Classic Car Overview

Heres your chance at a gorgeous 1956 Jaguar XK 140 MC Roadster. Its the product of a 10-year $136k restoration (with receipts) to ensure it delivers all you love in stylish European motoring. We all love a classic Jaguar because it is a handcrafted reminder of how fast can also be elegant. Its all about the sweeping curve that starts at the front fender, and flows all the way to the rear bumper in a wave pattern. It looks like a racers scarf flowing at 100 mph. Thats why its essential to find an XK as exemplary as this one. The flow of all of the panels must meet perfectly to make one cohesive masterpiece. If they were not as straight and tight as this one, then the spell of this magic Jag would instantly be broken. Of course, it also helps that this one sparkles a little brighter with every bit of brightwork seemingly worked on during this decade-long full restoration. And because there has been less than 800 miles put on this car since its re-debut, and the always treated with the ultimate care, the cream white paint has the look of porcelain. One peek inside, and youll be instantly transported back to Browns Lane in 1956. Thats because the restoration paid special attention to bringing back the old-world atmosphere of real leather. The low-cut doors of the roadster enhance the pure driving experience, and theres even a snug-fitting roof if you need some weather protection. When you slip into the drivers seat, youre instantly reminded that the XK 140 had one of the best sports steering wheels around for both classic style and grip. The full set of Smiths gauges are a nice reminder to this cars speedy pedigree. And as you keep digging into the details, youll really fall in love. Elegantly stitched saddle bags in the doors; crisp looking knobs across the dash; and a trunk with full-size spare, jack, and knock-off hub mallet. This is a very detailed classic. The XK1240s motor is what made it a legend. The 3.4-liter inline six cylinder looks elegant in the slim engine bay, and its believed to be original to the car. But theres more to this story. The Type-C tag on the polished head is the telltale sign of a special MC designation, which raised the advertised output from 190 hp to 210. But, beyond just power, these XKs were the driving darlings of their day, thanks to features like the four-speed manual transmission and race-inspired front suspension. Even the beautiful color-matched wire wheels were decided to help with brake cooling. The sale comes complete with Jaguar Heritage Trust paperwork, restoration photos, car cover, and receipts detailing the huge $$$$$ investment in restoration. Its a beautifully presented turn-key classic ready for those who appreciate upper-class distinction. Call today!!!
