The much-anticipated launch of the new Jaguar V12 engine in 1971 also prompted changes to the Series 3 cars, including the 1972 Jaguar E Type. The new V12 engine was almost three-inches longer than the previous V6 engine and was also much wider due to the addition of two pairs of carburetors placed on the outer sides. This increase would lead to some body changes, as Jaguar had to fit this new engine into a body that was known for its pleasant curvature and iconic lines. New flared wheel arches emerged, as did wider tires and a larger, cross-slatted grille for additional air intake. To accommodate for these changes, Jaguar also used the longer 2+2 chassis. Because these Jaguar Series 3 E Types encompass all the changes that would happen over the course of nearly 13-years of production, they are highly sought-after in the collectors market. Not to mention they are a beautiful and classic example of British racing cars at their prime. But, as an owner, you probably already know this.


1972 Jaguar E Type Seller’s Guide

Jaguar, due to increased room on the 2+2 chassis, was also able to offer the 1972 Jaguar E Type with an automatic transmission. It is important to note that many Jaguar enthusiasts and collectors prefer the manual transmission, however. If you’re thinking about selling your 1972 E Type, be sure to do some research on recent sales, rarity and demand in order to price your classic appropriately. If you need help or Seller’s Tips on pricing, the Alex Manos team would be happy to assist you. They have been buying and selling classic cars for years and have the knowledge and expertise to evaluate and appraise your car on the spot. You will also want to ensure you are accurate with your description of the E Type and its condition. Nothing is worse than dealing with a buyer from across the country only for them to find out your car is not as promised when they arrive. Other ways you can speed up the selling process include having current photographs ready, having the car cleaned, ensuring there is space in the garage to view the car, and having all documentation about the vehicle handy. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team recommends.
