Auction description:
Lot 190
1954 Jaguar XK140 MC Roadster
To be auctioned on Saturday, March 8, 2014

A matching-numbers example
Recent full restoration
Consistent JCNA award winner

This striking car, one of the earliest XK140s, was completed on November 5, 1954, and it was shipped to Max Hoffman, the New York distributor, in the middle of the month. It has been completely restored, with the work being substantially completed in 2011 but continual refinement still occurring in 2012. It has been painted Pastel Blue and has a black leather interior and black canvas top. The engine was completely rebuilt in 2011, and receipts for which are available. It includes a full top with proper new-condition side curtains, as well as all factory tools, which include the brass knock-off hammer, a spark plug spanner, and even axle oil in its original tin. Also in the trunk are a spare tire with a matching chrome wire wheel and the original jack. On the dashboard are Breitling stop watches, for recording lap times and other sporting measurements.

The car was a consistent winner on the Jaguar Club North America circuit, with post-restoration scores ranging from 97.72 to 99.52. It has earned similar honors at many regional and local multi-marque shows, with the car placing Fourth Overall in the JCNA Champions division in 2011, which is a testament to the outstanding quality of this XK140. A restoration book that covers the 2007 to 2011 period comes with the car, as well as service records and a Heritage Certificate from the Jaguar-Daimler Heritage Trust, which attests to its production and original specification. Also included are judging sheets from its show history and a meticulous log book kept by its owner. A finer XK140 would be difficult to find.

Sellers description:

1955 XK140 OTS Jaguar roadster is over 50 years old and it looks and runs as good if not better than when it was brand new. From the information we have there has only been 4 owners and the last one has brought this vehicle back to the way it should be with a full frame off restoration completed in late 2004. This car has a new roof, interior, carpets and paint. All parts were replaced to as close to original as possible, the restorer Jim Soley followed the Jaguar restore books and ordered new parts from Jaguar to complete this fantastic automobile. This jaguar starts immediately and runs fantastic, the motor and transmission was sent away to california to have everything tuned and set as close to original as possible. I have personally driven this amazing machine and believe this to be one of the finest vehicles I have ever seen. The numbers are as follows: chassis#s8810137 body#F10140 engine#G1232-3 gearbox#0SL1892B This car is priced to sell, so I will tell you the reserve is at a fair price.

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?
