This handsome Jaguars paint and trim are in overall excellent order, with some slight blemishes upon close inspection. Overall, the cars bodywork is straight with nice chrome, the engine bay is quite tidy, the battery appears newer and the bumpers are in excellent order.
This big cat rolls on Michelin whitewall radials, size 205/70R14 at all four corners. Each tire surrounds a factory wire wheel with knock offs. The tires are in very good order while the chrome wire knock off wheels are in good shape.
Under the forwardhinged front end (hood, fenders, headlights and front bumper), is the original 5.3L SOHC V12 engine with four ZenithStromberg 175CD2SE carburetors and mated to the original optional BorgWarner threespeed automatic transmission. The engine was originally developed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Driver convenience features include airconditioning, power steering and power disc brakes.
Inside, the dark blue interior is in overall great condition. The Connolly bucket seats are in very good condition, as is the matching Wilton wool carpeting. The headliner is in similar shape while the threespoke steering wheel looks ready to cruise. The instrument panel, with its array of rocker switches and gauges, is in very good order, as are the inner door panels. The horn is inoperable. Completing the interior are the gearshift lever, the long, silver parking brake lever and a aftermarket AM/FM stereo with CD player.
The EType Series 3 was introduced in 1971. The short wheelbase FHC body style was discontinued, with the Series 3 available only as a convertible and 2+2 coup. The newly used longer wheelbase now offered significantly more room in all directions. The Series 3 is easily identifiable by the large crossslatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tires, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12.
