This Home Market Series III E-type was built July 1973 and despatched via Howells, Cardiff, Wales. The car would remain in the UK until 1985 when it was imported in to Germany.

During 1991 and 1992 the Jaguar was the subject of a complete nut-and-bolt, body restoration, including a repaint in British Racing Green with contrasting black trim. Further work was undertaken in 2002, this time focusing on the mechanicals. Its V12 engine was subject to a complete rebuild by Mauss in Koln Germany, whilst the gearbox was similarly subject to an overhaul. All of this work is documented in 100s of photographs.

Extensively serviced 2014 including attending to some minor corrosion on the bonnet, replacement of the rear swing arms and also the fitment of a new clutch.

Now repatriated to its birthplace, this V12 is in fantastic condition having clearly been cherished and well maintained throughout its life. The final incarnation of the iconic Jaguar E-Type, and as a result the most developed of them all, is a superb European cruiser, and this one stands head and shoulders above the rest.
