This beautiful 1972 Jaguar E-type Series III V12 roadster completed production at the Browns Lane Coventry factory on May 24, 1972, and was then dispatched on June 15, 1972, to British Leyland Motors Inc. of New York. According to the British Heritage Certificate, this ’72 E-type roadster left the factory in Pale Primrose Yellow over black leather interior and was mated to V12 engine numbered 7S6295SA, which is still in the car today. This unit is matched to the optional automatic transmission.

Accompanying the sale of this lovely Jaguar is the original convertible top boot, the knockoff tool for the optional wire wheels (with redline tires), the spare, and an original owner’s handbook. There is no rust to be found anywhere on the car, and the undercarriage is clean and tidy. There are no signs of Bondo or any damage repair on the car. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a beautiful running and driving V12 E-type that is rust-free and is said to run with its original drivetrain.
