    Description
    You are bidding on a Jaguar XK140 roadster that has been modified for vintage racing. It may be road legal depending on your state. It is fast and exhilarating to drive. The paint has many small chips particularly on the lower half of the front of the car. The paint shines nicely. This car has no roof or side-curtains. The car looks like what it is; a handsome old race car that still goes like the dickens.

    I have owned car since May 2009. Used regularly. Car is heavily, and beautifully!, modified for racing and I would like to find more of its past history: owners, details of work carried out, races entered and won.

    Although this model began in October 1954 this chassis was built in June 1956

    Agreed Peter, the Chassis # corresponds to a '56 car. Do you have any other information on the car?

    No history known here before it cropped up on e-Bay in November 2005 in Hollywood California

    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?
