Auction description;

Lot 65

1953 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster

$90,000-$110,000

Bids Close: Wednesday 3 June 8.03pm AEST*

Location: Sydney

Fabulous XK120 Special Equipment Roadster

Restored to a high standard

Offered by long-term owner

Acquired by the current QLD owners at a Shannons auction in Melbourne back in 2010, this fabulous XK120 was previously restored in the UK and still presents in wonderful condition today. Commissioned by a Melbourne-based enthusiast back in 1989, the concours quality restoration was carried out by Country Classic Cars Ltd of Southam, Warwickshire at great expense, incorporating a number of upgrades including a C-type cylinder head, special camshafts with 3/8” lift, a lightened flywheel and 2” SU carburettors. The suspension was rebuilt with stiffer torsion bars and rear springs and a dual exhaust fitted. Cosmetic improvements included Lucas fog lamps and 54-spoke chrome wire wheels with knock-on hub caps. Finished in British Racing Green with contrasting tan leather upholstery, the car was duly registered in Victoria using the numbers on the reproduction ID plate mounted on the scuttle and enjoyed by the original customer for a decade before joining the current QLD owner’s small collection of British sports cars in 2010. Used sparingly for local car club events, the XK120 was the owner’s personal favourite and it’s easy to understand why – the sensational looks are backed by a fabulous sound from the upgraded exhaust, the motor pulls cleanly and the car drives superbly. In the process of cataloguing the car, Shannons staff uncovered the XK120’s true identity – a left-hand drive Special Equipment car with chassis number S674227 that, according to the Heritage Trust Certificate, left Brown’s Lane on August 26, 1953 bound for North American dealer Charles Hornburg. Although partially erased on the chassis frame, the number can be corroborated against the original body number (F6335) tag still present on the scuttle. Respected Jaguar XK historian and author John Elmgreen has inspected the car and his findings are available to prospective buyers. Currently sold unregistered, the Jaguar comes with side curtains, hood and tonneau cover plus some tools and a copy of the XK120 workshop manual.

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?
