We are always pleased to offer any model of the Jaguar range of cars and 'E' types come somewhere near the top of those. The car we have here is a 1973 'E' Type V12 Roadster with the more desirable manual four speed gearbox.
The vehicle was imported from California on the 23rd August 1989 and it was converted to its present right hand drive format by Robinson and Douglas for the previous registered keeper, a Mr. M. Cheetham of Wigan. The present owner bought the car to add to his personal collection in 1991 and further work was carried out which included, a new clutch, a new mohair hood and cover, the front and rear suspension was rebushed, the brakes were overhauled, the head gaskets were replaced. An inspection of the bores revealed that they were showing negligible wear which could indicate that the recorded mileage of 17381 miles would be correct from new but in any case it has only completed 600 miles with the present owner in the last seven years.
The car is finished in Jaguar Primrose Yellow and it is in immaculate unrestored condition with the interior, which has been totally retrimmed, being finished in Magnolia leather. It also has the original specification of chrome wire wheels, a chrome luggage rack, a period radio and it has the benefit of a current M.O.T. until the end of October next year.
A wonderful twelve cylinder 'supercat' which will give immense pleasure to its new owner.

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?
