SUMMARY

The perfect 'Garage Find' - a low-mileage E-Type Series 3 2+2 with the V12 and manual gearbox, ready for recommissioning.

DESCRIPTION

  • A low-mileage Series 3 Coupé (2+2) from around 20-years ownership in dusty 'garage-find' condition that still appears to be a solid prospect, is always going to attract attention
  • Guided competitively, this four-seat grand tourer, presented in British Racing Green and believed to be matching numbers, has the desirable manual gearbox
  • Colour changed in the 1990s, our vendor acquired the car around 2003 but a change of circumstances and loss of storage mean it's now time to move it on
  • Retaining its original registration and requiring relatively little recommissioning, we believe this to be a superb opportunity to enter 'big cat' territory at an inviting price

Vehicle History

Remarks

The car comes with some documentation but has been parked for most of the last twenty years. It will require recommissioning however it has been running under its own steam within the last twleve months. It will require a new battery and more but is a solid prospect.


Restoration Notes

Work on suspension about 20 years ago.
