British Racing Green with original black leather interior, black canvas top, AC, PS, Automatic
This is a nice very low miles 1974 Jaguar series 3 V12 roadster in a great color combination of British Racing Green with black interior. It comes with chrome wire wheels, power steering, automatic transmission, air conditioner and a black canvas soft top in good condition.
This is a very high serial number car, making it one of the last Jaguar XKE built. It has a built date of June 1974. I purchased this car from a collector in South Carolina that owned it for 18 years. He kept the car in his collections and started it on a regular basis but hardly put any mileage in those 18 years. Car looks, runs and drives very good.
Body: The body is straight and rust free. The original floors are in very good condition as is the trunk floor. The car was last painted at least 18 years old as it was in this condition when the previous owner purchased it. Paint looks good, it is smooth and with an deep gloss. There are a few minor paint chips and a couple of small rust bubbles on the bottom of the driver's door, but nothing that really detracts from the car's good looks. Tires have plenty of thread, wire wheels are nice and tight.
Interior: The leather interior is original and in very good condition, especially for its age. The soft top is in very good condition and was upgraded to canvas (originally they were vinyl to cut cost), it fits very well. All gauges are original and in working order, including the clock, The radio is the original. Dash top is in good condition without cracks.
Engine and mechanicals: Very good oil pressure and no smoke and no oil leaks The automatic gearbox shifts very good. New front brake rotors and water pump were just installed. The AC is connected but does not blow cold (probably low on freon). Brakes, power steering, and electrical system are working properly.
Others: Included is the owners manual, jack in the bag, knock off hammer and knock off tool.
Jaguar e-type V12 roadsters are great touring cars and have one of the best lines of any car ever produced. This particular Jaguar is ideal for the person not looking for a trailer queen, but something very nice to drive on a sunny day. The low miles and attractive color combination should also make it a good investment.
