Private Party Or Dealer: Private Party

This 1952 Jaguar XK120 roadster is a running and driving project car that is said to have been acquired as a project in 1975 by the seller’s late father, who began refurbishing it in 2010. Powered by a 3.4-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission, the car is finished in silver and the red interior currently is not installed. This XK120 OTS project requires further work to be roadworthy and is now offered by the seller on behalf of his mother with a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, removed and spare parts, a roof frame, side curtains, and a clean Pennsylvania title in the seller’s mother’s name.

The car is said to have been damaged on the left front fender and partially repaired in the late 1960s by the previous owner. Within the past dozen years, the seller’s father had the vehicle media-blasted and further repaired with some lead filler before the body was refinished in silver and replacement rubber was used for reassembly. Features include a waterfall grille, fender-mounted turn signals, vent doors in each fender, and rear-wheel spats. The windshield posts and glass are present, but one side is broken. The roof frame and side curtains are in poor condition, according to the seller.

Steel 16″ wheels with red hubcaps are mounted with Mobil Cushion tires. Braking is handled by four-wheel drums.

The left-hand-drive cabin has been stripped of its red leather seats and other components. A battery is located on the floor on the passenger side.

The seats and other interior parts have been removed from the car.

A 16″ four-spoke steering wheel sits to the left of Smiths instrumentation that consists of a 140-mph speedometer, a reverse-sweep tachometer with a 5,250-rpm redline plus a clock in the lower part of its dial, two combination gauges, and an ammeter. The five-digit odometer shows 81k miles, and true mileage is unknown.

The 3.4-liter inline-six is equipped with dual SU carburetors and was rated to produce 160 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque when new.

The stamping on the engine block (W5755-8) matches the serial number indicated on the car’s data plate as well as on the JDHT certificate, and the same sequence is stamped into the cylinder head. Gearbox stamping JL12348 is depicted in the gallery and also matches the aforementioned plate and certificate.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Additional photos showing the suspension, the chassis, and corrosion on some underbody components are visible.

The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate indicates that the car left the factory in August 1952 painted Gunmetal Grey with a matching top over a red interior, and it was subsequently imported to New York by Max Hoffman. Serial numbers matching the car’s identification plate also are detailed on the document.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
