This fine example of an Australian delivered XK140 Jaguar has gone through an extremely thorough restoration. Every facet of this Jaguar has been restored to better than new condition.
The exterior is finished in a beautiful red tone complementing the biscuit leather interior with contrasting piping. The interior components are all finished with correct original materials. The exquisite timber work has been painstakingly restored as has the gauges with a handmade African mahogany steering wheel connecting driver to the road.
The classic new wire wheels expose the upgraded power assisted Jaguar disc brakes making this car the perfect driving experience. The original matching numbers engine now feeds a new five speed gearbox which turns the restored original rear end.
Air conditioning has been discretely fitted under the dash and the original radio and optional valve driven amplifier also reside in their original locations. A new wiring loom now feeds all the electrical components driven by an alternator for modern reliability.
These cars are renowned for their iconic shape and this car with its arrow straight body lines and magnificently restored bright work is no exception. With an extensive photo library of the restoration process the quality of this vehicle is undeniable, making it a must for any serious car collection.
The XK140 currently shows 45 miles on the odometer since its completion.
