Car sold at auction in '04 ...

Auction description:
1973 Jaguar E-Type V12 Manual Roadster
Registration Number: FTM 543L
Chassis Number: UD1S21769
Engine Number: 7S10027LA
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.
At first glance this E-type is not to the most desirable specification with sable paint, cinnamon leather trim and left-hand drive. Closer inspection reveals an excellent car with very many benefits. The milometer shows a low recorded mileage of approximately 38,000 (partly confirmed by US purchase paperwork). In superb condition, it features manual gearbox, power steering and air conditioning. Tidily presented in the engine bay and boot, it also appears very sound underneath. Chrome wire wheels are fitted while further desirable, features include a chrome luggage rack, tinted windscreen glass, the original weather gear tonneau cover and the addition of a wind deflector.
Offered for sale with a quantity of paperwork including US import documentation and recent history including servicing in June 2003 and 2004. It also comes with V5 registration document and MOT expiring June 2005. Starting easily and running and driving superbly on our recent inspection, this excellent car should not be dismissed for what it isn’t, but enjoyed for what it is.
Estimate: £15,000-17,000 Result: £15500

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?
