This example, chassis # UD1S21377; according to the original window sticker, which is included in the sale, this car was distributed by Falvey Motor Sales Co. to Jaguar Cleveland Motors of Cleveland Heights, Ohio in early 1973. It's original cost when delivered to its first caretaker, a Mr. Wally Zaremba, for only $9,469.90 on April 21st, 1973. It was optioned new with chrome wire wheels, whitewall tires, tinted glass and air conditioning. It was also delivered new exactly as presented today in British Racing Green with a Tan interior, Tan top, perhaps the best possible combination for an authentic British sports car. Mr. Zaremba owned and enjoyed his E-Type for many years, driving it seldom around his home in Fairview Park, Oio. It was driven seldom, but always cared for - both in its storage, as well as its servicing. Its records are present from the 1980s and up through 2000. During June of 2000 Mr. Zaremba's 27 year ownership was passed along to this fantastic E-Types next caretaker, a local Ft. Lauderdale collector who has kept and enjoyed the car since 2000. During this time, the car received a light respray in the original color and was completed to a very high standard. The seats were recovered and the car was entrusted to the professionals at Jag Repairs of Pompano Beach, Florida to carry out thousands of dollars of minor sorting and updating to ensure that this Series III roadster was in perfect order to be driven at a moment's notice. Documentation, including service receipts, is included in the sale. While the paint and brightwork show tremendously well, and the rubber and glass are just as good, the interior is incredibly original. With only the seats having been recovered we can see that the carpets, dash, doors, kick panels and sills are all original and as perfect as one could possibly hope for in a true 25,000 mile example. Every single item on this car is in working order. The V-12 effortlessly starts every time, runs out fantastically, and shows strong oil pressure and holds good temperature. As a car that has never been apart or tampered with, that is largely original under the bonnet and only touched by marque experts, everything is where it should be, well tended to and in good order. The Jaguar has two totally documented ownerships from new, a perfect color combination, plus an options list that is remarkable; but perhaps most impressive is this examples originality and low miles. As a true, documented and very real 25,000 mile car, this E-Type can be described as a very good honest car, never a rough or rusty car that was brought back from the dead. It presents today as it always has from day one, a very good, straight, original metal, and solid car with incredibly high marks of originality down to correct Red Primer in places from the factory, totally matching numbers, original paint in the engine bay and door jams as well as chalk markings, factory stamping and overall an experience that exudes correctness and originality; a very rare thing. The high quality respray shows well on great fitting panels, straight down the sides with excellent gaps and overall, this a superb example that has been cosmetically restored with originality in mind. Included is every single document delivered with the car on day one, including (but not limited to): original window sticker, warranty information, registration, mileage statements, repair manual, lots of Jaguar care information and other interesting items. The jack, spare, hammer, and bag are all still present and the car overall has been remarkably well cared for and kept by two enthusiast and caring owners.
