Own this beautiful Series III Jaguar that comes with many options. When performance and speed meet, that is where you will find our V-12 Series III Roadster.

The vehicle is complete, and is good driving XKE. To bring the car to the next level, it would require a re-paint, new seat cover, and center console redo, full service and detail. This is a collectible and hard to find Roadster.

It is now 2014 and rather than sell the car back in 2006, I committed it to a complete nut & bolt restoration, using the original nuts & bolts. This car is now truly magnificent with only two changes from original: Bumpers have been switched from US spec overriders to Euro spec chrome and Color has been changed to jet black with tan interior. It's been seven years in the making and s/b completed August 2014. Photos forthcoming.

Car to be at auction 6/17
NEWPORT BEACH 2017
1974 Jaguar XKE E-Type SIII Roadster
Consignment # 9101
Vehicle to be offered for sale June 2-4th, 2016 at Russo and Steele's 5th Annual Newport Beach California Auction.
This Jaguar Heritage certified, E-Type, V-12 Roadster, chassis UE 1S 24973, was manufactured on 20 February 1974 and includes the sought-after 4-speed manual transmission, chrome wire wheels and air conditioning.
In March of this year, the car completed a 150k+, professional restoration, wherein the car was completely disassembled, the body stripped bare, all body work completed without filler and the car reassembled using as many of the original parts as possible. The engine was completely rebuilt and the interior reconstructed using the original seat frames and hardware, new foam and covered in new, correct, biscuit, hides. A modern sound system, including four high-end speakers is hidden in the parcel shelf and is operated from your mobile phone via Bluetooth. This car is totally correct with the original driveline, body & chassis with only three changes made the color has been changed from sable to Jaguar-correct black, the bumpers have been changed from US spec to Euro spec and the soft top has been changed from the original vinyl to canvas. The result is nothing short of stunning.
The engine and body work is photo-documented and was performed by SoCal Jaguar Specialist, Bill Armstrong. The interior work was performed by interior specialist Car Classic Interiors of Van Nuys, CA and final assembly and testing was performed by Steve's Jaguar Service of Canoga Park, CA.
The Seller purchased this car from a retired Navy officer in San Diego in December, 2000 55,400 miles. Previous ownership is unknown. The car has always been garaged and well maintained and was driven regularly until restoring it at 72,000 miles. The car has completed roughly 1000 miles since it's return in March and is running as new.
