Description

1972 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12 Roadster
Registration no. PTK 1K
Chassis no. 1S1200

Testing the E-Type Series 3 back in 1972, Road & Track magazine reckoned the new V12 power unit, "a sheer delight, by itself almost worth the price of admission. The V12 is a lovely piece of machinery, lovely to listen to and lovely to behold. The exhaust has that hurried sound characteristic of a multiple-cylinder engine where the many explosions per revolution make it sound as if it's running faster than an engine with fewer cylinders. The idle is smooth and quiet with none of the mechanical busyness one normally experiences from the likes of a Ferrari or Lamborghini V12. And the smoothness lingers throughout the rev range".

An original right-hand drive model equipped with the desirable manual transmission, this E-Type V12 roadster was delivered new in the UK in February 1972 to a Mrs Hewitt and comes with its original stamped service booklet, confirming the delivery date new from Henleys and early service history. We are advised that the car has benefited from ongoing refurbishment, some £34,000 having been spent with Southern Classics, and that it comes with an extensive history file containing bills, MoTs, tax discs, and instruction manuals. Noteworthy features include headrests, wire wheels, and a four-branch stainless steel exhaust. The car is offered with a V5C Registration Certificate and MoT to August 2020.
