1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster

This top class driving manual E-Type was imported from the United States in 1990 and converted to RHD. The car came to the UK in very original condition with stunning black leather upholstery and a fine standard of paint in the cars original colour of Turquoise. The car was sold to a Doctor in 1996 with a guaranteed mileage of 42,000 from new. The E-Type was maintained by a West Yorkshire classic car specialist and covered around 6500 miles in twelve years of ownership. CCA 47M spent most of 2008 garaged and was then taken through MOT in early 2009. Recent work includes stripping and removing the rear axle and fitting new brake callipers, pads, handbrake pads and a new set of subframe mountings. Other work included a new steering rack, brake servo and overhauled starter motor. The recent expenditure totals to around £2,500. Since this re-commissioning work, the E-Type has been used throughout the summer covering around 2,000 trouble free miles. The mileage now reads 50,500 and with such superb original upholstery, it is clear to see this car has been very well cared for and maintained.

Our Series III V12 is outstanding on the road with a perfect engine with high oil pressure. The performance is exceptional and the original four speed manual gearbox is perfect to use. The car starts instantly with no knocks, rattles or smoke coming from the engine. The car pulls extremely well and is a real joy to drive. The body and underside of the vehicle is straight, solid and very presentable. The car has clearly never had any rust issues and has a lovely paint finish that gives a nice honest feel to the car. Chrome work is bright and the chrome wire wheels are in good condition, as is the hood.

If you are looking for a perfect driving E-Type V12 in a condition where it can be driven anywhere, this is the car to buy. With originality, low mileage and great looks, CCA 47M offers fantastic value in the ever popular E-Type market.
