1974 Jaguar E-Type Roadster SOLD

1974 JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER
In the early 1970’s, Jaguar gave its perennial E-Type a major makeover. While it might be hard to imagine the lusciously styled Jag ever needing a refresh, there was a lot of pressure on Jaguar to keep the car in compliance with ever-stricter safety and emissions standards, and still keep it performing on par with the competition. For 1972, the heavily redesigned Series III E-Type was unveiled. It was longer, lower, wider and featured new styling that, while still clearly an E-type, was flatter and more modern than before. The biggest change lay under the long, forward hinged bonnet. The iconic 4.2-liter twin-cam inline-six “XK” engine was out, and in its place was a new, all-alloy, single overhead-cam V12 displacing 5.4 liters. The twelve breathed through a quartet of Stromberg carburetors, and put its copious torque to the ground through a choice of automatic or four-speed manual transmission. The chassis was essentially the same layout, though made wider, longer and stronger to accommodate the new drivetrain. Four-wheel disc brakes provided excellent stopping power. The new E-type V12 was a softer car than its predecessor with a more generously sized cabin that was comfortable and relaxed. The power steering system is highly boosted, but still provides surprising levels of feedback to the driver, and the silken V12 delivers strong performance in a very subdued and quiet manner. Still very much a true Jaguar E-Type, the Series III manages to give the driver an altogether different experience from the earlier cars, while still maintaining the feel and experience of a proper Jaguar sports car.

This Pale Primrose Yellow 1974 E-Type roadster is an incredible, one-owner, low mileage car that has been extensively restored to a very high standard. Sold new in Pennsylvania, its first and only owner was Ray Mundt. The Jaguar served as a company car for Mr. Mundt, and he originally registered it to Royston Distributors, a subsidiary of the once mighty ALCO Standard Corporation, of which Mr. Mundt would eventually serve as the President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board. A somewhat unlikely company car, Mr. Mundt cherished his Jaguar, keeping it for over 40 years and accruing a mere 18,000 miles in that time.

It was very well-equipped from new, fitted with the very rare optional factory hard top, air conditioning, stereo, 4-speed manual gearbox, and luggage rack. Pale Primrose Yellow is considered by many to be among the most attractive shades for the Series III E-Type, with the black hard and soft tops providing a pleasing contrast on this car. The paint quality and body fit are truly exquisite, with restored exterior brightwork. The undercarriage and engine bay have all been fully restored with hardly a nut or screw left unturned. Proper paints and finishes were used throughout to give this car a showroom fresh appearance, particularly under the bonnet where the big V12 is simply gleaming. Likewise, the suspension has been beautifully restored and detailed and a full stainless steel exhaust has been fitted to provide lifetime service and a rich mellow soundtrack from the V12 engine. The car sits with an aggressive stance on period correct whitewall radials and lovely chrome knock-off wire wheels.

Thanks to the exceptionally low mileage, the black leather cabin could be restored only as needed, with much of the original trim being carefully preserved. Seats and carpets appear new, while the vinyl dash panel, console and instruments appear to be original. A new black soft top and matching canvas boot were fitted, and the original hard top was repainted, though it retains its factory headlining and trim, all in outstanding condition. Even the trunk has been properly restored with correct tan Hardura upholstery. The sale includes the original owner’s manual, stamped service booklet, radio manuals, and warranty cards.

The twelve-cylinder Series III was once the neglected sibling in the E-Type family, but a new resurgence in interest has seen value and collectability on the rise for these excellent GT cars. Rarely do V12 E-Types appear in such beautifully restored condition. This is an outstanding opportunity to acquire a low-mileage, one-owner E-Type, ready for enjoyment on the road.
