This Jaguar XK140 SE/MC Drophead was built on November 12, 1956 and delivered to the US one month later through Jaguar Cars, New York. As new it wore cream paintwork, with a black top and interior, much as it is today, with only the interior changed to red. At some point in its career, most likely in its immediate previous ownership it was restored to a high standard. It was acquired by Bob Lee while at the Scottsdale auctions in 1989, and so has resided in this world class automobile collection for the last 30 years! Its 'S' chassis prefix confirms the car to have been delivered new in that more desirable form of the Special Equipment models, which benefited from the performance addition of a 'C' Type cylinder head, wire wheels and dual fog lamps and twin exhaust.
Over the course of the last three decades, the Jaguar has shared a stable with some of the greatest cars in the world, while being carefully exhibited on museum display. Offering the best of all worlds as a tour car, the drophead coupes are a popular choice for long distance rallies.
