Bereavement sale. In the same ownership for 22 years. The Heritage Trust certificate that comes with the car records this as an original UK‑supplied manual right‑hand drive example, in Regency Red with Biscuit interior, being despatched from the factory on the 5 March 1973, destined for Henlys of London.

The long‑term owner from 2000 had the engine rebuilt around 2001 by Wolf Engineering, shortly after he acquired the car. The gearbox was rebuilt by Dains of Norwich during the last 10 years, and the suspension and steering rack also received attention and, where required, replacement. However, it seems that, during the course of the gentleman's ownership, there was no restoration work carried out. The car was looked after by an acquaintance, who runs a local motorsport business, and also serviced and MoT'd the car. As the owner was a great enthusiast, it was often used for club events, including some speed trials ‑ although, tellingly, if it was raining, another car would be taken so as not to get the Jaguar wet. Reputedly, the car was only used in the dry.

The odometer shows 67,742 miles, and the MoT is valid until April 2022. The history folder is huge, with an extensive amount of paperwork. This includes the V5C (which shows nine former registered keepers), MoTs back to 1978 and a huge stack of bills back to the mid‑1990s showing many thousands spent. There's also a Series 3 marketing brochure, photos of work done on the Jaguar, the heritage certificate, and booklets, correspondence and guides from events the E‑type has attended, assorted club magazines and E‑type Register directories from 2001, 2006 and 2011. It seems that pretty much everything relating to this car from around 1995 onwards has been kept.

We're told that the car drives extremely well. Being (presumably) an older 20th century restoration, the paintwork does show some signs of age; the bonnet has some paint cracking apparent, while there are marks elsewhere on the body, although overall, it looksvery presentable. The interior is very tidy, with only some patina to the seats, most noticeably the driver's one.
