Jaguar XK120 OTS Lovely conditions (1954)




This Jaguar XK120 Open Top Speedster was originally supplied by the Californian, Los Angles based Hornburg Jaguar dealership in 1954. The car still sports the same colour it left the factory with as well as having retained its original engine. In other words, this is a matching colour and numbers example. The car has already been restored and is in good shape.
Let us start underneath with our description. The chassis is of course completely rust-free and looks good. The bodywork has been very well looked after with only slight signs of use. The correctly aligned panelwork is nice and thin. The recently replaced and well-fitting hood is easy to operate. The hood frame is also up to standard. The red finish was expertly reapplied and still presents neatly with only a few blemishes detected. The chrome wire wheels, bumpers and other brightwork all look very presentable.
Inside the car, we find nicely and ever so slightly worn beige leather upholstery. The seats are comfortable. The walnut burr dash looks stunning. The original gauges are clear to read and all the original controls are in a good state.
The engine and transmission have been rebuilt. The car has the use of a 3.4-litre straight-six engine, producing 160 bhp transferred to the rear wheels via a manual 4-speed gearbox. The gear shift is smooth with ratios supremely suited to the engine. Both the well-maintained brakes and suspension perform their respective jobs more than adequately. The good quality tyres with ample tread also contribute to the car’s overall good driving calibre.
The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirm the matching colours and numbers. This Jaguar XK 120 OTS, ready to be enjoyed for many more miles, is from a time when Jaguar ruled the British
car industry supremely, whilst the whole world queuing up to lay their hands on the fast wild cats from Coventry!
