Just completed a flawless five-year body-off $200,000 restoration. Painted the original factory Dove Grey with red Connelly leather, and fully documented with Jaugar Heritage Certificate.
Everything on this remarkable XK120 is either restored original or freshly rebuilt. This Jaguar still retains its original hood emblem, remarkably preserved original Lucas twin battery covers, original factory translucent lavender sun visors, and even the hand written “XK120” in wax is still visible on the side of the petrol tank (left untouched during restoration).
Restoration performed by Bach Racecraft of Verona, WI and engine rebuild by PHP RaceEngines in Wauconda, Illinois including dyno testing. Fully sorted after 300 miles road testing. Dash and door capping veneer is a work of art. A complete tool roll, owner's manual and correct Smith's jacking system are included. The steering wheel is new while the center cap original. All of the instruments have been professionally rebuilt and work accurately. The original orange ignition coil was retained during restoration as installed by the dealer in 1955. The dual air cleaner canister is original. The wiring harness is new, and the wiper motor rebuilt. The correct dual SU fuel pump is visible in the undercarriage photos, as well as the leather wrapped (gaitors) rear leaf springs. With the exception of the windshield, all factory glass is original including the domed rear window.
Only one in seven XK120s carried this dramatic Fixed Head Coupe coachwork during just two years of production. Acquired from the previous owner of 50 years who drove it just five times. Always stored inside and without rust making for the basis of a "perfect" restoration.
This is without question the finest available Jaguar XK120 FHC and will assure the new owner many rewarding miles and concours wins to come.
