Description for Jaguar Other 1954

The 1954 XK120 Roadster available here was in storage from 1998 until November 2012. It was owned and enjoyed by the same couple for over 30 years before the husband passed in 1998. Unable to part with her husband's favorite car, t was left in a garage behind the house on blocks until last year. When rescued, t was complete with the factory Primrose finish and the stock Burgundy interior. The original chrome wire wheels are clean and true, nd even the period Michelin X tires remain on the car.

The current caretaker undertook a sympathetic freshening of the car, areful to preserve as much originality as possible. The mechanicals were cleaned and lubricated, ll fluids replaced, nd the owner reports that with new gas, he Jaguar fired up readily. It stays cool, hows 45 pounds of oil pressure, uns without smoke and is incredibly sound. The car shows just over 68,000 miles on the odometer, hich according to the widow is correct, ut we do not have documentation to verify. The overall condition, owever, eads us to believe that this could easily be correct, nd after a thorough detailing, he engine bay looks fantastic.

After careful cleaning, he body and paintwork exhibit fine patina, ith significant paint checking throughout but good adhesion, nd a remarkable shine considering the long storage. The original top and side curtains are in good condition and obviously authentic, nd the condition of the seats and interior are nothing short of excellent. The aluminum brightwork and interior trim are un-pitted and very nice, ith a small crack in the original windscreen being the only noticeable flaw.

Mechanically sound and in remarkably original condition, he lovely Roadster can be reliably enjoyed with no further investment, nd will be recognized for the amazing patina it displays at any JCNA event. Consider the benefits of owning a highly original example from the last year of production of one of Jaguar's greatest achievements, he legendary XK120 Roadster.
