1955 JAGUAR XK140MC ROADSTER









1955 Jaguar XK140MC Roadster
Chassis# S810416 - Engine# G1461-8S - Body# F10424 - Gearbox# OSL 2556B
Beautifully restored example! In 1954, Jaguar introduced the XK140 (as a 1955 model) which despite looking almost identical to the XK120, incorporated a number of changes. On the outside, larger and more protective bumpers were the most prominent change, along with minor modification to the grille now cast in one piece. In the engine bay, the engine was moved forward by about 3" allowing the passenger compartment to be slightly larger giving more leg room and a better driving position. Steering became rack and pinion instead of the recirculating ball steering box and the lever arm dampers were replaced by telescopic dampers. The standard engine was still the 3.4. These changes were applied to the OTS, DHC and FHC which also gained a small rear seat thanks to the battery being relocated inside the front wings behind the wheels. Overdrive was offered as an option and i 1956 a three speed automatic transmission became available. As with the XK120, the XK140SE (or XK140MC in the US) offered upgraded performance with a C-type head (210hp), wire wheels, foglights, twin tailpipe exhaust.
