The E-type is seen by many people as one of the most beautiful cars of all time. Of course that is a matter of taste, but we are the last to say that we do not agree with that opinion. The Jaguar E-Type Series 3 was the most refined and polished version of the Jaguar E-Type. This copy was delivered new in 1974 in America. In those years Jaguar did good business in the USA and this silver-grey V12 was also delivered ‘on the other side of the pond’.

A silver-grey E-type is always good, it shows off the lines of the car in a graceful and elegant way. This Jaguar has been given a new coat of paint in the past and looks neat. There are some small traces of use here and there. A beautiful copy to enjoy immensely and to use the convertible a lot. The dark blue linen shade is in new condition and fits nicely everywhere. The chrome moldings and chrome bumpers are also only in very good condition, something that also applies to the chrome wire wheels.

You might have expected it when you read that the linen cover is dark blue: the interior has the same color. Dark blue leather in a very supple and healthy condition. The color is deep and the seats sit as they should: very good. The dashboard is also very neat. The instruments are, of course, all from Smiths and accurately reflect the important functions of the car. The also dark blue carpets have already been renewed and fit neatly everywhere. Extra pleasant is the rarely present air conditioning.

The E-type is powered by a 5.3 liter V12 engine, which in this case is coupled to an automatic transmission. The engine produces 272 hp. The chassis and brakes are also top-notch and make driving this E-type a pleasure. When the carburetors supply the 5.3 liter V12 engine with the correct mixture of fuel and air, enormous torque is released and the Jaguar is propelled with a force and manner that rivals that of a modern car. The technical condition of the Jaguar can therefore only be described as very good.

Although the Series 3 has always been somewhat in the shadow of the series 1 and 2 and was labeled by enthusiasts as the least beautiful E-Type, connoisseurs know better. The Jaguar E-Type Series 3 is the fighting e-type. This copy is such an example of a car that is in excellent condition but also very suitable to enjoy.
