A Genuine Virginia Garage Find

Incredibly solid condition and attractive original colors

We very often receive request for authentic and solid Jaguar XK 120's. 140's. and 150's. There is a trend of forward thinking investors and collectors looking to acquire original unspoiled cars to use as driving long term investments or to perform show quality restorations that can completely transform a motorcar to blue chip quality. Of course there are also those who love the cars just for what they are and can appreciate the patina of a car like this. The XK120 SE Drophead Coupe presented here offers so many options for the next lucky owner.

This original left-hand drive Special Equipment Drophead Coupe was completed on May 8. 1953. and dispatched to the U. S. on May 15. 1953 through Hoffman Motor Car Co. in New York. The DHC was the most luxurious and expensive 120's available for the first time in 1953. Whereas the roadster was a bare bones open car. the drophead coupe featured exterior door handles. retractable glass windows an insulated boot that can lower within seconds and lavish wood throughout the deluxe interior.

To enhance the motoring experience - this particular 120 was fitted with the more powerful Special Equipment package. The SE Model (known as XK120M in the States) gave a power boost to 180bhp using high lift camshafts and carburetors. The 120 also features lightweight aluminum hood. doors. and trunk. Wire wheels and fog lights were fitted as standard. nbsp;as was overdrive. The options and original specifications are verified by the Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate which is included with the sale.

Just discovered residing in a hidden Virginia garage alongside other equally impressive British sports cars. this XK120 DHC benefits from great previous ownership of 25+ years before being parked just over a year ago. It appears to have received a ground-up restoration quite some time ago with strong patina throughout and a beautiful nostalgic appearance in its original factory colors and woodwork.

Acquired recently in non-running condition we have turned the engine over and it attempts to start but additional servicing will be required before driving. A service of the brakes and a thorough check over of the mechanicals will be required before driving. With so many other projects in line we are offering S677155 as-is where-is and hope that the next owner enjoys the process of making her road worthy again. It's a wide open book. we welcome and encourage inspections from any interested parties.

It is important to note that this car is completely solid and with no corrosion issues. All of the numbers match including the engine block. head. transmission and body.

This is an overall fantastic opportunity to acquire a fantastic sport luxury Jaguar XK120 SE Drophead Coupe.
