Nothing on the road can put quite as much skip in your step as driving one of these cars. ????????Danny Hopkins, Editor, Practical Classics Magazine (U.K.) ???? The E-Type Jaguar (XKE in the U.S.) is as storied an automobile model as exists in modern times. In this regard, it stands alongside Ferrari and Porsche at the very top of the order of marques delivering legendary performance and ground-breaking design. And like cars from those other two manufacturers, the Jaguar E-Type presents a unique silhouette, style statement, and driving experience. As Phil Payton of the New York Times put it, Since it was unveiled at the Geneva auto show in March 1961, the Jaguar E-Type has regularly topped lists compiled by designers and enthusiasts (Enzo Ferrari notably among them) of the most beautiful cars ever made. And Danny Hopkins called the V-12 version, One of the best grand touring cars in the world. ???? The third and final Series III E-Type debuted in New York on March 25, 1971 and, in the words of Hemmings Sport and Exotic writer, Mark McCourt, ...represented a beautiful gift box to contain the jewel-like V-12 that rested under its storied bonnet. In addition to the 5.3-liter aluminum V-12 engine, for which its extended body work was specifically designed, the new model included a host of mechanical refinements, features, and option choices. While some collectors prefer the earlier cars, the Series III cars performance as a grand tourer, capable of all-day 100+ mph cruising performance (150 mph top speed) with long-term reliability, makes it the choice of enthusiasts intent on driving, not merely collecting. The stately 2+2 coupe-only offered in the Series III production-is perhaps the most iconic of the models over the four-year run. Jaguar ceased producing E-Type cars in 1974. ???? When choosing a classic car, provenance-the history of ownership and maintenance of the particular example under consideration-is an important part of the buying decision. The Series III E-Type 2+2 offered here is presented with a comprehensive history of ownership, all in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The car was purchased new by a physician who would own the car for the ensuing 20 years. The second owner would hold the car for another 15 years, ultimately offering it to his favorite charity event where it was raffled to its third and current owner in 2012. Consistently serviced by Verburgs Automotive throughout its life, recent maintenance included new weather stripping, new radiator, renewed fuel system, new Opus distributor system, and rebuilt carburetors (by John Twist of University Motors). The car was resprayed in the late 1990s in its original Regency Red color. ???? The stunning good looks and design excellence of this 2+2 are evident in the more than 175 photographs on the GarageKeptMotors website. From every angle, the lines of the car in its lustrous deep red color represent pure automotive art. The cars overall condition is exemplary. With a mere 43,000 miles (under 1,000 miles per year) on its odometer, this has clearly been a loved classic from day-one. Inside the car, every surface-from the appropriately creased, original tan-leather upholstery, flawless dashboard, spotless carpeting, to the original Smiths instrumentation-displays the exceptional care of the cars prior owners. Its no different under the bonnet. The characteristic front-hinged hood opens to reveal the 12-cylinder heart of the car, yet another view of what can only be called automotive artwork.
