We are delighted to offer a factory right hand drive 1953 Jaguar XK120. This particular car being chassis number S669017 was completed 28th April 1953 and despatched on the 11th May 1953 to Brysons, Sydney, arriving on the “Dorset”. The car was sold new on 14th July 1953 to Dr Walter O Pye. Today the car presents really well. The paint has high gloss, however, on closer inspection there are some stone chips, nicks and minor scratched consistent with a car that is driven and used. There is the odd blister / bubble evident in the paint, particularly on the front guard seams. The panel gaps are generally very good and structurally the car looks really solid. The chrome, exterior trim and glass is also in good condition that is consistent with the overall appearance of the car. The interior is well presented, clean and tidy. There are no rips or tears in the seats and all of the instruments and controls are in good condition. There is a soft top with the car that is in average condition. The owner proudly reports he’s never had it up in his near on twenty years of ownership! With some fettling it could be made serviceable. There is also a tonneau cover in good condition and sider curtains. The wire wheels are in excellent condition. Out on the road the car drives really well and mechanically it appears to be in very good order. It starts easily and once warm is a treat to drive. The gearbox is as smooth as a Moss box can be and the car steers and stops as it should. The performance of the car is excellent. Classic Jaguars are in high demand and these early XK’s are just ‘very cool’. Price: $149,950.
