    Auction description:
    Automobiles of London
    Wednesday, October 27, 2010
    1955 Jaguar XK 140MC Drophead Coupé

    LOT: 203
    Estimate:
    £50,000-£60,000
    Chassis No. S817111
    Offered Without Reserve

    - Desirable “MC” specification
    - Attractive colours, complete with luggage

    This left-hand drive 1955 XK140, chassis number S817111, is a very desirable, high-performance “MC” variant. Among its many desirable features, this XK140 is equipped with a number of competition-bred upgrades. Among them, the car is equipped with a high-flow C-Type cylinder head, a pair of enlarged two-inch SU H8 carburettors, overdrive, dual exhaust outlets, driving lamps and “knock-off,” wire-spoke wheels. When new, the “MC” package added just $295 to the base price of the XK140.

    This XK140 includes a set of period-style luggage and is well maintained, with a unique colour combination. These XK140s are excellent event cars and wonderful for touring, particularly with the added performance of the “MC” specification.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    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?
