1954 Jaguar XK140

The 1954 Jaguar XK140 was the next in line after the widely popular and highly collectible Jaguar XK120 series. First presented at the 1954 motor show, the Jaguar XK 140 solved some of the less practical ideas that were launched on the XK120. Included in these was the rack and pinion steering, which replaced the re-circulating ball system found in the XK120 models, as well as telescoping dampers that replaced the previously used lever arm dampers. Lastly, some of the options that were available on the Jaguar XK120SE model – such as the more powerful engine and thicker torsion bars – were now made standard. Visually, very little changed from the XK120, however the addition of more chrome and badges, including chrome strips along the middle of the hood and trunk, made it easy for buyers to distinguish between the two models.
