Auction description:
The Branson Auction
Lot Number: 571
April 20 & 21, 2018
Branson Convention Center

This XK120 model features the 180 H.P. version of the twin cam six and fitted with Double SU carburetors. All models had removable spats ("fender skirts" in America) covering the rear wheel arches, which enhanced the streamlined look. This car retains those original spats covering solid wheels. On cars fitted with optional center-lock wire wheels (available from 1951), the Spats were omitted as they gave insufficient clearance for the chromed, two-eared knockoff hubs. The roadster's lightweight canvas top and detachable side screens stowed out of sight behind the seats, and its barchetta-style doors had no external handles; instead there was an interior pull-cord which was accessible through a flap in the side screens when the weather equipment was in place.

MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this Bright Red 1953 XK120 Roadster. This example was built on June 11, 1953 at Browns Lane, Coventry, England, and it was shipped on June 24, 1953. This stunning cat was a recipient of a comprehensive nut and bolt restoration, ready to take to a car show or JCNA judging!

Mark Trimble, long-time owner of the Shepherd of the Hills in Branson, Missouri, owned this car for 40 plus years. Trimble had had the car stripped to bare metal and repainted in the St. Louis during his stewardship. He sent Cox to fetch the car when it was ready to come home. Using a half-ton pickup truck and trailer, Cox had the Jag, minus its trim and fittings, placed on the trailer for the ride southwest. Neil Klinefelter completed the car's restoration once it returned to Branson. Mr. Trimble, sold the car in 2014 to an owner in Kansas City, where a local Jaguar specialist shop took over the maintenance duties. It's been well-maintained and is beautifully restored. The Jaguar once again became available due to Mr. Trabon's passing and to settle his estate.

Dressed in Bright Red, which only serves to enhance this open-top coupe's low-slung lines, the car's paint and trim are in overall excellent order, with only minor blemishes visible upon very close inspection. The car's windscreen is clear and intact. Its lights, including the large fog lights perched upon the front bumper are haze-free and intact.

The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the bumpers fit tightly to the body. This Jaguar rolls on wide whitewall four-ply tires, size 6.00-16 at all four corners. Most Jags came with wire wheels and center spinners but without the rear fender skirts or spats as they're called across the pond. This example has solid wheels with the fender skirts, which would not fit over wire wheel centers.

Under the bonnet is the Jaguar's matching number 3.4L twin-cam straight six-cylinder engine. With an alloy cylinder head, hemi-spherical combustion chambers, inclined valves and twin side-draft SU carburetors, the engine was comparatively advanced for a mass-produced unit of its time. This engine is buttoned to a four-speed manual transmission.

Inside, the biscuit leather interior is in borderline excellent shape. The bucket seats, swathed in rich Connolly Leather, are in great shape and the matching Wilton Wool Carpeting is excellent order. The four-spoke steering wheel is in fine condition while the leather-trimmed instrument panel is in excellent order while the inner doors are in very good order. The shift lever echoes the rest of the interior.

The roadster's lightweight canvas top and detachable side screens stowed out of sight behind the seats and its barchetta-style doors had no external handles; instead there was an interior pull-cord which was accessible through a flap in the side screens when the weather equipment was in place. The windscreen could be removed for aeroscreens to be fitted. All models had removable spats ("fender skirts" in America) covering the rear wheel arches, which enhanced the streamlined look.

Documentation includes a Jaguar Heritage Archive Certificate.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 34,491 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title.
