Lanes Cars have just acquired this extremely early
E Type S3 5.3 2+2 chassis number 50003 which was one  of Jaguar E Type S3 Jaguar Cars taken to the Geneva Motor Show in 1971 as one of the Jaguar press fleet deployed cars for the launch of this new E-Type model. This third right-hand drive production Coupe was first registered on
1st April 1971 and much driven by the media, featuring in many motoring
journals which is confirmed on its Heritage Certificate which states Jaguar Cars Press Vehicle.

This is a historically important RHD matching numbers E Type Jaguar was then purchased by John Coombs from Jaguar Cars and displayed in his Jaguar Showroom before being purchased by a private collector.

John Coombs was a very successful post war racing driver in the 1950’s and was instrumental in persuading Jaguar to build the lightweight E-Type to compete with the Ferrari GTO and later he ran various cars in Formula 2,many of the biggest names drove for John over his twenty years as an entrant, including Jack Brabham, Ron Flockhart and Graham Hill.

As with all early E Type’s models when they were first put into production they were further enhanced and modified, this is very original example that still retains its original interiorand chrome work with some very unique features which were only on the first 20 to 50 cars made including Jaguar engraved cam shaft covers which were later replaced with Jaguar stickers on the cam covers as well as not having the lower pull heater ventilation controls.

Having been laid up for many years it was purchased from its private collector recommissioned and was then used very sparingly still finshed in its original factory combination of White with a Blue Interior
