Description for JAGUAR XK-120 OTS 1954

Fiery red exterior with biscuit interior. Excellent original car (except perishables). Runs and sounds great with dual SS exhausts. A driver that wins over "Trailer Queens" at Concours! One of the last produced XK-120s, this gem is a top example of that iconic/classic car, a quintessential work of rolling art to be fully appreciated by being driven out on the road.

The present owner (who judges at Concours d'Elegance events) searched for 5 years for the exceptional car that had all elements essential to an outstanding XK-120 combination: power and sleekness with no disturbances to break the design; a sexy, racy color, dual exhausts, molded (non-chrome)signal lights and no rear view mirror(s) on the fendersto distract from the flowing lines of the car, skirts on the rear wheels and beauty rings on the front. Most importantly, a driver in superior original condition that turns heads while enjoying exercise. After looking at dozens of cars in numerous states, this "Yes!” was found in Malibu, CA. The location proved advantageous because after the car was fully vetted locally, the owner and her husband drove it up the coast on beautiful Big Sur Coast Highway 1 and then took it over to XK's Unlimited facility in San Luis Obispo (recognized as the premier classic restoration Jaguar shop). The car was in fine condition but (perfection desired) was left there for a couple of months where a thorough and extensive mechanical overhaul was completed and everything either replaced with proper, authentic parts or fully repaired as necessary.

This car has been lovingly maintained and garaged (pajamas in winter) ever since. Complete service records are available. All original tools are included along with the folding top, side curtains, and car manual. The Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate confirms the authenticity and originality of this outstanding car.

This is one of the best examples of XK-120s to be found, and it is well priced at $115,000 for a private sale. The owner decided not to go to auction (even though we were told itwould sell for at least this price) because a direct sale significantly benefits both buyer and seller.If you add in the normal Buyer's premium to be added on at auction, this price via a direct sale is a very attractive price and a much better deal for a buyer.
