1954 Jaguar XK 120 Drop Head Coupe. Built in July of 1953 and originally sold through Max Hoffman's in New York.
This beautiful car has been in the same family for over 25 years.
She has been thoroughly enjoyed in those years and in 2006-2007 underwent a complete nut and bolt restoration by Donovan Motorcars in MA.
Since the restoration, this car has won numerous Best in Class and Best in Show concours throughout New England, including the Lime Rock Park, Sunday in the Park Concours and the Berkshires/Tanglewood British Motorcar Festival.
The car runs and drives beautifully, sitting on the correct Avon tires and being propelled by the numbers matching dual overhead cam 3.4L 6 cyl. engine and trans, which was pumped up just a little by Brian Donovan when the motor was rebuilt as part of the restoration. To keep the motor running cool a 4 core aluminum radiator was installed, however, the original rad comes with the car. The car is a fully numbers matching car.
The Jaguar Heritage Certificate shows the car came originally in Pastel Green with a Suede Green interior. She now sits in British Racing Green over a Fawn interior and Fawn Hood. The dash board has been completed in English Burlwood and the odometer shows just 16,000 miles since the restoration.
There a couple of very minor points of wear that show the car has been driven those 16K miles.
The car is being sold as the owner has several other cars and this one and one other from his collection simply aren't getting used enough and he feels its time for them to be moved on to new conservators.
The car is registered in CT and in CT, they do not offer titles on cars of 20 years of age or older, so a Bill of Sale, official CT State Q1 form, the CT registration and a letter from the State showing the statute that exempts automobiles of 20+ years from a title, will go with the car when sold so the new owner can register this beauty easily in their own state or country.
The level of quality on this car puts her near the top of the heap and as such the asking price is $135,000. That price is negotiable.
Transport can be arranged, at buyers expense.
