1972 Jaguar E-Type Seies III
Rare Opportunity to own a well preserved, riginal example of the very desirable 1972 Jaguar XKE Series III 2+2 Coupe showing 82,931 miles offered by Gas Monkey Garage! The E-Type was initially designed and shown to the public as a rear-wheel drive grand tourer in two-seater coupé form.On its release Enzo Ferrari called it "The most beautiful car ever made"! The Series III E-type saw a new 5.3 L twelve-cylinder Jaguar V12 engine, prated brakes and standard power steering. This one was built with theoptional automatic transmission, ire wheels and air conditioning . The brand new V12 engine was originally developed for the Le Mans series. It was equipped with four Zenith carburetors. The engine produced 272 HP and massive torque with acceleration of 0-60 mph in less than 7 seconds. The newly used longer wheelbase now offered significantly more room in all directions. When I found this well preserve example of the iconic Jaguar XKE, wned by a very enthusiastic admirer of the XKE, knew I had to act quickly to secure it. He was able to enjoy and maintain it as it should have been until he was no longer able to enjoy drivinganymore. At that point he focused on maintaining and preserving it in an indoor building and this preserved the floors and tub from the fate of most E-Types (rust) and the result is this extremely well preserved, ut not restored XKE Coupe. Please see all pics (especially the spare tire tub!) The doors and hinges are extremely solid and tight. While this 1972 Jaguar XKE runs and drives for loading and unloading, he brakes need attention as theyare nearly non-existent, t has been stored for years and wasn’t driven for quite some time, herefore it will need to be completely serviced before attempting to drive it to insure safety and reliability (Due to our filming schedule we will not be able to service this XKE (sold as is/where is).The exterior is in good condition with a glossy white finish appearing to have been re-sprayed at some time in the past with minor nicks and scratches and some “crazing “of the paint on the hood as well (see all pics). The chrome bumpers and trim are present and in good condition (see all photos).The interior is also in good condition showing some wear with good, olid carpet (again, ee all pics!). The dash is complete and clean. The seats are complete and operational with clean, olid upholstery making for an easy restoration if desired. The engine compartment appears original and unmolested having been maintained throughout the years (again, ee all pics).Underside pics reveal a very solid tub and mechanical components that are unmolested with minimal rust present.This rare 1972 Jaguar XKE is located in Dallas Texas and the winning bidder may have the option of taking delivery here at the shop or we'll help with shipping logistics.
