Sellers description:
gorgeous 1954 Jaguar XK-120M drop head coupe. This restored, and rare classic Jag might be in a rapidly appreciating market, but even after thousands of dollars were spent in restoring it within the last year, you can drive this XK home right now for far less than you could pick it up at any auction.

Every bit of brightwork re-chromed as part of a restoration that had taken place over the last year. This includes delicate two-piece front and rear bumpers, which were exclusive to the XK-120. The restoration paid special attention to bringing back the old-world atmosphere of real wood and leather. It starts with the $4K invested in replacing the burled walnut dash, and full trim. The leather on the bucket seats doesn't show a single crease because they've been recently recovered in the correct pattern. When you slip into the driver's seat, you're instantly reminded that the XK-120 had the attractive three-spoke wood wheel that didn't make it onto successors. The full set of Smiths gauges are a nice reminder of this car's speed record pedigree. But the roll up windows, and full convertible top of the drop head coupe (DHC) body add everyday civility to your speed. New Dayton chrome wire wheels.

The XK-120's motor is what made it a legend. The 3.5-liter inline six cylinder looks perfect in the slim engine bay, and this is the original drivetrain as certified with the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate. It was rebuilt less than 4,000 miles ago with the addition of an electric fan for added reliability. Some of you may already know the significance of the "M" model. This is also known as the Special Equipment (SE) designation, which raised the output from 160 hp, to 180 hp. This rare special edition actually gave this 1954 XK-120M similar performance to the heavier XK-140 that would debut the next year.

The DHC was a two-year only style for the XK-120, and the SE package makes this one exceptionally rare only about 706 were built in left-hand drive. This example comes with a 40-year maintenance history, owner's manual, and a full restoration receipt book so large that we can't possibly list it all here.

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?
