Classic Car Overview

3,442cc DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder Engine 2 SU Carburetors 210bhp at 5,750rpm 4-Speed Manual Transmission with Overdrive Independent Front Suspension – Live Rear Axle 4-Wheel Drum Brakes *Recent restoration *Diligently maintained *Delightful green color scheme *Matching numbers engine *Offered with JCNA Heritage Certificate This delightful XK140 SE was completed on the 26th of January 1955. At that time it was finished in Pas-tel Blue, and trimmed in Blue leather. The car was also fitted with the desirable SE package, SE for Special Equipment, and dispatched to the infamous Hoffman distributorship in New York. Although the cars early history remains unknown, the car was be the early 2000s owned by Jaguar enthusiast Brian James Murphy. In 2008 the car was purchased by a Minnesota based Jaguar enthusiast. While in his care, the car was subject to a comprehensive restoration, which included a full repaint and re-trim in the current color of Suede Green, with matching green leather interior. The engine compartment is also in very good condition with what is believed to be the factory data plate in place as well as the matching cylinder and engine block stampings. The car was acquired by the consignor in 2014, and since has been very well cared for, as evidenced by the number of recent receipts. On a recent test drive with a Bonhams representative, the car demonstrated great road manners. The steering was very tight and direct, and the brakes had a very good feel with good stopping power. Also, the engine was very responsive and demonstrated a very crisp exhaust note. All in all, this is a wonderful XK140 Roadster, one which would certainly be very welcome at shows, tours, or various historic rallies.
