The 1954 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe offered buyers the first true convertible in Jaguar’s XK range. Characterized by its padded, lined canvas top that folded onto the rear deck behind the seats when stowed, the Drophead Coupe gave far more protection from the elements than the lightweight canvas top and detachable side screens of the Roadster model. The Drophead Coupe also offered roll-up windows with opening quarter lights and a flat glass two-piece windscreen that was integrated with the body and painted in the same color. This again was different from the Roadster, which offered a removable windscreen that was said to boost top speed when detached. If you’re the owner of a 1954 XK140 DHC, you also know that the Drophead Coupe, like the Fixed Head Coupe, offered owners a wood-veneered dash and came with optional fender skirts that could cover the rear wheel arches for a further streamlined look. While these features may be commonplace to you, be sure to advertise them when selling your 1954 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe; you want to make your classic stand out from the crowd.


1954 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe Seller’s Guide

The 1954 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe is perhaps one of the most recognizable British luxury sports cars from the 1950’s. Sellers may be surprised, however, that there is a market for these XK140 models no matter what their condition. From the most dilapidated and rusty rolling chassis to the most pristine showroom quality original and everything in between, buyers are looking for XK140’s for a number of reasons. Many want a rolling chassis they can restore from the ground up. These buyers will be looking for a clean body with as little rust as possible. If there’s too much rust, buyers may consider using the model for parts in another restoration. On the other hand, buyers looking for a mint-condition model or one that has already been fully restored may simply want the car for their public or private Jaguar or British sports car collection. No matter what the reason, if you’re looking to discuss Seller’s Tips, the Alex Manos team welcomes you to browse this website and to contact them with any questions you may have.
