This 1974 Jaguar e-type roadster comes with the very desirable combination of wire wheels, 4-speed manual gearbox, air conditioner and rare factory hardtop. The previous owner took the body down to bare metal and paint esprayed, about 10 years ago. The body was, and still is, straight and rust free. there are many photos documenting the restoration which included the rebuilt of the rear independent suspension ... this is a major job and often neglected on many e-type.
The interior, top and wire wheels were replaced when the car was restored 10 years ago. The biscuit interior is in extremely nice condition. It has a tan top (in very good condition) and tan cover for when the top is down. All gauges works and the AC blows cold.
The chrome bumpers are straight but show some age lines (see photo), I would have them redone since the rest of the car is so nice. The paint is very good. The engine compartment is clean and detailed. Odometer shows 60K miles.
I realize sable brown is not everyone's favorite color. If I do not sell the car in the next 6 weeks, my plan is to have the car repainted in black (which would look superb with the tan interior!) and chrome the bumpers at the same time. In order to properly change the color of an e-type the frame rails, under the bonnet and inside the trunk would also need to be painted. This is a bit time consuming but required for a properly done job.
