Serious bidders and serious inquiries ONLY!  This listing could and will end at any time.  
The car is listed For Sale locally and on other sites. As well as word of mouth - through previous contacts.
We HAVE NOT submitted the signed (by my father) title to DMV (so it is still a 2 owner car) You can be the 3rd.
We've determined that it's a numbers matching car - (note* we have not yet been able to put it on a liftto get the engine block number - underneath the carbs. Though there is no reason to think otherwise. the engine number has not been confirmed.
This 52 Jaguar XK120 OTS (Built in August / September of 1951) was left to me by my father over a year and a half ago after he passed away. It was purchased by him in 1967 from the original owner Joe Casser of Casser Tours in N. J.  (who has since passed away in January 2017)  My Grandfather (on my Mothers side) worked as a mechanic for Joe and was the only mechanic to work on the car during the time that Joe owned it. When he was ready to sell it. my grandfather told my Dad about it. and the rest is history. The car was in climate controlled storage for 40 years.
It was my fathers dream to restore this car over the course of his life. Both him and my mother were part of a car club in the New Jersey area in the 60's and early 70's called Scuderia-X. Before it was garaged in the '76 he put around 900 miles on it from what we've been told. A bit of track and A few parades here and there and then it was parked.  Life got in the way.
He tried at some point in the 80's with a local body / paint guy in the New Jersey area to get the ball rolling on the restoration.  and after some time. the car disappeared! When it was recovered some time later. he felt that he couldn't trust anyone with his "baby".  After which. it sat in storage from 1976 in his climate controlled garage till now.  I would like to find this "increasingly rare" vintage classic a new home with someone who shares the passion my father had with this car in his younger days.  I've spoken to several XK enthusiasts over the last few weeks and learned much about the history (as well as track history) and desirability of this sought after vintage Jaguar.  
 I've done some extensive research on it's value.  Most buyers / offers I've fielded. are more interested in how much they can turn a profit for it once restored. I am well aware of the amount of work required to bring this beauty back to life and I'm looking for an enthusiast who wants to restore this Jag to it's former glory.
Please don't waste my time. I am  motivated seller. but I'm not stupid.  It's a shame to see this car sit when I know there's someone out there who will appreciate it as much as my father did.
There are boxes of parts and pieces that I have no idea what they are. But I will give you everything that I have. and my sister and I will tell you all that we know. The car has moved from its New Jersey storage to Upstate N. Y.
 I can be contacted by phone or email (If you're serious. please call)
