Description for Jaguar Other 1957

One repaint from new. All numbers match except engine. VIN S810918DN. Last on the road in 1975. It has been in my home garage for 30 years. I purchased from a peanut farmer who had it stored in a metal building. No accidents ever.
Looks like the original paint is gunmetal with a red interior and tan top. Great original chrome.
The original engine number was G2387-8S. Engine now in the car is a period MC block G3613-8S with a 150S head VS1717-9. The car came with a 150S engine in pieces, which was sold 2 years ago. The car body has been raised up 1.5 inches, probably to fit the 3 carbs. Comes with a MK10 intake manifold and 3 HD8 carbs. Two 140 carbs are included. Engine needs a complete rebuild. Very very minor rust. I believe the top is the original mohair one.
Have you ever seen original vinyl covered rope fender welting?
Inspections welcome.
Clean NC title in hand.
I have more pictures if needed.
You will not find a better XK 140 roadster to restore on the planet.
