Fine Motor Cars & The Jaguar Legend, Chiswick House
Saturday 3rd July 2004
Lot 1137 1954 Jaguar XK120 fhc
Registration no: EU registered
Chassis no: 680893
Estimate: £45,000-55,000
This late 1954 Jaguar XK 120 FHC was delivered new to the U.S. and was reimported into Germany in the 1990s. Late in 2000 a total nut and bolt restoration with the view of a concours contender was started and 3 years later a remarkable result had been achieved. The attention to detail is truly outstanding and the technical condition of this car is up to the same standard. Finished in gleaming black with wire wheels and dark green leather interior ( with the rare bucket seats ) this XK 120 has museum quality and is a definite concours contender or a jewel in a collection of post war Jaguar Sports cars. There are various documents, photos and bills in its file and the US - ( copy ) title and customs cleared documents to the EU are also on hand, enabling its fortunate new owner getting it registered for immediate use. A very rare opportunity - not to be missed.

The current thinking is the above auctions (black car) were a misread of the VIN. A different car is to be at auction 3/15 with good credentials. Any confirmation of either car are welcomed.

Auburn Fall

1954 Jaguar XK 120 Fixed Head Coupe

The Cayman Island Motor Museum Collection

| Auburn, Indiana

2 - 5 September 2021

Chassis No. 680893

Engine No. W 7726-8

Body No. J 2901

Cylinder Head No. W 7726-8

Offered from The Cayman Island Motor Museum Collection

Finished in Champagne over black leather upholstery

Fitted with its numbers-matching engine block, cylinder head, and body

3.4-liter straight-six cylinder engine paired with a four-speed manual transmission

Benefits from a previous restoration

Wonderfully presented with its burlwood dashboard, Smith instrumentation, rear spats, and dual side mirrors

According to a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Production Record Trace Certificate on file, this XK 120 fixed-head coupe was completed in early March 1953 and dispatched shortly thereafter to its first owner via Max Hoffman’s New York-based distributorship. Though originally clad in Dove Grey over a red leather interior, at some point during previous ownership the car was restored to a handsome, and period-style combination of Champagne over black leather.

Observation of extant number stampings reveal that the car’s presently equipped engine block, cylinder head, and body match those listed on the JDHT documentation. Riding on steel wheels finished with factory-style hubs, this wonderfully presented XK 120 Fixed Head Coupe is now accompanied by a tool kit and spare wheel.

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?
