Ebay item 11/20/13
www.ebay.com/itm/Jaguar-XK-Drop-Head-Coupe-1955-jaguar-xk-140-mc-dhc-4-sp-od-ful ...
Car has a buy it now price of $145,000 for 6 days. 61k miles.

Sellers description:
Matching numbers 1955 factory 4sp/od XK140 SE'C' DHC (Chassis S817555DN), with many extra parts and nice XK collector items. Body-off restoration to original factory colors and specifications, basis of which was a one-owner, rust-free car. The drivetrain was done by one of the very best rebuilders in the US. The original title, sale invoice, and extensive maintenance history with receipts come with the car. The Pastel Green color was matched from the inner area of the bulkhead assembly. Original factory markings were preserved during restoration. Heritage Certificate included.

Some of the extras include matching bespoke luggage set, very rare correct factory Radiomobile AM radio (invisibly converted to AM/FM, MP3, etc.), of course original toolkit, manual, jack, and extremely rare factory Minor Replacement Outfit, Derrington steering wheel (worn out original black one included), set of five body-coloured wire wheels (the car presently sits on new chrome wire wheels, hubs, knock-offs, and tires), and the parts needed to convert the car to disc wheels and skirts, among other things.

A spare 'C'-Type cylinder head, overdrive gearbox, and unaltered positive earth Radiomobile AM radio set are included as well. Some unusual and interesting literature goes with the car, for example a first edition of 'XK140 Explored' (more than an inch thick of XK140 reference drawings and text), Jaguar Service Bulletins, a Lucas 400D electrical catalogue, and more... There are a LOT of spare parts of all kinds that go with the car, should they be desired.

The car has been fully fettled and runs & drives like a new car. I installed a 123Ignition distributor which makes it an even better driver. It is ready for extensive driving wherever you wish to go, not a trailer queen. What looks like scratches in the dash wood are not, they're reflections only.

The car is located north of Seattle, WA.

Shortly after adding XK140 #S817555DN to their collection, the new owners sent the already in excellent condition Jaguar to the expert craftsmen at Vintage Jag Works in Idaho to perform a highest-level restoration.

This Jaguar is for the discerning buyer who demands the best. The fit and finish throughout this stunning example of a timeless classic is beyond reproach. The cockpit of this roadster welcomes both passenger and driver with impeccable leather finishing and gorgeous woodwork. The bodywork, trim and brightwork are all in fabulous condition.

If a blue-chip collectible classic car is in your future, do yourself a favor and check out this fabulous 1955 Jaguar XK140, it is sure to please even the most discerning eye.

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?
