We are offering a 1951 Jaguar XK 120 Fixed Head Coupe with particular VIN 679042 which makes this the 42nd left hand drive car produced. I purchased this car many years ago with intentions of restoring but life changes have convinced me to let this one go. Best described as a barn find it requires a total restoration but is a great starting place. Found here in Atlanta Ga. it still has its 1975 tag when last on the road. We don't have a Heritage Certificate but the following is the indicated data. Motor # W 3556-8 both on head and block. Body number J 1409 and gearbox number JH 7937. Please see all my photos to confirm. We rebuilt the starter last month and actually got the motor to run for about 10 seconds by changing the oil cleaning the points and filling the carb bowls before the fuel leaked out. Happy to report no bad engine noises and oil pressure on the guage. There are no radiator hoses or bottom crank pulley so that where we stopped. Correct Smooth valve covers and Air cleaners which are a Can located in the inner fender. The car Steers well and goes in and out of all gears. Wiring harness is toast as well as a Non Jaguar Fuel tank. The Body is very straight with some apparent damage to the left front fender. The doors open and close but need adjustment.
