Offered here is a Jaguar XK140 FHC that has been in long-term family ownership since 1975 when it was purchased by our vendor's father. As a competent engineer, he embarked on a comprehensive restoration of the Jaguar and subsequent maintenance thereafter. The Heritage Certificate from Jaguar Cars Ltd. Browns Lane (October 1993) confirms that it left the production line on 17th July 1956 and was despatched to Henlys of London in its original colour of Suede Green with a matching green leather interior. The history file contains a comprehensive account of the initial restoration and the subsequent work leading up to the car's repaint in 2007. A series of invoices dated 2006 from Paul Roach Jaguar detail a significant amount of mechanical work carried out prior to stripping the car and preparing it for a fresh coat of paint. The respray in Old English White was carried out to a very high standard by the Bury St. Edmunds Paintshop and the quality of the finish still impresses today.There is a good photographic record of this restoration in the file. More recently the care and maintenance of this venerable Jaguar have been entrusted to well-respected automotive engineers Abbott Racing and in January of this year, the XK was fitted with a new fuel tank and exhaust system. The car generally presents really well in gleaming white with silver wires and with sound mechanics is very usable, however, a little cosmetic detailing here and there could turn it into something special.

With the growth in value of classic Jaguars over the last fifteen years generating an increasing number of disposals it's now rare to have long-term ownership cars come to the market and this lovely Coupé certainly fits the bill. A stylish fifties Jaguar awaiting her next owner.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
