Ebay item 7/31/20
Current bid: $20,100 reserve not met 18 bids 6 days left in auction, seller classicautoshowplace, 42k miles.
The XK 140 MC was the top-of-the-line Jaguar. The Special Equipment models, designated as M and MC, are fitted with wire wheels and for lamps mounted above the front bumper. The MC was also equipped with the C-Type head, developed for the C-Type Le Mans race car, and the horsepower was raised to 210 at 5,750 rpm. Also, with the C-Type head came a dual exhaust system which used two separate silencers, with pipes running through holes in the chassis cross members and emerging below the rear over-rider. Additionally, it is fitted with a four speed manual transmission with overdrive.
*Matching Numbers: Original plate with numbers is fastened to firewall, and match those stamped on parts.
*Engine: 3.4 liter-3442 cc- 6 Cylinder twin overhead cam, 210 HP at 5,750 rpm
*Exterior/Interior Colors: Dark (Midnight) Blue paint, complimented by the Biscuit/Tan interior, top, and side curtains.
*Ground-up restoration: Total body-off, ground-up restoration completed in 2010. Every part was removed, cleaned, refurbished, repaired, or replaced. The engine was completely rebuilt at the same time.
Five Speed manual Ford T5 transmission w/manual overdrive. The T5 transmission was selected because it was quiet, smooth, reliable, and the gear ratio was almost identical to the original.
Rear crankshaft seal conversion. The original rope rear crankshaft seal was a known XK problem. It notoriously leaked oil heavily. So when the engine was rebuilt, and up to date modern rear seal conversion was installed.
Zeus Front Disc Brake Conversion, installed spring 2017
Five spoke wheels (powder coated)
Coker Classic Tires with 3 1/2” Whitewalls
Radiator Booster cooling fan (manual switch)

*Hairline crack in water jacket. The crack was permanently sealed and to this day absolutely no liquid is lost or visible on/in the engine compartment or on the pavement after the car is driven
That was ten(10) years ago and I have NOT had a problem. I’ve driven the car about 500 miles or less each season. The car has been driven in temperature ranges as low as 45 degrees in the spring and fall, to 95 degrees in the summer, in city low speed stop and go traffic, to highway speeds, and have never lost a drop of coolant. In addition, and to be sure there would not be a future problem, an epoxy coating material was also placed over the area and painted.
Engine number: G2450-8
Chassis Number: A810896DN
Body Number: F10906
Why is the car being sold? Simply because I’m 81 years old, and it’s time for someone else to enjoy the car.
