European Motor Studio is proud to offer this all original single owner 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III V12 Roadster. Finished in a rare and period color of Green Sand over Cinnamon leather, this gorgeous all original E-Type Roadster left the Coventry Browns Lane factory in December of 1973 and has spent the last 20 plus years in Tucson Arizona with its single owner since day one. Having been serviced and maintained by a Jaguar specialist its entire life this very original final year Jaguar E-Type is a matching numbers car. The original Green Sand finish shows very nicely for its age and aside from a few stone chips in the front nose and some chipping along a couple of the body lines and doors edges (a quarter size chip in the paint of the rear passenger side quarter lip) the 43 year old paint shows well. All of the trim and chrome are original and show very well. The body is very solid and rust free. The undercarriage appears to be all original and does not show signs of prior damage or repair.
The interior is also all original showing some age to the driver and passenger leather with one small quarter size repair on the passenger seat. The leather is still in very good condition as is the original carpets, door panels, dash and console. The top has been replaced at some time in its life and looks excellent and the original matching convertible top boot is present and fits excellent. The matching numbers Jaguar V12 engine starts right up and does not smoke under start up or acceleration. It idles beautifully and runs very strong through the entire RPM range. The engine has a beautiful tune and pulls with ease and has just been serviced with all of new fluids and a carb tune. The gearbox feels excellent and shifts smoothly through the gears. The brakes, suspension and steering all feel very solid and free from any known issues. All of the electronics are functioning and designed including all of the interior and exterior headlights, the key buzzer, fasten seat belt light and all of the gauges.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire low mileage original single owner final year E-Type Roadster that has been well cared for and maintained its entire life.
