1956 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe

Manufactured between 1954 and 1957, the Jaguar XK140 was the successor to the widely praised XK120 sports car. This second-generation model offered upgrades including more interior space, improved brakes and suspension, telescopic shock absorbers, and perhaps most importantly, rack and pinion steering. This steering greatly enhanced the handling of the XK140 and was a major improvement for the raw sports car. During the 1953 model-year, Jaguar had also introduced a Drophead Coupe to the lineup, which offered a true convertible to buyers whose previous convertible option was the primitive Roadster design. If you’re the owner of a 1956 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe, you certainly have a model that is desirable in the classic car market – no matter what the condition. Buyers today are looking for everything from rolling chassis or partially rusted bodies to use as a parts-donor for their current restoration project to pristine, showroom quality original XK140’s that are worthy of the Concours d’Elegance. No matter what the condition of your model, connect with the Alex Manos team today to learn more about your sales options and to discuss important Seller’s Tips.


1956 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe Seller’s Guide

The 1956 Jaguar XK140 Drophead Coupe is one of those iconic classics that will simply never go out of style. Its iconic curvature has become perhaps one of the most recognizable profiles in British sports car history. One of the first Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team can offer is to try your very best to remove emotion from your decision. Emotion, whether in pricing or the decision to sell, can be a huge obstacle for seeing opportunity that is presented to you. Secondly, it is always best that you do your research when pricing your car. Look for cars that have recently sold and cars that are priced too high and are sitting on the market. Try to find a happy balance and a place where you feel comfortable listing your car. That being said, this can be a difficult step for those who are not actively involved in the classic car market. To learn more about the current status of the market or to discuss detailed pricing options for your 1956 XK140 DHC, connect with the Alex Manos team today. They are standing by to take your call and, should your car fit into their collection, they will be happy to offer you top-dollar for your XK140 DHC, in cash.
