Jaguar XK140 Roadster.
This very early car was the 5th of only 73 roadsters built in RHD and is fitted with the pre-production boot handle that distinguishes the first 8 XK140s produced.
Finished in the unusual factory colour combination of British Racing Green with Grey leather it was originally sold by Henleys of London before finding its way to Performance Cars in around 1956/1957 who returned the car to Jaguar for uprating to Special Equipment specification with C-Type head, 2 inch sandcast carburettors and body coloured wire wheels. 
In August 1957 the car was entered the car into 27th BARC Members Meeting at Goodwood where it was driven by Bunny Munns and as such is believed to be the only XK140 roadster to compete at this famous venue.
The car subsequently had only 5 owners, one of which was for over 30 years. The car was subject to a total professional restoration in 1996 and has covered very few miles since. It is currently undergoing a full program of JD Classics race / rally preparation to full FIA specification. When complete it will be eligible for the most prestigious historic events including the Mille Miglia. Please contact us for further details.
