Increasingly stringent US impact and emission regs in what was Jaguar's largest and most vital foreign currency earning export market added weight and reduced performance on the E Type S2 4.2. The Coventry manufacturer was forced to employ a totally new 5.3-litre 272bhp V12 which virtually filled the underbonnet area of a new, more powerful and cleaner S3 roadster and 2+2 coupe. This was the first mass-produced twelve since the demise of the Lincoln Continental in 1948. The new E Type with its distinctive cross-hatch rad grille had power steering as standard.
The Cheshire entrant of this 1972-manufactured Series 3 E Type with the optional and more desirable manual gearbox tells us that he acquired the fixed head from the original owner in 1989. However, as he never transfered the car into his own name, officially, it has only ever had one registered owner from new. It is fitted with wire wheels and a full-length sunroof.
The vendor says that Full Service History is on file which records a new engine fitted in 1975 at 31,000 miles and a respray in 1990. Although the mileage when entered for this sale was 39,500 miles, a new speedometer head was fitted at 85,000 miles, therefore the total mileage is claimed to be 124,500. It has been MOTd until next July.

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?
