Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1955 Jaguar XK140 3.4 MC Drophead, LHD. The XK140 debuted in 1954 as the latest iteration of Jaguar’s classic XK series of sports cars. Preserving the curvaceous wing lines of the XK120 but featuring much needed improvements in handling, leg room and overall power, the 140 quickly proved to be a worthy heir to its iconic predecessor. Of these latest 140s, the most desirable models were those finished to Special Equipment standard and fitted with the C-Type cylinder head – such models were given the moniker “MC” in the critical North American market where demand was large and growing, particularly among the sports car fraternity. Originally supplied to California, this highly desirable ‘MC’ model with factory fitted C-Type cylinder head has benefited from a total chassis off restoration to a very high standard with very little use since completion. This XK140 is full matching numbers and has been upgraded by JD Classics to our Touring Specification less than 4 years ago. Numerous JD Sport upgrades were fitted including, 5 speed all synchromesh gearbox, Power Assisted Steering, Front Brakes upgrade with 4 Pot Caliper Discs, Alternator Elect
The Jaguar XK140 was manufactured between 1954 and 1957 with some 3,276 lefthand drive OTS (open two-seater) models predominantly destined for America and a mere 73 left for the rest of us. It was the successor to Jaguar's highly successful XK120. Upgrades included better brakes, rack and pinion steering, increased suspension travel and modern tube type shock absorbers instead of the older lever arm design. The primary visual change however was the more substantial front and rear bumpers and larger overriders. Another new feature was modern flashing turn signals, operated by a separate switch on the dash. The twin amber lights positioned above the front bumper helped to distinguish the XK140. The front grille size stayed the same but became a one piece cast unit with fewer, thicker vertical slats. The Jaguar badge was fitted to the grille itself, rather than being mounted between the grille and hood/bonnet as on the XK120. A chrome trim strip also extended back over the bonnet and at the rear continued down the centre of the boot lid, where it contained a red shield with the words 'Winner Le Mans 1951-3' inscribed in gold. Repatriated to the UK in late 1980's, this XK140 immediatel
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 Jaguar XK140 Roadster. This very early car was the 5th of only 73 roadsters built in RHD and is fitted with the pre-production boot handle that distinguishes the first 8 XK140s produced. Finished in the unusual factory colour combination of British Racing Green with Grey leather it was originally sold by Henleys of London before finding its way to Performance Cars in around 1956/1957 who returned the car to Jaguar for uprating to Special Equipment specification with C-Type head, 2 inch sandcast carburettors and body coloured wire wheels. In August 1957 the car was entered the car into 27th BARC Members Meeting at Goodwood where it was driven by Bunny Munns and as such is believed to be the only XK140 roadster to compete at this famous venue. The car subsequently had only 5 owners, one of which was for over 30 years. The car was subject to a total professional restoration in 1996 and has covered very few miles since. It is currently undergoing a full program of JD Classics race / rally preparation to full FIA specification. When complete it will be eligible for the most prestigious historic events including the Mille Miglia. Period Competi

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This beautiful XK140 roadster is a highly desirable “MC” model with factory fitted C-Type head and the very rare 2 inch Sand Cast carburettors, originally provided by the factory as optional tuning equipment. 1954 saw the latest iteration of Jaguar’s classic XK series of sports cars with the debut of the XK140. Preserving the curvaceous wing lines of the XK120 but featuring much needed improvements in handling, leg room and overall power, the 140 quickly proved to be a worthy heir to its iconic predecessor. Of these latest 140s, the most desirable models were those finished to Special Equipment standard and fitted with the C-Type cylinder head – such models were given the moniker “MC” in the critical North American market where demand was large and growing, particularly among the sports car fraternity. It is likely that the first owner of this XK140 MC, a Mr A F Edmonson of Hollywood, California, was one of these enthusiasts as he also ordered the rare 2 inch Sand Cast carburettors from the factory, which were a special tuning kit normally fitted to cars with competition in mind. While it is not known if this car ever saw competition it i
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 This beautiful XK140 roadster has been extensively upgraded by JD Classics and features a comprehensive package of desirable performance modifications to full JD Sport specification. Of particular note is the extended cockpit which affords considerably more leg room than a standard car and allows taller drivers to enjoy this delightful car. Constructed in April 1956, this roadster originally left the factory in LHD configuration as a highly desirable special equipment model, which was exported to Los Angeles, where it was sold through the famous Hornburg distributors. Being a California car it benefitted from a dry climate during its stay overseas and when returned to the UK in recent years was found to be in excellent structural condition and formed a perfect candidate for a full professional chassis-off restoration that was completed by JD Classics in 2012. During the restoration process the car was converted to RHD and received the above mentioned modification to the passenger area, which was undertaken in such a way as to deliver significantly more leg room yet have a minimal effect on the appearance of the cockpit area, which is almo
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

Following up on the success of the XK120, Jaguar wisely chose to make its replacement, the XK140, a careful evolution of its predecessor that was intended to refine some of the 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 Jaguar XK140 OTS is a genuine “MC” model as documented by a Jaguar-Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate. It has been very nicely restored and recently freshened and professionally detailed. The straight and sound body is finished in its original color combination of Carmen Red over black leather with a black top. Gorgeous chrome 16-inch wire wheels are wrapped in fresh whitewall tires. This is a very pretty car, with strong cosmetics and even outstanding mechanicals. The chrome bumpers and exterior trim are in very good condition, consistent with the quality of the paint and bodywork. The lovely interior has been refreshed with very nice black leather seats, proper black carpeting, and correctly trimmed door cards and kick panels. The leather is in excellent condition, showing just some very light creasing, lending the cockpit an inviting atmosphere. The original steering wheel is fitted and the instruments are in nice order in the correctly trimmed fascia. It is a great place to spend an afternoon of top-down motoring, enjoying the great reserves of torque from the exquisite engine. Should you get caught in some weather; a well-fitted black canvas top will keep the cabin dry. The boot is correctly trimmed in Hardura and houses a matching chrome spare wheel and whitewall tire. The original jack, grease gun and a knock off hammer are present. The high quality restoration kept a focus on drivability and this example is an absolute joy on the open road. Jaguar’s iconic XK twin-cam inline six delivers a healthy 210 horsepower when equipped with the C-Type head as this car is. According to documentation, this is a genuine 1957 “MC” engine with matching head and block, though not from this particular chassis. An electric fan was added to help with cooling and ease any worry about hot running in traffic or in warm climates. The engine runs strong and the car drives beautifully, with excellent pull through the rev range and of course, plenty of that addictive six-cylinder growl. The engine has been detailed and now presents beautifully, and new exhaust manifolds with proper porcelain finish have been fitted. While it is certainly beautiful to look at thanks to the gorgeous styling and very good quality restoration, 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 and highly desirable XK140 MC 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 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. 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.
