This rare XK140 MC Roadster is an elegant example of an iconic era of Jaguar motor history. With sleek and timeless styling throughout, it is ready for your favorite driving experience, at your favorite venue.

The Roadster received a body-off restoration completed to very high standards by Jaguar professionals. It is elegantly finished in a very rare color combination of Imperial Maroon over beige and is riding on chrome wire wheels with wide whitewall tires. Beginning with an original California black plate car, the body was stripped to bare metal and placed on a rotisserie; it was metal finished, leaded, and properly primed; and it was sealed, painted, color-sanded, and buffed to a fabulous finish. The interior, windshield, top, and side curtains are all new and correct, and all brightwork was replaced or replated as necessary. All mechanical systems and components have also been gone through, restored, or replaced as necessary. The engine, transmission, rear axle, and suspension were rebuilt to factory specifications, along with the chassis, and other parts have been refinished correctly. All other systems, including the electrical, hydraulic, cooling, and fuel systems, were restored or replaced; the car received all new rubber and seals and a complete, new wire loom. The car is in exceptional mechanical condition and has seen limited test mileage since restoration.

This Roadster is accompanied by photographic documentation of its restoration, as well as a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate. Recently, this XK140 MC was an award winner at the 2013 La Jolla Concours d'Elegance, attesting to the quality of its restoration. This MC Roadster is truly a car for the discerning Jaguar collector--a Special Equipment car that is, indeed, quite special.
