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' Coup. These later cars are easily distinguished from their six-cylinder predecessors by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, a pronounced 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 andleather-rimmedsteering 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. Approximately 7,990 Series 3 Roadsters were sold worldwide before production ceased in 1975.We are pleased to offer this original right-hand drive, manual gearbox,UK-supplied 1973 E-Type Series 3 Roadster which, according to its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, was built on 23/02/1973 finished in Signal Red with a black leather interior, a black hood and chrome wire wheels. It was dispatched to Clark & Lambert in Eastbourne and initially registered as JNJ 701L, the registration number it still carries today. From the cars extensive history file we can see that it was exported to Switzerland in 1984 returning to the UK in 1997. Its been with its current custodian for seven years, however, prior to this was subject to a full restoration and engine rebuild in the late nineties to a superb level with patent attention to detail as is evident by the factory gap panel fit and the well-presented underside and engine bay. In more recent years its been maintained by marque specialists P & K Thornton and David Marks and invoices include one for a gearbox rebuild at 7,800 miles. The odometer was 'zeroed' at the point of restoration and the current indicated mileage is 8,201. The car has been used lightly over recent years and an MOT from 2001 details the mileage as 6,905 meaning this remarkable Series 3 has covered less than 1,300 miles since then, although regularly MOT'd.It'saccompanied by an excellent Owners File which contains many invoices from Switzerland and the UK, its Heritage Certificate, an original Jaguar Operations Manual, old MOTs and details of the restoration.In E-Type terms, this lovely example seems to tick all the boxes; UK-supplied, right-hand drive, manual gearbox, matching numbers, Signal Red, chrome wires, good history, Heritage Certificate, fully restored, in lovely condition and sensibly guided.You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 16th and 30th July.
