Sellers description from above auction:

1953 Jaguar XK120 Drop Head Coupe that has been restored to a solid original features driver. The car was obtained from an estate in Savannah, Georgia several years ago and has undergone a body off frame up rebuild/restore of all mechanical components including steering, bushings, suspension, brakes, shocks, etc. It is an all numbers matching car as verified by British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certification. This will be included with the sale. The engine runs strong with good compression and the transmission and clutch are all in sound condition and have not been rebuilt internally. Necessary gaskets and seals have been renewed. Porcelain coated exhaust manifolds and stainless steel exhaust system all new. Complete new wiring harness installed. When obtained the body was in exceptional condition considering it had been in storage for approximately 40 years. New sills and floor pans as well as shut panels installed. Door hinges new as well. Door internals rebuilt as needed and are solid and strong. Other body repair work and replacement of metals was performed to original manufacture specifications. All instruments are restored to new as original condition and operate reliably. The mileage stated is based on the original odometer reading [68k miles] when obtained. The odometer now shows 384 miles since rebuilt. Bookend matching burl walnut dash restored as original. Hartzz canvas stayfast top is fawn color with headliner as original. Red leather seat upholstery hand sewn and professionally installed. The pictures show the rest of the condition and additional pictures are available upon request. This Jaguar is located in Tampa,
I misstated that the certification of matching numbers from production records is the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (BMIHT). The Production Record Trace Certificate issued to me in December 2001 is indeed from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. Following are the production component numbers: Chassis number 677240, Engine number W 8574-8, Body number P 1241, Gearbox number JL 16956. Date of manufacture was 19th May 1953, making this a very early production XK120 DHC. All numbers have been verified as matching the number plate on the fire wall and those components still in the car. Thanks.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
