We are pleased to offer another beautiful Jaguar sports car. This restored 1953 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupe was built on May 14 of 1953 and dispatched on May 22 of 1953. It was originally delivered to Los Angeles, CA as per the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. This car was on display at the local Jaguar store for about 12 years or so before being placed in dry storage for the past few years. We purchased this car with the intention to make a nice driver car and bring the car back to life. The car overall is a great driver and presents very well with a stunning color combination. It has a strong engine and recently was gone through with the following work completed.

  • New brake master cylinder installed
  • New water pump installed.
  • New interior trunk kit and mat.
  • New spare tire.
  • This is not a show car or trailer queen, but can be enjoyed on rallies or touring.
