We are pleased to offer this highly upgraded XK140 Special Equipment onto the market. This is a car ideal for regular use or long distance touring and has been equipped with many expensive upgrades that today would cost in the region of £20,000 supplied and fitted. This Jaguar XK has travelled well, starting life in the USA being distributed by Hoffman, New York. The XK was dispatched on the 29th August 1955 and was first owned by an Alberta Steele. In later years the XK was shipped over to Australia and in 2010 subject of a major refurbishment programme and range of impressive upgrades. This XK140 has been fitted with a five speed gearbox and power steering that really enhance the driving experience. Disc brakes have been fitted all round to improve brake efficiency and air-conditioning is in place to improve comfort inside the car. On arrival, this was checked and blows ice cold, certainly something that would be welcomed during summer months and particularly if considering some overseas long distance touring. Further upgrades include an electric boot release, wider wheels with radial tyres and uprated cooling system. Whilst in Australia the Jaguar was also converted to right han
Despatched 7th February, 1956 to Bryson’s, Sydney (one of only 3 XK140 RHD OTS cars delivered to Australia). It was raced in period by Bernie Maudsley at the AGP (Australian Grand Prix) meeting at Lowood in June 1960, with wire wheels fitted. The previous owner bought the car in 1980 and kept it for 34 years. He finally decided to take the car back to bare metal and carry out a full nut and bolt restoration. It has now only covered 335 miles since the restoration. The present owner took ownership in July 2014 on completion of the restoration and has brought the car back with him to London. This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire not only a very rare RHD XK140 roadster (one of only 73 cars produced worldwide) but one of very few XK's with genuine period race history. Thus making the car eligible for all of the prestigious touring events having recently had the FIA papers approved.

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.
