1972 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Coupe / Registration Number: HGF 405K / Chassis Number: 1S51034BW / Engine Number: 7S6033SA / Transmission: Automatic / Steering: Right Hand Drive / Colour: Powder Blue / MOT Test Expiry: Exempt / Road Tax Exempt / Guide: £50000 - 55000 // The early sixties was remembered by some for the frightening Cuban Missile Crisis, but there were those so smitten by the all new E-Type Jaguar which appeared in 1961that it may have taken their minds off the potential unfolding horror. Certainly that memorable first look at the new svelte shape, from what was always a popular manufacturer of sporting machinery, was burned into young minds for many years to come. We offer here the chance to acquire one of these fabulous machines, albeit at a later stage of development, still to die for, and a glorious V12 engine of some five litres attached to an automatic gearbox. A genuine Grand Tourer capable of covering great distances in sublime comfort. Finished in refreshed powder blue paintwork with excellent chrome fittings and trimmed in navy blue leather with a delicious display of instruments and switches, over which a magnificent long louvred bonnet disappears invitingly into the foreground, urging you to make use of the right hand pedal accordingly. A true Siren inviting a motoring experience not often offered elsewhere in this superb condition. In the same ownership since 2010, and with a photographed restoration carried out earlier in 1989 which has clearly lasted very well indeed, this beautiful sports car comes with the V5C registration certificate showing but two previous owners, together with a repair manual, service handbook, invoices and parts list, plus the Jaguar Heritage Certificate and correspondence. Opportunity we are told, seldom strikes twice.
