Description

1954 Jaguar XK120 OTS Left Hand Drive

Chassis number: 675502

Registration Number: Applied for.

675502 was shipped to Jaguar Dealer Max Hoffman in New York in April of 1954. Its colours were black to the exterior with red to the interior; colours which it wears to this day. It is a matching numbers car.

This XK120 Open Top Sports has been the recipient of a nut & bolt Restoration to as new & is in simply stunning condition having covered just 200 shakedown miles since completion. Final fettling was performed by Marque Specialist Pat Twinly Engineering who have set the car up & tuned it.

The engine has had a full painstaking rebuild with new pistons etc. It runs at 60 degrees with good oil pressure & is still running in. Everything has been rebuilt to as new along with the gearbox & running gear. Correct wiring has been used throughout to replicate the original. It is a thing of great beauty in rare original colours which really suit the car.

On the road, the car drives beautifully. The original Moss box is a pleasure to use with new synchromesh on all gears allowing for smooth silent changes. The engine is crisp & responsive as only a Jaguar XK twin can be. You have to drive it to appreciate it. The new black mohair hood folds easily down & stows behind the seats.

The car is UK taxes paid and we are in the process of UK registering it.
