  • The Jaguar XK120 created a sensation at the 1948 London Motor Show. It was low and lithe, with a curvaceous envelope body, and it had a newly designed dual-overhead-cam six-cylinder of 3,442 cubic centimeters. The model took its name from a May 1949 speed run by a production roadster on Belgium’s Jabbeke Highway, where it was clocked at over 120 mph. There was nothing else like it on the market.

    Late in 1954, the chassis was redesigned, with larger torsion bars, better brakes, and rack-and-pinion steering. The engine was given higher-lift camshafts, which had the effect of raising horsepower to 190. There were also subtle appearance changes: the grille was given fewer bars that were more widely spaced, full-width bumpers were added, and flashing directional signals were located in the front fenders, just above the bumper.

    Moving the engine forward about three inches allowed for a roomier cockpit, but this required relocating the battery compartment into the front fender. The car was re-designated XK140, and two special equipment variants were added; the XK140 M, which included a crankshaft dampener, wire wheels, a dual exhaust, twin fog lamps, and windshield washers, and the XK140 MC, which added the big-valve cylinder head from the C-Type Jaguar, raising horsepower to 210. The three body styles continued in production through mid-1957, with each available in any of the three variants.

    The magnificent Jaguar XK 140 MC Fixed Head Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Opalescent's Maroon with a gorgeous biscuit leather interior. This incredible example has been frame-off rotisserie restored to the highest level and has won the coveted JCNA national first-place award! Scoring an amazing 99.96 points. Driven just a few miles makes this exceptional XK 140 MC ready to add to any premier collection. Incredible opportunity to acquire one of the best restored 140 MC Fixed Head Coupes on the market today, for the most demanding collector, investor or enthusiast who only wants the very best!

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
