The Series 3 E-Type was introduced in 1971. To ensure the E-Type continued to appeal to the US-market (Jaguar’s biggest buyer), the wheelbase was lengthened, power steering was added as well as Jaguar’s brand new roadgoing V12 engine. These changes made the E-Type a much more comfortable and capable grand tourer. To keep the E-Type in tune with 1970s design, flared wheel arches were added and a redesigned enclosed grille as well as other, more subtle changes.
This 1971 Series 3 OTS was fully restored by us in 2016 and completed with no expense spared. A huge number of our upgrades were specified to transform this Series 3 into a true sports car. The original Heritage Certificate colours of White with Red interior were changed to Carmen Red with Tan interior, an original Jaguar combination.
To increase the ease of use in the owner’s residence of Guernsey, this US-supplied E-Type was converted to RHD. In the pursuit of sports car performance, we also converted the car to a 5-speed manual, a million miles from the original automatic. The other upgrades applied to this stunning Series 3 E-Type are as follows: electronic fuel injection with modified crank seal, rear coilovers, uprated front shocks with stiffer antiroll bar and torsion bars, new power steering rack with much improved feel, AP front discs and calipers with uprated servo, full Haywood & Scott sports exhaust system, alloy radiator with cooling fans and Samco hoses, original style radio rebuilt with MP3 interface, deep-dish 16-inch wire wheels, moto-lita steering wheel.
Having completed only 900 miles since restoration and used only on dry days, this V12 E-Type is still in perfect condition. A stunning car and a very rare opportunity to buy an exceedingly high-spec and high-performance Series 3 E-Type, most definitely the best on the market.
The registration number is not included, the car will come with an age-related registration number.
