The Jaguar E-Type (also known as the Jaguar XK-E) is a British sports car that was produced by Jaguar Cars Ltd between 1961 and 1975. The E-Type was known for its sleek, aerodynamic design and powerful engines, and it became one of the most iconic sports cars of the 20th century.
The 1974 model year marked the final year of production for the E-Type. By this time, the car was available in a number of different versions, including a convertible (Cabrio) and a coupe. The E-Type was powered by a 5.3 liter V12 engine that produced around 275 horsepower, depending on the specific model. The car had a top speed of around 150 mph and could go from 0 to 60 mph in just over 6 seconds.
Overall, the 1974 Jaguar E-Type V12 Cabrio was a popular and highly sought-after sports car, known for its performance, style, and prestige.
Finished in classic Regency Red, this desirable E-Type roadster is a very original example with only a facelift re-spray to freshen the paintwork; there is no rust, and many of the parts still have the factory’s paint markings. Its original bill of sale shows that the car was sold new to Mr RR Ervey of Denville, New Jersey on the 19th July 1974 for $10,150.00 and came equipped with wire wheels, air conditioning, AM/FM radio, and a hardtop. The E-Type remained Mr Ervey’s possession when he moved to Brewster, Massachusetts, and was regularly serviced until 2013. It was then owned for three years by a Mrs Denuzzo from Miami, Florida and was purchased by the previous owner in 2016 (bill of sale on file). The car has been cared for by Royce Engineering when it was in the UK.
The original manual and service booklets are included in the sale together with the still wrapped Leyland spare tyre in the boot, which was not originally included in the sale of the car because it ‘appeared to reduce the usable trunk space’. A fine original example of the ultimate E-Type.
The Cat is fitted with a manual Gearbox and comes with the rare Factory Hard Top.
