* One of only 199 right-hand drive XK140 SE fixed-head coupés
* Supplied new to Fox's Glacier Mints Ltd, Leicester
* Known ownership history
* Most recently restored in the late 1990s/early 2000s
One of only 199 right-hand drive XK140 SE fixed-head coupés made, this pristine example has the 'C'-type cylinder head and was originally supplied to Fox's Glacier Mints Ltd of Leicester. The original buff logbook records the second owner as W H Peat of Leicester (1958) and lists two further owners: Ralph Hulett (1960) and Ronald Duffin of Leicester (1961 onwards). The XK has had only one owner since 1961 and is offered for sale only because of the death of the last recorded keeper.
'SJF 582' has been restored twice: the second 'last nut and bolt' restoration commenced around 1995 and took many years to complete, while the first restoration appears to have been carried out circa 1980. The rebuilds are documented in six albums of photographs. Finished in black with red leather interior, and equipped with chrome wire wheels, this beautiful car retains matching numbers and is presented in mint condition. Accompanying documentation consists of a JDHT Certificate; some old tax discs; a V5C Registration Certificate; current MoT; and an original Operating, Maintenance and Service handbook and oil chart. Coopercraft front disc brakes and a BroadSport header tank are believed the only deviations from factory specification.
