Originally delivered in the classic combination of British Racing Green over Tan, this Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe now sports the handsome combination of Black over red leather hides. The car completed its build at the Browns Lane Jaguar plant on November 27, 1956 but was not dispatched until January 14, 1957. The new Jaguar had been ordered by Jaguar Cars of New York and sported a left-hand drive steering arrangement. The lucky first owner is recorded to have been a Mr. John Loeb.

Recently, the interior was subjected to a restoration, and subsequently, the whole treatment looks very tidy. The finer details inside include a Becker Europa radio, a Burlwood Veneer dash, and a period correct Moto-Lita steering wheel to further aid the driver in connecting to the road. Additional work includes the installation of new body weather stripping, seals, and grommets. Mechanically, it is reported that the engine runs smooth thanks to properly tuned carburetors and a new exhaust manifold. Cosmetically, desirable slim XK120 bumpers adorn the exterior of the vehicle. Rounding off the fixings is a set of new Firestone whitewall tires.

A Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate is offered with the car, as is a tool roll, jack, grease gun, and owner's manual. The XK140 sits in the sweet spot of the early XK line by benefiting from the technical developments, but not yet compromising on the body lines first seen on the XK120. A well-sorted example such as this should serve its next owner well over the coming years and will certainly be responsible for putting a smile on many faces. Thanks to the powerful, 3.4-liter inline six twin-cam engine and overdrive transmission, these XK's are great cars for rallies and high-speed motoring, in such incredible style and luxury.

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?
