private sale: www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/jaguar/xk-140se/2325033.html
Description: 1957 Jaguar XK-140SE DHC, The original owner is believed to be Briggs Cunningham famous car racer, collector and car builder. An appraisal from Chicago 1996 proves it and my telephone conversations with Lady Cunningham from 1990 confirmed it by her personally after I identified to her car combination and the model.
I owned the car for over 23 years and decided to offer it for sale.
It is matching number car and it is a SE - special edition model with an extra 20HP motor, wire wheels, and racing headlamps etc.
The car runs presently but due to breaks condition and exhaust, it is not road worthy. So I am selling it As is where is, my warehouse in Oregon where the car was stored since mid-1990s
Please contact me for more details, copies of documents and all questions you might have.

Car on BAT:
Location: Hillsboro, Oregon 97123
76k Miles Shown, TMU
4-Speed Manual Transmission
Red with Black Soft Top
Red Wire Wheels
Spare Cylinder Head
Stored in 1992

Private Party or Dealer: Private Party
This 1957 Jaguar XK140 SE Drophead Coupe was acquired by the seller in 1992 from a neighbor in Illinois. The fuel tank was removed and cleaned at that point but never installed, and the car has been stored for the past 27 years. Paperwork indicates that the car was previously owned and raced in Europe by the family of Briggs Cunningham, an American entrepreneur who modified and raced ’50s Jaguars, yachts, and more. The bodywork has been refinished in red with a black soft top, while the black interior has sustained damage from rodents, and the carpet has been removed. The engine bay is equipped with a 3.4-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and the seller reports that the engine was started in November 2019 for the first time since being stored in the early ’90s. This XK140 convertible is now offered with some records and paperwork, an SE cylinder head, and a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.
The exterior has been refinished in red with a black soft top. The paintwork and exterior includs chips in the finish noted by the seller.
Red wire wheels are mounted with BFGoodrich Silvertown whitewall tires. The seller notes that the insert for the spare tire was damaged by rust and has been discarded.
The interior features individual bucket seats with black upholstery over painted metal flooring that shows wear. Black door cards feature stowage pockets and wooden cappings. The seller reports that the seats have been damaged by rodents and that rust in the trunk has been cut out. The trunk area and other interior details can be seen in the gallery.
A factory four-spoke steering wheel sits in front of a wooden dashboard with Smiths instrumentation including an analog clock, a 6k-rpm tachometer, and a 140-mph speedometer. The five-digit odometer shows 76k miles, and true mileage is unknown.
The 3.4-liter DOHC inline-six is equipped with dual SU carburetors and a C-type cylinder head. The seller reports that the engine ran in 1992, after which point the fuel tank was removed and professionally cleaned. The engine was then started again in November 2019 after 27 years of storage. A spare SE cylinder head will accompany the sale and is shown in the gallery below.
The engine is paired with a four-speed manual transmission and a solid rear axle. Additional photos of the underside are presented in the gallery.
The data plate shown above lists the original chassis, body, and powertrain numbers. The S suffix on the engine number indicates the fitment of special equipment. The Oregon title and the previous title both list the engine number as the car’s identification number, with a 5 instead of an S.
An evaluation from 1995 states that the car was owned by Briggs Cunningham and raced in Europe in the 1950s.
