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 the XK120's were superseded by the mechanically updated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.

Originally shipped to Hoffman of New York in December 1954. this
XK 140 drophead coupé is believed to have spent some time in
California before arriving in Europe in 2012. Photos show a
remarkably complete and unspoiled car with excellent bodywork. It
was restored and converted to righthand drive by a well known
Northern Ireland Jaguar restorer and enthusiast so the paint. br/>chrome and trim are to a very high standard. This is a well sorted
driving XK which performs well and looks very good. It was fully
serviced and checked through by XK specialists Twyford Moors in
September 2014 at a cost of £4. 00 since when it has been used
sparingly. The engine shows good oil pressure. it has an unusually
quiet Moss gearbox and the drum brakes are well set up. Finished in
blue with black soft top roof and cream leather interior. this
XK140 is supplied with a V5C registration document. a Heritage
Certificate and a history file containing invoices and photographs.
The XK140 drophead coupé is perhaps the most sought after of all
the XK models as it combines the swoopy lines and the veneered dash
of the XK120 with the extra cabin space and improved steering of
the XK140. The practicality of a folding hood and windup windows
make this model particularly suited to UK conditions. It is the
rarest of the three XK140 body styles with only 2. 00 being
produced before the introduction of the XK150 in
1957.
