A note on Piping/Beading

Jaguar XK140 Drop Head Coupé (DHC) models featured Piping matching the main trim colour. See the above Original Colours chart for more information.

(It should be noted that some records suggest that a few XK140 models appear to left the factory with contrasting piping on the seats, presumably on a one-off “special order” basis).

We can also offer the largest range of non-standard “bespoke” colours schemes for those looking for a more customised finish.
