1957 Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupe

The Amelia Island Auction

3 March 2022, 13:00 EST

Fernandina Beach Golf Club

Lot to be sold without reserve

US$40,000 - US$60,000

Chassis no. S815710BW

Engine no. LA4731-9 (see text)

*Reported to be one of only three left-drive, automatic XK140 FHCs built in 1957

*Upgraded to a torquier 3.8-liter engine

*Delivered new to Harrah's in Reno, Nevada

*A welcome entrant to numerous events and tours

According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certification, this swift coupe rolled off the factory line on June 7, 1956 and was dispatched through Hornburg of Los Angeles, reportedly for Harrah's Reno, Nevada dealership. Originally finished in Carmen Red over Black, it is understood to be one of only three XK140 Fixed Head Coupes that were ordered in both left-hand drive and with the BorgWarner automatic in 1957 making it a very rare car indeed!

The early history of this Coupe is not recorded, but it was clearly recognized as something special early on as it has been enthusiast owned for much of its modern history. A regular entrant at numerous shows throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, it is reported to have been shown at many Jaguar Club of North America Driver class events during that period. Understood to have been restored in 1989, it is said that the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, and rear end were rebuilt. The Jag was repainted and the interior upholstered while the drivetrain was out. It was also during this time that the engine was upgraded to a 3.8-liter block from a MkII with a head fitted with hardened valves and seats. It should be noted that no records of the work completed accompany the car.

Actively driven and used by its prior enthusiast owners, in 2002 the then-owners drove the car from Reno, Nevada to Albuquerque, New Mexico on a Jaguar sanctioned tour that covered some 4,000 miles—all done without any reported incidents. The present owner acquired the car in August of 2007. In the current collection, far less use has been seen by the car with it remaining undriven on static display for most of the past 15 years. As such, mechanical recommissioning will be necessary prior to the next 4,000 miles tour.

1957 Jaguar Fixed Head Coupe (fhc)

Phoenix, Arizona 85022

Seller: Classic Promenade

$89,800

VIN #: S815710BW

Mileage: 88,000

Exterior: Carmen Red

Interior: Gray Leather

This is a beautifully restored 1957 Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupe that has accumulated 88,000 miles from new and is stunning in its Carmen Red livery. This Special Equipment (SE) Coupe is incredibly rare, reported to be one of only three built from new with left-hand drive and a 3-speed Borg Warner automatic transmission. Having lived much of its life in the dry climates of Western US and then benefitting from a complete restoration, this SE Coupe is ready for concours exhibition or touring alike. This XK140SE was completed at the factory on June 7, 1956 and was dispatched through Hornburg of Los Angeles to Harrahs in Reno, Nevada, as confirmed by the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certification. We could easily picture Bill Harrah driving this Jaguar as one of his new daily drivers. The SE or also know as the MC, is the top-of-the-line offering with wire wheels, dual exhaust, fog lamps and a higher performance head from the C-Type. Over the years, this SE Coupe has been a regular entrant at numerous shows throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, just after its restoration in 1989. This Jaguar was repainted and the interior upholstered while the drivetrain was out. It was also during this time that the engine was upgraded to a 3.8-liter block from a MkII with a head fitted with hardened valves and seats. In 2002, the previous enthusiastic owner participated in a Jaguar sanctioned tour covering over 4,000 miles from Reno, Nevada to Albuquerque, New Mexico, all done without any incidents. By 2007, this Jaguar was acquired and became part of a 3,500 car collection, one of the most valuable collections in the world. The livery is sexy and sporty in its rare original Carmen Red that is in overall very nice show quality condition. The paint has excellent shine and luster with only a few very small chips that have been touched up. The chrome overall is in very good to excellent condition. We love the chrome wire wheels offering a perfect contrast to the Carmen Red paint. The correct wide white wall tires are as specified on its build records. The interior is stunning in its gray leather which remains soft and supple today. The gray contrasts well and looks more contemporary today. The gray carpet looks nice but shows some wear and use due to its history of touring. The gorgeous burl walnut dash and trim are luxurious and elegant. The wood was beautifully restored and looks very nice today. This Jaguar has the extended legroom in the cockpit which makes its roomy and comfortable. The space behind the front seats allows for the storage of luggage during longer tours. This SE Coupe has a later model upgraded 3.8 liter DOHC engine with dual SU Carburetors delivering 220 bhp. The three-speed Borg Warner automatic transmission with its upgraded engine makes for ease of driving along with spirited performance. The entire drivetrain was restored and rebuilt, including the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, and rear end. In our recommissioning of the SE Coupe, we went through the brakes, tuned and serviced it, as needed. All of the instruments function well with only a wobble in the speedometer reading. Overall, this Jaguar performs beautifully and is without issues. The Jaguar comes with a file history, Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate and includes a full spare, tools, and jack. We love the stunning color combination and reliable drivetrain. This Coupe would make a terrific classic daily driver or weekend fun car. We have this competitively priced. The Hagerty No. 2 Value is $102,000 and the NADA Retail Value is $106,495.
