Selling a 1954 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe
The second generation of Jaguar XK sports cars, squeezed between the first-generation XK120 and the third-generation XK150, was the Jaguar XK140. Manufactured between 1954 and 1957, the XK140 had the same basic architecture as the previous models, but offered a few new features such as rack and pinion steering, full-width bumpers, and increased cabin room that was much appreciated by taller drivers. As before, the Jaguar XK140 would be offered as a Roadster or “Open Two-Seater,” as a Drop Head Coupe and as a Fixed Head Coupe. As their names imply, the Roadster was a true convertible with simply a canvas cover to protect for the occasional rain; the Drop Head Coupe was a Roadster with a convertible soft top; and the Fixed Head Coupe was a true enclosed Coupe. Externally, the new XK140 models featured a grille with fewer slats and an integrated Jaguar badge. Turn signals now appeared on the front of the car above the fenders and amber driving lights would be positioned above the bumpers. These are just a few of the changes that buyers will be looking for to ensure they are indeed looking at a 1954 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe and not another model-year.
