The E-Type Series III was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 litre, V12 engine, uprated brakes and standard power steering. Optionally, an automatic transmission, wire wheels and air conditioning were available. The brand new V12 engine came with four Zenith carburettors and was claimed to produce 272bhp, more torque, and a 0-60mph acceleration of less than seven seconds, which was phenomenal for the price of the car at that time, considering its competition in the market place. The short wheelbase fixedhead coupé body style was discontinued, with the Series III available only as a convertible and 2+2 coupé. The newly used longer wheelbase now offered significantly more room in all directions. These models were easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. It is thought that only 7,990 convertibles and 7,297 fixedhead cars were produced.

Registered on 1st July 1974 this desirable manual car is offered in its original factory Pale Primrose Yellow, with matching removable hardtop, Biscuit leather interior and beige Mohair hood. The vendor purchased the car in 2003 and since then has invested considerable time and money into restoring it to its current condition. Most of the work has been carried out in the last six years with the car only covering around 3,000 miles in that time. In 2006 the engine was removed, fully stripped down and rebuilt by the Classic Car Specialist Robin Lackford Motor Engineering in West Sussex. The gearbox was overhauled at the same time and refitted with new rear mountings. In 2014, a major restoration of the bodywork was undertaken by West Hoathly, Garage in Sussex (Rolls-Royce and Bentley Specialist). This entailed stripping the car down, removing all the paint back to the bare metal before repainting it. Many fittings and parts were either restored or replaced on reassembly along with re-chromed bumpers. In addition to the above work the hardtop has also been restored, the interior has had a complete no expense spared re-trim, all the chrome work has been replaced, a stainless steel exhaust has been fitted as well as a set of chrome wire wheels being fitted.

Supplied in the history file is a V5C registration document, Heritage Certificate from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, a substantial photographic record of the rebuild work carried out and lots of documentation included itemised bills with parts and details of work carried out. This E-Type is in a class of its own and ready to enjoy.
