Jaguar XK140 Roadster (1954)
Racing Green Cars
Location: Hampshire, United Kingdom
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 grille remained the same size but became a one-piece cast unit with fewer, and broader, vertical bars. The Jaguar badge was incorporated into the grille surround. A chrome trim strip ran along the centre of the bonnet and boot lid. An emblem on the boot lid contained the words "Winner Le Mans 1951–3". The interior was made more comfortable for taller drivers by moving the engine, firewall and dash forward to give 3 inches (76 mm) more legroom. The Jaguar XK140 Roadster 3.4L, we are offering has had one former keeper since 1996 and started life as a LHD export car. After repatriation an extensive restoration was carried out, including conversion to RHD and the replacement of the engine with another standard 3.4L. There is a photo album of the work, dated 1994. Finished in British Racing Green with Sage Green interior and Chrome wire wheels.
