The 1957 model-year would offer the last of the Jaguar XK140 models prior to the release of the XK150, the third generation of the iconic XK lineup. First launched in 1954 as the successor to the XK120, the Jaguar XK140 looked very similar to the XK120, yet offered a few very significant changes including larger bumpers, more interior cabin room, rack and pinion steering, and new telescopic dampers. Like many classics that are manufactured at the end of a production run, the 1957 Jaguar XK140 Roadster would turn out to be popular with collectors because it featured all the advancements that came down the line throughout production. In essence it is the best XK140 you can purchase. If you’re looking to sell your 1957 Jaguar XK140 Roadster, Fixed Head Coupe or Drop Head Coupe, the Alex Manos team is happy to provide you with the following Seller’s Tips.
