Auction description:

Arizona | Lot 160

1956 Jaguar XK 140 MC Roadster

Offered Without Reserve

Phoenix, Arizona

27 January 2022

Chassis No. S812811DN

Engine No. G8943-8S

Cylinder Head Number G8943-8S

Documents Canadian Registration

Sporting example of a rare MC-specification XK 140 with overdrive

Retains matching-numbers engine block, cylinder head, and body

Delivered from the factory in Arbour Green paint over a Biscuit interior

Prepared rallying and touring; eligible for top-level events worldwide, including the Mille Miglia

Accompanied by a custom-fitted tonneau cover; documented by JDHT certificate copy, FIVA ID card, and bill of lading

The Roadster, or Open Two-Seater (OTS), offered here was originally delivered by Jaguar Cars of New York, with the date of dispatch 11 October 1956. The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust production record trace certificate notes the original color scheme as being Arbour Green over Biscuit, a striking combination. Further, the vehicle was optioned to “MC” specification. Known in Europe as the Special Equipment or SE model, these cars featured the cylinder head developed for the C-Type with larger SU carburetors, as well as dual exhaust with two separate mufflers, wire wheels, and Lucas fog lights. Most importantly, this XK 140 possesses matching-numbers engine block, cylinder head, and body as shown on the JDHT certificate. The vehicle is additionally fitted with an overdrive unit.

Restored by Doc’s Jags in Arizona, reportedly with the intention of running the Mille Miglia, this roadster sports a number of rally-focused modifications: The driver now sits within period-style bucket seats with contrast piping behind Brooklands screens and a safer padded wheel. In lieu of a convertible top, the car is accompanied by a purposeful, custom-fitted tonneau cover. The exterior features auxiliary yellow Lucas lamps and the front bumper has been removed for a dramatic and sporty look. Disc brakes have been fitted to all four corners, and the engine exhausts through stainless steel tubing. Completing the package are attractive Borrani wire wheels shod in Blockley tires.

Eligible for many of the world’s premier tours and rallies, this Jaguar XK 140 MC Roadster is accompanied a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust production record trace certificate copy, a FIVA ID card, and a bill of lading.

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?
