Auction description:

Lot 316

1956 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupé

Registration no. TOH 399 Chassis no. 807374DN Engine no. G7195-8

Goodwood Festival of Speed Collector's Motor Cars and Automobilia

24 June 2022, 14:00 BST

Chichester, Goodwood

£110,000 - £130,000

• One of only 479 right-hand drive XK140 dropheads

• Present ownership since 1996

• Professionally restored 1996-1998

• Concours award winner

• Refreshed in March 2021

One of only 479 XK140 dropheads manufactured with right-hand drive, '807373DN' left the factory finished in Birch Grey with red leather interior and French Grey hood, destined for delivery to Broad Street Motors in Birmingham. This car has the desirable overdrive gearbox, and we are advised that only the cylinder head is non-matching. An MoT certificate issued in November 1974 records the mileage as 39,366, and the vendor advises us that there is documentary proof of the distance covered since that date (current total circa 51,500).

The current vendor purchased the XK on 14th June 1996 as a runner in need of full restoration (sales invoice on file). He immediately sent it to marque specialists Fullbridge Restoration Co Ltd of Maldon, Essex for a full rebuild, which was completed in April 1998. Since then the car has won many awards for the work's outstanding quality (all invoices available). It has also been entered into the Champion of Champions concours at the NEC, Birmingham but, unfortunately, was unable to attend. More recently, in March 2021, the Jaguar was treated to a full makeover at Greencats, including four new tyres (invoice on file). Described by the private vendor as fully documented and in good condition, the car is offered with an old-style continuation logbook, JDHT Certificate, current V5C document, and the aforementioned invoices and photographic record of the restoration.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
