- Chassis S680947- Engine W9554-8- A Matching Numbers Example- Older Restoration Completed By Marque Specialist- Former AACA National First Prize Award Recipient- Sale Includes, Spare, Air pump, Tools, Restoration Photos, And Available Service DocumentsJaguar's release of the XK120 in 1948 must have been a tremendous relief to motoring enthusiasts enduring the post-war recovery of the civilian automobile market. Due to both the switch to war effort manufacturing and the bombing campaigns in western Europe, the immediate years following World War 2's conclusion saw manufacturers ramping up production with models introduced prior to the conflict. It would take several years for all new lineups to be developed making this period a rather bland rehash of the late depression offerings. Although Jaguar was very much in the same position producing their 4 and 6 cylinder saloon cars, their latest creation had been a long time coming. Throughout the war, Sir William Lyons' team of engineers began developing an advanced motor with enough power to stay ahead of the competition for several years. His goals were achieved, and the legendary XK motor was introduced to the public with its hemispherical combustion chamber and dual overhead cams. To house this specular power plant, the company needed an equally spectacular vehicle: enter the XK120. Its svelte body and sweeping curves were an immediate hit at the London Motor Show, and public demand for the sports car led to full-scale production not soon after. Early examples featured alloy bodies and are the most sought after as a result. However, the expensive construction meant that steel would be employed for all subsequent vehicles, but these cars would still retain aluminum doors, hood, and trunk lids. 1951 would see the introduction of the Fixed Head Coupe body style and the drophead version followed in 1953. Coinciding with these additions, Jaguar further offered an 'SE' option (Special Equipment) that featured a more powerful engine with higher lift camshafts and dual exhausts. This 1954 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe, chassis S680947, was completed in Coventry, England in the final year of production before the updated XK140 was released. First and foremost, the vehicle retained its original engine, W95548, through the years and is a wonderful 'matching numbers' example. According to the title, the vehicle was initially delivered to a lucky individual in New Jersey and likely purchased through Hoffman in New York. In the 1970s, this XK120 came into the possession of Steve Helms, a Reading Pennsylvania-based English car specialist. Under his care, the Jaguar was fully restored to an incredible standard in 1983/4 which resulted in the vehicle receiving an AACA National First Prize award in 1985 and the medallion displaying this feat still accompanies the car to this day. In 1988, the Jaguar changed hands to the family who has kept the vehicle to this date. We believe this to be a 3 owner XK120.Photos from the time of the restoration show the car completely stripped down to its base components. The body and chassis were separated and individually dealt with. Images of the pre-restoration chassis show the state of the mechanicals to be in fair condition, and the reassembled components showed like new after installation. The body is shown to have been stripped down to bare metal and repainted in a fresh coat of white paint while the interior was refinished with parchment leather. Since the completion of the project, the car was sparingly driven, and just 1,300 miles have been put on the odometer. At the beginning of the1990s, this Jaguar had been placed within a climate-controlled storage facility and ran occasionally. However, in the past 10 years, the XK has remained untouched.
