainly an enthusiast and many hours and a significant budget was assigned to the upkeep of his beloved Series III. In recent years Beacon Hill Garage in Hindhead have cared for the car and kept it regularly serviced. Many invoices for parts and work from throughout the late 80's and 90's can be found within the comprehensive history file as our vendor went about renewing and restoring this example to a fine condition. Sadly, due to ongoing health issues, the decision has now been made to part with his pride and joy. This desirable Series III is offered with the correct handbook, sales brochure and repair manual, luggage rack, MoT test until June 2021, servicing history dating back to 1983 and benefits from a recent minor service. A fabulous automatic example of this great British icon which is perfect for long distance touring or for just enjoying the long summer days in.
