    Grew up in England. Started out with a BSA Rocket Gold Star at age 16 and lived to tell about it. Moved on to a Mini Cooper, followed by a Ford Cortina GT. Let slip through my fingers a 61 Lotus Elite. Also had a Bond Bug for a while. I came to the US in 1976. and bought my E Type in 1999.

    I'm not usually one for mods but that's very nicely done.

    I have been looking for a while for someone who has removed the unsightly grille from a series 3. It looks perfect, makes you wonder what posessed them to put the grille in in the first place. Is that the original bonnet? I love the series 1 headlights too. very nice. I would eliminate chin air scoop too.

    The car has now been relocated to California and converted to fuel injection courtesy of AJ6 Engineering in the UK

    I agree with the comments about the nose, I never liked the "tarted up" nose treatment of the SIII,and wanted to take mine back to the simpler SI look. The bonnet is stock SIII, with the headlight covers coming from Germany.

    The car has multiple upgrades including fuel injection, more aggressive cams, stainless headers, 9.25:1 compression (for US pump gas), aluminium flywheel, 5 speed, uprated torsion bars/sway bar/shocks, Wilwood calipers/cross drilled/ventilated disks, 245X40X18 modern tires on Component wheels, aluminium radiator/overflow, Mercedes air conditioning compressor, and even electric window winders (up/down controls hidden in the ashtray....) Also has the hardtop color matched to the car

    Car is great fun to drive.

    Car now offered at:

    Sellers description:
    1973 Jaguar E Type V12 roadster
    Fantastic opportunity - car totally restored and upgraded in the CJ Workshops 2001/02

    This stunning E Type was totally restored in the Classic Jaguar workshops almost 15 years ago. Driven less than 1,000 miles per year since we handed the keys over to its proud owner, it remains in absolutely superb condition. To say that the restoration has stood the test of time would be a huge understatement. Other than a small chip on the right hand cowl (touched in) and a barely noticeable micro blister on the rear edge of the boot lid, the paintwork looks as if it was done 15 months (not years) ago.

    Mechanically the car runs and drives beautifully, benefiting from numerous performance and reliability upgrades, as follows:
    High performance Stage One CJ engine rebuild
    Fuel injection
    5 speed transmission
    Tuned SS CJ headers
    Wilwood brakes with cross drilled and vented rotors and braided lines throughout
    Adjustable CJ shocks
    Uprated CJ torsion bars
    Uprated CJ sway bar
    Poly suspension bushings
    CJ alloy radiator and expansion tank with silicone hoses
    Billet rack mounts
    18 x 8 Compomotive wheels with new Bridgestone Potenza tires
    Whalsinn enclosed headlamp kit
    Electric windows
    Upgraded air conditioning

    This amazing E Type is quite well known on the JCNA show circuit, having won numerous Best in Class awards, as well as a National Championship in 2005, and placing second nationally in 2004. A stack of concours trophies accompanies the car, as does a photographic booklet detailing the entire restoration process. This car could not be replicated for twice the asking price. It is only being offered for sale because the owner is retiring abroad.

    Price: $145,000

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
