I am pleased to offer a wonderful and unique opportunity to own a rare and exceptional Jaguar XK120 OTS roadster. In mint and spectacular condition with numerous engine and performance mods making it by far one of the finest running and driving 120s available. The car was sold new in September 1953 by Charles Hornburg of Beverly Hills California to Mr. Karl Steil of Los Angeles where it has been almost it's entire life. The most recent owner was celebrity actor/ professional race driver and Star of ER television show. During his ownership the car was simpathetically restored with complete mechanical rebuild and new PPG paint over the original stripped down in the original color Battleship Grey. The red and creme Connolly Leather remains in excellent condition. The engine and mechanical upgrades where completed by Winning Makes in Santa Barbara Cailfornia. The engine which is the original and has received a complete overhaul to high performance specs with improved and uprated crankshaft. special cam shafts. pistons. rods etc. The carbs where also upgraded to the larger 2 inch SUs. Aluminum radiatior and Spal electric fan maintain the running temp. The car is smooth. fast. and reliable. Truly a joy to drive. It retains the original Moss gearbox and it works well and adds the whine typical of these 4 speed gearboxes. Jaguar front disc brakes from a MK 10 increase the stopping ability over the original drums . Suspension and all mechanical components have beed redone to very high standards. The car is perfect for a fast vintage rally as this Jaguar will hang with the best and it drives and handles superbly. Recent expenditures of over $120. 00 ( have receipts) were spent to assure this quality and drivability. All Numbers Match and the History can't get better. Jaguar Heritage Document. All tools and equipt. such and tire pump grease gun jack etc. Original 16 Dunlop wires are show condition as are the newer Verdenstein tires. Period correct leather hood strap . Motolita 4 spoke steering wheel and front badge bar are examples of some of the wonderful details. A new stainless exhaust system sounds better than it looks along with Big Bore stainless steel headers. Original Owners manual and booklets from the originating dealer. I can be reached for serious questions at 805. 895. 1226 Martin. Jaguar purists please refrain from commenting on correctness of the car as we are aware of the changes made. This is not a restored car but a pristine immaculately maintained original.
