Supplied to New York in 1956, this gorgeous XK140 went to Holland in the nineteen nineties and received a fully documented, chassis-up restoration to the highest standards. It is a full matching numbers car with a recorded mileage of just over 36,000 miles and has covered 10,000 miles since the rebuild.

It is a genuine, matching numbers SE with a C type cylinder head.

The car was purchased by a gentleman from the US in 2016 to use for the London to Lisbon Classic rally which it completed without fault.

The Jaguar is in fine order and drives superbly as you would expect. It is fast and reliable. 

It is also a rare, fully matching numbers DHC SE.
