This gorgeous Series 3 was the subject of a major restoration by Eagle Engineering in the late 1980s whilst in the hands of the previous owner. There is an invoice on file from Eagle Racing for £23,125 plus bills from Classic Coachbuilders of Sittingbourne from 1988. It received a new bonnet from Fullbridge Engineering in 2014. There is a Service Record and Warranty book that covers from 1988 at 37,740 miles to 1996 at 43,180 miles, and MoTs back to 1988 that appear to confirm the current mileage of 50,676. There is a current MoT valid until September 2019.
Purchased by the Vendor in 2015 he then sent the car to Jaguar Heritage Garage and spent £10,644 on cooling hoses and a replacement fan, reconditioning of the trailing arms, repairing minor corrosion, replacement of the frame mounts, and suspension bushes, a new windscreen, replacement seat cushions in original leather and a full service.
The wire wheels currently on the car were also purchased in 2015 although the original Jaguar wheels are included in the sale although the buyer will need to arrange for collection.
Also included in the file are Series 3 Handbook, Parts Catalogue from 1974, Wiring diagram and Lubrication charts and a Repair Manual from 1971.
Overall this is a attractive and well cared for Jaguar with a comprehensive file and unusually low mileage. As can be seen in the photos it presents well in Royal Blue and grey leather, and sports a working sunroof which was a rare factory option. Having covered an average of 350 miles per year for the past 27 years it has been used just regularly enough to maintain it’s great condition.
