The Classic Sale At Silverstone Festival 25th - 27th August 2023

The Classic Sale at Silverstone Festival 2023 Cars 114 Registration: NWO 500 Chassis No.: 804083 Estimate: £60,000 - £70,000 Specialist: Rob Hubbard Telephone No: 07775 511825 Lot 617 c.1955 Jaguar XK140 Coupé This is a rare find indeed, an original, unrestored XK140 Coupé finished in its original Birch Grey with a red leather interior. It’s a true time-warp example believed to have last been on the road around 1970 and the last MOT within the history file states an expiry of 1971 which also adds to that theory. The odometer is showing 26,610 miles which may well be correct due to the time it’s been off the road. It’s supplied with a small history file and the original buff logbook showing two keepers. The rear wheel spats are in the back of the car as they are shown to be missing in the photos. The car sits well and looks remarkably healthy but, for over 50-years this XK has formed part of at least two Collections and has received little or no use. The XK has recently had a minor service having been unused for some time. New fluids, plugs, points etc saw the XK roar into life, showing good oil pressure and running well. However, a more serious recommissioning would be advised prior to active use, tyres being of unknown age for example. Your inspection is welcomed to establish just how much work (or how little) will be required to return this lovely mid-1950s Jaguar to the road. The XK comes with its rear wheel spats, removed at time of photography - there is something so delightful about an XK on steels with spats. It’s a rare car and they are sought after, so it could be a worthwhile project and with that UK-registration number, a tour of the North Coast 500 would surely be on the cards. The Warwickshire Collection - This car has formed part of an extensive collection of British and European Classics and your inspection is encouraged. More Details Lot 617 Bid On Lot 617
