Hot on the heels of the revolutionary XK120, Jaguar’s revised XK140 sports car was a careful evolution of its predecessor, one that set to smooth out rough edges of the XK120. Thanks to the glorious twin-overhead cam six-cylinder engine, the XK120 offered near 120 mph performance and had earned its place as a world-beating sports car. But Jaguar was eager to rectify some of the complaints it heard from customers– such as a tendency to overheat in traffic, a cramped cabin and sometimes unpredictable handling on rough roads. With the XK140, Jaguar introduced important refinements such as rack and pinion steering, telescopic dampers and a larger radiator grille and revised cooling system. The body of the XK140 retained the 120’s svelte and feline curves but gained larger, more protective bumpers and some additional exterior trim. As per the 120, the 140 could be had as a coupe, drophead coupe, or OTS (Open Two Seater, otherwise known as the roadster). The cabin for all three bodies was slightly enlarged to allow more occupant comfort and easier ingress/egress. Performance wise, a standard XK140 produced the same 190 horsepower as the old top-line XK120 SE, but buyers who wanted additional grunt could opt for the “MC” option - which fitted the C-Type cylinder head, dual exhaust, and 2” S.U. Carburetors to deliver a stout 210 horsepower, offering exhilarating performance with a glorious soundtrack and finely honed handling. This 1957 XK140 Roadster is a fine driving example that has been very nicely restored with an emphasis toward drivability. It is both very attractive and ready for enjoyment. Finished in the classic combination of red over black leather with a black top and chrome 16” wire wheels, it is a very pretty car, with strong cosmetics and even stronger mechanicals. The red paintwork is very nice, with good quality panel fit and nice, straight chrome trim. 16 inch chrome wire wheels are wrapped in blackwall radial tires, which provide just the right sporting look to contrast the red paint. The interior has been recently refreshed with high quality black leather and very nice, properly fitted black carpeting, it’s a great place to spend an afternoon of top-down motoring. Should you get caught in some weather, there is a black canvas top to keep the cabin dry. Mechanically is where this particular example shines. The iconic XK twin-cam inline six is equipped with a C-Type head which matches the block, delivering a healthy 210 horsepower. An electric fan was added to help with cooling and easy any worry about hot running in traffic. The engine runs strong and the car drives beautifully, with excellent pull through the rev range and of course, plenty of that addicting six-cylinder growl. This is the sort of car we would use at every possible opportunity – to go for a night out, to drive to a vintage event, for casual show or for tours and rallies where it would really shine. This beautiful XK140 roadster is turn-key and ready to be enjoyed, and will certainly reward its next owner with many miles of happy motoring.
1955 Jaguar XK140 Roadster POA This car is probably the most original XK140 Roadster in the world. It has less than 22,000 recorded miles from new and is a great testament to the original owner, who cared for and maintained the car for more than 46 years. The first owner, Rene Savoie, ordered the car namely Jaguar XK140SE in the beautiful combination of Suede Green exterior with Suede Green leather and it was dispatched to Massachusetts on the 18th February 1955. Mr Savoie reluctantly sold the car when he could no longer physically drive it and it passed to his long time property manager, at the time of sale the recorded mileage was just 20,000. Over the last eight years, the car has been part of a collection of highly original unrestored sports cars. The recorded mileage today shows 21,958 miles. We have completed some light recommissioning work in order to make it safe and reliable. Although the car is sitting on its original Dunlop Gold Seal tyres, we would recommend that these be changed if you were going to use it as they are now somewhat perished. The body and structure are in remarkable condition with very good panel gaps. The engine bay is excellent with the original chassis plate attached and the correct C-Type cylinder head fitted. Even the original cheney hose clips are still in place. The interior is also in remarkable condition along with the original carpets and door casings and we are currently feeding the leather to improve its suppleness. A full tonneau cover is included, which again is in remarkable condition. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a wonderfully preserved Jaguar XK140 Roadster in the best specification.

1957 Jaguar XK140 MC Coupe s/n S815890, engine no. G9416-8S White with Red Leather Interior The Jaguar XK series cars are among the most recognized and appreciated classic sports cars of the 1950’s. These innovative, beautiful, and capable performance cars not only set a high standard in racing, they built Jaguar into a formidable manufacturer of fine touring cars. The first of the series, the XK120 launched with an all-new twin-cam inline-6 cylinder engine, capable of delivering 120 mph performance at a surprisingly affordable price. By 1955, the XK120 became the XK140, offering notable improvements including more legroom, increased horsepower, rack and pinion steering, telescoping shock absorbers, and improved brakes. As before, the coupe, drophead coupe, and roadster versions were available. Jaguar offered a range of performance options including the SE model, which could include the competition-derived “C-Type” cylinder head, designated as the “MC”. The SE (Special Equipment), came with wire wheels, dual exhaust, fog lamps, and larger carburetors, all of which resulted in 20 more horsepower. This particular car is a matching numbers genuine XK140 MC Coupe, built 6 November 1956

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 XK140 Drophead Coupe, one of 480 in RHD and one of only 15 delivered in British Racing Green with Suede Green interior and Gunmetal hood. It is a particularly important example in view of its almost un-paralleled originality and time warp condition. Constructed in November 1955, it was dispatched on January 18th 1956 to its first owner; the proprietor of Graphic Designs, a Wolverhampton-based design company. For the next 52 years it remained in the same family ownership and covered only a little over 30,000 miles during that time before being acquired by JD Classics in 2008. Carefully maintained throughout its life, it is one of very few survivors that remain in remarkably good unrestored condition retaining full matching numbers, original paintwork, carpets, trim, hood and tools, including the rare wheel brace that was only fitted to cars with disc wheels. The remarkable degree of preservation of this example is confirmed by the fact that it is featured in two highly significant books; “Jaguar XK140/150 in Detail”, written by Jaguar Daimler Heritage’s chief archivist Anders Clausager and the “Original Jaguar XK”, written by the founder o
One of the finest XK140 Roadsters for sale today Completely restored in 2006 mechanically and cosmetically Manual gearbox Ready to use and enjoy US papers and Jaguar Heritage Certificate
The Jaguar XK140 was introduced in 1954 and sold from 1955 to 1957 when it was replaced by the XK150. Technically it was very similar to its predecessor the XK120, but with improvements to suspension, steering and brakes. Styling differences included larger bumpers, different grille and a chrome strip to the centre of the bonnet and boot lid. Engine and bulkhead were moved 3” further forward to give driver and passenger more legroom, making it a much more comfortable car to drive! The XK140 continued to use the same 3442cc six cylinder engine from the XK120 but with a 10hp increase in power to 193hp in its standard form coupled with a Moss 4 speed gearbox with overdrive as an option, which this car has. The FHC shared the interior trim and rear seat with the DHC with wind up windows and Walnut veneer dash and door cappings, but the roof line was lengthened by moving the windscreen forward, resulting in shorter wings and longer doors to give better access and more interior room. The XK140 production was very much aimed at the US market and the vast majority of cars went there, with only around a quarter of XK140 Fixed Head Coupe cars being produced in RHD form. This car was original

This is a Autotune XK140 Aristocat.;;Built with Jaguars written permission, the Aristocat uses all Jaguar XJ6, components housed in a steel spaceframe chassis. For ease of build the Aristocat uses the XJ series suspension un-modified, resulting in the car being five inches wider than the XK140, but only one inch wider than the XK150. The additional width, let in down the centre of the car, allows for a more spacious cockpit and boot than the originals and drivers of well over six feet can be easily accommodated.;;The Aristocats blend of classic looks with modern mechanical components produces a very capable vehicle, the original prototype being timed by a member of the media at 0-60 MPH in six seconds and a top speed of over 150 MPH.;;;The original owner of this project has completed around 60% of the build, which he has done to a very high standard.;;The chassis is complete, all the suspension, brake, steering, drive train and engine installation are complete. Bolt a seat on the chassis and you could drive it. The body is not bolted to the chassis hence the door gaps are not correct at present.;;Please see the price list within the pictures, this kit with all the extras cost over GBP 12000, add to that the cost of the doner vehicle, this is worth over GBP 13000 before you factor in the many man hours already put into this project. If you have enough time on your hands you could be driving this before the end of the summer. This needs hardly any parts to finish, just time.;;It comes compete with the doner V5 so you can register it. Also included is a file full of the build photos so far, which further demonstrate the quality of the workmanship. Plus the build manual. ;;Fantastic value project which will be worth GBP 20000-GBP 30000 depending on the level of finish you decide. Great summer project with all the hard work done, yet enough to do to leave your stamp on it.;;Picture number two is the parts price list from Aristocat, we believe we have selected the correct ones. Over 50 photos on my website. www.nuneatoncarsales.co.uk
