Seller's description:

VIN #: 679410

Transmission: Manual

Condition: Excellent

Exterior: Indigo Blue

Interior: Biscuit

1952 Jaguar XK-120, This car was originally imported through Max Hoffman in New York City in 1952, Hoffman was responsible for bringing many great European cars to America. It spent much of its early life in the New York area with later life spent in Florida. This is the 410th Fixed Head Coupe built.

This car was purchased in 2006 as an uncompleted restoration work in progress – still with Florida plates. The restorer had passed away mid-project and the car sat partially finished for 20 years until the former owner got ill and sold the car. Restoration work that had been done at that time was not up to par – the car was then fully gutted and a 7-year Professional nut & bolt Concours level cost-no-object restoration ensued. OEM parts were sourced around the globe. The engine was completely rebuilt. All wiring was replaced with correct cotton loom. New woodwork was made in England by a former Rolls Royce employee. A proper and correct Connolly leather and Wilton wool carpeted interior was installed. Chrome, lights, instruments were all done.

The front brakes have been replaced with discs to make the car more driveable. Other upgrades to make it more user friendly to drive – 5 speed Getrag transmission, front disk brakes, aluminum rad. The original matching numbers Moss transmission is available.

The car is painted Indigo Blue, a correct Jaguar factory color for 1956 but not 1952. This is the same color as the Ecurie Ecosse cars from the Scottish Racing Team of the same period. The interior color is biscuit.

The vehicle was powered by a matching numbers 160 horsepower, 3.4 liter, inline-six cylinder engine with twin SU carburetors. 120-mph was the promised speed from the factory, the top speed of the vehicle was around 126-132 mph depending on the trim of the vehicle – it was the fastest production car available at that time.

The car has been shown at the Amelia Island Concours in 2019, the Concours d'Elegance of America at St Johns in 2013, the Inaugural Cobble Beach Concours in 2013, has won numerous JCNA awards and was part of the Art & the Automobile display at the Toronto International Auto Show.

The XK120 Coupe is one of the most beautiful sports cars produced of all time - sensuous lines with robust performance.

Price: $160,000 obo
