Jaguar XK140 FHC

vehicle description

Jaguar XK140 FHC  

General Info

Genuine UK supplied RHD car.  Comes with the all-important  Heritage Certificate.  Restored to a very high standard.   Approximately 200 or so miles since completion.  Finished in Caviar Metallic with sumptuous cream leather interior.

 

The Restoration

Do not mistake this with an average restoration.  Absolutely no expense was spared during the restoration. Every last nut & bolt has either been replaced or restored. Receipts on file total around £100,000 for parts & labour during 2011 & 2012.

On top of this the cost of a good starting donor car makes this car a great buy for the next owner.

Body

The car was stripped down to a bare shell.  The shell was totally restored using new replacement panels where necessary.

All repairs needed where leaded where possible & attention to detail made.  The shell was then given several coats

of paint in a 2010 Jaguar colour called Caviar metallic.  The bonnet is a rare fluted vented version & just adds one

more dimension to the many curves & lines on this car.

Engine

The correct 3.4 ltr engine has been fully rebuilt.  On completion the engine was fully painted, with new painted exhaust manifolds 

to the SE spec twin exhaust system.  The car has not travelled many miles since, probably around 200 or so.

It sounds throaty & at the same time purrs.

Interior

The seats have all been re-trimmed in sumptuous cream leather that compliment the Caviar Metallic colour fantastic. 

All the wood has been replaced or restored & is all like new.  A discreet I-Pod connection is placed behind the dash.

Notes

We have on order a set of Chrome wire wheels (which I think may look better)  however either set available, chrome or painted body colour.

Our cars are available to view during opening hours or 7 days a week by appointment.
