1954 Jaguar XK1954 (55) Jaguar XK 140 Fixed Head Coupe
I purchased this car in 2016 with the intention to do a full restoration. I have since downsized my garage and must sell some of the unfinished projects.
The only thing that we have done since I purchased this vehicle was take it to my mechanic who oiled down the cylinders, turned the engine, installed new spark plugs, pulled the starter and cleaned the bendix and briefly started the engine off of a gas can just to make sure it would run. I did confirm the Chassis number as S814149DN, the block number as G3006-8S but the head number is G8660-8 - I did not check the gear box number. The vehicle build date was April 1955 but the title has it as a 1954, a California registration from 1973 found in the vehicle has it listed as a 1955 so somewhere between then and when I got the car there must have been a typo made. The information provided to me at the time of purchase indicated the mileage of 36081 as actual but I have no way to verify if that is correct.
The Heritage Certificate indicates the original distributor was in CA and the car came from California when I purchased it where it had been stored for many years. It seems like a very solid car and I have not seen any significant rust issues. The front and rear bumpers are included with the car but not shown in the photos. I will take photos and add them to the listing.
