Description:

1954 Jaguar XK SE

I'm pleased to offer this 1954 Jaguar XK120 SE, in running and driving order. The car is very original and extremely solid for its age (as attached pictures will show). It even sports its original paint which is in need of attention but usable as is. This is an estate car, most of it's life being in New York, and could be found in very good order. The interior is complete and newer, with plush leather seats and wool carpets. The body is rock solid and shows no signs of accident damage or rust; seams are all excellent and the doors shut with a solid "thunk"!
The sills and door shut pillars are all very solid - these are usually weak points on these cars. The aluminum hood and boot are straight and without kinks - another usual problem. The boot is rock solid with spare tire tray in solid condition. The chrome is shiny and will not embarrass anyone. The engine bay is very clean with evidence of new (non-original) wiring probably added for safety and practicality. This is an "SE" (Special Edition).
The SE head on the motor (see pictures with number) is the racing version and much more powerful and sought after.
The motor starts readily, and has the classic Jaguar throaty (rorty) sound (see video attached). The oil pressure is excellent at plus 40lbs at idle. Underneath, while the car has not been detailed one might think it had been. It is very very clean and rust and grease free (an attest to being kept in climate controlled storage).
Again, there is no evidence of structural damage. The electrics all work as they should with no issues. (see pictures attached). The hydraulics are in working order. The fabric top is in good order but showing its age, but rear vinyl window is clear.
A set of original side curtains are with the car, in good order, and show well. The original painted wire wheels (SE Spec) are in good order but the tyres are old and should be replaced.Some additional information:- Prior to sale the car will receive a tune-up including points, plugs, condenser, points, etc.
-In addition the car has received an oil change and filter.
- Fluids were changed/flushed: Transmission, Diff, Brakes, Radiator.
-Tie rod ends on both right and left have been replaced.
Thank you, serious inquiries invited.
