Description for Jaguar E-Type 1974

Rust free 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 OTS convertible roadster

Mild custom with 427 Short Block Chevrolet crate engine and T10 4 speed manual.

This roadster is from Southern California, mported to Canada in 2003 with mileage of 31,298. Kept warm and dry since and the mileage today is 37,575

Straight and rust free. The body and paint are in good condition with some imperfections.

Robbins soft top was installed in 2004 and is in good overall condition with exception to one noticeable nick in it. Interior and lower console need refurbishment work.

This roadster had a 350 Chev in it when purchased by the previous owner and the original engine and transmission were not available. The previous owner spent significant time, oney, nd effort completing a 427 SBC transplant. This crate engine comes complete with Dart block, ustom crank, ods and pistons, NC port matched edelbrock intake and aluminium heads, nd custom 1 3/4" headers. The previous owner stated that no cutting welding or drilling was done in the process - I can't be sure so I'll let the pictures do the talking. Brand new clutch hydraulic actuator installed.

More recently an inspection was completed with request to provide a detailed list of items to address, nd the following items were listed:

  • Engine tune up
  • Door adjustment
  • Incorrect wiper blades
  • Hood safety latch needs adjusting
  • Heater fan not working
  • Window washer not working
  • High beam, arking, nd hazard lights not working
  • Fuel return line not working (currently operating as returnless), nd leak detected at line coupling
  • One horn working, nd the other not working
  • LH header close to P/S fitting
  • Oil leak L/R engine
  • Engine/trans/and exhaust mounts require isolation
  • Brake squeal
  • Ball joint + bushings all around
  • Rad fan not functioning. Thermo switch not currently connected
  • Replace brake flex hoses and fix brake and fuel lines to body
Although drive-able, his Jaguar needs some attention to get it over the finish line.

The direction I was planning on was in Jaguar purist fashion to fit the period correct series 1 V12 and Borg Warner auto which can be sourced cost effectively from an early XJ12 or alternatively a donor S3 E-type 2+2, nd funded partially by selling existing engine and transmission. As the story goes, ith family commitments time is the hardest thing to come by. The decision is to move on prior to getting in too deep and the next owner can decide which direction to take this Jaguar.That said I would like another classic I can deal with local mechanics to maintain.Got any interesting trades along the lines of air cooled Porsche 911, 28 GTS, ercedes, ston, unbeam Tiger, lfa Romeo, ancia, aserati, errari 308 328 Testarossa?

E-Type Series 1's seems to be skyrocketing in value with roadsters being the most collectible. Series 2 and 3 E-Types are following suit. So what you have here is an affordable opportunity to purchase an E-Type OTS to which your effort is worthwhile.

This is the first listing and I plan to sell. If I didn't judge the reserve and BIN right I'll re-list with better information to go on the second time around.
