DIRECT TIES TO THE D-TYPE'S LE MANS VICTORIES

Following the Success of the XK120, Jaguar Released the XK140 in 1954 (Sold as a 1955 Year Model), with Major Updates to Both the Drivability and Performance, including Increased Cabin Space - Allowing for Taller Drivers, Rack and Pinion Steering, Improved Brakes and the Fitment of Telescopic Shock Absorbers.

Built in Three Body Styles, known as a: Fixed Head Coupe, Open Two Seater or Drop Head Coupe, this Jaguar Represents the Rarest Body Style Offered, the DHC, of which the Total Production is Just 2790 Examples.

Sold New to Amagansett, Long Island, New York in October 1956, with the Factory Optioned Higher Compression and 'C-Type' Heads, the History of this XK was Lost for Decades, with the Jaguar Discovered in in Sydney, Australia in the Early 90's by Jaguar Legend Ron Gaudion, who Proceeded to Undertake a Full Restoration of the Special Jaguar.

Ron Gaudion has been credited as THE ONLY PERSON to have a Direct Link to All Three Jaguar D-Type Wins at Le Mans, after Helping Build, then Crew the D-Type in '55, Before Moving to 'Ecurie Ecosse' for the '56, '57 and '58 Seasons, Preparing Both the Victorious '56 and '57 D-Types.

Presenting in Metallic Maroon with Fawn Interior Trim and Drop Top, this XK is Quite Stunning to Behold, and has even been Updated by 'Concours Restorations' of Tuggerah, NSW to a Modern 5 Speed Gearbox, Allowing for Easier and More Regular Touring.
