Car to be at auction 9/20

Auction description:
Highly original example with desirable manual transmission
1973 Jaguar E-Type 5.3-Litre V12 Series 3 Roadster
Chassis no. UD1522797
€ 70,000 - 110,000
US$ 82,000 - 130,000
The Autoworld Autumn Sale

Engine no. 7S11901LA
•Delivered new to the USA
•Matching numbers
•Two owners from new
•Desirable manual transmission and air conditioning

Completed on 21sy May 1973, this Series 3 E-Type was sold new via British Leyland in New York, USA to a Mr Angelo Sposato from Nutley, New Jersey. The original Bill of Sale is on file, dated October 5th 1973 for the amount of $10,217. Mr Sposato was the only owner of this magnificent Jaguar until it was sold to the current vendor, a prominent Belgian private collector, in January 2016.

The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate confirms that the car has matching numbers. It is finished in the very attractive colour scheme of dark blue with tan leather interior (its original combination) and also has the highly desirable manual transmission and factory air conditioning. We are advised by the vendor that this is a very original example in full working order, which drives extremely well and is a pleasure to experience.

Reputed German experts FSP, with Sebastian Hoffmann as Classic Car Consultant, carried out a thorough examination of the car and gave it a 'AA' rating on a scale of 'A' to 'AAA', while the FIVA passport (issued 19th January 2020) categorises it as 'A/2' (A = 100% original; 2 = Authentic). Finally, the Jaguar was also evaluated by the respected Belgian Classic Car expert Gert Beets, who concluded: "This car has been imported from the US and is maintained in a very original and good overall condition. E-types in such an original condition are very hard to find".

The substantial history files contain the following:

Original maintenance passport showing Mr Sposato as owner
Original Jaguar handbooks pouch
Original operating, maintenance and service handbook
Original spare key in magnetic box
Picture of the car with Mr Sposato
Original NJ title in Mr Sposato's name, showing the vendor as second owner and dated 16th November 2015
All maintenance invoices since the car's acquisition by the vendor

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?
