History File – This well-travelled E-Type has lived on both sides of the Pond – twice, it would appear and is clearly an older restoration, but still displays an honest level of quality. Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust have confirmed that our Series 3 2+2 5. 3 example was originally shipped to Florida in 1972 where it has spent the vast majority of its life. Interestingly, it finds its way to Basel in Switzerland between 1990 and 1993 with insurance and emission documents in the cars file confirming this European period. At some stage, it moves back to Florida before being sold by Rosner Motorsport Incorporated to Bonhams Auction House in March 2019. The concluded sale would see the car heading back to Denmark and again Europe bound. It’s then purchased in 2020 by a German collector and customer of Cathedral Classics who subsequently completed a full Historical status German registration. Now back on the market again it awaits a new home and will not disappoint any potential new custodian.

Exterior – The exterior is finished in Jaguar’s seldom seen Ascot Fawn (colour code JA034) and would appear to be an acquired taste, to some. The Jury is clearly out when it comes to public opinion when reviewing the Social Media comments. It was only ever paired with either red, beige, or in this case, a Cinnamon coloured interior. It’s been resprayed in some areas (mainly at the front) at some stage but, on a paint tester, it’s still very thin so it’s clearly been done some considerable time ago. No filler is evident – at all. The roof, rear door and most of the rear wings are actually still the original factory paint; all in all, the car still looks in remarkable condition. Importantly, both sills have been replaced! A couple of small areas of paint deterioration are starting to show in the sensitive door edgings and boot, but nothing that couldn’t be spot repaired and will be reviewed before selling. All chrome and bright-work are in super condition and need zero attention. A new windscreen has been fitted at some stage with some restoration work done at the sensitive bulkhead area too. As emphasised, the colour is an acquired taste but it will still appeal to some and is certainly different from the marques ubiquitous red.

Interior – Jaguar called this particular interior colour Cinnamon which is a lovely combination with the rare exterior Ascot Fawn. It’s an honest environment and consistent with the cars 102, 000 miles. Some restoration work has been carried out with new carpets and a new headlining and sun-visors at some stage, probably completed in the States. The original leather seats with, head restraints, show a spot repair done on the passenger seat squab with a photograph depicted below. Two small areas at the passenger side dashboard, also depicted below, are split. An appropriate, period Sanyo radio-cassette with a manual antenna are working just fine. Removing the chrome spare wheel, it reveals a well waxed and preserved boot-well, confirming the previously mentioned earlier restoration.

Engine & Gearbox – Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust have confirmed that we have a Matching Numbers car with the following numbers: Chassis 1S 732288 W - Engine number 7S 6788 SA - Body number 4S 54499 - Gearbox number 11475 The odometer indicates 2284 miles which is clearly a very realistic 102, 284 miles from a very tidy engine bay. Once warm, it’s a strong, responsive and smooth gear change from a well-documented powerhouse that, when running well, is frankly incomparable. Oil pressure is strong both when the power is down and at tick-over. There is no record, but the independent rear suspension has clearly been recently overhauled, along with an oil change some 400 kilometers ago. All brake fluids were changed at the same time. In addition, the previous owner has fitted a high performance radiator and a new water pump.

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes – The chrome wire wheels are covered in new Michelin Harmony P205/ 70R15 zero compromise tyres. The spare is also covered in a Michelin but is slightly older. The front left chrome knock-on does now have an area where the chrome has departed. The car brakes correct and, importantly, in a straight line.
