Car to be at auction 9/17
The Salon Privé Sale 2017
1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster
Lot No.: 254
Registration: TLH 160M
Chassis Number: 1S2283
Engine Number: 7S13122SA
Number of cylinders: 12
Year of Manufacture: 1973
RHD/LHD: Right Hand Drive
Estimate (£): 70,000 - 80,000
This particular manual Jaguar E-type Series III roadster is a home-market right-hand drive car first registered in the UK on 20th September 1973. Finished in the striking colour of pale blue, it has a dark blue leather interior, blue carpets throughout and a black mohair hood.
Having had only three former owners, the current keeper has had the car since 1981 and in his care has had numerous upgrades and work carried out to ensure it remains in good condition. Works over the years have included: a new OPUS ignition system, new Halogen headlamps, new seat covers and carpets, new front and rear bumpers, a new floor-pan, and rebuilt carburettors. At 60,000 miles, the engine received a 'top-end' overhaul.
Supplied with a UK V5c and a solid history file, this cherished, low-owner Series III roadster is now showing 84,000 miles on the odometer and is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.

Car to return to auction 12/17
Lot 112A - 1972 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster
Previous owner for 35 years with bills for £40,000 - UK delivered, manual gearbox
ESTIMATE £65,000- £75,000
Auction True Greats 2017
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number 1S 2283
This wonderful late E-Type was delivered to its first British owner in September of 1973, finished in Pale Blue (Jag 507) with Dark Blue leather interior and a manual gearbox.
With one owner for 35 years, the E-Type has enjoyed much care and attention over the years, to the tune of £40,000. Amongst other items the E-Type has benefitted from an engine overhaul at 60,000 miles, a new Jaguar rear end, new brake discs, calipers, and brake pipes. The cooling system has been improved with new radiators, replacement hoses and a new water pump. The fuel system has been treated to an overhaul of the carburettors, and the fuel pipes replaced, and ignition uprated to an OPUS electronic system. Breathing is improved with a new exhaust manifold, and firing uprated with a new set of NGK spark plugs. The E-Type looks resplendent in its new retrimmed interior with new carpets, new bumpers and other chromework, replacement wheels and spinners and new headlamps.
Now showing 84,000 miles from new (which has been confirmed by the previous owner),
the E-Type is offered with a new tool kit, folder of service history (much of it with specialist Southern Roadworks), and an MOT certificate valid until August 2018. All in all a cracking example of what has rapidly become one of the most desirable variants of the timeless E-Type.
