|1974 Jaguar V12 e-type series 3 roadster
Very nice V12 roadster with only 28K original miles! Wire wheels, AC, 4-speed .... very nice paint and interior. The color is a combination of golden almond with a touch of green
(very 70's) with all original cinnamon interior.
This car belongs to a friend and I am helping him sell it.
I drove it the other car and this cars drives very good. Judging by the condition of the original interior and the engine compartment, I would say that mileage is accurate. Oil
pressure is superb and the engine has a lot of power. Clutch, gearbox, brakes and power steering are nice and tight. What really impressed me is the condition of the body. I did
not find any signs of rust or prior repairs, and the gaps are good. The engine compartment is original and undisturbed. The dash and gauges look very nice, an indication this
car has always been garaged. The AC did not turn on but that could be something as simple as a bad electrical connection or a fuse. It still has its original radio, which is a nice
touch. All and all, this is a good car that could be made into a really nice one.
I will be honest ... I do not like the color. I know it is a very 70's color and that they are coming back in style ... still it is not my cup of tea. This car is a perfect candidate for a color
change ... just imagine it in black, British Racing Green or dark blue! You are better off starting with a very nice "no stories" example such as this one than finding one the color
you like but discovering that under that pretty paint are a bunch of problems.
