Car to return to auction 4/16
www.silverstoneauctions.com/1956-jaguar-xk140-roadster

Auction description:
Race Retro Classic Car Sale
Registration: 453 UYK
Chassis Number: 813052
Engine Number: G9710-8
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 3400cc
Year of Manufacture: 1956
Estimate (£): 70,000 - 80,000

This particular example is a 1956 left-hand drive, XK140 Roadster and was first delivered to Jaguar Cars, New York on the 14th December of that year, finished originally in Carmen Red with Black Leather. The car spent most of its life in the USA before being carefully selected and brought to the UK by our vendor in 2014.

A matching numbers example, it has clearly been well maintained and much loved and unlike many cars from the United States, it has accumulated an ample history file with invoices dating back to the 1960s!

Amongst these records are details of 453 UYK's substantial restoration, which took place over numerous years a short while prior to coming to the UK. This restoration was carefully and tastefully undertaken with the only substantial change to the cars originality being a colour change from its previous bright Carmen Red to the much more attractive colour of Jaguar Dark Green, and with the steel wheels also painted in this colour and enhanced by chrome Rim Embellishers and Hub Caps, this 140 has a wonderful 'period' look. The engine bay looks very, very good as does the boot interior which is complete with a set of period tools attached to the underside of the spare wheel cover. The interior looks in excellent shape with the seats appearing to have been recently restored and the black door cards, dashboard, and carpets are as you would hope. There is a small copper plaque, attached to the dashboard behind the passenger grab handle, declaring this Jaguar to have been a factory 'Replica' of the car used at Jabbeke in Belgium which achieved a speed of 141.5mph, but we cannot warrant this.

Since its arrival in the UK, the car has been subject to further finishing touches and re-commissioning work to ensure it is in superb all-round condition. This included a full refurb of the front suspension and the brake system along with the fitment of a new fuel tank. The car has also benefitted from a new tonneau cover along with the previously new side screens modified to ensure a really good fit with the hood.

A most admirable car presented with an excellent history file and in similarly fabulous condition. A true all round great of the Jaguar marque, equally at home as an elegant continental tourer or on twisty country lanes.

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?
