This exceptional 1954 Jaguar XK 120 SE Roadster was delivered new into the USA in April 1954 and sold via the now famous New York Jaguar distributor Hoffman Motor Cars, then Jaguar distributor for the eastern United States. We understand that the first owner hailed from New Jersey, cherishing and using it minimally and then taking it off the road in 1967. The car's second owner/collector/restorer purchased it in February 1974 and it then remained in this same ownership for the next 30 years.

The current owner, with access to his own in-house restoration facility, has since given this matching numbers Jaguar a lengthy ground-up, nut and bolt restoration over an 8-10 year period and this has been undertaken to an exacting degree of standard with priority given to mechanical driving performance paramount over preparing the car for any show circuit duties. Remembering that it was delivered new as a Special Equipment model (thus featuring the improved cylinder heads and with a dual exhaust producing an extra 20bhp compared to the stock XK 120 models) this car has since benefitted from a complete engine rebuild and is now with overbored cylinders, C-Type camshafts, valves guides and springs all of which further enhance the performance. Since we count ourselves (Mr. Morris actually) an XK120 owner for over 30 years, it is his opinion that this example drives and performs quite supremely. The mileage showing now is about 11,500 and which is some 1,500 or so miles since the restoration was finished and, quite possibly, still the correct and original mileage from new. The roadster is finished in the rewarding color scheme of dark Pacific blue paintwork with red leather upholstery and it is offered fitted with chrome 60-spoke wire wheels, a tool roll, knock-off hammer, air pump, jack, workshop manual and a tonneau cover.

1954 JAGUAR XK120 "CONCOURS RESTORED BY MARCH SPECIALIST, STUNNING IN EVERY WAY, THE FINEST!!!"

VIN S675512

The Classic Car Gallery is proud to offer this Concours Quality 1954 Jaguar XK 140 Roadster. Mechanically and cosmetically restored over a ten year period by a Marque Specialist, this car may be one of the finest on the market today. This car was restored by BRIARCLIFF CLASSIC AND IMPORTED CAR SERVICE, of Briarcliff New York. BCI is a world-renowned shop, known for its Concourse quality restorations. The car was owned and restored by the owner of the shop for his own personal use. This is an original numbers matching car. Finished in Stunning NAVY BLUE with RED Leather interior, this roadster shows as one of the most beautiful cars we have seen. The body is straight, the panel fit being far better than factory specs. Her rebuilt ORIGINAL motor runs beautifully, and the twin SU carbs are tuned to perfection. No expense was spared during the restoration. She was stripped to bare metal and every part of the car was restored.

Original engine Rebuilt
Original Transmission Rebuilt
Full suspension rebuild and restoration
New Chrome wire wheels
New wiring harness
Entire Hydraulic System Replaced, including All wheel cylinders, master cylinder and stainless steel brake lines.
Stainless Steel exhaust
Rebuilt Carburetors
New fuel tank
New fuel pump

The rebuilt, original, transmission shifts as new. The rear differential was likewise rebuilt at that time, and the clutch was replaced. The suspension was restored and rebuilt, as were all bushings, rubber, shocks and bearings. The brakes, hydraulics, electrics (including wiring harness) and exhaust likewise were replaced at the time of restoration. The restored interior is in excellent condition, including the RED leather seats, red carpets and red leather dash. The only deviation from stock is that the seat backs were crafted to give the interior 6" more inches of legroom; normal sized adults can now drive this car!!! The roadster top and mechanism has been restored and is in as-new condition. All of the chrome on the car is like new, as are the lights, lens and covered headlights. The car runs on beautiful wire wheels (new), and new Vredestein radial tires. The underside is excellent and shows as near new. This car is extremely well sorted, and runs better than any XK we have driven. Simply turn the key and press the starter button and this car fires immediately and settles down to a beautifully idle. The sound of these cars cannot be replicated. This car is the epitome of a British sports car, and gives the feel that only an XK roadster can deliver. This is one of the finest XK's we have ever seen, needing nothing except an enthusiastic new owner!!!

Sellers description:
1954 Jaguar XK120 OTS Roadster completely restored to concours, award winning level. Finished in Midnight Blue with Red Connelly leather interior.

The Build date on Chassis #S675512 was April 30th 1954. Originally sold by Hoffman Motorcars, this XK120 eventually wound up in the hands of a highly respected marque specialist for his private collection. He painstakingly restored the car to the highest level possible. The car still retains it's original engine ( F3009/8S ) and matching four speed gear box ( JL22787 ) as verified by Jaguar Cars NA. Both were completely rebuilt during the restoration process.

The car was recently entered in a regional car show at Saratoga Springs New York where it effortlessly took best in class.

The quality of the restoration ( which took ten years to complete ) is apparent with your first glance. The panel fit, finish, interior trim, chrome, lighting, leather interior, seals, wheels and tires, engine and engine bay are all in magnificent condition.

The car runs beautifully and starts right up. Every light and switch work as they should. The restoration included........the original engine and transmission being totally rebuilt, the entire suspension rebuilt or restored, new Chrome wire wheels, new wiring harness, the entire Hydraulic System replaced including All wheel cylinders, master cylinder and stainless steel brake lines. It was fitted with a Stainless Steel exhaust system. The carburetors were rebuilt and a new fuel tank and fuel pump were fitted.

The rebuilt, original, transmission shifts as new. The rear differential was likewise rebuilt at that time, and the clutch was replaced. The suspension was rebuilt including all bushings, rubber, shocks and bearings. The brakes and hydraulics were replaced at the time of restoration. The restored interior is in amazing condition, including the red leather seats, red carpets and red leather dash. The only deviation from stock is that the seat backs were crafted to give the interior 6" more inches of legroom allowing a taller driver than what the car was originally built for. All of the chrome on the car is like new, as are the lights, lens and covered headlights. The car was fitted with new Vreedestein radial tires. The underside is excellent and shows as new. This car is extremely well sorted, and runs better than any XK that you will drive. Just turn the key and press the starter button and this car fires immediately and settles down to a beautifully idle. The exhaust note of this car is intoxicating. This car is the epitome of a British sports car, and gives the feel that only an XK Roadster can deliver. This is one of the finest XK's we have ever seen, needing nothing except an enthusiastic new owner!!! It is priced to sell.

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?
