This is a 1972 Jaguar XKE (E-Type) OTS Roadster – Series III Convertible.
It is a remarkably beautiful car and turns heads every time it’s outside.
This is a low mileage car with about 47K on the odometer.
The 1972 model year was the 1st full production year for the new V12 configuration.

I’ve owned this Jaguar for about 11 years. It has been garage kept through my ownership and never been in the rain. I seldom drove the car in my 11+ years of ownership. It is in excellent unrestored condition with paint being done by the prior owner. There is no rust on the car and the body and undercarriage is straight with no accidents or damage. Overall it is an excellent clean original and unrestored example. All numbers matching with original engine, transmission, and drivetrain. It has original real wire wheels with knock-off hubs. This beautiful roadster is an automatic and has factory air conditioning. I have a clean title for the car.

Interior is all original and unrestored. Leather seats show some wear however, are in great shape. Carpet and dash are in excellent condition.
Exterior is in great shape as well. There is no rust on this car. Under bonnet is clean and rust free. Boot is rust free as well. No rust in tire well or rear quarter areas. Includes wire wheel spare with original jack, handle, knock-off wrench and hammer. All original boot liners and covers

The convertible top is original and in excellent shape for a 40+ years old! The top mechanism works perfectly and the top overall looks great. The rear window is a bit yellow however still provides visibility. The original tonneau cover is also included and is in perfect condition.

I also have the original owner’s manual and several other books that I will include with the purchase. There is one original key and I have a blank WASO key that will also be included (no longer produced). I have some spare parts that I purchased many years ago that I will also include. I have a clean title for the car. Car has been tuned by local British car shop; new plugs, points, rotor, cap, and plugs. Starts and runs great.

The only items that have been replaced are the battery and starter. The starter is a new high torque type and works great. I have the original factory starter that will be included will the car as well.
Hagerty's prices this out at $60-70K in current conditionreserve is well below that!

Jaguar history
In 1971, the Jaguar E-Type Series III introduced a V12 engine to the model. Jaguar called it the "Ultimate Cat" and advertised the its inherent smoothness and absence of engine noise. The small block V12 displaced 5.3 liters and produced 314 horsepower. Along with the new engine, the body entire car was lengthened for additional cabin space. Along with the longer 105-inch wheelbase, the body had flared wheel arches, revised bumpers, and a large scoop under the front grill. Inside the V12 had an entirely new interior with new reclining seats, a center console, new door panels and a revised steering wheel. The dashboard retained much of the Series II layout, but included the 2+2 stowage areas above the floorwells.
