1955 Jaguar XK-140
First before describing this fabulous Jaguar XK-140 Roadster. MissChiTown would like to give a little of its philosophy on post war European sports car collecting. Many collectors have found that while the pre-war cars are very attractive in their styling and design. the idea of driving them on modern roads and highways is cumbersome and sometimes dangerous. Many of these collectors have turned to post-war sports cars. as they are the beginning of the standard of meeting modern road speeds. handling and stopping requirements.
The XK-140 Jaguar roadster in this ad is not only visually voted one of the ten most beautiful European post-war sports cars ever designed but it has also been upgraded by its owner so that it is a full. reliable. comfortable and dependable tour car with such improvements as an upgraded larger Jaguar 3. 8 liter 220 bhp Jaguar MII engine. Upgraded bucket leather seats (a Jaguar option). A fabulous paint job in one of the most striking colors. Ecurie Ecosse (Scottish Flag Blue) a Jaguar LeMans racing team color.
Yes this is a car that has it all – design. road capabilities and charisma. While this car looks like a first place winner and the upgrades are improvements for modern and fast highway speeds in a very comfortable manner.
