    Car was offered at auction in '03

    Auction description:
    1972 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 FHC
    Registration Number: DRJ 941L
    Chassis Number: 1S51509BW
    Engine Number: 7S8844SA
    By 1971, Jaguar's jaw-dropping E-Type had been in production for a decade. Despite continual improvements, new emissions legislation in the all important American market threatened to strangle the big cat's performance. Jaguar responded by giving its revered sports car new claws in the shape of a 5343cc V12 developed from the still born XJ13 Le Mans project car. The new engine was both effortlessly powerful and eerily smooth. With some 272bhp on tap, the Series III E-Type once again had 150mph in its sights. A revised wheelbase yielded better cabin space and together with wider tracks front and rear and new anti-dive front suspension geometry and wider tyres gave improved road-holding. From the second year of production, this Series III fixed head coupe is described by the vendor as being in good overall condition. Finished in metallic dark red with black leather upholstery, its dark grey carpets are offset by the light grey cloth headlining. Equipped with automatic transmission, it is fitted with optional wire wheels. Supplied to the previous owner by renowned specialist 'The E-type Centre' in 1993, it was purchased by the vendor in 1999. Since then, its upkeep has been entrusted to Phoenix Car Restorations. Offered for sale with V5 registration document, Heritage Certificate (confirming the date of manufacture as 9th November 1972), current MOT until April 2004 and historic (free) road tax.
    Estimate: £8,000 - £10,000

    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?
