Car at auction 11/21

themarket.co.uk/en/listings/jaguar/e-type-series-iii-roadster/0042ef45-fe50-47dc ...

Auction description:

Location: The Market HQ, Abingdon, United Kingdom

Odometer Reading: 66000

Chassis Number: 1S 2422

Engine: 5300

Gearbox: 5 speed Manual

Steering position: RHD

Colour: Silver

Interior: Tan

Estimated Price: £75,000 - £85,000

This magnificent Series 3 OTS roadster is as rare as it is fine. And it’s very fine.

A total of 7,990 were built and, of those, 6,118 were destined for foreign lands and were LHD models.

Of the 1,872 RHD cars built, the majority were optioned with an automatic ‘box. This, then, is one of a relatively small number of Series 3 V12 OTS roadsters that left the factory as a RHD manual.

The car has had 8 previous owners and comes to us courtesy of a man who is an avid and extremely knowledgeable collector of classic cars. He bought his first E Type 53 years ago and has owned countless examples since.

We know that one of the questions he asks of any car in his collection is, “Could it get me to the South of France at 90mph, stopping only for a croque monsieur and a splash of essence?”

Having driven the car ourselves, we have no doubts whatsoever concerning its ability to whisk occupants down to the Côte d'Azur at illegal speeds without missing a beat.

It starts on the button and purrs almost imperceptibly into life. Once warmed up it presses on with plenty of enthusiasm and urgency. The slick, notchy ‘box clicks each gear into place with satisfying certainty. The ride is firm but in no way harsh (and comes into its own in 5th gear on an open road), and the balance, poise and grip are refreshingly untypical of most other E Types we’ve driven.

It is thoroughly sorted mechanically and structurally. Thanks partly to the vendor, who has just forked out something in the region of £8,000 with The Classic Project Shop in Bicester to get it properly fettled and ready for action (more on that in the History section).

But thanks, also, to the first-class restoration job done by The E Type Centre in 2005/6 – a process during which they upgraded and uprated several key components in order to create the supremely usable, driveable and confidence-inspiring vehicle you see before you today.

Namely:

a five-speed Getrag manual gearbox

power assisted steering

‘sport’ ignition system

stainless steel exhaust system

‘fast road’ brake pads

stainless steel brake hoses

uprated adjustable GAZ shock absorbers

uprated Harvey Bailey anti-roll bar/handling kit to the front and rear

polyurethane suspension bushes and mountings.

Since this restoration the car has covered just 2,720 miles. Hence the £8,000 spent recently on recommissioning, fixing and fettling.

The result of all this work is a car than handles, steers, goes and stops like very few other Series 3 E Types out there.

No, it’s neither concours nor perfect.

But it is very, very good – outside, inside and underneath – and it’s a revelation to drive.

On the Outside

This is a seriously good-looking car. There can be no doubt about that.

Resprayed during restoration in 2005/6, the car has retained its original silver paintwork.

In general, the paintwork and bodywork have held up very well over the last 16 years, which is a testament to the quality of the work carried out by The E Type Centre.

The chrome is all is top-class condition and the wire wheels look show-room shiny and bright, as do the exhaust tips, grille, badging and trim.

The shut lines and door gaps are consistent and even.

The mohair hood (and hood cover) is stain, rip and tear free, and looks to be in pretty good condition – both aesthetically and operationally.

The wheels are untroubled by time, mileage or damage. The matching tyres have plenty of life left in them.

From three metres away the paintwork looks to be more or less beyond reproach. Get closer and the little scratches, marks and scuffs start to reveal themselves. There’s a faint line across the bonnet visible from certain angles in the right light. There’s the odd bit of swirly paint here, the odd stone chip there.

There is some minor bubbling starting to appear in a couple of places around the o/s/f wheel arch and a short line of superficial rust has occupied a space now vacated by paint at the top of the same wheel arch.

On the Inside

The excellent interior is warmly inviting and, by E Type standards, really rather luxurious.

The reportedly rather sombre black interior was replaced during the 2005/6 restoration. In its place is tan leather upholstery (in a factory colour), a very good carpet and mat set in a complementary shade, and a splendidly rich and lustrous burr walnut veneer dashboard and glove compartment.

These elements combine to create an attractive cabin that’s sure to impart a very special sense of occasion every time you climb aboard.

With pretty much everything renewed, replaced, repaired or refurbished during the restoration process, it’s a glorious symphony of tan and beige shades and is very easy on the eye and, it should be said, the posterior.

The seats are supportive, comfortable and functional. This is a car you could happily take on long journeys without having to phone a chiropractor when you finally arrive at your destination and crawl out of the cabin on your hands and knees.

The carpeting at the rear is all in excellent condition. So too is the boot, where you will find a spare wheel and a toolkit.

The vendor tells us that you can learn a lot from the completeness, or otherwise, of the toolkit roll in an E Type.

The cars were available with either wire or disc wheels, requiring different tools for each. Rather than run the risk of supplying the wrong tool - a disc wheel tool for a wire-wheeled car, for example - the panjandrums at Jaguar decided to include both tools with every car.

This car still has both tools.

So, there you go.

There is a small, spidery crack surrounding the car alarm light on the dashboard veneer. There is a tear in the gear level gaiter. There are one or two spots of superficial rust dust in evidence on the metal parts of the folding roof.

The rear-view mirror, in common with many E Type rear-view mirrors, is prone to slipping out of position. The remedy, we’re told, is as simple as tightening a grub screw. There is some rust creeping into the mirror’s surround.

The vendor will be getting back to us with news about the sun visors which, eagle-eyed readers will have noted, aren’t there.

As far as we can tell, all dials, gauges, knobs, levers, toggles, switches and buttons work as intended.

Lifting up the carpets reveals….nothing more sinister than the odd bloom of superficial rust dust here and there.

Underneath

The engine bay doesn’t contain any surprises, nasty or otherwise. Everything appears to be as it should be and is in its right and proper place. There is no sign of any leakage, seepage or weepage.

The undersides of the car appear to have plenty of integrity and it’s evident that the Waxoyl treatment given at the time of restoration has done a good job of keeping the threat of oxidisation at bay.

History Highlights

The car comes with box of paperwork and various bits and pieces.

It also comes with the owner’s handbook, a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, an immobiliser and a car cover.

A combination of eighteen recorded original MoT certificates and the DVLA’s Vehicle MoT history show that since restoration the car has covered around 2,720 miles in the last sixteen years. The current mileage is just 66,700.

A new MoT has been issued which will expire in November 2022.

The car came to us minty fresh from The Classic Project Workshop in Bicester, where it had been the lucky recipient of the following services and attentions:

remove and rebuild the rear sub-frame

rebuild all brakes, including new discs, ‘fast road’ brake pads, handbrake, and brake hoses

new fuel lines from front to rear

rebush rear radius arms, trailing arms and anti-roll bar

major engine service including changing all filters and fluids

change gearbox oil

change brake and clutch fluid and bleed

replace fuel and brake lines

tune the engine

replace split ball joint covers

flush cooling system and fit all new hoses

fuel tank drained and cleaned

new fuel pump, distributor cap and rotor.

There are photographs of some of this work taking place.
