We are offering one of the most original and unmolested 32k mile 1974 E-Types on the market today. Finished in its original Pale Primrose over Biscuit leather that is in remarkable condition, being all originalfrom the dashboard, door panels, carpeting, leather seats and so much more. The original cosmolene from the factory is still in its proper places and untouched, which is a confirmation of its rust free condition and originality, from the original floor pans to the spare tire compartment in the trunk, as well as all areas of importance on such a motorcar.
The 1974 model year marked the end of an era for Jaguar, as it was the final production year for the E-Type, one of Jaguars most celebrated post-war models. Throughout its transition from the Series I 3.8-liter inline-six to the Series III powered by a 5.3-liter V-12, the E-Type had remained an icon of British engineering and design. Over the E-Types 13 years of production, it had evolved into a comfortable grand tourer, and the V-12 cars were the pinnacle of that evolution. The addition of a V-12 engine over the earlier straight-six meant an increase in available power. Other mechanical changes included a new suspension and wider track. The roadster also adapted the longer wheelbase of the outgoing 2+2 coupe, providing for slightly more interior room.
Twelve-cylinder E-Types are praised by enthusiasts for the power and torque provided by their engines, and they are excellent long-distance drivers. This Series III E-Type Roadster represents excellent value for the money, as it combines one of the 20th centurys best automotive designs with the history that only a V-12-powered European roadster can provide.
The striking look of the rare “Turbo Disc” factory wheels set this XKE apart from the rest and the automatic transmission makes the car a joy to drive in the city, country or on the highway making it a female friendly and comfortable driver. This is a proper example as the original factory radio works perfectly, and the a/c blows ice cold on the hottest days that south Florida is known for, and is a pleasure to drive and even show, if desired.
