This is a very rare and desirable XK 140 Drop Head Coupe with special equipment. It has a 3442cc/dual over head cam inline 6 cylinder with it original C head & block. 4 speed transmission with overdrive, 2 + 2 seating, rack & pinion steering. This is an excellent restoration with beautiful paint, new biscuit leather interior with Wilton wool carpets, perfectly refinished wood dash and door caps, chrome wire wheels, correct white wall tires, fog lights and dual exhaust system. Magnificent undercarriage detail on a dry rust free California car. If you are after a classic Jaguar XK look no further, this was one of the best XKs ever built!

The vitrified exhaust manifolds are in perfect condition. The mufflers and dual stainless steel exhaust were wrapped entirely with heat tape, professionally done.

The car was taken on a 1,000 mile trip, at times running at 70 – 80 MPH at over 8 hours at a time, with absolutely no concerns. Transmission: The Moss overdrive transmission was substituted by a manual Borg Warner T5, providing for an exceptional driving experience.
