Description

French title
Chassis n° S815540

- No reserve
- High quality restoration
- Rare coupé version, higher level of finishing
- Wonderful styling, legendary engine

The XK140 was produced to meet the demands of the US market, with more substantial bumpers, new radiator grille, new steering system giving a more comfortable driving position and a more powerful engine with new cylinder heads.
The car in the collection has been restored and is presented in very good condition. As the 'S' suffix indicates, this is a version with the C-type heads. The car was completely restored in Sweden at the start of the 2000s by the previous owner who then brought the car with him to France. Our collector fell in love with the car when he came across it at a rally, bowled over by its condition.
The coupé interior had a more luxurious level of finishing than the cabriolet and this example is no exception.
