Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12 Two Plus Two Coupe // 5 Year Extensive Photographic Restoration // SIMILAR REQUIRED


Jaguar E-Type S3 V12


Here we have a rather special matching numbers Jaguar E-type V12 2+2 Coupe with a documented restoration carried out by noted Jaguar E-Type restoration specialists Butlin and Sons, Swadlincote, Derbyshire over a 5 year period from 2014 to 2018.

Originally LHD being dispatched 13th January 1971 to British Leyland, New York before returning back to the UK in 2012.  The car resided in Soquel, Santa Cruz, California from new and understood to have had only 2 keepers being father and son. The car was sourced by vehicle importers Wheels of Old, Dorrington, Shrewsbury and hand selected due to its rust free and damage free condition.  We have images of the car taken by Butlin and Sons showing what fantastic original condition it was in prior to restoration. We believe the mileage to be original based on the evident wear and tear prior to restoration but have no solid documented history to support this.

We have circa 130 images of the car before, during, and after restoration showing what extensive work was carried out by Butlin and Sons. Each image taken by Butin and Sons has the owner's initials on a card in each picture to prove that each is genuine and not library pictures, great attention to detail. The total restoration costs exceeded £80,000 and the car was valued up on completion at £100,000.

Since completion on 1st November 2018 the car has only covered a mere 1806 miles. We had the pleasure of selling this car to the previous fastidious owner two years ago and have now taken it back in part exchange against our outstanding Austin Healey 3000 BJ8.

Today this beautiful 2+2 Coupe presents in exceptional order throughout, including the fully detailed underside.

The history file documents the vehicles 5 year restoration by Butlin and Sons, owners handbook, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, 2 sets of keys, and State of California Certificate of Title detailing the Stateside owner Mr. Jack Cross who took ownership of the car from his father on 8th February 1997 prior to being exported back to the UK 19th March 2012.

A Fresh 12 month MOT will be issued upon sale and of course, this E-Type is HPI Clear with certificate included.

This is an outstanding example of the mighty Jaguar E-Type Series 3. Unarguably one of the most elegant sports cars of all time and considered by many to be the best driving model not to mention the most comfortable.

Desirable and refined, this outstanding extensively restored E-Type would stand proud in any collection and is one not to be missed.

Finance, delivery, and part exchange are available, please ask for details.
