Description
Lot #1243 - Considered by many to be the ultimate XK, the XK 140 blends the svelte, delicate lines of the original 120 with some of the increased performance and improved real world usability found in the later, but not as handsome, 150. The XK 140 benefited from an up-rated 3.4 Liter/190hp DOHC Inline 6 engine with rack & pinion steering in place of the 120's recirculation ball system, new telescopic shock absorbers at all four corners, increased interior room, and even more robust, safer bumpers. This roadster or open two seater is an excellent example that was the recipient of a high quality restoration in the early '90s. It is finished in attractive silver over black leather with red piping, and rolls on correct knock-off wire wheels that have been chromed. The look is extremely sporty, yet refined, and is further complimented by period Lucas driving lamps. The car has all newly rebuilt brakes, fresh fluids, and recently fitted Avon tires. With excellent panel fit, superb interior, glistening brightwork and great road manners, this XK 140 is ready to enjoy.
