To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Elkhart Collection event, 23 - 24 October 2020. Maintained by the original owner and family until 2011Restored in the original color scheme of Pastel Blue over Dark BlueOriginal left-hand-drive example; matching-numbers 210 bhp MC engineDelivered through Charles Hornburg in Los AngelesOffered with tool roll, hammer, jack, and original Dunlop spareDocumented by Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate Please note that this vehicle is titled by the engine number. An original factory-documented MC model with the high-performance C-Type cylinder head, this XK 140 coupe was delivered new by Charles Hornburgs distributorship in Los Angeles. It reportedly remained with the family of its original California owner for 56 years before being sold in 2011 as a solid, straight, and original car, still with its original Pastel Blue paint.A full restoration was undertaken by the new owner, with exacting attention to fit, finish, and detail throughout, including paint matched to traces of undisturbed finish deep in the body. All chrome was reported to be either original or replated original parts, and the car was cosmetically refinished to show standards. The engine and transmission were rebuilt but have been largely left in their original patina. The carpet on the transmission hump is original and has been preserved. The radiator received a new original-style core, and new stainless-steel dual exhaust was fitted, along with vintage Koni shock absorbers. While the car is mounted on proper Avon Road Speed tires, the spare in the trunk is original Dunlop and is accompanied by a tool roll, hammer, and jack.In the current collections care, the Jaguar has been maintained to the same high standard while being occasionally used and enjoyed. Few XK 140 MC fixed-head coupes have been so nicely restored, in the original colors, with the original engine, and with an eye towards correctness. This is a high-quality, no-stories example, worthy of the best collection.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/el20.
