1954 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster - From a Noted Collection, Incredible Example for sale
Offered for sale is an exceptionally clean. well sorted and beautiful 1954 Jaguar XK120 SE Open Two Seater (OTS). finished in timeless and wonderfully era-specific Old English White over Green leather with a matching green canvas soft top. Just out of the William Young collection in Seattle following more than 30 years of ownership. the car has been fully gone through mechanically and is ready to enjoy. whether as a fabulous weekend driver or as a Jaguar Club of North America (JCNA) event participant.
William Young has been a significant collector for the last 40 years and while his collection has included cars as notable as the ex-Constance Bennett 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Special Town Car by Brewster (now valued at $3M+). Jaguars were always his true passion and we were fortunate enough to have acquired three of his XK120 Roadsters and his Mark V Drophead Coupe. A JCNA regional president for many years. Mr. Young always bought only the most honest examples and kept them exceptionally well maintained. as evidenced by this car's fantastic condition.
The recipient of a high quality older restoration. the car presents nearly as well as it did following its completion. at which point it was high scoring in JCNA shows. The factory correct Old English White paint is not without its blemishes. but as the pictures exhibit. they are few. far between and completely insignificant in terms of taking away from the car's overall appeal. which is substantial. The body is entirely straight. without any evidence of bondo or accident repair and the panel fit is consistent with even gaps all around. The brightwork is in excellent shape. as are both the rubber and glass. and the painted knock-off wire wheels are wrapped in wide white wall tires with plenty of remaining tread.
The green leather interior is in equally as clean condition. appearing virtually untouched. The seats show only the most negligible amount of wear and the same is true of the carpets and interior panels. The canvas soft top is as new and the car has never been subjected to the elements. evidenced by the untainted. rust-free undercarriage. This is an entirely pure. correct and honest car. one that needs only a new owner's garage and the same doting care that its received for the last 30+ years.
Mechanically the car is fantastic. its 3. 4L engine firing up effortlessly. idling consistently and pulling strongly and smoothly through each of the original Moss gearbox's gears. A factory Special Equipment model. the dual exhaust has been updated with an exceptional stainless system that emits a note that this nothing if not grin-inducing. Performance accompanies with excellent. even compression and fantastic ride quality. The car brakes straight and true. the suspension is sound and the car is a joy on the road. whether tooling through town. roaring through the canyons or bombing down the highway.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an appreciating XK120 SE OTS that has all the right things going for it: a timeless and appealing color combination. excellent provenance. strong mechanicals and in beautiful cosmetic condition. We've considered consigning the entire collection to the Gooding and Co. auction at Amelia Island. FL this spring. but are willing to sell the cars (or the entire collection) privately at what would be a significant discount compared to what examples routinely bring when crossing the auction block. Please bid accordingly.
We want this car to go to great home and would be happy to further discuss it and answer any questions. so please feel free to email us or call us at 805-202-4557. You can also visit us online at GoodmanReed.

We've always had an appreciation for classic European cars and over the years have created an eclectic personal collection. We only buy cars that we'd personally be interested in owning and generally only sell them to make room for other acquisitions. That time has come for this Jaguar (if the price is right. of course – this isn't a fire sale). We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we're selling. but we're enthusiasts. not experts. and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding. as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.
For U. S. buyers a 10% non-refundable deposit is required within 3 days of the auction's end. the balance to be paid within 7 days of the auction's end. Foreign buyers must pay in full within 7 business days of the auction's end. Buyer is responsible for shipping. however we'd be more that happy to help with recommendations and arrangements. The car is listed locally and we reserve the right to end the auction at any time should it sell prior to auction's end. Thanks for your interest.On Jan-06-14 at 16:04:33 PST. seller added the following information:
PLEASE NOTE: The car also comes with its original. rare and desirable complete tool roll. lubrication tools. wheel changing tools. as well as the car's correct side curtains in flawless. virtually unused condition.
