This car was driven about 15 miles last Friday. The price of petrol is 10 times what it was when this car was last driven. The interior is not yet completed. It is a driver not a show car.

I drove 680003 in the Jaguar Association of Central Ohio Slalom event held iMay 21, 2001 and took 1st in Class with a time of 56.6 secs. This time still stands as the JNCA best for the class. It should be noted that this is the only car that has run in the Class B catergory this year. Where are the rest of you?

Auction description:
1952 Jaguar XK 120 SE Fixed Head Coupe
$125,000 - $175,000 Offered without reserve
RM | SOTHEBY'S - ARIZONA 2018
Chassis No.S 680003
Engine No. W 5874-8S
Gearbox No. JL 12454
Body No. J 2006

Desirable "Special Equipment" model with C-Type-style cylinder head
Includes Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) Certificate
Elegant, authentic, and desirable Suede Green exterior and interior
Accompanied with service records and documents

Please note that this lot is titled as a 1953.

The 1952 XK 120 SE Fixed Head Coupe offered here was manufactured on 5 September 1952 and dispatched one week later to dealer Maximillian Hoffman in New York. It was then sold to Dr. A. F. Dooling of Dublin, Ohio, and in 1968 transferred to Jim Williams who held it for almost 40 years. Later it was acquired by the current owner, a dedicated automobile collector and retired body shop owner.

According to the owner, the XK 120 had a comprehensive body and mechanical restoration. Brightwork has been redone, and the car's exterior finish and interior trim have been restored to their original, rare, and highly appealing Suede Green color. The owner has had the factory seats replaced with period-correct seats to allow greater legroom. The original seats are available, and can be reinstalled.

This dashing coupe is meticulously detailed throughout and stands as a clean, show-worthy example of one of the most influential, admired, and refined sports cars of all time.
