For Sale / 1957 XK 140 Jaguar for Sale / Fixed Head Coupe / Light Crème color and wire spoke wheels/ The body is in very nice condition and retains all the chrome except for the trim around the windscreen and rear windows. There are no dents orvscratches and from what I know it has never been in an accident, and I have owned the vehicle for 35 years. Short of a rebuild , it could possibly be brought back to running condition. Vin #A815551BW. It has a Chevy V-8 engine, complete with automatic engine. The obvious plan would be to replace it with a G series, Jaguar XK engine and gearbox. It was working when parked, and the plates have been shelved since 1995 with a clear title. Parked inside enclosed garage. Behind the front bumper there appears to be an oil cooler with the appropriate hoses to the engine. There is no radio or drawer in the dashboard space. All instrumentation is installed in the original walnut dash, and was "working when parked". The dash is in still very nice condition with no cracks or delamination issues. The headliner, interior panels, seats and floor carpets are in need of cleaning, but still look to be in very serviceable condition. The upholstered seats do not match the original XK stitching pattern, but are comfortable and in good condition as well. Also, easily seen in the pictures, the shift lever area of the tunnel has been slightly altered to accept the non-original gearbox and shift lever. The car is fitted with period correct, wide white wall tires, and spoke rims. The tires hold air, and are acceptable for shipping, but they should be replaced before operating at speed. The chrome spokes still have some chrome, but also show evidence of pitting and some rust. Painting or a new set of stainless spokes would be a good move. Replacing of the drum brakes are disc brakes on all four wheels. Both front and rear bumpers are in very nice condition. A good washing and some chrome polish would bring them back to nearly new. The sunroof is a rare dealer option and remains in very good condition. The headliner and exterior fabric of the sunroof is clean, undamaged, and the slides operate smoothly. I have tried to unsuccessfully to get the chassis number from both locations, buy they are hi0dden by the V-8 Installation. The trunk (boot) release button is stuck in the down position and will not open. A bias ply spare tire is shown through the inside access to the rear boot area. The fold down door is missing and has been replaced by a piece of carpet. The condition of the boot and spare tire compartment is unknown. It is also unknown whether the jack or tool kit is present. It is difficult to get more pictures because of where the car is stored. The driveway immediately outside the garage is very steep and prevents moving it outside at the present time. Feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to find out the answers.
