The example you see here is not only a rare surviving RHD Series 3 E-Type Roadster (fitted with the more desirable manual gearbox) but also one with a fascinating history. Despatched from the works on 7th June 1972 to Henleys and sold by Charles Follet of London W1, our E-Type was delivered new to the Honourable John Lyttelton (11th Viscount Cobham), specified in Willow Green with a Beige Interior.
The E-Type was later acquired by Mr. Kevin Keegan, England footballer, manager, and keen Jaguar devotee. As a player in the 1970s and 1980s, Keegan has been described as "arguably the first superstar English player to attract the modern media spotlight". Keegan played for several clubs including Liverpool, Southampton and Hamburger SV, going on to manage Newcastle United, Fulham and Manchester City, winning promotion as champions in his first full season at all three clubs. Keegan later managed England from 1999 to 2000.
After Keegan's ownership the car became part of a large London-based collection distributed around various rented garages in the capital. Upon acquiring the vehicle, our vendor was able to trace the previous registration document with Keegan's name on it. The mileage displayed is 29,000 recorded from new, which whilst cannot be verified, is believed to be correct having inspected the condition of the mechanicals.
This genuine, original, E-type is offered in the same colour as when it left the factory, with the original steel wheels and beautiful factory panel gaps. Whilst we are unable to guarantee this, the vendor is hopeful that with new brakes, tyres, a full service and a good clean, the E-Type could be pressed once more into service.
It is really welcoming to see such a nice genuine example of what is rapidly becoming one of the most popular of the E-Type variants, and our case one with both an interesting history and an exciting future.

I sold this Jaguar E Type when I was a salesman at Wadham Stringer
dealership in The Avenue Southampton. I used to supply all his cars including the Sponsorship Jaguar XJ 5.3HE and the Range Rover all supplied by the manufacturer.
He also had the number plate KK33 supplied by Faberg’e for the BRUT 33 advert he used to do with Henry Cooper.
He had just been signed by Southampton F.C from Hamburg
