In 1954. the XK120's were superseded by the mechanically updated
XK140's fitted with the more powerful 190bhp XK engine which had
been used in the Special Equipment 120's. The new models were
visually similar to their predecessors differing in external
details only. The fixedhead had an extended roof line and. together
with the drophead Coupé. was given two small extra seats in the
rear suitable for children or adults for a short journey but they
made the XK's a little more practical for the family man. Overdrive
was now an optional extra and the car could be ordered with a
C-Type head in which case power output was increased to 210bhp. The
price of the roadster. all but a handful of which were exported. br/>was now £1. 27 (plus tax); Special Equipment versions were known in
the States as XK140M's and. when fitted with the C-type head. as
MC's. The XK140's maintained the XK's popularity but very few found
their way into competition although those that did performed well.
Today. many are prepped for competition by such specialists as Guy
Broad and Twyford Moors and represent formidable opponents.

This rare. very original. matching numbers. righthand drive 1955
Jaguar XK140 drophead coupé was purchased by the owner in 1974
after seeing it advertised with 60. 00 miles on the clock and in
immaculate condition. It was a lot more money than he could
afford but he dashed over to where the car was and wrote a cheque
for much less than the asking price and put it on the bonnet; after
20 minutes the gentleman owner stepped forward and picked up the
cheque. After a worrying week waiting for the cheque to clear. our
vendor finally picked up the car. This car has been fully
maintained and serviced by the vendor in his own workshop at his
farm; it runs and drives superbly having only covered about 6. 00
miles since its purchase. Finished in British Racing Green with
black roof and brown leather interior. this XK140 is supplied with
a V5C registration document. old registration documents and old Mot
test certificates which go back to 2001. This is a rare opportunity
to purchase an original XK140. righthand drive drophead coupé which
has not been restored but is still in excellent condition
