Three owners from new, the first for 23 years; 68,400 miles with large
history file to show regular upkeep throughout its life; manual
As the original purchase invoice shows, this Jaguar E-Type V12 Coupe was supplied new by HR Owen of London to a Mr E Everett of Purley in March 1973. Finished in Regency Red with a Russet interior, manual gearbox, inertia reel seat belts, heated rear window and steel wheels, it cost £3,745 including £643 purchase tax.
Mr Everett was to keep the car until 1996 (during which time it was registered as MT 4957) and it has only had two more owners since, both in the same family.
It is showing 68,369 miles which seems likely to be correct and is backed up by many invoices and 16 old MOTs on file. Well maintained throughout its life, the invoices show that the car had a major mechanical overhaul in 1981 at c.50k miles and the bodywork was restored and repainted in 1986/7. It had a new clutch kit in 1996 at c.66,500 miles and new brake discs the following year.
In 2020 it had 4 new rear shock absorbers; new radius arm; a/r/b bushes; fresh oil and filter; new hoses and coolant pipes; new fan motor and impeller; new headrest foams plus various other items.
It comes with all its original handbooks in the original Jaguar wallet, original maintenance chart and wiring diagram, period road tests and various magazine features.
As you can see in the photos, it looks most attractive indeed with just the odd minor paintwork blemish here and there. Starting promptly and running beautifully as we have moved it around on site with good 60psi oil pressure, it has an MOT until April 2024 with no advisories recorded.
