West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and very rare barn-fresh (garage really!) find of a virtually completely original and stock example of this 1973 Jaguar XKE E-Type V12 Series III Roadster in its original striking 'Pale Primrose' Yellow color paint with a classic and all original 'Black' leather interior! A completely rust free example of this coveted penultimate year of the legendary E-Type Jaguar with its original matching #'s (7S12181L0) V12 engine with reportedly only two owners since new and believed to be only 20k original miles, its original and very desirable 4 speed manual transmission and with all of it's original factory specifications and options including original Black leather interior and carpets, AM radio, power steering and air conditioning! This is a very rare factory 4 speed and air conditioned car and this beauty still boasts all five original chrome 'knock off' wire wheels and its original spare chrome wire wheel in the trunk and original matching Black convertible top and tonneau cover, factory 'knock off' mallet and jack!
Recently purchased from the collection of the car's long term second owner and a car which was owned and stored for many years by this renown Saginaw, MI classic car collector in his climate controlled storage facility until his passing and which was one of the cars we recently purchased from his collection! The car's original matching #'s V12 engine runs as smooth as silk and the car drives exactly as it should with such low and believed to be original miles. The car must be driven and seen to be truly appreciated - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day sports car a run for it's money! The 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the temperature always remains cool!
The car has no rust whatsoever with the floor boards and all the typical rust-prone areas completely original, solid and rust-free! The car shows no signs of any accidents of any kind and has a razor straight body. The car looks extremely impressive in it's original 'Pale Primrose' color paint and the car still boasts it's original Black color leather interior with the door panels, dashboard, seats and carpets all in very fine condition. The original Black color soft top is in great shape and the car has it's original matching tonneau cover. The factory chrome wire wheels are also in beautiful condition and the car has it's original spare wire wheel located in the trunk which of note has its all original wood trunk lining and the spare wheel compartment is all in remarkably intact and all original unspoilt condition.
This is a rare opportunity to own a completely rust free example of an obviously always garaged and completely stock 1974 Jaguar XKE V12 Series III Roadster with its original matching #'s engine and 4 speed manual transmission with power steering and air conditioning and leather seats in very fine condition throughout with reportedly only 20K original miles with only two careful owner's since new! Although not a concours or fully restored example, this remains an even rarer and probably these days more desirable virtually all original rust free and unabused V12 E-Type Jaguar Series III Roadster and it is the ultimate unrestored example for the Jaguar enthusiast or any classic British sports car collector to add to their collection!
