Seen at Derek Watson's workshops. Excellent unrestored example with less than 7000 miles. Been bitumen black undersealed years ago which spoils the look ofthe lower areas and some under-bonnet appeal but still appears very sound time-warp car except for new stainless exhaust

Offered at Auction by Bonhams 9th December 2013
1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster
Registration no. TRC 901L Chassis no. 1S1725 Engine no. 7S10199SB
£60,000 - 70,000
A desirable manual transmission model finished in the rare original factory colour scheme of Lavender Blue, this Series III E-Type was first registered on 4th May 1973 and purchased from Mann Egerton of Derby (formerly Sanderson & Holmes, a long established coachbuilding company dating back to Victorian times). Its purchaser was a Mr Arthur Soar, who kept the car until 2004, by which time it had covered only 6,881 dry miles from new. After Arthur Soar's death at the age of 93, the E-Type passed to his son Harold but remained unused in its garage until 2010. In December 2005 the car had been reissued with its original registration 'TRC 901L', having been reregistered as '666 FS' in October 1973.
Towards the end of 2010, the E-Type was despatched to independent Derbyshire-based marque specialists Watjag Ltd (Derek Watson) for extensive re-commissioning (see detailed invoice for £4,760.42 on file). 'TRC 901L' passed to the current owner in March 2011 (purchase receipt available) since when it has been driven to Silverstone, Donington Park, Prescott, the Isle of Man and Cleethorpes, as well as on various club runs in Derbyshire. A little over 4,500 miles has been covered by the vendor, making the total from new 11,533 at time of cataloguing. Items renewed while in the vendor's care include the fuel pump, voltage regulator, clutch master and slave cylinders, and the battery (still under warranty).
'TRC 901L' remains outstandingly original and comes with the full complement of its original factory instruction manuals, service books and warranty documents. We are advised that the bodywork and chrome are in excellent condition; likewise the original navy and black leather interior, which shows minimal wear. Other original items include the carpets, hood, tonneau cover and key ring (with label tag). Even the spare tyre is original, and Mann Egerton's sticker is still on the windscreen.
Additional accompanying documentation consists of Mann Egerton's original sales invoice, JDHT certificate, sundry invoices, SORN declarations (x6), V5C registration document and a substantial quantity of expired MoTs and tax discs dating back to the 1970s. The car also comes with three spare keys and a box of various original parts removed for replacement. Described as in generally excellent condition, 'TRC 901L' represents a rare opportunity to acquire a fully documented, little used and unmolested Series III E-Type Roadster preserved in exceptionally original condition.
