1973 Jaguar E-type road­ster

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The E-type’s Se­ries 3 swan song was a world away from the orig­i­nal model launched a decade be­fore. Like Chevro­let Corvettes of the same era, the E-type moved from be­ing a sports car to a grand tourer. It was big­ger, and pow­ered by a V12 en­gine, but the full-on driv­ing experience was di­luted. Nev­er­the­less it re­mained pop­u­lar, and Barons’ 1973 Road­ster, with the less-com­mon man­ual gear­box, is a re­minder of those last, pre-XJ-S days. This ex­am­ple has cov­ered 50,000 miles from new and still wears its orig­i­nal Green Sand paint and brown leather in­te­rior. Well-doc­u­mented, it has cov­ered just 3100 miles in the past 11 years.
