Having rolled off the Browns Lane production line in January 1957, this XK140 MC, or as more commonly known SE (Special Equipment), was completed in Carmen Red over Black leather, later delivered to Jaguar Cars in New York to be sold to its first owner, a Mr Enright JNR of New York. It is understood in the early years, the XK made its way down the East Coast arriving in Palm Beach 1974, highlighted by the accompanying copy of the Florida Motor Vehicle Title of the time.Some 40 years later the XK arrived home to its country of manufacture and upon its return, it was decided to breathe life back into this rare find, therefore in early 2017, a full ground-up restoration was actioned by a South Bank, London based classic car specialist.An original left-hand drive, matching numbers and 2018 fully restored XK140 SE 'Special Equipment'. Finished in an elegant Ice Blue over Harbour Grey and Charcoal carpets, with all new trim and weather equipment.The bodywork was stripped to bare metal, repaired and fully repainted to the exceptional Metallic Ice Blue you see today. Pleasingly this desirable example was treated to a full reconditioning of it 3.4-litre engine with accompanying C-type cylinder head, all professionally rebuilt by a Jaguar specialist to the tune of over £16,000, invoices documented in the provided history folder. All remaining mechanicals were either restored or replaced, leading the chassis ready to be fully retrimmed to a perfectly paired Harbour Grey and Charcoal carpets, thus completing the transformation late in 2018.This showroom condition XK140 is supplied with the owner's detailed history file which contains a period 'XK140 spares catalogue', current V5, old MOT Certificates, copies from the Jaguar archives and countless restoration invoices (parts and labour).The freshly finished exterior, now presented in an attractive Metallic Ice Blue, boasts a deep shine showcasing the level of detail applied during its recent restoration. All exterior brightwork retains a classic shine setting off the final finished look.In true fashion of the 'Special Equipment' variants, this 1957 restored example features fully functional LUCAS PL headlights and twin fog lights. Both sets of lights are presented with clean and uncracked glass ensuring uninterrupted vision when required.The XK sits on 16" wire wheels, presented in highly desirable and unmarked condition, free from any serious signs of road wear and tear, with near to new tyres and plenty of trend all around.As a result of its 2018 completed restoration and sparing use, the XK features exceptional leather seats finished in Harbour Grey and the same can be said about the new Charcoal carpets. With no signs of damage or heavy wear, the seats remain in perfect condition, free of side splits, cracks and grazing.Having slid into the freshly restored and spacious cabin, you'll be faced with a fully functional instrument SMITHS cluster, will each and every dial and gauge face presenting no visible misting or hazing, promising a clear reading of running performance.Steering this iconic machine down the lanes is a period correct 17" black powder-coated steering wheel, offering a true representation of what it was like to control this beautiful 1950's Jaguar back in its heyday.Offering a true representation of high performance 50s motoring, this SE example, benefiting from a full ground-up restoration runs exceptionally.
