The successor to the Jaguar XK120, the classic Jaguar XK140 used the same basic architecture as the preceding model but featured several interior and body upgrades including full-width bumpers, increased interior space and rack and pinion steering. Similar to the XK120 models, the 140 was offered as an open two-seater roadster, drophead Coupe convertible or hardtop coupe. If you are looking to buy Jaguar XK140 autos, original color options included Black, Birch Grey, Pastel Green, Pearl Grey, Pacific Blue, British Racing Green, Dove Grey, Suede Green, Red, Lavender Grey, Battleship Grey, Cream, Pastel Blue and Maroon. Optional upgrades included a MC performance package, which used the C-Types competition cylinder head, twin exhausts, adjustable fog lamps and windscreen washer jets. A Jaguar Roadster with these original options would be highly sought-after.
Production for the Jaguar XK140 lasted from 1954 to 1957, and in 1956 the XK140 became the first Jaguar sports car to be offered with an automatic transmission. If you are looking to buy Jaguar XK140 autos, you'll be interested to know that most of the cars imported into the United States had wire wheels. The open two-seater, also a popular American import, was also popular for its light canvas top that folded out of sight behind the seats. If you are in the market to purchase classic Jaguar XK140 models, be sure to check the condition of this top if included. Original removable canvas and plastic side curtains and the original tonneau cover would further increase the desirability of the vehicle.
