My father purchased this car new on March 31, 1975, when I was 11 years old from Union Square Motors in Somerville, Mass (a suburb of Boston). The dealer had two 1974 E-Types left, this one and another one, both of which were Sable in color. The sale price was $9,200. It has wire wheels, A/C, and 4 speed. It did not originally come with a radio. There was a factory blanking plate to cover up the radio hole. However, the car was fitted with a factory antenna. I have since purchased a mint original factory black hardtop.

Sellers description:
This is a 4spd air with wire wheels and two top Arizona car.

It has the original paint in fair condition and original interior very good condition, no cracks on dash and seats are still soft with no tears. It has 68k miles and runs and drives great. Just get in and drive and enjoy. You do need to upgrade the cassette player though. (at least its not an 8track!)

I have bought this car in October 2013 and I am currently shipping to the UK but I was told it was part of a bankrupt sale so there is no history file with it. If anyone has any history documents on this car I would be very interested in them or possibly copies.
Thanks
Malcolm

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
