Jaguar? But it looks more Mediterranean, both inside and out. Like maybe a Maserati or a Pegaso. There’s even a hint of Ferrari in those fenders. But indeed, this 1955 Jaguar XK140MC wears a body designed and built by Ghia. As if that weren’t enough, the MC suffix means that its dual overhead-camshaft engine runs a C-Type head, boosting its output by 20 horsepower to 210 total. From the seller’s description:
Winner of numerous awards. Chassis number S815404 is a custom-bodied Jaguar XK140 MC with all-aluminum fastback coachwork by Ghia of Italy. Originally owned, we understand, by leading Mexican actor Ricardo Montalban. The two-door fastback is in very sound order and has been restored within the last several years. The rear shelf is hinged for storage, and the car is also fitted with 16″ polished wire wheels, Jaguar spinners and Firestone tires. The Jaguar trusted six-cylinder engine with twin Solex carburetors has matching #s head/block and the front headlamps are Marchal with the Yellow Continental Touring bulbs. Unbelievable two-door coupe and very, very rare with the Jaguar MC engine.
