Produced between 1954 and 1957, the sports-luxury line of Jaguar XK140 cars was the successor to Jaguars highly successful XK120 post-war era car. Notable upgrades included better brakes, rack and pinion steering, increased suspension travel, and modern tube style shock absorbers, which replaced the old lever/arm design. Introduced in late 1954 and sold as the 1955 Jaguar XK140, additional changes included more substantial bumpers and modern flashing turn signals. Furthermore, double amber lights located above the front bumper helped to differentiate the 1955 Jaguar XK 140 from the XK 120. Ironically, the XK120 owners started asking for similar lights to be installed on their cars, so this is not a true indicator today.
