1974 Jaguar XKE Roadster
The Series III 1974 Jaguar XKE V12 roadsters have recently become the flavor of the day for serious collectors. While the six cylinders have been in the spot light for some time, the 12 cylinders are now gaining newfound respect as seen by the collectors voting with their wallet as the prices are now increasing dramatically. For those that love the extra long wheel base and cabin comfort of the twelve cylinder…now is definitely the time to make an acquisition before the prices become somewhat prohibitive.
All that being said, this 1974 Jaguar XKE OTS V12 is an extremely attractive car, just check out the pictures and see the fine condition of this car. The seller purchased this car almost 40 years ago.
The original engine had a rebuild about five years ago and the engine was taken out and the engine compartment was repainted and has a very tidy appearance. This XKE has an automatic transmission that works just as it should. The car starts, stops and runs as you would expect.
This car has an upgraded radio and radiator but no other known upgrades.
The car was repainted at some time and it is believed that the black leather interior may have also been done previously. Note: the protective flower print seat covers were removed in pictures to show the condition of the leather, but some photos the seat covers do show.
The original wire spoke wheels are attached to the newer high speed rated tires.
While the odometer reads about 42,923 but there was a period of time when the speedometer was broken so a guesstimate for total miles would be about 75,000 miles.
This XKE is a beautiful touring presentation for a 12 cylinder XKE and the reserve has been set very fairly so everybody can bid.
