Car to be at auction 6/09
Lot No: 266
1953 Jaguar XK120 Roadster
Chassis no. S-674232
Engine no. W9622-8S
This car comes with its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate confirming it to have been supplied new as an SE model. The ‘SE’ designation, literally Special Equipment meaning the addition of wire wheels and a dual rear exhaust for an extra $350.00. It was built on 27 August 1953 and shipped to Jaguar distributor Max Hoffman in New York, from whom it was sold new to its first owner Charles Krauss of Cresskill New Jersey on 27 January 1954.
It is reported that the XK had an extensive restoration in the early 1990s, which included the refurbishing of every mechanical component, and refinishing the cosmetics to a very high standard in its original colors of Pastel green with a suede green interior. Following the restoration it was shown at many Jaguar (JCNA) events always scoring 99 or higher out of 100 points.
The car still shows as if the restoration was just completed, and is a pleasure to drive. It comes with numerous awards and the B.M.I.H.T. certificate, original tools and books, and is ready for the concours circuit or just to be driven and enjoyed.
Estimate: $100,000 - 125,000

1953 Jaguar xk 120 roadster
Location: New York, previously Connecticut
Transmission:4 Spd Manual
This exceptional example is in spectacular condition in every respect having been the subject of a high quality cosmetic restoration by noted Restorer Wayne Carini. Prior to that the car had been completely mechanically restored. The car runs very, very well and is ready for long distance touring, but should really go collect a bunch of trophies first. Finished in a very rare and striking color combination and featuring the proper spats this XK 120 Roadster will provide years of driving and touring enjoyment to the lucky new owner. The car starts right up runs smoothly, shifts well stops well and is ready for the road. The car is accompanied by a nice set of factory tools and books, side curtains, and tonneau cover.
