1973 Jaguar E-type roadster
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.
