This Jaguar XK140 Fixedhead Coupé was first registered on 11th June 1955 and is an original righthand drive model, only 842 examples were manufactured for the UK market, of which this is a survivor. Finished in Old English White with a contrasting red leather trim, 140 FLF is supplied with a V5 registration document and MoT test certificate valid until 19th June 2013.

Lot Details
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number 804183

Make Jaguar
Model XK140

One of only 842 Right Hand Drive examples produced, chassis 804183 was supplied in June 1955 by Litherland Motors of Liverpool to a Mr. Thomas Melling of Southport. Interestingly this example was originally painted in Mediterranean Blue with a matching dark blue leather interior, the first known XK140 to be painted in this shade.

Sporting the appropriate registration number '140 FLF' this is a really lovely classic 140

This particular XK140 is an original, right-hand drive, Fixed Head Coupé manufactured in 1955 and is one of only 842 right-hand drive, home market cars. It was first registered on June 11th, 1955 by Litherland Motors of Liverpool and sold to a Mr Thomas Melling of Southport finished in the classic combination of Old English White with contrasting red leather trim and red carpets. Around five years ago, prior to our vendor's purchase, the Jaguar was subject to an extensive overhaul and, body-off, respray by a leading marque specialist. According to the accompanying paperwork the work carried out included;

Bodywork; doors, bonnet and boot lid re-fitted to produce excellent shut lines. Entire body fully prepared, primed and painted, including door shuts, engine bay and wheels. Brightwork polished and replaced where necessary. Body cavities wax injected and new body sealing rubbers fitted all around. Mechanicals; brakes serviced, gearbox rebuilt, oil & filters changed. Engine bay wiring fully overhauled. Cylinder block, head and radiator cleaned and painted. Cam covers and carburettor dash pots polished. Interior; Seats 're-Connollised' and the carpets cleaned. The account for this apparently totalled some £12,000.

It should be noted that at some stage in the car's history a stronger, more powerful 3.8-litre engine from the later XK150 has been fitted.

The expenditure has continued during our vendor's ownership and the car has been fitted with new stub-axles enabling the fitting of a set of chrome wire wheels, an engine tune and carb set-up and has covered only 400 since competion of the work. The car remains in excellent condition and is sold with a fresh MOT Certificate, its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, and the desirable registration number - '140 FLF'.

This is a really lovely XK140, one of the nicest we have seen.
