1953 Jaguar xk120 for restoration - many new parts For Sale
Xk120 DHC 1953 can be viewed in Usk, Monmouthshire.
I am less than 30 minutes from the M4 Severn Bridge in South East Wales.
The original colour was White with Red interior.
The body is almost rust free having been substantially rebuilt with new and old stock panels.
A little work remains to the lower part of the front bulkhead.
All wings are absolutely solid steel and undamaged and some of these may be new old stock.
The floors are new and there are new door hinges boxed up amongst the many loose parts as well as bonnet and boot hinges.
Some panels are loosely fitted and all will need to be properly lined up.
A kit of new special spacers/washers (both alloy in a selection of thicknesses and fibre) for body mounting comes in the boxes of loose parts.
The chassis & suspension has been rebuilt with many new parts incorporated. These include new rear springs, shock absorbers bearings and bushes all supplied by XKS Unlimited.
A new alloy fuel tank is fitted.
Seat frames and new seat backs are present and loose, these will need to be retrimmed.
All instruments are present - the petrol gauge is not fitted to the dash but is in a box.
All bumpers & most other parts are present.
Bumper brackets have been stripped and refinished New special fittings for the front bumpers come in the loose parts boxes.
A new cowhorn (bumper support) comes with the new parts.
The Hood Frame is present, clearly it will need a new hood covering.
A pair of original Lucas 770 headlamps is fitted, in addition a pair of smaller 7 inch US spec headlamps come in the parts boxes.
Door frames and door glass are installed.
The engine is a correct original XK120 unit. It turns over but no attempt has been made to start it. I am assured by the previous owner that his internal inspection (sump and cam covers removed) suggested that it had been recently rebuilt before the car was disassembled for rebuild. I am unable to confirm as I have not stripped the engine.
The radiator is there but will need to be re-cored.
It rolls happily and is easy to get onto your trailer.
So why am I selling it?
I have owned it for 6 years and have not got around to starting work on it. In the meantime I have completely restored 4 other classics, none of which I intend to sell. I do not have time to use all my existing classics as much as they deserve.
I cannot offer my wife a convincing argument as to why I should restore and keep the XK120 when I should be touring Europe with her in those cars I have already finished.
