1971 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 2+2 Coupe
Lot No.: 331
Registration: 507 RAE
Chassis Number: 1S70954
Engine Number: 7522185B

Year of Manufacture: 1971

Finished in stunning Ducati Blue with contrasting leather interior, '507 RAE' was originally dispatched from Browns Lane to the US as a left hand drive series III V12 Coupe 2+2. This most visually striking 1971 four-speed manual car was converted to right hand drive when repatriated in 1990 and has had substantial amount of money spent on it this year.
Benefiting from a restoration process, we are informed that this included a no expense spared bare metal re-spray with doors off, chrome off and windows out. The vendor advised that no filler was used in the process while a new bonnet and front cone were fitted. A documented and detailed photographic record is available of this process.
The car was then painstakingly re-carpeted and re-trimmed inside with new leather interior and fitted with new roof headlining, new seatbelts and a new period steering wheel. The old chrome around the outside of the car was taken off and re-chromed and the wheels were buffed, which we are informed took 20 hours to complete. We are told the car has recently had a detailed engine service costing in excess of £2,000 and all fluid levels are now clean and fresh. A new electronic ignition was also fitted, a new exhaust and four new Pirelli P4000 super touring tyres all round.
The car presents very well and the chrome shines like it should. Upon opening the doors you really feel like you are walking back in time. Once inside the leather interior feels soft and supple and as you look up the roof lining looks sharp. When you place your hands on the new wheel and start her up, the 5.3 litre V12 is on the button and sounds fabulous.
The vendor informs that this beautiful car drives very well, with a speedometer currently showing a mileage of 69,931 unwarranted miles. The car will be supplied with a full V5C, a current MoT certificate that expires on the 02/07/2015 and a history file including nine previous MoT certificates plus the detailed photographic record of the bare metal re-spray.
