For twenty years this automobile has taken me to interesting events. introduced me to wonderful people. and has been a pleasure to own. But it's time for someone else to have as much fun. This low milage. matching numbers automobile with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. is both a show winner and a superb driver. As past president of the South Florida Jaguar Club. a JCNA judge. and an ex vintage car racer I understand how this car should perform. This car is ready to show and drive and is currently located in Los Angeles. This XK120 is an original left-hand drive model that was built in July. 1952 and dispached to the USA on August 12. 1952 to Jaguar distributor Max Hoffman in New York and sold to the Lampson family in South Hampton. NY. They passed it to Bob Grossman who sold it to the current owner in 1993. Aficionados of sports car racing will recognize Bob Grossman as a veteran race car driver. member of the Briggs Cunningham racing team. six time veteran of Le Mans. and three times US Racing Champion. In 1960 he and John Fitch co-drove a Corvette at Le Mans to give Corvette its first significant international victory. Vistors to Lime Rock vintage events. as well as automobile shows in the Northeast. are familiar with Bob as an artist specializing in watercolor paintings of vintage race events. Included with the sale of this auto is an original art work of this car by Bob that was given to the owner as a gift. The engine is original with the exception of replacing the points with an electronic unit that fits within the original distributor preserving the proper look. Everything relating to braking has been replaced or rebuilt including stainless steel brake lines. Exhaust is also stainless steel with an incredible sound. The suspension system was completely rebuilt using poly bushings for a more direct feel. The wheels were sent to Dayton for a complete rebuild and fitted with 6 inch rims so modern radial tires could be used. Unlike many examples that have been restored this car has also been properly set up for driving. It goes down the road extremely well. tracking straight and braking true. with responsive steering and a well tuned motor. In preparation for this sale the seats have been redone in the proper leather. a high torque starter was installed. and a new set of radial tires mounted. This car represents a unique opportunity to acquire a fully sorted. low mileage example of the Jaguar XK120. See the 2009 September-October issue of the "Jaguar Journal" magazine for a story about the car. Asking $89. 00 Contact Robert Scibelli for additional information. 561-350-9281 rscibelli@gmail. com
