1974 Jaguar E-Type V12 Series III Roadster

TSN 332M is a genuine RHD home market UK specification Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster. The car was registered on 4th September 1973 and is a low mileage example recording just 58,000 miles with MOT certificates supporting the mileage back to 1984 at 46,553 miles. The E-Type has the highly desirable manual transmission and is finished in an excellent colour combination of British Racing Green with Biscuit upholstery and excellent chrome wire wheels with Pirelli tyres. The E-Type has a Black mohair hood and matching hood cover and the boot is lined correctly with Biscuit trim to match the inside of the car.

This outstanding E-Type presents superbly and we can confirm the car is in top class condition throughout. The bodywork is truly exceptional with beautiful straight panels and excellent gaps. The car has a stunning, clean underside and inner wheel arches are pristine. The bulkhead and space frame are in excellent condition with no corrosion issues and the bonnet is also first class. The spare wheel well is presented in excellent order and is painted correctly in body colour. This British Racing Green paintwork is exceptional with a stunning glass finish that is perfectly complimented by stunning chrome work and the excellent wheels. This is a perfectly straight E-Type Roadster that has been finished to an exceptional standard and many UK examples in this order can command well over a six figure sum.

The upholstery is truly stunning. On first glance the interior trim could be mistaken for almost new, but on closer inspection its clear this is a beautifully aged, high quality interior that has been superbly well cared for. The leather seats are beautiful, the carpets have nicely aged and door cards and dash board are excellent. The steering wheel is excellent, as are the correct dials, chrome interior trims and rubber seals. The glass is in excellent order and everything functions and works correctly as expected.

On the road TSN 332M does not disappoint. The V12 E-Type is comfortable, quick, easy to drive and absolutely ideal for long distance touring.  The power assisted steering is light, the brakes are sharp and efficient, the suspension in excellent order and from looking under the bonnet its clear the suspension and brake components are all in excellent order and have even been kept in excellent cosmetic order. The V12 engine is top class with exciting performance, excellent oil pressure and correct cooling. The four speed manual gearbox is faultless and the rear axle superb. The E-Type is very quick and has to be driven to be fully appreciated. The car is wonderful on the road, its quiet, free from squeaks, knocks and rattles and is amongst the very best driving E-Type's we see.

The E-Type has been with its last owner for thirteen years and previous to that the car was with one owner from the early/mid 1990's. The E-Type only records three former keepers from new and comes with a comprehensive file of receipts, MOT certificates and tax discs. The file of receipts show the vehicle has been particularly well maintained and having covered around 12,000 miles since 1984, we know the car has spent more time being detailed in the garage than used on the road over the past thirty years or so. The E-Type is a truly exceptional car presented in outstanding, usable condition and will prove a fabulous buy for someone looking to use their E-Type and spend time ensuring its kept in its current superb condition both inside and outside, both cosmetically and mechanically.
