Delivered new on the 24th August 1973, this Series 3 V12 E-Type Roadster was supplied by authorised Jaguar agent; The Reigate Garage Limited. As denoted in the original JAGUAR PASSPORT TO SERVICE (service booklet) the first registered owner was A.J. Percy (Builders) Ltd of Reigate, Surrey. It is not known for how long Percy’s retained the car but by August 1976 it was in the hands of well known dealer Hexagon of Highgate and, as identified in the original sales ledger, they sold the car to the third owner; Mr P.J. Murphy of Finchley for £4,995. Mr Murphy retained the car until October 2011 when it was sold to a Mr Tovey from Watford and he undertook a series of light restorative works including a full respray and new hood before the current keeper acquired the car earlier this year via Vintage & Prestige in Hemel Hempstead. Since purchase it has benefitted from a thorough service by highly regarded specialists Sigma Engineering to the tune of £4,263.68 and works included a brake system overhaul, suspension bush replacement, coolant flush and header tank replacement and a full service and set up on the rolling road. Amazingly and largely thanks to the 35 year ownership stint with Mr Murphy this highly original E-Type roadster displays just over 23,800 miles on the odometer and this is accounted for by the service book and the MOTs on file, a summary of which is below; PDI 23.08.73 The Reigate Garage Limited 865 miles 05.12.73 The Reigate Garage Limited 2,507 miles 19.09.74 Page Motors 6,229 miles 11.05.76 Dina Motor Engineers Ltd 9,948 miles 8.9.77 Henlys (London Service) Ltd 12,427 miles 10.03.81 The Auto Reliant Suspension Co. 13,694 miles 04.04.85 The Auto Reliant Suspension Co. 16,788 miles 28.07.87 MOT 16,793 miles 07.08.87 Chipplemead Motor Repairs 17,352 miles 17.12.88 MOT 17,810 miles 17.04.90 MOT 18,126 miles 21.10.91 MOT 18,495 miles 01.07.93 MOT 18,709 miles 20.08.94 MOT 19,029 miles 22.12.95 MOT 19,951 miles 02.04.97 MOT 20,534 miles 06.06.98 MOT 20,725 miles 09.06.99 MOT 21,393 miles 22.05.00 MOT 21,790 miles 22.05.01 MOT 22,485 miles 22.10.06 Steiner Automotive 22,485 miles 24.10.06 MOT 22,712 miles 15.11.07 MOT 22,965 miles 19.11.08 MOT 23,243 miles 10.04.10 MOT 23,417 miles 19.07.11 MOT 23,486 miles 26.07.12 MOT Whilst the paint and hood had deteriorated to the point of requiring renewal, thankfully the original interior has survived very well indeed and is the real centre point of this charming example.
