1957 Jaguar XK140 OTS Roadster. Finished in Olde English With with dark red leather. Magnificent restoration of a numbers matching "work of art." $135,000 A true work of art; the lines accentuated by the rear fender skirts..a remarkable restoration of a numbers matching Roadster. Finished in Olde English White with dark red leather. The XK140 was introduced in late 1954 and sold as a 1955 model. Exterior changes that distinguished it from the XK120 included more substantial front and rear bumpers with overriders, and flashing turn signals (operated by a switch on the dash) above the front bumper. The grille remained the same size but became a one-piece cast unit with fewer, and broader, vertical bars. The Jaguar badge was incorporated into the grille surround. A chrome trim strip ran along the centre of the bonnet (hood) and boot (trunk) lid. An emblem on the boot lid contained the words "Winner Le Mans 1951-3". The XK140 is powered by Jaguar's venerable 3.4 liter straight six producing 193 BHP at 5500 RPM. The interior was made more comfortable for taller drivers by moving the engine, firewall and dash forward to give 3 inches (76 mm) more legroom. The Open Two Seater has a light canvas top that folds out of sight behind the seats. Like the XK120 Roadster, the XK140 version has removable canvas and plastic side curtains. The door tops, and scuttle panel, were cut back by two inches(50mm) compared to the XK120, to allow a more modern positioning of the steering wheel. The angle of the front face of the doors (A-Post) was changed from 45 degrees to 90 degrees, to making access easier. The Jaguar XK140 retains the beauty of the original XK120, with more creature comforts to make the driving experience even more enjoyable! Price: $135,000
