The Jaguar E-Type Series 3 was the most refined and most polished version of the Jaguar E-type. This example was delivered new in December 1973 in Richmond Canada. What is striking is that the complete board folder is supplied with the car and is in new condition. Another striking detail about this Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12 is that it is a car with the beloved manual transmission. The car looks beautiful and has been partly restored in the past
The body of the E-Type looks beautiful and is fitted with nice thin sheet metal with correct fits. The paint is in very good condition. The body has already been reduced to bare metal and looks beautiful. The paint looks beautiful and is in very good condition. The rims are made of steel and are fitted with beautifully chromed hubcaps. The wheels have already been re-chromed and the chrome-plated hubcaps also look beautiful. The car is fitted with good Bridgestone tires in the correct sizes. The convertible top can be operated manually and looks beautiful. The hood is made of vinyl and fits nicely everywhere. Also, the chrome mouldings and chrome bumpers are only in very good condition.
The interior looks beautiful. The carpets have already been renewed and fit neatly everywhere. The dashboard is in good condition, with a state-of-the-art large rocker switch for the time. The instruments, of course, all come from Smith and accurately reflect the vital functions of the car. The leather on the seats has some starting patina and looks neatly cared for. Furthermore, the period-correct Blaupunkt radio stands out and the fact that the top of the dashboard is neatly cared for.
The technology is very well maintained. The engine runs fantastic. The 5.3 litre V12 engine delivers 272 horsepower and effortlessly propels the E-type to speeds well above 200 kilometres per hour. The engine is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The transmission shifts precisely with pleasantly selected gearbox ratios. The brakes and chassis fit perfectly with the sporty nature of the E-type and contribute to the enormous driving pleasure. The Jaguar E-type is typically such a car that is perfectly suited for covering long distances or driving short distances. Whatever your purpose with this car, you’ll enjoy the majestic sound of that 5.3-litre V12 engine filling its four Zenith carburettors with a mixture of fuel and air and catapulting you effortlessly to the horizon.
Although the E-Type Series 3 has always been somewhat in the shadow of the E-Type series 1 and 2 and was labelled by “enthusiasts” as the least beautiful E-Type, the connoisseurs know better. The Jaguar E-Type Series 3 with manual transmission is the best-driving e-type. The car will be delivered including the aforementioned on-board folder and some other information about the time the car spent in Canada. In short, a beautiful Jaguar E-Type Series 3 OTS in a wonderful colour scheme and excellent condition.
