1973 Jaguar E Type
Year: 1973
Make: Jaguar
Model: E Type
Body: 2-Door Coupe
Odometer: Indicating 82,354 Miles
Engine: 12-Cylinder Petrol
Transmission: Manual

Description/extras: This is no ordinary E type! The Momo steering wheel, the short throw 5 speed competition gearbox, competition mag wheels and Max Flo trumpets on the SU carbs tell you this. This E Type was successfully campaigned in Targa Tasmania and then put back on the leash sufficiently to make it a comfortable enough road car. That said, this car is NOT for the undisciplined driver or anyone wanting to be anonymous. Because of its history of note in Targa Tasmania its acceleration is best described as dramatic; or even harsh.
After its last run in Targa Tas some 9 years ago the car was stripped to a bare shell, everything was removed and then it was totally rebuilt to be an exceptional road car. With many many thousands of $$$s spent on new parts and a lot of skilled man hours. It had a bare metal respray and a complete new interior.
1 JAGUAR (the plate goes with the car), Car presents extremely well but it is not a show pony that you would not want to drive for fear of reducing its value. That said, it is close enough to concours that you would be happy to display it at any Jaguar car club events - or in your driveway.
The car is only looking for a new custodian because its current motorsport owner has too many cars in his collection and doesn’t get to drive it often enough to keep it happy. Owners manual.
