Auction description:
Auction Date: 22 October 2011
Lot 352 - 1953 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupé
Registration: MWY318
Chassis Number: 667149
Engine Number: F1074/8
Odometer reading: TBC
Estimate: £15,000-£20,000
Hammer: Sold
Plus Commission: £28,000

This original righthand drive Jaguar XK120 drophead coupé was purchased by the vendor as an very day motor car in 1967 and was used regularly for two years. In 1969 the car broke a tooth on the starter ring gear which meant that sometimes it was difficult to start unless the car was pushed forward in gear to be able to engage the starter on a different part of the ring gear. At the end of 1969, the XK120 was park in the garage with the intension of replacing the faulty part and this is where the car has been since with the exception that in around 1980 the car was started, driven and put into a different garage on the estate. The car appears sound with only surface rust visible on the bodywork and chrome. The passenger door hinges require replacing and new hinges are supplied with the car. The engine has not been run for thirty years but the car has been stored in a dry garage and the only fault with the car when it went into the garage was the starter ring gear. The XK120 is finished in the original dark green paint with the original vinyl roof and original red leather seats. The car is fitted with the Coombs type rear wheel spats and aluminium bonnet and boot lid. Supplied with the car are a number of spare parts, an original log book, the old style V5 registration document, MoT test certificates 1967 to 1969 and a number of bills from the same period. A very rare opportunity to acquire highly original and unmolested rareright hand drive XK120 restoration project. With originality being so important in today's marketplace, this car represents an ideal investment opportunity for the prudent collector.

The XK120 we have for sale here is a desirable right hand drive drophead coupe. The car has had only three owners since it left the factory on 5th December 1953 and was delivered to Mr James Wood in Worthing Sussex. It comes complete with full ownership and some service history spanning 60 years. This matching numbers car comes with a Jaguar heritage certificate. A thorough restoration lasting 4 years has recently been completed including a full engine rebuild and a photographic record of the restoration process is available to the new owner. It is therefore no surprise that the vendor describes the general condition of the car to be excellent.

The car is presented in the stunning combination of grey with contrasting red hide interior. One of the finest examples of this legendary Jaguar that can be found on the market today and surely an opportunity not to be missed.
