1973 Jaguar E-type Series III V12 Roadster



We at Motorcartrader.com are pleased to offer another great  Jaguar E-type.  This beautiful Jaguar E-type Series III V12 Roadster was previously owned for over 20 years.  The car was originally built on December 22 of 1972 and dispatched on January 19 of 1973. It currently is finished in its original color combination of white with black interior. Furthermore, it is all matching numbers as per the Jaguar Heritage Certificate.   This is a wonderful driving car with only 46,397 miles which we understand to be original. We have invested over $9,000.00 into this car in late 2017 and early 2018 to improve this car both mechanically and cosmetically.  It needs nothing to be enjoyed as a driver. More detail of work we had done:

  • New steering rack was installed (old one was leaking badly).
  • All soft brake lines were replaced.
  • All new Michelin 205/70/15 tires installed.
  • Valve cover gaskets replaced.
  • Valves adjusted.
  • New vacuum hoses.
  • Oil changed and new filter.
  • Lubrication service.
  • Set timing in engine.
  • Synch and tune carburetors
  • New spark plugs and plug wires
  • Breather hat replaced
  • Electrical wiring gone through under hood and cleaned up.
  • Front timing cover replaced.
  • Replaced all drive belts
  • New complete cooling hose kit installed
  • Compression Test on all 12 cylinders on 1/22/18. The compression is excellent and ranged between 130 psi to 145psi on all 12 cylinders. Great oil pressure as well
  • Fuel service: Fuel tank drained, new fuel pump installed and new fuel lines in trunk.
  • New Full stainless steel exhaust kit installed.
  • Rear cage taken out. All new rear shocks installed
  • All differential mounts replaced
  • Radius arm bushings replaced
  • Differential fluid drained and refilled.
  • Speedometer drive resealed
  • Air conditioning converted to R134a. New receiver drier installed. AC blows cold.
  • The paint was refreshed throughout, buffed, polished and cleaned.

This Jaguar E-type Series III is a great overall car with no rust and is ready to be driven anywhere.  It is very pleasant and easy to drive. It shifts smooth and has good acceleration. The car stops straight and does not fade. The automatics on these cars are so smooth and fun to drive. It is a mistake to pass over these cars because of an automatic until you drive one properly set up and will be pleasantly surprised.  This Jaguar E-type started off its life as a 2+2 and was converted to a roadster earlier on in its life.  This is a nice car to enjoy that anyone can drive with ease and it has already been gone through, so the next owner can drive anywhere.
