The example we have here really ticks all of the boxes, it is a home market, right hand drive example, supplied with a Heritage Certificate confirming it still wears its original colours, has always been fitted with the all-important manual gearbox and is matching numbers. The car is an extremely early Series III car, with the heritage certificate showing a build date of December 8th 1970. The car underwent some comprehensive restoration work in the 1990’s, which was slowly carried out between 1990 and 1998, with the car covering around 5,000 miles in-between. Some replacement panels were fitted during the work, which were all correctly lead loaded, the glass was all removed and the car was painted in two-pack paint, which has held-up exceedingly well and retains an excellent shine. The interior was also retrimmed at the time and was clearly finished to a particularly high standard because it could easily pass as a job which was carried out in very recent years. A vast amount of work was carried out to the suspension, braking and steering systems at the time, a new wiring loom in the engine bay and various other electrical jobs were attended to. A re-shimmed flywheel, a new clutch, new downpipes and a stainless steel exhaust system were also fitted, then the car was treated to Dinitrol rust protection upon completion. In short, almost no stone was left un-turned and the car still looks excellent today. In more recent years, the car has had new carpets, roof lining, air filters and alternator belts, various new hoses under the bonnet, exhaust and inlet manifold gaskets, new high torque starter motor and many other small items attended to.
The car is supplied with a comprehensive history file, with 30 MoT test certificates dating back to 1976, by which point the car had covered 3,984 miles, showing a steady increase in mileage over the years and giving a huge amount of confidence that the indicated 40,000 miles would be accurate. The history file contains an original handbook, original workshop manual, original E-Type parts catalogue and many old tax discs and invoices. This is an excellent example of the increasingly popular Series III FHC E-Type, not overly restored to the point it cannot be enjoyed and presented in a particularly attractive colour combination.

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?
