Specific description This lovely car is a Roadster equipped with the MC package, including all special equipment and C-Type cylinder head. It was sold new at Hollywood Motors in Los Angeles, CA. The second owner a gentleman from Stanton, California, bought the car in 1964. The third owner purchased it in 2005. He owns a British car repair shop in Southern California. He drove the car regularly and had the engine and transmission rebuilded. The car underwent a cosmetic restoration, although the car was never fully disassembled, but rather restored as was necessary over the years. Other work on the car (over $31,000 in receipts since 2005) included: new speedo cable, new exhaust manifolds, new knock-offs, rebuilt wheels, new tires, clutch adjustment, new aluminum radiator with electric fans, new points, numerous electrical fixes including rebuilt fuel gauge and tachometer, dash light repairs, valve adjustment, coolant change, new steering rack, latch repairs, new fur flex and weather stripping, rebuilt intake manifold and carburetors, repair heater valve and starter, rebuilt complete front suspension including new Konis and powder coated components, alignment, steering rack mounts, selective rechroming, and refinish steering wheel. As a result, the car runs and drives superbly. The engine is well-tuned and has great power. Gearbox, brakes and suspension work very nicely, making this car an unusually good driving example. The car is in excellent cosmetic condition and is a very high quality driver. The body and chassis are exceptionally straight and free of corrosion. The car is matching numbers and comes with its Heritage Certificate.

Model description The Jaguar XK140 is a sports car manufactured by Jaguar between 1954 and 1957 as the successor to the XK120. Upgrades included more interior space, improved brakes, rack and pinion steering, increased suspension travel, and telescopic shock absorbers instead of the older lever arm design. The XK140 was introduced in late 1954 and sold as a 1955 model. Exterior changes that distinguished it from the XK120 included more substantial front and rear bumpers with overriders, and flashing turn signals (operated by a switch on the dash) above the front bumper.
