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. imported to Canada in 2003 with mileage of 31. 98. Kept warm and dry since and the mileage today is 37. 75

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. money. and effort completing a 427 SBC transplant. This crate engine comes complete with Dart block. custom crank. rods and pistons. CNC port matched edelbrock intake and aluminium heads. and 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. and 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. parking. and hazard lights not working      Fuel return line not working (currently operating as returnless). and leak detected at line coupling      One horn working. and 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. this 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. and funded partially by selling existing engine and transmission. As the story goes. with 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. 928 GTS. Mercedes. Aston. Sunbeam Tiger. Alfa Romeo. Lancia. Maserati. Ferrari 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.

Regarding shipping: Halifax. Nova Scotia. Canada is a port city on the Atlantic coast with a roll-on. roll-off service available. depending on the destination. Boat shipment (to Europe and beyond) is very reasonable. in the region of $1000-$2000. By land. I have shipped cross continent to Halifax in enclosed trailer transport for approximately $2500 CDN. Hope this gives you an idea. but I encourage you to get your own quotes.

On Jul-14-15 at 06:11:09 PDT. seller added the following information:

Regarding duty free shipping to the US. I have an official signed/stamped copy of import document (from California to Canada). containing VIN and buyer and seller addresses. Hopefully this is enough proof to show the car is being re-patratriated. thereby saving a US buyer from import duty - As per terms I accept no responsibility here. but worth checking into.
