From 1948 to 1954, the brilliant XK 120 established Jaguar at the forefront of sports car manufacturers with its elemental yet graceful lines and impressive performance. It was soon clear that its sound original design could easily be improved and updated. As such, the XK 140 arrived in late 1954 with a comprehensive list of improvements designed to overcome the few shortcomings of its predecessor. The XK 140 provided enhanced performance and passenger comfort to maintain Jaguar\'s appeal, particularly in the all-important U.S. market. This original left-hand drive Drophead Coupe was completed on September 10, 1956, destined for Deutschland on the 25th of September through R.M. Overseas in Frankfurt. The car was purchased new by Ivan S. Ponteatine, most likely a U.S. citizen stationed at Schloss-Kaserne in Butzbach, Germany. It is believed the car remained in central Europe for the majority of its life, resurfacing in Switzerland in the early 1990\'s. In years following, the 140 made its way to the U.S. and today displays a beautifully mellowed restoration and makes for an impeccably well driving open sporting Jaguar. The DHC was the most luxurious and expensive XK100 series, available for the first time in 1953. Whereas the roadster was a bare bones open car, the drophead coupe featured exterior door handles, retractable glass windows an insulated boot that can lower within seconds and lavish wood throughout the deluxe interior. Finished in Pacific Blue Paintwork over beautiful corresponding leather upholstery and top, beautiful brightwork throughout, well-paired to bright chrome wire wheels with ear knockoffs and Dunlop bias-plys and rare amber Lucas fog lamps upfront; the unique styling cues of this Jaguar strongly convey the essence of a classic British roadster. Mechanically well sorted thanks to its fresh top-to-bottom 2013 service, including a complete engine-out overhaul including gaskets, hoses, waterpump, cooling system, clutch and assembly, with new filters, fluids, fuel lines, batteries, tie rods, motor mounts, carburetor rebuilds and more, with no expenses spared. Needless to say, this desirable convertible makes an outstanding touring candidate and reliable driver. The Special Equipment Drophead carries a matching Spare Assembly and Owner\'s Manual. As a highly sought after XK140 in Jaguar\'s lineup, this Drophead Coupe will certainly command attention from any astute sports car enthusiast. To find a turn-key 1950\'s open European sports car in today\'s market at this value is a tough feat. Eligible for a wide variety of events throughout the world and just a fine example to collect and use sparingly, we strongly encourage your consideration.
