An original, UK-supplied Series 3 E-Type Jaguar that stands head and shoulders above the competition. Purchased in 2013, not just as a project, but as a project worthy of a restoration that would go above and beyond the norm. With the rebuild commencing in 1999, headway was made until things faltered and the car was mothballed until 2006 at which point a further six years of restoration were to follow. The standard of finish has to be seen to be believed and is a credit to the craftsmen that have returned this Jaguar to the road. Finished in its original shade of Silver with a matching hardtop, the attention to detail is rarely achieved, and with its 5.3-litre power unit now running injection backed up by a five-speed Getrag gearbox, this car gleams from stem to stern. The quality of the external finish is such that from a distance it looks like polished Aluminium. The interior is finished in dark blue hide with a matching dark blue Mohair hood and the whole car is detailed to within an inch of its life, be that under the bonnet, internally or underneath.
Upgrades include a fully balanced engine on injection with lightened flywheel, high torque starter, dynamic engine damper, an AP clutch, plus attention to the cooling and braking system, adjustable rack and pinion steering, the digital odometer recording a distance of less that 1,500 miles since completion, the bespoke stainless steel exhaust system and much more.
Accompanied by a comprehensive history file including restoration photographs, invoices and a Heritage Certificate, this is one Jaguar that will please the most pedantic and, in our humble opinion, a Series 3 E-Type in this colour combination with a hard top in place ticks all the boxes and then some.
