Now in our Workshop currently undergoing a full restoration.
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.
We hold the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate for this Vehicle, which shows Factory Production information. This Vehicle was supplied by Jaguar Dealer in Hornburg, Los Angeles, US in September 1955. Originally a left hand drive - we are able to restore this vehicle to either left or right hand drive, as required. The vehicle came from a dry US State - which has preserved its condition well.
New Drophead Coupe body ordered and WMGT enhanced braking system with 4 pot callipers have been fitted (these can be removed if required). This vehicle has the desirable C-Type Cylinder Head.
We can tailor the final specification - including choice of paint and interior - lavishly or not at all... the decision is completely yours.
