![CDATA[
The E-Type Series III was introduced in 1971, with a new 5.3 litre, V12 engine, uprated brakes and standard power steering. Optionally, an automatic transmission, wire wheels and air conditioning were available. The brand new V12 engine came with four Zenith carburettors and was claimed to produce 272bhp, more torque, and a 0-60mph acceleration of less than seven seconds, which was phenomenal for the price of the car at that time, considering its competition in the market place. The short wheelbase fixedhead coupé body style was discontinued, with the Series III available only as a convertible and 2 2 coupé. The newly used longer wheelbase now offered significantly more room in all directions. These models were easily identifiable by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. It is thought that only 7,990 convertibles and 7,297 fixedhead cars were produced.
This superb right hand drive Jaguar spent many years of its life on Guernsey. The current vendor lived there for a while and brought the car with him when he returned to the mainland. Having owned the car since 1982 and with oceans of family memories, he has decided with a heavy heart that it is time for this E-Type to find a new owner for the first time in nearly forty years. The car was restored in 1985 and again in 2018; the vendor can only be described as fastidious and has always ensured this Series III Roadster is in excellent order. The Primrose coachwork is in superb condition as is all of the brightwork and, with good consistent panel gaps, it is clear the restoration work has been carried out to a high standard. The chrome wire wheels are unmarked and she sits on a very good set of tyres. Fitted with manual transmission we are advised she drives as good as she looks. Supplied with a UK V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate without advisories valid until 3rd June 2022, together with a good history folder. This is a delightful example of an evocative British sportscar and what better way to celebrate 60 years of the Jaguar E-Type launch.
