Ever-tightening U.S. emission regulations were threatening the very existence of the E-type at the dawn of the '70s. The 4.2-liter XK straight-six was at the end of its development so a bore or stroke increase was out of the question. The 5.3-liter aluminum V-12 that was under development at Jaguar seemed to be the answer. It weighed less than the venerable XK six and produced slightly more horsepower than the six had in three carb Series I form.

For the V-12 Series III, Jaguar dropped the two-seater coupe and offered only the 2+2 coupe and the convertible, the latter sharing the 2+2’s long wheelbase. Flared wheel arches and an even bigger, busier grille than the Series II rounded out the cosmetic changes. Performance was roughly restored to Series I levels but the car was far less sporting in nature. Still, it could have been remembered better had it not been produced at one of the worst times for the British auto industry. But all of the things that afflicted the cars when new can be addressed today (and in fact, most have been over the years). A Series III E-type does, however, get you into top down V-12 motoring for a fraction of the cost of a comparable Ferrari.

This US example spend the whole life only in sunny California until imported to the Czech Republic in 2016. It has Czech historic registration and an US title.

The car is presented in an exceptional color Sable Brown. It equipped with a 3-speed automatic gearbox and a 5.3 liter 12-cylinder engine producing 244 PS. It is regularly used and serviced and comes with original service book and full service history. There is no rust and the car is fully functional.

A complete service included: - refills incl. gearboxes, - tuned and cleaned by carburettors, - differential and cardan adjustment, - new heating valve - new rubber seals around the door, - overcrowded engine and gearbox - new chassis components (silent blocks, pins)
