Dreamspec would like to offer This Jaguar E-Type Series 3 Roadster manual uk car which is a remarkable example of the final series benefiting from a comprehensive restoration. The odometer shows just 28,939 miles, which is warranted by a letter in the file from the first owner as providence.
first registered in1973 this E-TYPE was purchased initially by a solicitor,and supplied by Henlys in Bristol.
An official production record trace certificate from jaguar heritage trust confirms the original spec as British racing green with a factory manual gearbox.
The first owner kept the car for around 40 years of its life. From around 1980 it was used very sparingly, and from the mid-1990s it was mostly kept off road and was stored in pinner hill,so this E-TYPE was very well preserved.
In 2012, the first owner decided to treat the car to a total restoration to bring it up to a very very high standard,and they commissioned The carriage company to complete the work.Invoices i have plus photos gallery illustrate the extent of the rebuild.
It is understood that a change of owners circumstances meant that the car was subsequently sold on part way through the refurbishment ,and that the restoration was completed under the instruction of the cars (SECOND OWNER). The total cost of the work is understood to have been £88,000.
A full strip down and repaint of the body shell was carried out,in the original colour of British racing green.
Furthermore, a rare original factory hardtop was sourced .All the chrome was stripped and re-plated or replaced,the under body was refurbished, and all the wire wheels were renewed with all the interior being completely re trimmed to a very high standard to complement the exterior hue.
The hardtop was also reupholstered, with the headlining to the original jaguar specification. Its soft top mohair hood replaced. It is understood that the dashboard and the switch-gear were all in good order given the very low miles,its steering wheel is believed to be original to the car and has a charming patina . The car has just been serviced and reported to be in fine mechanical order. During the previous rebuild, the v12 engine was substantially overhauled plus all its ancillaries including a new stainless exhaust,suspension,braking system,and wheel-hubs,carbs overhauling or replacing components whenever needed.A new clutch and master cylinder fitted along with front and rear shocks.
