#'S MATCH V12, 4 SPD, A/C, 4 WHL DISCS, 2 OWNER, FRESH NICE PAINT, NICE INT, A+
Have you been searching for that perfect grand touring classic XKE that's turnkey ready for the backroads and car shows? Well, now your hunt is over with this 1972 Jaguar E-Type 2+2. It has its original powerful V12 motor, four-speed manual, correct color inside and out, and a level of preservation and maintenance that makes it a cut-above classic.
Pale Primrose is this car's factory correct color. It somehow strikes a perfect balance by being an attractive yellow, without falling into an "electric" hue. But the reason why you love it some much is because it has benefited from a professional respray. Now this perfectly subtle British color features modern clearcoat, so you really get to see all the curves that make up one of the most beautiful designs ever put to metal. Speaking of beauty, the '72 model was produced before these cars were fitted with the larger federally mandated rubber bumpers. So, there's nothing to get in the way of the brightwork on this coupe, and that's good because this one sparkles. The Series III cars retained great features such as the wraparound bumpers and headlight trim that creates a beautifully thin line all the way up the hood. But they also added more brightness like a larger chrome. This is a performance machine, and it easily announces it to the world even when it's standing still, thanks to the bright quad tailpipes, V12 rear badge, and knock-off style wire wheels.
The premium black leather interior coordinates nicely with the exterior. This is where the Series III cars really feel great for grand touring comfort. You still get all those great driving features from the previous generations, such as how the door panels and center console come together to envelope you in that perfect European driving experience. This is further enhanced by the three-spoke sports steering wheel, the gear stick that's always within close reach, and the full set of Smiths gauges. Plus, the 2+2 comes with a usable back seat and large cargo area. But now this has even more luxurious features, like the original AM/FM radio and cold factory air conditioning to provide all-day comfort. It's all presented with such originality that there's just the perfect amount of patina to reinforce all this history.
The 5.3-liter V12 was the answer for torque-hungry American roads, and it fits the bill superbly. This transforms the E-Type into an effortless cruiser that's basically capable of running all day at triple-digit speeds, yet perfectly happy to idle in rush-hour traffic. It only gets better when you realize this numbers-matching motor is likely showing 36,569 original miles. The race-inspired V12 fires up with an intoxicating exhaust note that only gets better as you smile your way through the four-speed gearbox. The racer lineage is even felt in the fully independent suspension, but as noted before, the Series III cars are not just performance. They are also the best for the long journeys. That's why this one has great anytime features such as power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and Dunlop sports tires.
This is a two-owner coupe that's been so well cared for that the ultra-low mileage is likely accurate. This is a ready to run and survivor quality E-Type... and you already know how rare that is. So your choices are call us today, or regret it tomorrow!
