Series 3 1973 Jaguar E-Type convertible in Heather paint
Three owners, current one for the last 35 years
Did you plan to buy your sweetheart something really special for this year’s St Valentine, but feel you have missed your chance?
Fear not, as Car & Classic’s online auction site has come to the rescue of your Valentine with an outlandish, factory-spec Heather paint/Cerise leather interior combo E-Type convertible. The chassis and engine numbers on the bulkhead match.com those on the V5, accompanying the car’s beating V12 heart and the magic of those svelte looks to fall in love with.
Only three owners have dated this beauty, the last one for an impressive thirty-five years, and the Series 3 1973 Convertible has been lovingly looked after, judging by the substantial work carried out in the last year alone.
This E-Type does not need any jewels to enhance its beauty, but it has, nevertheless, been treated to some extra chrome adornments, such as the central bonnet strip complete with leaping cat and a US-spec bumper oval.
An engagement ring may be cheaper as the old-fashioned one-month’s salary, but can it compete with the “most beautiful car in the world” (according to Jeremy Clarkson)?
Auction starts on 15 February and will last seven days.
