I just got one of these myself and so have my eye on them. This one seems interesting.
1955 Jaguar XK140 Roadster
Now is your chance to purchase a rare piece of English heritage. The Jaguar XK140 was produced from 1955 to 1957. The body and design is a step up from the XK120 giving the driver more interior room. Other factory modification make the 140 a more refined automobile.
This car has been completely restored to a upper drivers class level. It is clean and detailed on top and underneath. It starts, drives and looks like a new car. No adverse engine noise. The suspension is well done and she floats over bumps. The transmission has a known fault and will lock in first gear intermittenly. Rocking the car will free up the shifter. All numbers match except the cylinder head. The head number should match the engine block number but does not on this car.
Cylinder head number = G7929-8S
Engine block number = G1614-8
The “G” prefix on the head means this head did come off a XK140. All other number do match the VIN plate.
The exterior on this XK140 is painted Old English White. The paint job is nicely done with no flaws found.
The interior on this XK140 is Red. The interior is slightly dated but still in wonderful shape. There are no rips or tears to be found. It has a Black Cloth top in good shape with no rips or tears. Side curtains are also included.
