Car offered at:
www.itsaliveauto.com/1957_Jaguar_XKSeries_Saint%20Louis_MO_3940891.veh

Sellers description:
Price: $86,000
Exterior: Gray
Engine: I6 3.4L
Interior: Blue Leather Transmission: Manual
Trim/Package: Competition XK140 with overdrive and wire wheels
Fuel Type: Gasoline

This car was restored approximately 8 years ago and it looks amazing. the leather is fantastic and the paint straight and very glossy. Bright work is all nice dash is clean and polished.

Note this 140 has the Special Equipment option so it has the very rare "C" type head with other performance enhancements as well.

When we acquired this car, the engine was stuck. Our mechanic dropped the oil pan, inspected everything, and with some gentle persuasion, we were able to free the engine and get it running. It starts easily, holds very good oil pressure and shows no indication of overheating. In the course of getting it running we also installed a new fuel tank and fuel pump. Initially on starting up, it smoked quite a bit but that has all but disappeared. The next owner may find the engine's condition quite acceptable as is or given that it was stuck wish to undertake an overhaul, something our shop can negotiate as part of the sale.

Either way, here is a great example of an XK-140 coupe still running its original "C" type engine.

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?
