All fans of classic cars like patina: if it develops on a black surface, it is even more fascinating.
The surface we are talking about belongs to a Jaguar XK 140 model DHC: it is the more “civilized” spider version, less extreme than the OTS (the one with “low” doors, so to speak) but always an icon of vintage cars . The example you see in the photo has belonged to the same owner for the last 55 years, and we must admit that it has been very well maintained.
Obviously the particularity of the car lies in its completely original exterior: both the paint and the rims appear to be the same as when it came new from the factory; the interiors – at least the seats and door panels – seem instead redone while the engine has a “C” (or red, in jargon) head. On top of that, the car still has the original black California license plate, which is just perfect on this car. Find it for sale at $83,500 here in Astoria, NY.
