Due to an upcoming business venture I must sell my beloved E Type Series 3 Roadster, This is indeed a very rare E-type to come to the market and benefits from the following:- It is a genuine UK home market right-hand drive car. One of only around 1800 of this model that were produced. Mine being the 925th. It has all matching numbers with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate to prove this. It has manual transmission. It has an original Jaguar factory hardtop (which are as rare as hens teeth and sell for upwards of 5k alone on the open market). It has covered just 46,600 genuine miles. The last owner had the car for 38 years during which time it only covered approximately 6000 miles. The car has been very well maintained by me and the previous owner with numerous bills and records of restoration work. In my ownership the following work has been completed during 2018/19:- Engine removal complete stripping of engine bay and ancillaries repainting and rebuilding / detailing. Replacement of clutch slave cylinder. New Alternator Oil and filter services. The following work was carried out by the previous owner:- Renewed all water hoses and clips, new fuel pump and Luminition ignition system. Uprated starter, new exhaust and new clutch master cylinder. Reconditioned radiator, all new shock absorber and complete overhaul by specialist. Two new doors headlamp panels seals, disc brakes and pads four new Pirelli P6000 tyres. Complete respray by Jaguar specialist. New water pump header tank and steering rack. Carburettor service and balance on rolling road, new clutch and flywheel re-face The car comes with the original Jaguar operating and maintenance and service handbook still in its original tan coloured case. The car has never been raced or rallied, it drives beautifully and successfully completed four appearances at the Leon International classic festival in France. In short it’s one of the best Series 3 Roadsters on the market today and if you are looking for the ultimate usable, reliable high performance touring E Type that starts a conversation wherever it goes then this is it!
