For Sale: 1953 Jaguar XK120 in Des Moines, Iowa

Vehicle Description

Check out the beautiful body lines on this jet black Jaguar XK120 Roadster with gorgeous red leather interior, rolling on new chrome wire wheels and wide whites, upgraded with
great options
for the ultimate driving experience and the original parts on the side. This original black roadster is a
true work of art on 4 wheels and unlike most XKs this car is a true pleasure to drive. It has a
mirror finish paint that is laid over a gorgeous Jaguar body with incredible body lines and lots of newer chrome and stainless to set off this black beauty. Most of the restoration was completed in the late 90s and looks just as good as the day it was done.
According to the three previous owners this is a very low mileage, well preserved, 52,600 mile car and this is one of the owners favorite cars in the shop and
its will have a few miles before it is sold. This car came from the factory as an extremely rare black and blue car. The entire interior was replaced by lush red interior and is absolutely stunning. The dash cockpit area has very nice crisp gauges. If you have ever driven a XK120 you know that there is limited leg room. This car has been upgraded with very nice Jaguar racing seats or
choice of
original red
leather seats and slightly smaller Jaguar Motolita real wood steering wheel and will drive comfortably with a 6 foot driver. The original seats come with the car. The black top is new and was just refurbished with power coated top assembly, new pads, rubbers and brand new cloth top. Now for the best part. This British roadster sports a healthy higher horsepower 220hp Jaguar 4.2 liter engine topped off with twin HD-8 2 inch SU carbs. The original engine comes on the side. The transmission gearbox is not nearly as whiny, upgraded with a Jaguar T-5
5-speed transmission that shifts beautifully, with the original transmission on the side. The car stops on a dime upgraded with MK9 Jaguar disc brakes with the original drum brakes on the side. The undercarriage is exceptional with great metal structure including frame, inner rocker and clean rebuilt suspension.
This Black Jaguar doesn't purr, it roars down the road with new stainless exhaust. Rolling on brand new chrome wire wheels, new wide white tires and major curb appeal.
