1956 JAGUAR XK140 SE - FIXED HEAD COUPE - BEAUTIFUL DRIVER QUALITY RESTORATION
Shown here on eBay. I am presenting this absolutely gorgeous. numbers matching. XK140 MC FHC. What a beautiful looking and driving motorcar! This Jaguar has tremendous appeal with its near perfect B;lack exterior along with its unmarked Biscuit interior. Distributed from the Hornburg Jaguar dealership in Los Angeles. California in July 1956 (see the Jaguar Heritage Certificate). it was restored in the not too distant past. and few miles have been put on it since.
HISTORY AND OWNER PROVENANCE
The history of this Jaguar as I know it. aside from it's origins in California. is that it was in Ontario. Canada for a time. then purchased by the previous owner in Detroit. Michigan for a short sale. wherein I then purchased the car. The Canadian owner had purchased it from the owner that restored it. The very good news is that it started life in California and that has perhaps contributed to its exceptional condition. On the title and Jaguar Heritage certificate images you will see a BW suffix after the chassis number. This designates the Borg Warner automatic gearbox. You will also notice that the brass data plate under the bonnet does not have the BW suffix after the cahssis number. It is a reproduction data plate and for some reason the restorer did not put the BW suffix at the end of the chassis number. Perhaps the original data plate was lost during the restoration. The previous owner reported that he had heard of data plates being lost during a restoration and sometimes they actually fall off from the electrolytic reaction between the four aluminum rivets and the steel body. He also stated that he communicated regularly with one of the worlds foremost XK historians in Australia and promptly sent him photos of the numbers. He felt that the chassis number. C-Type cylinder head and block may have the properly peculiar Coventry factory hand stampings but the data plate is clearly a reproduction.
This is a really nice FHC and the reserve set for this motor-car is a fair amount below its actual value. I will be happy to answer any calls at 315. 778. 6494 or by email at rcfiii@clarencehenrycoach. com. I would prefer an inspection in person to ascertain all that has been reported and feel free to contact me for any and all inquiries.
Thanks for looking and I hope this Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe resides in your motor garage soon!new window new window new window Condition Report
The engine starts instantly at the touch of the starter button and has a glorious sound from the factory issued gdual exhausts. The RARE Borg Warner automatic gearbox works well and in fact everything works except the clock. Under the bonnet. the all matching numbers C-Type engine with the high performance C type head looks fantastic and sounds right.
The Jaguar was restored on the chassis rather than being taken completely apart (according to previous owner) and therefore I believe that the body has never been off the car. However it seems that the doors. bonnet and boot lid were taken off for the paint work. Unusually. the doors close Rolls Royce like. with the slightest push of a finger. The hinges on these heavy doors were not the best design and it's a miracle that they do not as a result sag. One of the doors has a misalignment in the gaps but it can probably be rectified by a competent body man. It looks like all of the exterior chrome has been re-plated. and it looks new with the exception of a small chrome chip in the grille.
The interior is nearly new with Biscuit leather and matching wool carpets. The burl walnut wood dash and cappings are in fine condition but not perfect.
The underside has been detailed and is clean and tidy. I can see some rust pits on the chassis that was treated and painted over. not rust holes of course. but I want to make clear that I really do not know where it spent its years after it left California. I cannot say that all of the sheetmetal is original.
The paint looks as good in real life as it does in the photos. and black is the most difficult color to paint properly. There is hardly a flaw in the bodywork and it is done in a most professional manner. It is not a perfect Pebble Beach entry but rather a really. really nice driver that will bring a great deal of pleasure to the new owner.Mechanical Motor Excellent windows Functional (all) transmission Excellent wipers Functional (all) brakes Excellent instruments Functional (all) suspension Excellent radio Operational Cosmetic Body Excellent SEATS Excellent PAINT Excellent CARPETS Very Clean GLASS Excellent dash Very Clean WHEELS Excellent HEADLINER Very Clean Terms of Sale
