Improvements as for XK140 roadster, plus an extended roofline which spoilt the looks in return for a pair of occasional seats or more luggage space. Prettier than the XK150, but the same scuttle, wing and sill rusting problems, which will have had more time to develop. A few (less than 400) late cars with automatic.
