More About this Item


Description: 1957 JAGUAR XK 140 COUPE
No reserve

Titre de circulation français
Châssis n° S815640

- Sans réserve
- Restauration de qualité
- Rare version coupé, finition supérieure
- Ligne splendide, moteur de légende

L'XK140 apparait pour répondre aux demandes du marché américain, elle est dotée de pare-chocs plus résistants, d'une nouvelle grille de calandre, d'une position de conduite plus confortable grâce à un nouveau système de direction et d'un moteur plus puissant doté de nouvelles culasses.
La voiture de la collection a été restaurée et se présente en fort bel état. Comme son suffixe S l'indique il s'agit d'une version équipée de la culasse type C. Elle fut entièrement restaurée par son précédent propriétaire en Suède au début des années 2000, puis celui-ci ramena l'auto en France lors de son déménagement. C'est lors d'un rallye que notre collectionneur tomba amoureux de la voiture restant stupéfait par son état général.
A l'intérieur, la finition du coupé est nettement plus luxueuse que celle du cabriolet et celui-ci ne fait pas exception, avec une sellerie en cuir biscuit superbe, des moquettes neuves, des contreportes refaites et un tableau de bord en bois vernis sur toute la largeur, ce dont ne bénéficient pas les versions découvertes. Une autre particularité de cette voiture est sa boîte de vitesses automatique Borg-Warner, un équipement rare sur ce modèle, qui est également équipé d'un autoradio Jaguar et de deux cendriers. Révisé récemment par le mécanicien personnel de notre collectionneur, le grondement feutré du six-cylindres offre une résonnance particulière dans cet habitacle fermé, dont l'atmosphère chaleureuse constitue une invitation à prendre la route.

MERCI DE NOTER QUE LA VOITURE EST VENDUE SANS CONTROLE TECHNIQUE



French title
Chassis n° S815640

- No reserve
- High quality restoration
- Rare coupé version, higher level of finishing
- Wonderful styling, legendary engine

The XK140 was produced to meet the demands of the US market, with more substantial bumpers, new radiator grille, new steering system giving a more comfortable driving position and a more powerful engine with new cylinder heads.
The car in the collection has been restored and is presented in very good condition. As the 'S' suffix indicates, this is a version with the C-type heads. The car was completely restored in Sweden at the start of the 2000s by the previous owner who then brought the car with him to France. Our collector fell in love with the car when he came across it at a rally, bowled over by its condition.
The coupé interior had a more luxurious level of finishing than the cabriolet and this example is no exception, with superb biscuit-coloured leather upholstery, new carpets, refurbished door-linings and a full-width varnished wooden dashboard not available on the convertible versions. Another feature rare on this model is the automatic Borg-Warner gearbox. The car is also fitted with a Jaguar radio and has two ashtrays. Serviced recently by the collector's mechanic, the muffled roar of the six-cylinder engine has a special resonance in the closed cockpit, enticing the driver to take to the road.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CAR IS SOLD WITHOUT TECHNICAL INSPECTION
