This 1956 Jaguar XK140 MC drophead coupe underwent a mechanical refurbishment in the 2000s and was acquired by the seller in 2019. The car is finished in maroon with a tan soft top over biscuit leather upholstery, and power comes from a numbers-matching 3.4L inline-six paired with a Tremec five-speed manual transmission. Features include electronic ignition, an alloy oil pan, an aluminum radiator, fog lights, LED taillights, rack-and-pinion steering, C-Type-style bucket seats, and under-dash phone charging ports. This XK140 is now offered in Maryland with removed seats, a four-spoke steering wheel, a Moss four-speed manual gearbox, tools, an operator’s handbook, service records, service manuals, and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name.

The drophead coupe features an integrated windshield frame, roll-up side windows, and exterior door handles. This example is said to have been repainted in its current maroon under previous ownership in the 1990s. Features include Lucas J headlights with HID bulbs, yellow-lens fog lamps, LED turn signals and taillights, dual fender-mounted mirrors, and chrome bumpers and bumperettes. The car is fitted with four-way flashers. The tan soft top features a plastic rear window.

The chrome 16” wire wheels wear two-eared knock-off spinners and are mounted with Michelin Pilote X TT tires that were reportedly installed in 2019. A matching spare wheel with a whitewall tire is mounted in the trunk. A rack-and-pinion steering system was reportedly installed in 2006, the front suspension was rebuilt with urethane bushings in 2007, and Gaz shock absorbers are fitted front and rear. A rebuild of the brake system is said to have been performed in 2006, and a remote vacuum brake servo was installed at the time.

The interior was refurbished in 2005 and features C-Type-style bucket seats trimmed in biscuit leather along with matching door panels and carpets. Dynamat sound insulation is reportedly fitted, and additional features include a burl wood dashboard that was refinished in the 2000s, lap belts with Leaper buckles, a glovebox-mounted Garmin DriveSmart 7″ GPS system, and an under-dash charging port. Two removed seats are included in the sale.

The 16″ Moto-Lita steering wheel fronts Smiths instrumentation including a reverse-sweep 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset clock, a 140-mph speedometer, and auxiliary gauges for amperage, fuel level, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The clock and a fuel sending unit were installed in 2005. The five-digit odometer shows 57k miles, 2,700 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 3.4-liter inline-six is said to have been rebuilt in the 1990s and features twin SU carburetors. A 2005 service reportedly included the installation of a new head gasket, an aluminum water pump, a heavy-duty crankshaft dampener, front and rear oil seals, a 12.5-quart alloy oil pan, a high-flow oil pump, a tappet guide hold-down kit, and electronic ignition. An aluminum radiator and overflow tank are also fitted. Service performed in 2020 included the installation of a high-torque gear reduction starter, spark plugs, wires, and a distributor cap and rotor.

Cylinder head stamping G7667–8S matches the engine block stamping and chassis tag.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Tremec T5 five-speed manual transmission. A Moss four-speed manual gearbox is included in the sale. The exhaust system features Guy Broad manifolds and wrapped stainless steel piping. A steel sump guard was installed in 2005.
