Auction Blenheim Palace

Chassis Number S813150
Year 1957
Make Jaguar
Model XK140 Roadster

This desirable 'Special Equipment' specification example, fitted with more the powerful C-Type cylinder head, original to this car along side its matching numbers engine, has in recent years been subject to extensive work. Having been brought back to bare metal, no expense has been spared and its new paintwork and interior trim are difficult to realistically fault.

Simply a beautiful example of the evocative XK140, its matching numbers engine has recently been rebuilt by marque specialists Jaguar Workshop. Additional work includes all new-weather equipment and trim-work, making this wonderful British sports car ready to be enjoyed by its new custodian.

Auction description:

Lot No. 444 - 1957 Jaguar XK140 SE Roadster

Estimate: £80,000 - £90,000

Dispatched from Browns Lane in 1957 to Jaguar Cars New York, returning 60 years later

A left-hand drive Special Equipment with matching numbers as confirmed by Jaguar

Total, ground-up restoration in the UK including a complete engine rebuild

Superbly finished in Ice Blue Metallic over Harbour Grey leather and Charcoal carpets

The engine bay is a work of art. Chrome wire wheels and chrome luggage rack

The owner's file contains a period XK140 spares catalogue, current UK V5c, old MOT certificates, copies from the Jaguar archives and detailed restoration invoices

Dispatched from Browns Lane in January 1957, this left-hand-drive XK140 Roadster equipped to ‘SE’ specification was delivered new to Jaguar Cars New York. Some 60 years later, the XK made the return journey and upon arrival in the UK, the decision was made to set about a complete, ground-up, restoration. Pleasingly, its original engine remained in place and this was sent to a Jaguar specialist to be stripped, inspected and fully rebuilt, and a detailed invoice within the history folder shows a cost including ancillaries of over £16,000. In the meantime, the bodywork was taken back to bare metal and completely refinished in a beautiful shade of light metallic blue. All mechanical components were either restored or replaced and the full rolling chassis prepared to be reunited with the rebuilt engine. The interior was beautifully re-trimmed in grey leather and new carpets fitted.

This sparkling XK now presents in showroom condition and is described as running and driving very well as you might expect. It's accompanied by the owner's file which contains a period XK140 spares catalogue, current V5c, old MOT Certificates, copies from the Jaguar archives and detailed restoration invoices.

Offered at a very sensible guide (the cost of restoration alone exceeds the lower estimate) this is an opportunity to own a very stylish, sought after and collectable Jaguar from a point in time when the world was very different. All that is left to do is to brim the tank, fill the picnic basket and set off on a beautiful sunny afternoon.

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?
