Finished in Solent Blue with Blue trim this 1973 V12 E-Type Roadster has the great bonus of possessing a very good straight line, excellent panel fit, an exceptionally good bodyshell and associated panels. Furthermore, WinSpeed were entrusted with a major overhaul in 2013 and subsequent work in the intervening years. The car drives extremely well and is ready to use and enjoy.
Exported new to New York in 1973, it is quite extraordinary to see that this car then returned to UK in 1980, when only seven years old and with a mileage of some 34,000. Not only that, but it was completely stripped back to bare metal upon arrival, professionally converted from Automatic to Manual and also to RHD, with a complete colour change from Fern Grey with Moss Green trim to Silver with Black. There is an extensive photo album documenting this expensive process, made even more remarkable by virtue also of documenting its further transformation to its present very attractive colour combination.
The mileage currently showing is 55,000 and, judging by numerous MOT certificates, is believed to be correct.
