Description for Jaguar XK 1955

Gallery Junction is pleased to present this 1955 Jaguar XK140 Roadster.
From 1948 through 1954, the brilliant XK120 established Jaguar at the forefront of sports car manufacturers, with its graceful lines and impressive performance. While approximately 12,000 XK120s were built, its sound, original design could easily be improved and updated. The resulting XK140 arrived in late-1954, with a comprehensive list of improvements designed to maintain Jaguar’s appeal, especially in the all-important U.S. market.
Notable upgrades included the addition of precise rack-and-pinion steering, improved brakes and cooling, plus more cabin comfort and legroom, an improvement made possible by the relocation of the batteries. The most popular model in America remained the OTS (open two-seater), otherwise known as the Roadster, and of the 3,350 XK140 Roadsters built, only 49 were sold in England. At the U.S. price of $3,745, the cars continued to provide Jaguar’s characteristically excellent value. The bodywork was subtly updated, while the widely acclaimed, original stylistic elements were left intact.
The example on offer here was treated to a no expense spared frame off restoration. No corners cut and nothingleft unattended. The numbers match the numbers on the data plate and the car is in concours condition and is ready to make her debut as the car has not been previously shown. It is a truly stunning example of the marque and comes with a complete tool roll. This is an excellent car for any collection and is a great candidate for JCNA judging.
