Saw this car on 20th March 2020 at Mathewsons in Thorton Le-Dale where it was due to be auctioned the next day. It failed to sell.
The car appear to be in good condition with some micro blistering to the main body paintwork but the bonnet appeared to be in very good condition. Looked like the radiator might be on its last legs though. Just gave the car a quick look over.

The Condition 

Original factory colour scheme 

Lovely condition inside and out 

The combination of Regency Red coachwork and Magnolia leather makes for a truly beguiling combination, and this British classic presents extremely well indeed, both inside and out. The Heritage certificate confirms that this was the car’s original colour combination.

Externally, we find the car to be very impressive indeed, with a gorgeous lustre to the paint, and all of the correct chromework present and gleaming. The wheels are equally neat and the tyres have plenty of tread. The light lenses and window glass are in good order, and the soft-top is a quality item in good condition, which is simple to raise, affix and lower.

Inside the cabin, things are equally impressive. The leather trim is in lovely condition throughout with very few marks save for a couple of scuffs on the sides of the seat-backs, and the seats are pleasantly supportive. The car has a tasteful wood-rim steering wheel, the carpets are complete, the dash is tidy with no evident sun damage, and it’s all in period-correct specification save for the addition of a modern CD/radio head unit.

Inside the boot it’s all dry and tidy, with the correct spare wheel under the floor.

The Mechanics 

Recent mechanical overhaul 

Impressive V12 performance 

The impressively tidy engine bay acts as a good marker of the quality within. The running gear of the Series III is its party piece; the V12 is a sonorous and muscular thing, and here we find it running beautifully; it fires easily on the first turn of the key, idles evenly, pulls strongly through the revs, and the gearbox is smooth and slick. 

It’s a pleasure to drive, and the automatic transmission perfectly complements the grand-tourer experience. We can see from the history file that a large amount of money has been spent in recent years on finessing the mechanicals, and this is evident in the drive. 

The suspension and brakes feel as robust and effective as they ought, and the package overall is supremely pleasing – the E-Type fulfils its sports/tourer credentials with verve.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
