Lot #1298 - The XK140 succeeded the XK120 when Jaguar realized refinements were needed. They incorporated a number of improvements that made Jaguar sports cars the best in value and among the best performance sports cars available at the time. With rack & pinion steering, a larger cockpit and a stiffer chassis, the XK140 was one of the very best sports cars of the mid-1950s. Fresh from their victories at the 24 Hours of LeMans, Jaguar used its competition pedigree to sell the XK140. This highly desirable roadster is a professional older restoration by a highly regarded Canadian restorer. Equipped with wire wheels, dual exhaust and windscreen washers, this handsome open two-seat roadster is stunning with its glossy red exterior finish, bright chrome work and black leather upholstery.
