Jaguar XK 140 FHC, year 1956.
Colour black combined with a red leather interior and red carpet.
This fabulous Jaguar XK 140 FHC (Fixed Head Coupé) was imported from California (USA) to the Netherlands. The car was registered in 1996.
In the period 2005-2007 the automobile was extensively restored to top condition.
The chassis is still very clean, and the body shows a splendid panel fit and beautiful paintwork. The interior is largely original featuring the original leather upholstery.
The dashboard was restored, and the carpet renewed.
The car shows special details on the exterior like the strong 15-inch chrome wire wheels, the special mesh grille, and the large Lucas SLR 700 spot lamps.
These details give away the special and powerful mechanics under the slick body panels. This very special XK 140 is fitted with a 265 bhp 4.2 Litre XK engine fitted with three S.U. carburettors, a fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox with overdrive, more modern vented disc brakes on the front wheels and disc brakes on the rear wheels. The rear axle features a higher gear ratio and a limited slip differential.
The cooling was up rated, and an extra-large fuel tank was fitted. Starting the engine, it becomes immediately clear that this car means business: the big-bore exhaust system produces a magnificent soundtrack! This is a wonderful Jaguar XK 140 FHC for the adventurous Jaguar driver!
