1956 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe

See all the Images for this Car
Launched at Earls Court in 1954, and sporting the flowing lines of its predecessor, the XK140 presented several improvements. Of the XK140 Series, the Drophead Coupe was the elite model, appointed to provide ultimate luxurious open-top touring with its opulent wooden dash, comfortable leather seats, roll-up windows, and an all-weather convertible top. Originally finished in red, this XK140 was first delivered in Buffalo, New York. In 1991, the daughter of its longtime owner placed the Jaguar in storage, where it remained until 2002, when it was sold and sympathetically restored. Acquired by the current owner in 2010, the XK140 was shipped to Zurich, where it essentially received a new restoration. Receipts totaling approximately $130,000 document the new top, mechanical overhaul, and a show-level refinish in the handsome Battleship Gray it wears today. Nearly $30,000 was spent on the interior alone, a remarkable number considering the Jaguar retains its original black leather upholstery. Copious documentation of the meticulous work attests to the particular affection the consignor has for this XK140. The Drophead retains its original matching-numbers engine (per its JDHT Certificate), beautifully patinated black leather interior, burled wooden dash, painted steel wheels, and rear wheel spats. This impressive Jaguar, accompanied by its top boot, original tool roll, and restoration records, is a truly superb example of the sophisticated open XK140, and worthy of close inspection.
