This 1952 Jaguar XK120 is a Fixed Head Coupe that was reportedly purchased from its original owner in 1968 and was driven regularly until 1994, when the current owner commissioned a refurbishment of the paintwork, interior, suspension, brakes, and drivetrain. The car is finished in black over a red leather interior, and power comes from a 3.4-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Work was completed in 1996, and the car was then reportedly driven less than 50 miles before being stored for 23 years. Service in August 2019 included flushing the fuel and braking systems as well as replacing the battery, brake components, and oil. This XK120 is now offered in New Orleans by the seller on behalf of the current owner with photos of the 1990s refurbishment, factory literature, service records, and a clean Tennessee title.
The exterior was stripped and refinished in black during the mid-1990s refurbishment. Detailed photos in the gallery below show the paintwork and trim, and imperfections noted by the seller include cracks in the paint on the front fenders and roof. The seller also reports that the position of the windshield wipers is not in sync with the motor and that the wipers will need to be reinstalled.
Steel wheels wear chrome Jaguar covers, trim rings, and whitewall tires. In August 2019, the brake fluid was flushed, and the brake master and slave cylinders were replaced. The suspension and drum brakes are said to have been replaced in the mid-1990s.
The interior was also refreshed during the refurbishment and features individual seats upholstered in red leather. Matching carpeting and red door panels with wood trim are also fitted.
A four-spoke steering wheel fronts a wood dashboard with factory Smiths instrumentation including a 140-mph speedometer, a counter-clockwise 6k-rpm tachometer, auxiliary gauges, and a five-digit odometer that shows 37 miles. True mileage is unknown, and the seller reports that the odometer was reset during the 1990s refurbishment.
The 3.4-liter inline-six is equipped with dual overhead camshafts and is paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Per the seller, the engine and transmission were rebuilt at the time of the overhaul completed in 1996, and just a handful of miles have been added since. In August 2019, the fuel system was flushed, the coolant and battery were replaced, and the engine and differential oil were changed.
