Delivered through Henlys, London to J J Ludlow Partners for company executive Franco Mingozzi. Delivery colours were white with black – today, most of the internal paint is original, and the interior trim is wholly original.
In 1979 Mr Mingozzi bought the car from the company and when he returned home to Italy in 1994, took the Jaguar with him. It remined in the Mingozzi family until the current British owner imported it in 2017.
The odometer is currently showing just over 39,000 that we believe to be the correct mileage from new. All original panels, matching numbers and driving like an untouched, unrestored example. Fitted with a rare, valuable factory hard top in excellent condition, this must be one of the best remaining Home Market Series 3 E-Type’s in existence.
