Car to be at auction 3/10
www.rmauctions.com/CarDetails.cfm

Auction description:
Automobiles of Amelia Island
Saturday, March 13, 2010
1954 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupe

LOT: 181
Estimate:
$100,000-$125,000 US
Chassis No. 678068

This lovely XK120 was acquired by the current owner last year from Kyle Grim of Columbus, Ohio, who specializes in Jaguar restorations and is well respected in the industry. Grim’s restoration was a complete frame-up project that lasted about one year. As presented, the car is finished in red with a tan interior with lovely woodwork. A matching numbers example, the engine was outfitted with the upgraded C-Type cylinder head during restoration. Since its acquisition, the car has been driven sparingly and has been maintained in the owner’s climate controlled garage. Additionally, the vendor commissioned additional mechanical and electrical work to ensure the car runs and drives without any problems. All of the maintenance records will be available for review in the auction office onsite at Amelia Island. A well sorted example, complete with the proper tool roll, it is ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next owner.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
