Car Fest 2017 - Nick Cooper

A 1954 XK120 that I restored a few years ago. It is now 3.8 producing 235 BHP and 265 Lbft torque and dare I admit it; fuel injected! So its pretty quick and very drivable. Its been all over the UK, Donnington, and all over northern France – I love it. It was featured in Car Fest a couple of times and this was at the Bolesworth Castle event a couple of years ago. If you look closely on the door you can see I was doing rides around the track for the sporting bears.

Alan Winer, Florida USA - 27th September 2020

 

After searching for many years, I finally purchased this 1957 XK 140 OTS last September. This matching numbers car was dispatched to Jaguar Cars, New York in January 1957 and it appears to have spent it’s years in this area until my purchase brought it to Florida with only 43,000 original miles.  Shortly afterwards I requested and received a Heritage Certificate which listed: Exterior Paint-Pacific Blue, Interior Trim-Grey and Hood-Black. Upon reading “Appendix 4: Color Schemes” in Jaguar XK140/150 In Detail (Anders Ditlev Clausager, 2017), I was amazed it listed that only one XK140 OTS was produced with this paint, interior trim and hood combination.

What an additional surprise in finding this great car!
