1972 Jaguar E-Type
Beautiful 1972 Series III V-12 XKE OTS (Convertible) with 6 downdraft double barrel Weber carburetors, all matching numbers, Regency Red with Biscuit interior. 4 speed Manual transmission with a new $10, 000, complete engine rebuild. Finish the vision and own the fastest XKE around or rebuild to original specifications. Original engine parts included.
The Series III was born in 1970 and ended in 1974. There were only 1,266 convertibles with a V12 with quad Zenith-Stromberg carburetion under the bonnet in 1972. The 1972 5.3L V12 engine provided 300 horsepower and is the most powerful of the series III family. This vehicles engine was rebuilt with 6 Weber carburetors and new intake manifold to add even more horsepower while still keeping the number matching theme.
Options include: 72-spoke chrome 15” wire spoke wheels with Elite Touring tires, quad tip chrome exhaust, leather wrapped steering wheel, remote outside mirror, and more! Standard options included a responsive 4-wheel independent suspension with matching disc brakes at all four corners, front and rear bumper guards, and full Smiths dash instrumentation with electric clock (newly cleaned and restored)! This is a rust free, filler free car. Every Panel removed and refit for perfection. The entire undercarriage has been Zebarted for rust prevention. All mechanical parts have either been replaced or reconditioned (driver door handle needs reconnecting to the door lock and rubber door seals should be replaced with next paint job. The last time this vehicle was painted was in 1989 and shows some wear in spots). I started this project with my son when he turned 10. It seems like I went to sleep and when I awoke he was going off to college. It has been garage stored and has never been driven in the snow. This is definitely a warn weather vehicle. There are currently 3 miles on the odometer. I haven’t even plated this car in 3 years. I start it every few months to exercise the engine and then dust it off.
The car has no rust whatsoever with the floor boards and all the typical rust-prone areas completely original, solid and rust-free! The car shows no signs of any accidents of any kind and has a completely straight body with only minor imperfections, noticeable upon very close inspection. The original tan color soft top headliner with matching tanneau cover which is also in good shape. All maintenance records going back until 1989. Full discloser; the last two pictures show the worst of the paint and the middle counsel needs to be modified. I changed the gear shift for a shorter throw between gears. The next step was the counsel.
