This is a very nice 1955 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe. It is an original Right Hand Drive car and is an older restoration finished in White with Tan Leather interior.

The XK140 was introduced in October 1954 at the London Motor Show as the successor to the XK120; it was easily distinguishable from its predecessor by its more substantial front and rear bumpers. a radiator grille with fewer slats. and a chromium strip which ran along the centre of the bonnet and boot.

A major improvement was to lengthen the cockpit to make the car more comfortable for taller drivers. Under the bonnet the 140 had the superb six cylinder XK 3. 4 litre engine. basically the same as the Special Equipment XK120 unit. producing an impressive 190bhp at 5. 00rpm. compared to the 160bhp of the standard XK120. Like the earlier car. however. the XK140 retained independent front suspension with semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear.

The new model sold very well indeed. with orders flooding in for two main reasons: firstly. the proven excellence of the old XK120. which had won so many peoples' hearts. and also because of the enormous success Jaguar was enjoying in its greatest period of international motor racing. winning Le Mans in 1951 and 1953 with the C-Type and in 1955. 1956 and 1957 with the D-Type. The XK 140 variant on offer is the agelessly handsome fixed-head coupe. which had an interior trim far more elaborate than the roadster. complete with superb wood cappings.

Our car has just arrived from a large private collection and has been subjected to an older restoration. It is finished in White with Tan leather interior and the whole car has a very nice patina of age. I would imagine it was restored in the nineties but we have no paperwork on file for any of the work done. It is a genuine RHD FHC and will come with a new MOT and with UK registration papers. It runs and drives well but due to a period of storage a thorough service is recommended.

There is no rust appearing on the bodywork and the leather has a lovley feeling of age. The car rides on wire wheels and presents very nicely.
