1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster

This Home Market Series III E-type was built July 1973 and despatched via Howells, Cardiff, Wales. The car would remain in the UK until 1985 when it was imported in to Germany.

During 1991 and 1992 the Jaguar was the subject of a complete nut-and-bolt, body restoration, including a repaint in British Racing Green with contrasting black trim. Further work was undertaken in 2002, this time focusing on the mechanicals. Its V12 engine was subject to a complete rebuild by Mauss in Koln Germany, whilst the gearbox was similarly subject to an overhaul. All of this work is documented in 100s of photographs.

Extensively serviced 2014 including attending to some minor corrosion on the bonnet, replacement of the rear swing arms and also the fitment of a new clutch.

Now repatriated to its birthplace, this V12 is in fantastic condition having clearly been cherished and well maintained throughout its life. The final incarnation of the iconic Jaguar E-Type, and as a result the most developed of them all, is a superb European cruiser, and this one stands head and shoulders above the rest.

Pendine specialise in the sale of historic cars for road and track. Whilst focusing specifically on the immediate post-war period through to the 1970s, our experience ranges from Edwardian racers through to the supercars of the 1990s. The company is named after Pendine sands, the 7 mile stretch of beach on the south coast of Wales that was the setting for Britain claiming and retaining the land speed record in the 1920s. The record runs started with Malcom Campbell in 1924, Parry Thomas with ‘Babs’ in 1926 and finally Campbell again in the first Bluebird in 1927. In the spirit of those pioneer racers, our mission at Pendine is to become the leaders in our field, breathing fresh life into the historic car market as we go.
