Car to be at auction 7/22

www.artcurial.com/en/lot-1954-jaguar-xk-120-dhc-4224-208

Auction description:

Sale Le Mans Classic 2022 - 02 july 2022 /Lot 208 1954 Jaguar XK 120 DHC

French title

Chassis no. 678305

Engine no. F2304-8

- Sold new in France

- Extensive restoration file

- Matching numbers

This elegant XK 120 drophead coupé was sold new by the French Parisian agent Delecroix on April 30, 1954. The body was then finished in cream, with a fawn-coloured hood and pale blue upholstery; it is easy to imagine how striking the car looked on the French roads in the mid-1950s! The current owner's father, a Jaguar connoisseur, bought the car in Gironde in 1987, then sent it to the renowned Beauzon et Cie workshop in 1989 for the original engine to be completely rebuilt. At this time, the original cylinder head was replaced (the matching numbers part will be supplied with the car). The same year, the body was completely stripped bare before being sent to a bodyshop to be restored and painted white. The work was completed in July 1990 and the electrical system was rebuilt as new. The leather upholstery was also restored, as was the fully lined black hood. The running gear was given the same treatment and four new wire wheels were fitted. A safety inspection from 1987 notes a mileage of 42,594km, and the odometer is currently showing 45,605km. In 2019, nearly 10,000€ were spent on a full overhaul of the car by Sampaio Automobiles, including the replacement of all four tyres and the fuel tank. On test, the engine proved very well set up, starting immediately and with no untoward noises. In the interests of safety, front disc brakes have been fitted. The overall condition of this XK today shows the care taken over its restoration more than 30 years ago, and it asks only to be taken for a drive.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
