This 1955 Jaguar XK140 MC is a left-hand-drive “Special Equipment” roadster that is said to have undergone a refurbishment that began in 2000 and was completed in 2015, following the selling dealer’s 2014 acquisition. Finished in red over a tan interior, the car is powered by a 3.4-liter DOHC inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Additional features include black 16″ wire wheels, twin SU carburetors, dual exhaust outlets, Pertronix ignition, Brooklands-style windscreens,and a Moto-Lita steering wheel. Work in May 2021 included cleaning the carburetors and changing the oil. This XK140 SE OTS is offered with a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, a removed stock windshield, a removed soft top and side screens, refurbishment photos, a service handbook, and a clean Florida title under the selling dealership.

Originally finished in Pastel Green, the car reportedly was repainted red during the aforementioned refurbishment. Features include Lucas “J” headlights, Brooklands-style windscreens, dual side mirrors, a Monza-style fuel filler, dual exhaust outlets, and bright-finished trim and bumpers. The car is accompanied by a removed stock split windshield and a removed soft top and side screens. The selling dealer notes an indentation at the bottom of the right-front fender and a paint blemish near the fuel filler.

Black-finished 16″ wire wheels are secured by chrome two-eared knockoffs and are mounted with 215/70 Kumho Solus KR21 tires.

The interior is said to have been retrimmed in black-piped tan upholstery by Original Spec Jaguar Interiors of Muncie, Indiana. Additional interior details include black carpeting, Simpson latch-and-link lap belts, a center mirror, and a dash plaque. A stretch mark is noted on the driver-side seat upholstery.

A black Mota-Lita steering wheel fronts centrally mounted Smiths instrumentation that includes a 140-mph speedometer, a reverse-sweep tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer indicates 69k miles, approximately 2k of which have been added by the selling dealer. True mileage is unknown.

The 3.4-liter DOHC straight-six was factory rated to make 210 horsepower in Special Equipment specification (known as “MC” in the United States), thanks in part to a cylinder head sourced from the C-Type competition cars. The engine is said to have been rebuilt during previous ownership by Twin Cam Sportscars of Sarasota, Florida. Work conducted by the seller to complete the refurbishment reportedly included installation of Pertronix electronic ignition and a spin-on oil-filter adapter as well as replacement of the wiring harness, fuel tank, and a stainless exhaust system. Induction is handled by dual SU carburetors that are explained to have been cleaned during a May 2021 service, at which time the oil also was changed. The selling dealer states that oil leaks are present and that the car has only traveled approximately 2k miles since the rebuild.

Stamping G3266-8S on the engine block matches the number listed on the data plate and on the Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate. The cylinder head also bears the same number as well as a letter C on the top.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.

The car is accompanied by a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate that lists build and dispatch dates, plus component numbers and the factory color scheme of Pastel Green with Suede Green upholstery.

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?
