Owning a 1956 Jaguar XK140 Roadster is often achieved after years of dreaming and drooling, so selling a Jaguar XK140 Roadster can often be difficult no matter what your reasoning. No one understands this and the importance classic cars can have to their owners better than the Alex Manos team of classic car specialists. Armed with years of experience, knowledge and resources in the classic car market, they can help you evaluate your classic and find the best home for its new chapter in life. If you’re looking for 1956 Jaguar XK140 Roadster Seller’s Tips, you’ve come to the right place. The second-generation of the illustrious Jaguar XK lineup, the XK140 took everything that was great about the XK120 and then added more. Buyers had requested more legroom, for example, so Jaguar moved the dash, firewall and engine to provide an extra three inches of room in the cabin. Buyers also craved more protection on the road, so larger and more prominent bumpers were added. To update the XK’s look, Jaguar also added a chrome strip down the center of both the hood and the bonnet. These small details, paired with the raw sports car appeal, made the 1956 Jaguar XK140 Roadster a popular model with buyers both then and now.


1956 Jaguar XK140 Roadster Seller’s Guide

When it comes time to sell your XK140 Roadster, there are a few steps you can take prior to the sale that will help you in the long run. First, make the car easily accessible. If you’re selling a car that’s been tucked away in a barn for decades, make sure there is a clear path for buyers to view the car. If your model is roadworthy, have the car professionally cleaned and detailed. Present the car the way you would expect it to be presented if you were the buyer. Secondly, gather all documentation you have on the car including any provenance, maintenance or restoration records, or ownership history. This is not only peace of mind for buyers, but also a value booster, as a well-documented XK140 can go for more than an example with little to no documentation. And, as with all classic cars, buyers will generally want to inspect your cars mechanics, drivability, and overall condition. Always allow serious buyers to have a third-party inspection if they choose. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that the team at Alex Manos has gathered over their years in the industry.
