The 1957 Jaguar XK140 (and the other model-years) brought rack and pinion steering to the lineup, instead of the recirculating ball steering box, as well as telescopic dampers to replace the old-style lever arm dampers. The standard engine on the 1957 Jaguar XK140 Roadster continued to be the 3.4L. If youre looking to purchase a Jaguar XK140 Roadster, the 1957 model-year is a great option because it incorporated all the changes and upgrades that happened between 1954 and 1957 and prior to the release of the XK150. The XK140 was offered as a Roadster, or Open Two-Seater, as well as a Drop Head Coupe and Fixed Head Coupe, however the Roadster has always been the most popular.
