Car to be at auction 7/14
classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php

Auction description:
Lot number 14
Estimate £22,000 - £24,000
Description Jaguar E-Type S3 V12 Automatic Coupe
Registration WWB 493L
Year 1973
Colour Magenta
Engine size 5,343 cc
Chassis No. 1S 51704 BW

The accompanying Heritage Certificate states that this example was manufactured on 7 March 1973 and painted in Heather with a Cerise interior - how very 1970s! Sold through Dutton Forshaw in Birmingham it was originally registered BNM 477L.

Its last two keepers have owned the car for the last 33 years, its previous keeper taking the car to Germany for a period at which point it overheated and was returned to the UK for rectification. The huge history file shows that Phillips Garages in Birmingham fitted a replacement reconditioned engine in August 1981, returning the car with a bill for £2,183 and twin-Kenlowe fans! In October of that year a further £1,147 was spent on a reconditioned gearbox. It is not clear when the colour change took place, the bright magenta colour suiting the car well.

Although it has seen little use over the last few years, the vendor has fitted new rear springs and rain deflectors and acquired a complete set of refurbished wire wheels and spinners, plus rear hub adaptors which have yet to be fitted. He has also added Opus electronic ignition which is a very worthwhile exercise on these engines and has had the cam covers and engine ancillaries detailed with specialist stove enamelling.

We are informed that it runs well and drives nicely and is MOTd until September 2014 and taxed until June 2015 (now tax exempt of course). The vendor believes that the indicated 96,200 miles is genuine.

Although introduced over 53 years ago, it is still a red-letter day when you see an E-type on the road. This sensibly priced example will enable its lucky new owner to get that feeling every time they open the garage door.
