• Extensive nut and bolt restoration

3.4-litre high-lift, twin-cam inline six-cylinder engine, 180 HP, four-speed gearbox
As the rest of the world began to catch up with this shooting star, Jaguar’s engineers refused to rest on their laurels and elevated performance in 1951 with the SE (Special Equipment) package, which this particular example on offer delivers. The SE fortified the engine with high-lift camshafts, stronger rear springs, attractive dual exhaust and a better flywheel; the result was an additional 20 horsepower and an even smoother ride. The SE also received a new set of the now-iconic wire rims, which not only added to the aesthetic appeal, it achieved a striking look for footwear that would stay with Jaguar for decades. Among the most desirable of post-war automobiles ever made, only 7,614 XK120 Roadsters were produced.
The 1953 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster we have the pleasure to offer you here has undergone a nut and bolt restoration with no expense spared. Prior to its several-year restoration, the car enjoyed most of its sheltered life in Escondido, California where it remained in all-original condition. Today, it is a true testament to its restoration’s level of expertise. This Special Equipment XK120 retains all matching numbers for its chassis, engine and gearbox and it’s running beautifully. It has been aptly returned to its former aesthetic glory with original black color-coded paint by Sacio Enterprises in San Diego, which has also overseen the restoration process. The original wire rims and all brightwork have been refinished to a bright gleam. The interior is flawless and has been refitted with a correct red leather interior. The result is the whole package - a striking example that is as alluring now as the day it was purchased.
