The Jaguar XK140: How a £5 Debt Led to a Classic Car| Down at the barns #jaguarxk

From Down at the barns.

The Jaguar XK 140 was an incredible sports car of the 1950’s, in fact the XK Jaguars were the first sports cars since 1939. The Jaguar XK140 followed on from the XK120 model and was introduced in 1954 ready for the 1955 market. The Jaguar XK140 we are looking at today is the early 1955 model and it’s owner Ron picked it up in 1967 but didn’t quite have enough money so had to owe £5 to the seller.
