The Jaguar XK140 was manufactured between 1954 and 1957 with some 3,276 lefthand drive OTS (open two-seater) models predominantly destined for America and a mere 73 left for the rest of us. It was the successor to Jaguar's highly successful XK120. Upgrades included better brakes, rack and pinion steering, increased suspension travel and modern tube type shock absorbers instead of the older lever arm design. The primary visual change however was the more substantial front and rear bumpers and larger overriders. Another new feature was modern flashing turn signals, operated by a separate switch on the dash. The twin amber lights positioned above the front bumper helped to distinguish the XK140. The front grille size stayed the same but became a one piece cast unit with fewer, thicker vertical slats. The Jaguar badge was fitted to the grille itself, rather than being mounted between the grille and hood/bonnet as on the XK120. A chrome trim strip also extended back over the bonnet and at the rear continued down the centre of the boot lid, where it contained a red shield with the words 'Winner Le Mans 1951-3' inscribed in gold. 

Repatriated to the UK in late 1980's, this XK140 immediately underwent a full nut and bolt restoration when she was converted to righthand drive. The condition of the car currently can only be described as superb which is an indication as to the quality of the previous restoration work. The current vendor has owned UFF 669 for the last 26 years and has fastidiously maintained her regardless of cost. Even though this Jaguar has only covered some 6,000 miles under his stewardship, he has decided to invest significant sums of money in preparing the car for sale as he wants to ensure any new owner can enjoy this delightful car immediately, this includes having a full re-trim of the interior. Very few upgrades have been carried out on the car as the vendor is of the opinion to keep the car as close as possible to factory specification; however she has been fitted with a Kenlowe cooling fan, electronic ignition and electric choke. Finished in British Racing Green with beige leather interior, this XK140 is equipped with the 3.4 litre engine complete with the original C-type cylinder head and Moss gearbox. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate together with a history folder, this very rare 140 Roadster is one of the finest examples we have seen.
