Evaluation: Represented as matching numbers. Presentable old repaint with detail swirls and a few light scratches. Erratic panel fit on the doors and hatch. Tidy and maintained but never fully restored engine bay and underbody. Good, mostly original interior with light wear to the carpets and lightly wrinkled, slightly dry leather. A driver-quality SIII E-Type with all the desirable options (4-speed, wire wheels, air conditioning).
Bottom Line: This car sold on Bring a Trailer a little over two years ago for the reasonable sum of $50,500. The odometer shows 1183 more miles and SIII E-Type values haven’t done much since then, so this reported high bid could have been taken with little regret (and gratitude for the 1100 miles of driving).
