1954 Jaguar XKSE 120 Roadster

This 1954 Jaguar XKSE a 2 owner car and has been owned by the second owner since 1956. This Jaguar has never been painted or restored in any way its is all original.

It was in driving condition up to two years ago when it was parked in the garage you see in the pics, it will not start because of the battery being dead. But was driving to car shows for many years.

This Jaguar is spotless no rust anywhere i can see, wow! The Interior is in great shape for a car of this age, no rips or tears, hardly and sign of wear.

Auction description:

Lot 648

1954 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster

CHASSIS NO: S675579

• An unrestored original car with just three owners from new

• An iconic British roadster with just 58,500 original miles

• Supplied with original paperwork, original tools, original manuals and title

• Desirable SE version from the final year of production

Documents: 1954 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster JDH Trust

3,442 cc DOHC inline six-cylinder engine, 180 HP, four-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes, independent front suspension with transverse wishbones and torsion bars, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs; wheelbase: 102”

This particular XK120 is an SE (Special Equipment) model, a version that includes dual exhaust, wire spoke wheels and additional front lights. The original tool kit, owner’s manual and service manual accompany your purchase. This fine XK120 SE is remarkably clean and, except for wires and hoses, it is 100% original under the bonnet. With just 58,500 miles on the clock and an impeccable appearance, this 1954 XK120 SE seems to have somehow moved effortlessly through the decades. Such a stunning car has obviously been well-cared for, with only a small careful repair in the footwells, and the highly original paint fits a survivor car perfectly. The fit and finish of the entire car simply look great. As you can tell from the images, this XK120 SE received only very limited use, as even the original leather spring gaiters are still in place. The car is in excellent condition throughout, and it is correctly described as a true survivor. The original leather interior is perfectly broken in, with only the lower kick panels replaced, and everything on the dash works perfectly.

Owned by just two caretakers since 1956, the lucky new owner will no doubt be eligible for nearly any major classic car rally or event he or she chooses. The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate confirms all numbers and paint codes and is included with the purchase. The high bidder will also join the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Cary Grant in the fraternity of XK120 owners. An excellent and highly drivable example of a true sporting legend, this exceptional, low mileage Jaguar simply begs to be driven. There is something special about high quality, authentic, original cars such as this. It truly and accurately represents the legendary XK120 just as visionary William Lyons originally intended.

Ebay item 9/22/22

www.ebay.com/itm/385128106597

Opening bid $116,250.00 reserve not met 0 bids buy it now price: $155,000, seller westcoastclassics, 58k miles. Now in Torrance, California, previously Sylvania, Ohio.

Seller's description:

West Coast Classics are proud to present an extraordinarily rare and all original (with only three caretakers/owners since new) example of this all stock and rust free coveted and highly desirable 1954 Jaguar XK 120 SE M Roadster with only 58K original miles with Left Hand Drive U.S. delivery with the optional 'M package' Special Equipment Package 180HP 3442 cc 6 cylinder engine and which was the beneficiary of a no expense spared mechanical restoration as required when purchased by only its third owner in 2009 after having been sitting for a couple of years having been purchased from the estate of only its second owner who had purchased the car in 1956 from its original owner!

Fully documented history with original paint and interior and all matching numbers original SE engine, heads and transmission! We recently acquired the car from the third owners with the car sporting an outstanding all original patina and excellent body with no damage history and no rust! The car has its all original paint and interior and will be sold with its original wheels and tires, yes tires! The car currently has four stock period correct steel wheels boasting the five optional center locks (which were available from 1951) with the spats (aka Fender Shirts in America!) being removed as was typical due to insufficient clearance for the knock off hubs (with its original 'knock off' Thor Hammer' English mallet) with new tires. The original wheels and tires are being kept separately for preservation purposes (see photos below) and are in wonderful condition and will be sold with the car, the car also has its original spare wheel in its rightful place in the trunk compartment, original roadside jack, mallet and factory tools in their original case, the original 'Fawn' color soft top and frame, and of course the car boasts its original matching numbers engine as verified by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.

This rare US Left Hand drive model was exported to the U.S.A. where it was first sold on 6/18/1954 to its original South Carolina owner from the renown 'Max Hoffman Jaguar' dealership of New York, whose Park Avenue showroom was designed by non other than the renown architect Frank Lloyd Wright! The car resided with its original owner for the next two years before it was then purchased by its second owner, William 'Bill' Shull, of Sylvania, Ohio, otherwise known simply as 'Doc', who owned and cared for the car for the next 53 years until his passing in 2009.

Doc Shull kept the car garaged in Ohio in all original condition for the next 53 years and the car was reportedly his pride and joy and a car which he drove the regularly to car shows, but would never have considered selling, even after not being able to drive the car for the two years prior to his passing due to his ill health. Upon his passing the car was sold by his family on Ebay in 2009 to what would then be only its third owner, where it was described as an absolutely all original unrestored example that had never been painted or restored in any way. The car would not start at the time of the auction as the battery was dead but as described by the family the car had been driving every year up until just two years prior. The new owner was also from Ohio and an enthusiastic classic car collector who viewed and appreciated the car's exceptional originality and rarity, obviously along with its even rarer original SE matching #'s pedigree and he consequently had owned the car as part of his collection until we acquired the car in August 2022.

The new owner, had upon purchasing the car in 2009, immediately delivered the car to his long time specialists to ensure the car would be turn key ready for his collection, at which point no expense was spared to have the car running completely right. From hoses to seals to gaskets, wheel cylinders to dual master cylinders, new brake shoes, drums, belts, points, plugs, rebuilt carbs, battery, draining gas tank, etc etc, until over some 59 hours were billed to ensure turn key driving on a still all original and unrestored car with the engine now running as smooth as silk with the 4 speed manual transmission shifting smoothly through the gears. To this day the car has been meticulously upkept and maintained, for the past 13 years, as part of the owners fastidious collection. The car drives exactly as it should with only very few miles should since its mechanical restoration.
