1957 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe

The last year of the Jaguar XK140 sports car lineup would be 1957 when the XK150, the third and final variation, would be launched. While the XK140 offered full-width bumpers, chrome stripping down the center of the front and rear hoods and increased interior space, the XK150 models that would follow would be radically modernized. Generally speaking, many classic car collectors view the last model of a production year to be the best because it encompasses all the changes that happened throughout that particular model or body style; such is the case with the 1957 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe. While the XK140 Roadster outsold the XK140 Fixed Head Coupe, today many collectors also favor the FHC because of its rarity. Offering a truly fixed roof – not just a Roadster with a hard top – the 1957 XK140 FHC presented owners with a truly four-season driving experience with real protection from the elements. This too is another reason why the XK140 FHC is still desired today. With all these reasons, it is easy to understand why the 1957 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe is a sought-after model in the current classic car market.
