Ebay item 11/2/10
Current bid $50,100 reserve not met, 9 bids 3 days left in auction.
1953 Rally Prepared Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe, which has only come to the market due to its previous owners advancing years. The car is left hand drive and in the UK, it was imported from Kansas USA in 1991, I have all the old shipping notes, duty paid certificates and an old USA Certificate of Title, along with the current UK log book - V5. With just the one UK owner since 1991.
This XK has been fully prepared for rallying and comes with its FIVA Historic Identity Papers. She has had a very successful rallying career here in Europe, piloted by Stan Williams and Tony Davies in events such as the Winter Challenge, Tulip Rally, Icelandic Odyssey, Adriatic Rallye des Iles, Alpine Rallye, Classic Marathon etc, and always getting placed up the front.
Running a 3.8 XK unit prepared by Forward Engineering with a modified manifold on 2 HD8 carbs (original 3.4 engine comes with the car). XK150 disc brakes up front with rack and pinion steering. The cockpit has been extended for extra leg room ( 6ft+ drivers will fit !) and the chassis has been strengthened and suspension uprated to withstand rough roads. Long range alloy fuel tank fitted, louvered bonnet, oil cooler, electric cooling fan, quick release inner wings for easy access, purpose built stainless twin pipe exhaust system thats tucked up high, not too loud, thats important when you've been in the car for hours. Comes with 2 sets of wheels, 5 x std 16" wires with Firestone tyres and 5 x D-Type 15" alloy knock ons with Vedesstein snow tyres. Too much to list here.
The pix of the car rallying were taken in 2001 when she was black and righthand drive. She was put back to left hand drive in 2004/6 during the restoration as most of serious events are overseas, France, Italy etc.
This is a matching numbers car with a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, showing the car was delivered to it original USA dealer Charles Hornburg on 17th April 1953.
The car was totally rebuilt in 2004/5/6 with a full photographic record, and today is in superb order throughout having been maintained to the highest possible standards
This is a superb driving fast road rally car, ready to go anywhere. If thinking serious Jaguar this has to be the tool, and remember they don't sell these in haven.
This is a trade sale by Hunter Classics.
