We are excited to be able to offer this 1953 Jaguar XK120 Drophead
Coupe finished in Black over Red Connolly hides with a black Haartz
cloth top, and most probably one of the finest examples available
on the market. It is an American delivered LHD motorcar of which
only 1,471 were produced during the model run from 1948-1954. After
many years of ownership it was shipped back to England by a highly
demanding owner who had commissioned a marque expert to orchestrate
a complete frame off body, nut and bolt restoration with an open
check...where no expenses were spared to bring it to better than
the factory standards of its original year of production...all the
while keeping it to original specs, except for one welcomed upgrade
and that being an electronic ignition. Turn the key, push the start
button and it immediately starts and runs like new. No messing with
a manual choke, and no stalling...so you can actually drive and
enjoy this masterpiece. The color combination is gorgeous,
timeless...and accentuates the beautiful lines of this XK120 which
are most desired compared to the XK140 and XK150 as this model is
less bulky and sleeker in its design execution. Tools, jack and
spare tire are all in their place. This fabulous motorcar belongs
to a south Florida gentleman and is part of his private collection.
90 pictures show the amazing condition of the entire motorcar
including the engine, interior, gorgeous top and body. The Drophead
Coupe is a much more desirable model over the OTS Roadster due to
its complete enclosure with a full windshield, glass side windows
and secure top, as well as its much lower production number making
them rare and hard to find...certainly in this condition. Show it,
drive it and enjoy the pleasure of being its next custodian. Please
feel free to contact Scott as he has a lifelong experience buying,
owning, servicing, trading and selling the finest British motorcars
available. Scott will give you a full description and assist you in
any way, including shipping anywhere in the US, or worldwide direct
to your port...and to your door.
