1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V-12 Roadster
Item Details
Description
1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V-12 Roadster
  • Ground-up restoration by Farland Classic Restoration at a cost of over $200,000
  • Two-owner, rust-free Arizona car prior to refurbishment; 41,000 miles indicated
  • Top specification, including a factory hardtop
  • Upgraded with five-speed manual gearbox
  • Accompanied by owner’s manual and Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) Certificate


Jaguar introduced the third series of the E-Type in 1971. The most notable feature was its brand-new twelve-cylinder engine. Greatly increasing the available power and torque over earlier straight-six E-Types, the V-12 more than compensated for power decreases due to stricter emissions control in the Series 2 E-Types. Exterior changes consisted of flared wheel arches to fit the new suspension and wider track, along with a cross-slated front grille. Jaguar only produced the Series 3 E-Type in two styles, the 2+2 coupe and the roadster, dropping the two-seater fixed head coupe. In addition, the roadster adopted the longer wheelbase of the 2+2, making for a larger, more comfortable cabin.

This example, from 1973, is reported to be a two-owner, rust-free Arizona car and has benefited from a comprehensive, nut-and-bolt restoration. The work was completed by Farland Classic Restoration at a cost of over $200,000, with invoices and photos for the work included with the car. During the restoration, the colors were changed to the classic Jaguar livery of British Racing Green over tan. Two tops accompany the car, a black convertible top as well as a restored black factory hardtop. The interior features Smith’s instrumentation, factory radio, and air conditioning. During the restoration the car was upgraded to a close-ratio five-speed manual transmission for relaxed highway cruising, a very popular change. The E-Type rides on Vredestein Sprint Classic tires mounted on new chrome wire wheels. The car is accompanied by its owner’s manual and JDHT Certificate.

The Series 3 marked the final iteration of Jaguar’s famed E-Type. Easily one of the finest examples extant, this Arizona Jaguar has all the desirable features of the model: factory hardtop, air conditioning, and chrome wire wheels. It also retains the more pleasing small bumperettes, plus the useful manual transmission upgrade to a five-speed. Having benefited from a no-expense-spared restoration, with fewer than 500 miles since its completion, this E-Type presents impressively and is ready to be shown and enjoyed for years to come.
