Although early history is unknown, this V12 Roadster it is believed to have had only three-owners from new. It’s current condition clearly shows the care and love it has received to date. It presents as one of the finest we have had throughout the years. This E-Type has always been well-taken care of, serviced and maintained regardless of use. Many late Series III E-Types were produced with the automatic transmission, this example is a factory original 4-speed manual as desired by most E-Type V12 enthusiasts.
During its previous collector ownership, this E-Type enjoyed over $39,000 in mechanical and cosmetic servicing. Modifications included earlier type European chrome bumpers replacing the original USA-spec large rubber bumperettes, a superb bare metal repaint in original color, a new fuel pump, new exhaust manifolds, new tires, replacement clutch hydraulics and new cloth top with matching boot cover. Just recently, we have serviced the air conditioning and the carburetors. As the factory USA induction system utilized a setup of four Zenith-Stromberg carburetors, this V12 has been uprated with a new set of SU carburetors. This E-Type drives and sounds as good as it looks.
Since the extensive service work, this V12 Roadster has been part of Tom Papadopoulos’ personal collection. It has been completely gone through and road tested by Autosport Designs, Inc. and is turn-key ready for its next owner to enjoy.
This E-type is accompanied by all recent service receipts, owner’s manual, jack, original spare wheel, knock-off wheel tool and hammer as well as its Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate. As one of the last of the breed, this Series III E-Type presents in superb condition in all areas, cosmetically, mechanically and structurally. It will be sure to provide immediate enjoyment for its next custodian.
