1972 Jaguar E Type Series III Roadster - Low mileage 33K Miles For Sale

An extremely original, low mileage V12 LHD roadster that has benefited from a detailed recommissioning in our workshops over the last year.

Delivered to the US in 1972,the mileage reading of 33409 is believed to be correct and is verified by the dated service stickers found on the vehicle. The previous owner in California, also confirmed that in his opinion the mileage was correct, as the car had been kept in a heated garage for some 15/20 years prior to sale in 2014.

Since arriving in our workshops, the V12 Roadster has been subject to a thorough examination, and a partial renovation of the bodywork and mechanicals has been carried out. Any areas of corrosion have been treated, and where appropriate work carried out to the sill sections, floor pan and wings.

Following on from the bodywork, the engine has been stripped, with the bottom end and bores being examined, and found to be in excellent condition.

The top end has just been overhauled, with new valve guides and seats being fitted by a specialist company.

Overall an excellent low mileage LHD V12 Roadster, that has been recently recommissioned after some decades of little use, following an extensive recommissioning at a cost in excess of £40K, it is now ready for use and extremely well suited for continental touring. Having both soft and the rarer hard top for winter use.

Our asking price includes VAT and NOVA entry for UK registration

Model History:
The E-type was very much a child of the 1960s, but the sleek and stylish star developed middle age spread for the Series 3, 10 years after its debut. Wheel arches flared, extra chrome was added, the almost delicate-looking front grille was enlarged to feature egg-crate slats, disc wheels replaced wires and only longer wheelbase 2+2 roadsters and coupes were available. The purity of the original was replaced by a fussiness that hinted at Jaguar doing all the nips and tucks it could to try to keep the car going until a successor could be found.

However, there was a big bonus with the S3 that you didn't get with any of its predecessors. And that was what was under its long, tapering bonnet. Jaguar had developed a rather glorious 5.3-litre V12 engine intended for the XJ12. But fitting it in the E-type first was a handy way of proving its reliability. With 272bhp on tap, it was a wonderful way of guiding the E-type through its twilight years. And although the V12-powered machines lacked the frantic charisma of the earlier six-cylinder cars, they now had a sophisticated refinement instead that made them excellent GT cruisers. Maybe an earlier E-type could run rings around them in a shorter cross-country blast, but when it came to charging across entire countries on motorways, an S3 was by far the superior choice.
The V12 model stayed in production for just three- and-a-half years until supplanted by the XJ-S. During that time, 14,983 examples were built, with most of the cars going to the United States. It was bedevilled by increasing legislation and a fuel crisis that suddenly made cars unable to haul their fuel consumption out of the teens very unattractive. The final 50 made were finished in black and sported a special numbered dashboard plaque bearing the signature of Sir William Lyons. By then, he'd retired as well... truly the end of two great Jaguar eras.
