Ulverston: 1955 Jaguar XK140 Fixed Head Coupe

1955XK140-1

The above Jaguar is part of the collection at Lakeland Motor Museum. There were three body styles in the XK120/140/150 range – the fixed head coupe (as above), the drop head coupe and the super sports – often called the roadster which featured a simpler hood, side screens rather than wind up windows and a more water resistant dashboard covering. Similar to the Jaguar XK120, wire wheels or wire-spoke wheels were an optional extra whereas cars with the standard disc wheels had spats (fender skirts) over the rear wheel opening. This stunning Jaguar also features a heavier full width bumper rather than the two lightweight thin bumpers found on the XK120.
