To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Elkhart Collection event, 23 - 24 October 2020. High-quality older restorationIncludes its fully rebuilt matching-numbers MC engine, no. G 9336-8SCurrently fitted with a replacement engine for touringVery attractive color combinationOffered with a collection of original literature, side curtains, and curtain bagAccompanied by Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate The MC version of Jaguars XK 140, known in Europe as the Special Equipment or SE model, featured the cylinder head developed for the C-Type, as well as dual exhaust with two separate mufflers, wire wheels, and Lucas fog lights. Offering 210 bhp, it was the most powerful stock road-going XK 140 available.The roadster, or open two-seater (OTS), offered here was originally delivered by Jaguar Cars of New York, with the date of dispatch 8 November 1956. The Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate further notes the original color scheme as being Pacific Blue over Red with a Sand top, a livery which must have been quite striking and may be worth consideration for a new owner. A later owner oversaw a restoration in the present dark-blue-over-dark-blue color scheme, and since that time the car has been sparingly used and enjoyed. In fact, for some time it ran an engine specially built for the road, with the original completely restored on a nearby stand in the current collection. In preparation for the sale, the original engine is being included with the car and thus it retains its original, matching powerplant, which the new owner can opt to reinstall. The car is accompanied by a selection of brochures and memorabilia, spares including a high-performance fan, and the side curtains in their bag. At cataloguing the car had recorded 20,510 miles, and its condition is commiserate with that use since restoration.This would be a delightful XK 140 for a new owner to drive and enthusiastically enjoy on the open road, in any number of tours and rallies for which these Jaguars are so ideal.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/el20.
