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.

The seller has provided the following description of the 1955 Jaguar XK-140 Roadster in detail and we suggest that you also view the video to get a flavor of just how attractive this Jaguar roadster is to the eye of the beholder.  The seller would consider ending the auction early kindly call 847-774-4857 for a buyitnow price.   The car is located in North Eastern United States and if you provide your zip code we will calculate mileage on MapQuest.

The seller has told us that the car has been upgraded with a Jaguar 3. 8 liter 220 bhp Jaguar MII engine and is a strong engine with excellent oil pressure.   There are 67. 50 miles showing on odometer - actual unknown.   The seller has told us that this is a fun driver and he enjoys winning awards with the car at the British Car Club shows.   Original Body. nbsp;Chassis Gearbox.  Original 4-speed transmission.


IMPROVEMENTS MADE OVER THE PAST TEN YEARS INCLUDE:

 

Painted Ecurie Ecosse (Scottish Flag Blue) a Jaguar LeMans racing color.

The seller has upgraded the Jaguar with a more powerful Jaguar 3. 8 liter 220 bhp Jaguar MII engine.  

New interior. cockpit and trunk.

Upgraded bucket seats done in gray leather (bucket seats were a Jaguar option).

It is interesting to note that the 1955 XK-140 has a much roomier cockpit then the XK-120.  Also the bucket seats help provide more space compared to the bench seats.  The seller said he appreciates the bucket seats when driving because he isn't sliding over to the passenger side the bucket seats keep him in the driver's seat.
