1952 Jaguar XK120 SE--Fabulous original car. Books, Tools, Records! for sale
The Jaguar XK120 shook things up in the car world when it came on the scene in 1948. By marrying a ground-breaking silhouette to the 120′s powerful performance engine. Jaguar made this model an instant classic. Famed for its ability to effortlessly reach 120 miles-per-hour. with 0-60 in only 10 seconds. the XK120 moniker makes perfect sense. and in this vehicle. its managed to retain it's heart-pounding performance ability. But of the 120′s. the upgraded SE was la crème de la crème – boasting wire wheels. stiffer suspension. a dual exhaust system. and increased power – rated at 180bhp. as compared with the standard XK120 at 160bhp. These performance upgrades on what was already a groundbreaking performance car in the 1950s make the xk120SE a rare bird. Matching numbers SE's rarely come to market. and are hardly ever as well preserved as the example on offer today.
This example is a low-mileage. rust-free. wire wheeled. matching numbers 1952 Jaguar XK120 SE that is in exceptionally good driving condition and is thoroughly original – right down to the carpets. This car comes with all of the original books and manuals. including: the Operations. Maintenance. and Service Handbook. as well as the Jaguar Guarantee certificate and the Service Vouchers. Also present with the car is the original factory tool roll. pictured below.
When we purchased this car. it was dead-of-winter and the car fired right up. The previous owner was a Jaguar collector who specialized in 120′s and who kept meticulous records of all the work done to the car throughout his ownership. When this car was sold as part of an estate at a public auction in 2002. it had only 55. 20 original miles on it; in the last decade. it's only accumulated 4. 00 miles more.
In terms of originality. the car's body panels have never come off. its engine has never come out. even the original leather grease covers for the rear leaf springs have never been replaced. Only the seats have been re-covered. the door cards replaced. and the car has undergone a single respray. The car is completely rust-free and has no major mechanical or cosmetic wants. Driving this car as it is now is like a time-warp.This car is a survivor – in its life. it has traveled 58. 00 miles and come out almost entirely unscathed – having never suffered a botched restoration. dereliction and negligence. or recklessness. It is truly rare to find such a well-preserved. original. matching numbers. rust-free XK120 SE and they are as coveted now as they were when they came onto the scene 50 years ago. In today's Jaguar market. a documented. matching numbers. original XK120 SE is the holy grail of production Jaguars from the 1950s.
Please see the bottom of this listing for the transcription of the service records we received from the previous owner in addition to photographs of the original factory documentation that came with the car.
