When the Jaguar XK140 was released in 1954, it would be quite the challenge to follow in the tracks of the widely loved XK120. While it looked nearly identical to its predecessor, the XK140 also offered new, larger bumpers and a heavier cast grille. At the time, buyers were undecided as to whether these new features added to the styling of the car or detracted from the car’s inherent grace. Regardless, this new trim provided much better protection from the larger American cars on the road at the time – and the aggressive driving record of American drivers. Also introduced was the 1955 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe to run alongside the Roadster and Fixed Head Coupe. This would be the Jaguar XK’s first true convertible offering a padded and lined canvas top, which folded onto the rear deck behind the seats when retracted. If you’re the owner of a 1955 XK140 DHC, the Alex Manos team would be delighted to learn more about your model and the reason for your sale.
