This 1955 Jaguar XK140 SE Roadster has been in the seller’s family since 1986 and is finished in silver over a red interior. The car is powered by a 3.4-liter DOHC inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission and equipped with twin SU carburetors, a stainless steel exhaust system, chrome bumpers with overriders, and 16″ knock-off wire wheels. A refurbishment was carried out in the 1980s, and more recent work included replacing the brake shoes and wheel cylinder pistons. This XK140 is now being offered at no reserve with a soft top frame, tonneau cover, spare parts, a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, and Connecticut registration in the seller’s name.

Finished from the factory in red, the car received a repaint in silver during the 1980s. The seller notes that the driver’s door received dent repair and was refinished in 1990, though the color is mismatched from the surrounding panels. Paint crazing and cracks are shown in the gallery, along with other close-up images of the finish. No windshield washer reservoirs or nozzles are installed, and a soft top frame and tonneau cover are included in the sale.

Replacement wire-spoke 16” stainless steel wheels with two-eared knock-offs are wrapped in 185/80 series Michelin Radial X tires, and a matching spare is found in the trunk. The four wheel drum brakes were recently serviced with a replacement fluid reservoir, shoes, and pistons per the seller. The front suspension has reportedly been overhauled and Spax shocks have been added out back.

The interior was reupholstered from black to red during current ownership with leather seat covers, matching door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes a dash-mounted rear view mirror, chrome passenger grab handle, fresh air vents in the footwells, and storage behind the folding seat back and in compartments in the door panels.

A four-spoke steering wheel fronts a central instrument panel that houses a 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset clock, a 140-mph speedometer, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, amperage, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer was reset to zero after being previously repaired and now shows approximately 600 miles. Total mileage is unknown.

The 3.4-liter inline-six features double overhead camshafts and twin SU carburetors. Aftermarket intake and exhaust manifolds and a stainless steel exhaust system were added, the cooling system was refreshed, and a replacement wiring harness with solid state relay was installed. The seller states that the generator brushes should be cleaned and the heater circuit is closed. A replacement cylinder head was installed at some point and a photo of the engine block stamping G1694-8S matching the Jaguar Trust Certificate is shown.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Corrosion is noted on the underbody.

The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate lists the factory colors, serial numbers, and a manufacture date of December 14, 1954.

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?
