Sellers description:
1954 Jaguar XK120 Roadster

This absolutely first class Jaguar XK120 OTS was built on the 18th February 1954 and left the factory finished in its current colour Birch Grey. This matching numbers car was supplied new by Hornburg, Los Angeles and first owned by Ignacio Valiente, an Argentinian living in the Orange County. The car is fully Jaguar trust inspected with a verified certificate confirming it to be an S.E. specification car. It retains its original engine, #F 2244-8 this is interesting being an 8-1 compression engine rather than most other U.S. cars that were 7-1, also the original Gearbox # JL 20869 is still fitted as is the Salisbury axle.
This XK was imported in 2011 by a Period Jaguar racer, Formula 2 and Sportscar driver, very well known and in many Phillip Porter books. On arrival in the UK it was fully rebuilt using many period modifications such as competition rear axle mounting involving metal inserts on the bushes for the rear lever dampers, slightly lower front suspension, high performance radiator and the engine has been fully rebuilt using Mahler pistons and rings, new camshafts, reground crank, new clutch and a fully rebuilt gearbox.

A full body off rebuild was completed and the car painted in its original Birch Grey. The chassis is truly outstanding and completely rust free, typical of a South Californian car. The body is exceptional and certainly one of, if not the best we've had. The interior and doors have been fully re-trimmed and rebuilt in Black hide as has had the cockpit surround, carpets and new mohair tonneau replaced. All interior work was carried out by an XK specialist and the dash board is original and patinated. The XK120 is fitted with a genuine C-Type steering wheel and the car is a long hood and tonneau car with a brand new hood and fully rebuilt frame that fits well. The door cards are hand made from wood and leather covered with sound proofing and carpet to the pocket, they are beautiful and a substantial bill for this work is provided.

The car drives perfectly with a rebuilt steering box, rebuilt brakes with new linings and shoes and has competed in several events. The engine is perfect holding excellent oil pressure and offers impressive performance. A brand new six branch stainless steel exhaust system has been fitted and offers a lovely note, the original Moss gearbox is exceptionally good to use with excellent changes and the car feels quick, responsive and fantastic fun. 793 YUY presents beautifully with gorgeous top quality gleaming paint finish, a first class straight body, stunning interior and chrome work and the engine bay has been beautifully prepared and detailed and is correct body colour being a later XK120. The 120 Roadster comes with its original fully rebuilt 54 spoke wire wheels fitted with Blockley tyres, it also comes with 60 spoke competition wire wheels and Blockley Radial tyres. This car is all the round perfect combination having a perfect chassis, wonderful rust free shell and is quite simply sublime on the road. 793 YUY is a very special car and will not disappoint.
