Known History

One of 3,282 XK140 Roadsters built to left-hand drive specification, chassis A812238 dates from 1956. A desirable Special Equipment model, it was repatriated and UK road registered as `ESJ 423' on August 29th 1997. Professionally converted to right-hand drive and rewired by marque specialist The Carriage Company the following year, the two-seater has been in the current ownership since August 1999. Understood to have covered some 3,200 miles over the intervening fourteen years, sundry invoices on file show that the same period has seen the Jaguar benefit from attention to its water pump, coil, air cleaner assembly, spare wheel tray, heater, rev counter / speedometer / dual gauge and cam cover gaskets plus the fitment of reconditioned twin SU carburettors. Pleasingly displaying the same numbers to its body plaque and engine cylinder head that appear on its bulkhead-mounted chassis plate, the XK140 Roadster presents as an older partial restoration. Finished in White with Tan leather upholstery and chrome wire wheels, `ESJ 423' is offered for sale with a tool kit, assorted The Carriage Company paperwork, numerous S.N.G. Barratt invoices and fourteen MOT certificates the latest of which was issued without advisories and expires on October 24th 2013.
