Auction 22717:
Greenwich Concours d'Elegance Auction
31 May 2015 12:30 EDT
Greenwich
From the Italian Vintage Cars Collection
1954 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupe
Chassis no. 678344
Engine no. F-3004-8
3,442cc DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder Engine
2 SU Carburetors
160bhp at 5,000rpm

Offered from a fine Northeast Collection known as the Italian Vintage Cars Collection, the majority of which were sold with Bonhams here in Greenwich in 2010, this Jaguar was clearly an anomaly in a very focused group of cars. But it is perhaps not too surprising that a collection with strong themes of design and quality should have a few extensions as comparisons. Collectors with tastes for such things can't overlook exquisite ground breaking artworks such as an XK120.

The model that the brothers who own the collection chose is a particularly good and honest example. According to Jaguar Daimler Heritage it was delivered new precisely 61 years ago on May 31, 1954, through West Coast Jaguar Agents, Hornburg of Los Angeles. Then, as now, it wore black paintwork, had a biscuit interior and French Grey top.

The XK joined the collection in 2002, by which time it had already been refurbished in those original colors. These aspects when contrasted with the plethora of chrome, and in the standard form with disc wheels and rear wheel spats, make for a great look and in essence the purest guise of an XK120.

The owners report it to be a very strong running car, and a nice driver.

www.gatewayclassiccars.com/DEN/270/1954-Jaguar-XK120

Sellers description:
With a professional restoration meticulously finished in 2012, this 1954 Jaguar XK120 Drop Head convertible is truly a sight to behold. The XK120 was the fastest production car of its day and was a strong competitor on race day winning a few 24-hour endurance races including Mt. Druitt in Australia back in 1954. The “120” represented the top speed right from the factory. This XK120 is in excellent shape and has had a few minor upgrades bringing it up to date and making it an excellent driver’s car including converting the electrical system to 12 volt from 6 volt, an electronic ignition, electric fan for optimal cooling, and a tremec 5-speed manual transmission adding synchros in all gears and an overdrive gear. These upgrades do not take away from the original looks of the car but increase the drivability dramatically. Redone just this last year in 2017 included the top end of the engine rebuilt with new valve seats for pump gas, rebuilt SU carburetors, rebuilt brake cylinders on all corners, new plugs and wires installed, and in 2018 the interior was reupholstered, and the paint was ceramic coated for ease of cleaning. This Jaguar is a stunning car both to drive and admire and would make the perfect addition to a collection or dream car for a Jaguar enthusiast. This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom.

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?
