1955 XK140 SE DHC

This fantastic XK140 DHC is the only car finished in the factory colour scheme of Mediterranean Blue with Dark Blue hide and carpets with a Dark Blue hood. 

The 140 DHC is held by many to be the best all-round car in the Jaguar XK series combining open motoring and the characteristic lines of the earlier models with the benefits of practical weather equipment, improved rack and pinion steering and increased room for both driver and passenger.

This car, having been restored to full JD Sport Specification from a genuine matching number one-owner car, takes the development of the XK range to the next level and offers breath-taking performance and handling while retaining the classic good looks of this iconic sports car.

The upgrades featured on this example include JD Sport Touring specification engine incorporating the car’s original ‘C’ Type cylinder head, JD Sport 5 speed gear box, JD Sport limited slip differential, JD Sport handmade stainless steel manifold and exhaust system, 2 inch sandcast SU carburettors, Uprated JD Sport alternator, JD Sport front and rear disc brakes, JD Sport power steering and suspension handling package, JD Sport high efficiency alloy radiator (original supplied) with electric cooling fan, Inertia reel seat belts, Moto-Lita steering wheel and Fire Extinguisher.

Since its full chassis off restoration and final build by JD Classics the car has been meticulously maintained and covered only limited miles and consequently presents in fantastic condition and offers the chance to acquire a highly desirable classic Jaguar with modern high-performance sports handling.
