Here we have offered a beautiful 1954 Jaguar XK 120 SE ready for show or just to drive.  It has been in our collection for the past 20 years and has been restored for the past 12 years.  The car still shows as nice as the day it rolled out of our shop.  The car is a very classy driver and will turn heads at every show you go to.  It recently did an add in two magazines which you can see in the pictures section.   It is a very rare Southern California car ready for a new home.  I will break the car down to its parts to make it easier and to show all the work that has been done to this stunning Jaguar.
Paint and Body:  When we started to restore this car it came to use from dry storage out of Palmdale. CA.  It was complete but needed alot of attention.  We have a picture book of when it arrived all the way through paint to show the metal work and paint process we went through.  The book will be included with the sale.  The car was completely striped down the bare metal.  The only damage that needed repair was the drivers side front fender which was pounded out and metal finished before primer was applied.  The whole car was sprayed a gloss coat of black and block sanded down to make sure it was smooth as silk.  The two stage Urethane red metallic was then applied and cut and buffed to a glossy shine.  Over the years it was gotten a few bumps and nicks on edges but nothing even minor or that hasnt been brush touched.  At the time of restoration all the chrome was replated.  and original hardware was restored and replaced.  
Interior:  The interior in this car is a thing of beauty! It received a full english tan leather interior that one concours judge quoted as just flawless.  The bently wool carpet to match was run over the floor and continues into the trunk area.  The dash was wrapped in the same leather with all the gauges being restored and fully functional.  The car also had a complete new wiring harness installed along with new cables as well.  The steering wheel was repainted a gloss black and new turn signal assembly.  There is a fully restored top that does come with the car but we have never had it installed.  It was fitted and trimmed before the car was painted.  I do not have the side curtins but they are  available from Jag parts people.  The lights all Work as do the turn signals.  The horn does not work but everything is there and the same goes for the windshield wipers.
Engine and drivetrain:  The Engine is a later XKE 3. 8 Litter inline 6 engine that was completely rebuilt and installed with the 3. 4 correct intake. carbs and exhaust manifold.  It is better motor for the car but is it not correct.  We do have the numbers matching motor but it would need a full overhaul and that is something I can work out with the new owner.  The motor runs perfectly and idles like a dream.  It curently has 86 miles on it since being restored .  The car does have Stainless dual exhaust that sings down the road.  The Original numbers matching Moss 4 speed transmission and rear end were both left in the car and had their fluids changed.   
Wheels and Tires:Being a SE (special edition) car it was a factory item to have wire wheels.  We opted to have the chrome wire wheels with chrome knock offs to set this car apart.  They are wrapped up in new Bias ply tires that actually hold this car to the road very well.  The brakes were also completely gone through and because of that it now stops on a dime!  
Any extras:  The car does have some small flaws but in no way detracts from the over all beauty of it.  When your behind the wheel of this Jaguar all your problems will disappear and you will have a huge smile on your face.  I always tell people when you are on the freeway and hit 4th gear and hear the note of the exhaust and the wind blowing over the wind screen. it takes you to another place.
Im very impressed with this car.  It shows well.  It drives even better.  I truely hate to part with it but the time has come where you have to let a new owner enjoy it as much as you have.  If you have any questions feel free to email me.  I can also send you my contact number.  I welcome anyone to come inspect the car also before auctions end.  I do have it listed locally so the auction could come to an end before.
