In accordance with its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this delightful XK140 was completed on December 7th, 1954 and dispatched on January 6th of the next year. At that time, it was finished in Cream and trimmed in Black leather with White piping and a matching black top. The roadster was shipped to Jaguar's East Coast distributor, Max Hoffman of New York, where it was sold new to its first owner. The first owner must have been a speed junkie since this Jaguar was specified from new with the desirable MC option that added 20 extra horsepower thanks to the C-Type heads fitted to the engine. The Roadster was acquired by the collection in January 1994 from an auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the time of purchase, the car had received an interior retrimmed in red leather and a fresh paint job—although the engine bay appears to be largely untouched.

This wonderful example of Jaguar's mid XK series roadster is sure to provide its next owner with years of happy top down motoring.

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?
