For sale again a jagxk.com/cars-for-sale/category/jaguar-xk140-ots.html
Sellers description:
Chassis number: S812828
Engine number: G9015-8
This Jaguar XK140 open two seater or "roadster" was restored over a 20 year period by a previous owner and was finished by Twyford Moors. Since then the car has been upgraded for modern driving and now benifits from an alternator, electric cooling fan, 123 electronic ignition and an uprated wiper motor. It has also been converted from left to right hand drive.
This XK140 looks stunning in old english white with red interior and has a good set of wet weather gear. This classic look is increased by running on its original steel wheels and spats

Seller's description:

1956 Jaguar XK140

Colour White

Odometer

Engine size 3400

Auction DetailsSeller Type Private

Town Meuse

Country France

Restored over a long period by a former English owner who brought it back from the United States in the 1990s. The restoration was completed in 2016 by English specialists Twyffords Moors.

Matching numbers confirmed by a certificate of origin.

Supplied with full (unused) weatherproof equipment

Collector's registration document present and exempt from MOT (pre-1960)

This 1956 XK140 OTS manual transmission with matching numbers has undergone a full restoration by the UK specialists at Twyffords Moors. The vendor states that the vehicle runs very well, benefiting from its modified cooling system with booster tank and electric fan. A complete vehicle with a weather package, which the seller has never used as he only drives the car in good weather.

Certificate of origin present

Matching numbers

Originally sold left-hand drive with speedometer/odometer in MPH

Converted to right-hand drive during restoration

Collector's registration document

Exempt from roadworthiness tests (before 1960)

Acquired by the vendor in 2017

70,357 miles (113,000 km) indicated (not certified)

Condition

Bodywork well aligned and in good condition

No signs of accidental damage or corrosion

Fitted with aerodynamic rear wheel covers

Folding soft top and all-weather equipment offered in near-new condition

Chrome and paint finishes are very well preserved

Beautifully reupholstered red leather upholstery

No noticeable wear to seats, carpets or controls

Instruments and lighting appear to be in very good condition

Jaguar enthusiasts will undoubtedly appreciate the originality of this XK140, as apart from the cooling system upgrades and steering conversion, it remains extremely close to its original condition inside and out. Although the restoration took place some ten years ago, the car is still in excellent condition, with minimal signs of use and no obvious corrosion. The vendor reports no notable defects or problems with the cabin electrics.

Mechanicals

3.4-litre twin overhead cam XK engine

Four-speed manual gearbox

Improved cooling system now incorporating a boost tank and electric cooling fan

Impeccable engine compartment

Indicated as being in good working order

The XK models didn't just look good, they really were, thanks to the all-new XK engine with twin overhead camshafts, designed by William Heynes. Reaching 190-200 km/h was easily possible, which was quite remarkable for the time, and the XK140 handled particularly well, incorporating several improvements over its predecessor - many of which were developed at Le Mans where Jaguar raced from 1951 to 1953.

According to the vendor, the car is a joy to drive, with apparently sound mechanicals and no apparent faults. Everything is in very good condition under the bonnet and the installation of the previously mentioned cooling system upgrades is very neat.

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?
