Brighton Motorsports is pleased to present this elegant 1956 Jaguar XK140 MC Fixed Head Coupe. This classic Jag is equipped with the special, most desired “C-Type” cylinder head that enables the massive inline 6 to produce a strong 210hp.

The XK coupe is a beautiful representation of the curves that were unique to that era of automotive design. The name “XK140” was derived from the cars ability to reach a top speed of 140mph – in 1956! This example is wearing a new coat of Olde English White paint that has been expertly applied at our restoration facility. The interior is in the factory correct red and is in excellent condition.

In the early 70’s this car was freshened, driven, and then relinquished to storage in the late 1970’s, right after the owner at the time came out from a Christmas party in Dallas and found both sides of the car keyed. We acquired it last year after it was stored for 30 years and began a light restoration.

Our cosmetic restoration included re-chroming all of the bright work (at a cost of $7k), new paint, new carpet, new fuel tank and lines and new radiator. We re-built the carburetors, installed a new water pump, new hoses, all the belts, and the brakes at each corner are new.

The motor, clutch and transmission operate perfectly and the new tires are the same exact make and model of Pirelli’s that originally came with the car.

This Jag would be a great addition to any collection.
