Lot Number: 617

c.1955 Jaguar XK140

The Warwickshire Collection - This car has formed part of an extensive collection of British and European Classics and your inspection is encouraged.

This is a rare find indeed, an original, unrestored XK140 FHC finished in its original Birch Grey with a red leather interior. It's a true time-warp example believed to have last been on the road around 1970 and the last MOT within the history file states an expiry of 1971 which also adds to that theory. The odometer is showing 26,610 miles which may well be correct due to the time it's been off the road. It's supplied with a small history file and the original 'Buff' logbook showing two keepers. The rear wheel spats are in the back of the car as they are shown to be missing in the photos.

The car sits well and looks remarkably healthy but, for over 50-years this XK has formed part of at least two Collections and has received little or no use, so it needs to be regarded as, at best, a serious recommission. Your inspection is welcomed to establish just how much work (or how little) will be required to return this lovely mid-1950s Jaguar to the road.

Auction description:

Lot 183

1955 Jaguar XK140 Coupé

Goodwood Members' Meeting|14 April 2024

Registration no. NWO 500 (see text)

Chassis no. S804083DN

Engine no. G3135-8

• One of only 843 right-hand drive XK140 fixed-head coupés

• Last used on the road circa 1970

• Offered from an important collection

• Engine recently recommissioned and running

One of only 843 XK140 fixed-head coupés made in right-hand drive configuration, this original and unrestored example is a rare find indeed. Presented in its original colour scheme of Birch Grey with red leather interior, it is believed to have last been on the road around 1970 (the last MoT on file expired in 1971). The odometer reading is 26,610 miles, which may well be correct.

The XK sits well and the engine runs; however, for the last 50 years it has formed part of at least two important collections, seeing little or no use. As the car had been unused for some time, a minor service was carried out recently, which included new fluids, spark plugs, ignition points, etc. The engine now shows good oil pressure and is running well; nevertheless, more thorough recommissioning would be advised before further use.

The car comes with a small history file and the original buff logbook showing two keepers. Although not shown, the rear wheel spats are with the car. It should be noted that the registration 'NWO 500' is not recorded in either the HPI or DVLA databases. Accordingly, prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves with regard to this car's registration status prior to bidding.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
