1956 JAGUAR XK140 MC FIXED HEAD COUPE
Finished in most desire All Black with beautiful Deep Red leather interior. This incredible motorcar has been painstakingly restored with no expense spared. This MC roadster comes with the special equipment package, along with the electric overdrive and C-type head, making this one of the rarest and most desired of the 140-series. We are proud to offer what we believe to be the finest example of this desired model to be found anywhere on the market. Bid with confidence – you will not be disappointed HISTORY OF THE JAGUAR XK140 MC: Launched at the 1954 Motor show the XK140 was very much an evolution of the XK120, and introduced several practical drivability features, including rack and pinion steering, replacing the 120's recirculating ball system, and telescopic dampers replacing the archaic lever arm dampers. Some options previously fitted to the XK120SE model like the more powerful engine, and thicker torsion bars were now made standard. The engine and bulkhead were moved forward three inches compared to the earlier cars, and the extra space used to fit occasional rear seats (albeit very small!). The roadster did not have the extra seats. The exterior changed little from the 120, except for the fitting of much heavier bumpers, similar to those on the large MK VII. However the FHC roofline was extended backward and 1 1/2 inches up, to give much more space inside than the 120 FHC. Another identification point is that the car was outfitted with more chrome and badges than the XK120, including chrome strips along the middle of the hood and trunk. A cast radiator grille with fewer and thicker slats replaced the more delicate and expensive XK120 item. A nearly identical design was later to be used on the Jaguar 2.4 liter (MK I) in 1956. During its small 3 year production run, just over 8800 Jaguar XK140s were produced. Of those imported to the United States, the smallest production was of the Fixed Head coupe. The XK140MC gave standard wire wheels, two foglights. overdrive and twin exhaust system to replace the standard single pipe. As with the XK120 a futher option was an more powerful 210 bhp engine with the "C" type cylinder head, which was Le Mans tested and proven and larger 2 inch SU carburetors. The rare special equipment 'MC' package was installed on this Jaguar before it left the factory. The 'M' includes a crankshaft damper, wire wheels, dual exhaust pipes, and twin fog lamps. This particular XK140MC is capable of reaching 130 mph due to its rare factory-installed Laycock de Normanville overdrive which was featured in only approximately 550 or less of the entire production, most of which are longer in existance.

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
