Ebay item 1/5/19
www.ebay.com/itm/1953-Jaguar-XK-1953-JAGUAR-XK120-ROADSTER/372557869728
Car has a buy it now price of $95,000 for 29 days, seller kurttannermotorcars, 52k miles.

Seller's description:
1953 JAGUAR XK120 ROADSTER. BLACK CAR WITH RED TRIM. DISC WHEELS WITH SPATS. FANTASTIC SPECIFICATION. 4.2 LITER, 5-SPEED, FRONT DISCS, ELECTRIC FAN. BUCKET RACING SEATS, MOTOLITA WHEEL. BELIEVED 52,525 ORIGINAL MILES WITH ONLY 3 OWNERS. INCLUDES ORIGINAL 3.4 LITER DRIVETRAIN.


Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this fantastic black XK120 that was recently purchased from only it's third owner from the East Coast. The car was originally Black with Blue trim. The previous owner purchased this car in the early 1980's with low miles and with a known history from new. It was then carefully and lovingly restored, mechanically and cosmetically in the late 1990's by himself, to it's current specification as you see it today. The only metalwork that was required was simple replacement of the outer rockers.This preserved car has been very well-looked-after since new and only required a straightforward body-on restoration. The car's drivetrain and seating was expertly upgraded to provide a driving experience like no other XK120. The workmanship overall was completed to a very nice standard.
The car received nice body and paintwork as part of it's restoration that is still holding up very well overall. There is no evidence of rust or accident damage anywhere on the car, as the bodyshell is quite superb overall. The car's paint, chrome, and rubber are all very nice and present well with nice closing/fitting/latching body panels on a very honest and straight body.
The car's interior was retrimmed in red leather with wool carpets and presents beautifully overall with little signs of normal use. The car is fitted with seat belts and a slightly smaller, handsome Motolita alloy/wood steering wheel. The racing seats are a huge plus, as anyone knows who has driven a 120. The seating arrangement and position now make it possible for drivers even around 6'2" to navigate the car with ease.
Mechanically, the car includes it's original matching numbers drivetrain. Currently fitted in the car is a very healthy rebuilt 4.2 Liter unit from a mid 60's saloon (engine number 7D56021-8) fitted with twin HD-8 2 inch S.U. carbs, estimated around 220 bhp. It has been fitted custom-fitted to a T-5, 5-speed gearbox that works beautifully in the car. The car also received an XJ-6 style spin-on oil filter, electric cooling fan, rear telescopic shocks, and upgraded front disc brakes from a MK-9 Saloon, and a stainless "straight-through" style exhaust system. The car's engine roars to life and thrusts the car nicely down the road with a superb precise gearbox, good brakes, taught rebuilt suspension. It's an absolute delight to take out for a blast.
The car also includes it's original sidecurtain set (needing restoration), powder coated top frame assembly, original front drum set-up, original seats, engine and transmission, miscellaneous mechanical parts- all reversible items if one chooses to revert the car back to standard. A set of brand new set of 4 Michelin 185x16 Radial tires accompany the sale of the car. The fitted, older Pirelli Cinturatos are ready to be changed out.
Overall, a fantastic looking and driving XK120 in superb colors with desirable disc wheels/spats with only three owners and original low mileage. This very special car presents a unique opportunity to acquire an upgraded, very genuine 50's Jaguar Sports Roadster that can be driven and enjoyed regularly, almost with ease.

Seller's description:

Check out the beautiful body lines on this jet black Jaguar XK120 Roadster with gorgeous red leather interior, rolling on new chrome wire wheels and wide whites, upgraded with great options for the ultimate driving experience and the original parts on the side. This original black roadster is a true work of art on 4 wheels and unlike most XKs this car is a true pleasure to drive. It has a mirror finish paint that is laid over a gorgeous Jaguar body with incredible body lines and lots of newer chrome and stainless to set off this black beauty. Most of the restoration was completed in the late 90s and looks just as good as the day it was done. According to the three previous owners this is a very low mileage, well preserved, 52,600 mile car and this is one of the owners favorite cars in the shop and its will have a few miles before it is sold. This car came from the factory as an extremely rare black and blue car. The entire interior was replaced by lush red interior and is absolutely stunning. The dash cockpit area has very nice crisp gauges. If you have ever driven a XK120 you know that there is limited leg room. This car has been upgraded with very nice Jaguar racing seats or choice of original red leather seats and slightly smaller Jaguar Motolita real wood steering wheel and will drive comfortably with a 6 foot driver. The original seats come with the car. The black top is new and was just refurbished with power coated top assembly, new pads, rubbers and brand new cloth top. Now for the best part. This British roadster sports a healthy higher horsepower 220hp Jaguar 4.2 liter engine topped off with twin HD-8 2 inch SU carbs. The original engine comes on the side. The transmission gearbox is not nearly as whiny, upgraded with a Jaguar T-5 5-speed transmission that shifts beautifully, with the original transmission on the side. The car stops on a dime upgraded with MK9 Jaguar disc brakes with the original drum brakes on the side. The undercarriage is exceptional with great metal structure including frame, inner rocker and clean rebuilt suspension. This Black Jaguar doesn't purr, it roars down the road with new stainless exhaust. Rolling on brand new chrome wire wheels, new wide white tires and major curb appeal.
