The car was stripped completely back to a bare shell which was in amazingly good condition. Some minor panel work was carried out to the existing tub and the major panel change was to purchase and refit a brand new bonnet.

The wiring harness was reconditioned and replaced in full along with any electrical components required.

All of the chrome was removed, re-plated and replaced as required.

The complete interior of the vehicle was replaced in Sherwood Green with a contrasting mohair hood and mohair hood bag.

In 1971, the E-type would receive its most far-ranging changes. Walter Hassan, one of Britain's pre-eminent postwar engineers and mastermind behind the Coventry Climax Formula 1 engines, worked with Jaguar technical boss Harry Mundy to produce an all-new V12 designed for maximum smoothness and consequently, the Series III became Jaguar's first production V12-powered car. The V12 was only 36kg heavier than the straight-six, handling balance wasn't too drastically affected, and the top speed was still approaching 150 mph, however, the new car did not sit too well with diehard E-Type fans. Amongst the criticisms, it was felt that the front-end styling with its prominent chrome grille lacked the grace of the earlier cars, the suspension was too soft, and it had become a 'cruiser' rather than a sports car. Jaguar, however, was not unduly concerned. Success in motorsport (in the UK) was no longer driving sales and the, somewhat tricky, US market had become essential to the E-Type's survival. What Jaguar did not anticipate was the way that the new car's 'approachability' would appeal to a whole new breed of customer here in the UK. Company executives trundling to work in their Rovers or Ford Granadas realised that the Series 3 with its automatic box, comfortable cockpit, stress-free engine, compliant ride, and general good manners was a viable alternative as a 'daily driver' and once again showroom doors started swinging.
Such was the case with the first owner of this lovely 1973 V12 E-Type. He was acting as a solicitor for a client in Bristol and was persuaded to consider an E-Type, and this he duly did, culminating in the purchase of OHW 678M from Henleys in exchange for £3,582.92. The car was collected on 22nd August 1973 and the Heritage Certificate and original invoice (both with the car) show that it was a manual gearbox car finished in British Racing Green with a Biscuit interior and was fitted with Sundym Glass and Automatic Seatbelts by the factory, and Reflective Number Plates and a Mirror by the dealer.
To begin with, the Jaguar was used regularly, with routine servicing, until in the early eighties, with the arrival of a family, two seats were impractical and the E-Type was used less.Within the history file, there is an MoT Certificate showing that in September 1977 the car had covered 18,455 miles. By the time we got to the mid-90s, it was hardly used at all apart from the occasional run. The car was always kept in the owner's garage in Pinner and still looked very presentable, however, the decision was taken in 2012 that "it would be worthwhile having the car completely overhauled and brought up to a very high standard" and consequently 'The Carriage Company' in Bedfordshire was instructed to do the necessary work.
A total restoration commenced in late 2012 and the details, invoices and a full photographic history are in the file. Sadly, after the majority of the restoration had been completed, the owner was unable to collect the car and he instructed the Carriage Company to market his E-Type Our vendor became involved and managed to buy the Jaguar. In order to progress the project, he ordered a complete respray in BRG and as the car was not fully trimmed at this stage, he decided that he would like the interior in Sage Green which complements the BRG really well and this was the final touch, in what turned out to be, a showpiece restoration.
He also managed to locate an original factory hardtop which was painted to match the car, fully restored with new brightwork, lined with the original factory-finish material, and now looks superb. When the car was ready, earlier this year, it was registered appropriately CAT 94K', a nod to its feline lines, and this, the trim colour, and the hardtop are the only differences between now and August 1973.

This amazing Jaguar will be supplied with its original Jaguar Passport, handbook, owners manual, service centre guide and wallet, the original Henlys Bill of Sale, the Heritage Certificate, original brochures, two sets of keys, Mot, V5s, extensive history files with photos and full details of the work completed during the restoration.

This gleaming V12 E-Type is effectively one owner and 28,500 warranted miles from new. Finding another with such originality and provenance would be very difficult, if not impossible.

To be offered by Silverstone Auctions at 'The May Sale' Silverstone Circuit, Northampton, NN12 8TN on the 19th May 2018.

1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster

Registration no. CAT 94K

Chassis no. 1S2023

A solicitor, this E-Type's first owner purchased the car from Henlys, collecting it on 22nd August 1973. Originally registered 'OHW 678M', the car comes with the original sales invoice and a Heritage Certificate, the latter confirming that it left the factory equipped with manual transmission and was finished in British Racing Green with a Biscuit interior. Sundym glass and automatic seatbelts were fitted by the factory, reflective numberplates and a mirror by the dealer. The Jaguar was used regularly and routinely serviced until in the early 1980s when the arrival of a family necessitated transport with more than two seats. The E-Type was used less frequently thereafter. An MoT on file shows that by September 1977 the car had covered 18,455 miles, while by the mid-1990s it was hardly used at all apart from the occasional outing. It was always kept garaged and still looked very presentable.

In 2012, at 28,400 miles, it was decided to have the car completely overhauled, and marque specialists The Carriage Company of Silsoe, Bedfordshire were commissioned to undertake the restoration. Work commenced in late 2012, and details, invoices, and a full photographic record of the rebuild are on file. Sadly, as the restoration was nearing completion, the owner's circumstances changed and he instructed The Carriage Company to offer the car for sale.

The next owner ordered a complete re-spray in British Racing Green and had the interior re-trimmed in complementary Sage Green, this being the finishing touch to what had become a showpiece restoration. In addition, an original factory hardtop was obtained, restored to correct specification, and painted to match the car, which was reregistered with the appropriate plate 'CAT 94K' on the restoration's completion in 2018. The E-Type has belonged to the current (third) owner since July of that year.

As well as the aforementioned documentation and restoration records, the extensive history files contain the original Jaguar Passport, owner's handbook, service centre guide, and wallet; original brochures; two sets of keys; MoT certificates; and V5 registration documents. With only a few owners - the first for 44 years - low mileage and excellent provenance, this freshly restored Roadster has to be one of the very best Series 3 E-Types currently available.
