    1972 Jaguar XKE V-12 Roadster red w/black top

    Factory
    Miles: 68,250 mi
    Engine: V-12
    VIN: 1S20275
    Tires: P215/65R15 Dunlop D60-A2

    This 1972 Jaguar V-12 is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. Has flawless red with new black interior. This automobile has only 68,000 original miles. It underwent a complete restoration about 2 years ago. The paint is perfect and the chrome trim on this car is impeccable. In addition the engine compartment has been fully detailed. This car runs and drives excellent with an engine that has been highly tuned with a great sounding exhaust. Equipped with Dunlop D60-A2 (P215/65R15) tires providing a great handling package with the power steering and powerful V-12 engine. Other options include the original jack, air conditioning and new 72 spoke jag wire wheels. Everything is properly functional on this vehicle. The 1972 Jaguar V-12s have become very sought after by collectors because of the powerful V12 and superb handling characteristics. This is also true because this was the last year before the “fat” front and rear rubber bumperettes. It would be difficult to find a better running XKE V-12 or one in better condition!

    Sellers description:
    MotorCarTrader.com is thrilled to present this special, early model 1972 Jaguar E-type Series III V12 Roadster. This car was built on March 27 of 1972. This was the 274th Jaguar E-type Series III OTS (Open Two Seater) LHD car produced. This great Jaguar was dispatched on April 14 of 1972. The original colors of this great car are Signal red with Black interior. This is a matching numbers car. We sold this car in 2001 and recently acquired back from the owner who had the car since 2001 (we sold this car to him in 2001). He placed about 1,500 miles on the car since (from October 2001 to November 2013). Prior to his ownership (pre 2001), the car was in a large collection until our initial purchase in 2001.

    This truly is one of the nicer upper level driver V12 Roadsters you will find anywhere. As we understand, it was restored on an excellent original car prior to our initial ownership in 2001 and driven sparingly since. The previous owner was unable to drive this car and it sat for about a year before we purchased the car back in the fall of 2013. Below are some of the work we did to the car and work done by a Jaguar V12 specialist. Also, more details on this truly excellent Jaguar E-type Roadster:
    A new complete stainless steel exhaust system installed with a new quad fantail (resonator) in chrome.
    New electronic ignition installed with new champion plugs, new coil, new rotor, new ignition pick up and new cap.
    Fuel drained and Stromberg carburetors completely rebuilt with new floats and carb rebuilt kits.
    New (original type) Electronic Fuel pump installed.
    Cooling system drained. New water tank installed and fresh coolant added.
    New thermostat installed.
    New rebuilt AC compressor installed with new hoses.
    FREON Level Charged and checked for leaks. Blows cold AC.
    New Clutch master cylinder installed and system bled.
    New transmission mount installed.
    Koni Shocks installed.
    Underside, floors, rear end and pan completely degreased before new SS exhaust install. The underside was then, cleaned, detailed and re-sprayed (pictures available before and after).
    All switches, gauges and wiring gone through.
    New rubber floor mats.
    Valve Cover gaskets replaced as well as the Cam Towers resealed to prevent oil leaking on manifolds and exhaust (a common problem for v12 e-types which will lead to smoking). Valves were inspected at this time. New water outlet o'rings installed.
    The engine is excellent with great compression of 155 to 165 psi across all 12 cylinders. A lot of V12s do not have this consistent compression across all 12 cylinders and this engine is very, very strong. The oil pressure is 60 to 70 pounds when the engine is warm.
    Matching numbers car as per the Heritage Certificate and Original color combination of Signal Red with black interior.
    The car runs and drives exceptional. It is very fast and tight. This E-type handles great and is a pleasure to drive. Steering is easy, the clutch feels great and the car shifts beautifully with no noise in any of the gears.
    The paint on the car is excellent with a few minor chips and a few minor wear marks. We have driven this car, it is meant to be driven, a higher end drive and not a show/trailer queen. The interior is also excellent with minimal wear. The original steering wheel does show some patina and gives the car nice character. The soft top and boot are vinyl. Though they are not new, they function fine with no tears or shrinkage.
    All chrome is also beautiful and looks great.
    This car does not rust and the original floors are excellent from both the top side and underside.

    Overall, this is a great higher end driver level Jaguar E-type V12 Roadster. It would be hard to replicate this car both cosmetically, structurally and mechanically as this car is truly right and an absolute blast to drive. Earlier model V12 roadster are becoming harder and harder to find in this condition.
