For XKE's third and final chapter, Jaguar unveiled a nearly
entirely new car representing a drastic leap forward for the
flagship sports car. Jaguar's signature model evolved from a
race-bred sports car into a luxurious and highly capable grand
tourer. Lower, wider, and longer than the outgoing SII, the biggest
change was shoehorned under the bonnet in the form of an all-new
5.3-liter V12 engine. Powerful and with unparalleled refinement,
the Series III took the XKE into new territory. This 1972 2+2 Coupe
is an outstanding example of the Series III, restored to a level
rarely seen on fixed-head versions. It is finished in an attractive
period-correct livery of Pale Primrose over biscuit hides, and
desirably equipped with 4-speed manual gearbox and factory air
conditioning. As a '72 model, it also features the preferred chrome
bumpers and early-type overriders which allow for a clean
uncluttered look, highlighted by excellent chrome wire wheels shod
with Michelin XWX tires. The older restoration is well-maintained
and authentically presented, down to the period-correct radio,
detailed engine compartment, and accompanying factory jack. This
vehicle just arrived, and a full description is coming soon. Please
contact Hyman Ltd for more details. Offers welcome and trades
considered For additional details please view this listing directly
