1954 Jaguar XK Description:

I have known of this car for a while and eventually I was able to buy it from the second owner of 20 years.

The owner told me; he traded his 1967 427 Corvette and money for the Jaguar to the original owner that lived in South Carolina; so the car has always lived in a warm climate which explains the rust free body and chassis.

The roadster was painted over 10 years ago and it is showing some imperfections but nothing major. The paint is way above driver quality, the body is very straight; you can tell it'd always had a good life.

Now, ...The reason this car is selling for a third of his value is that at some point; the Jag engine failed, and the owner was talked into putting a more reliable drive-train. Not, the greatest advise, anyway - he was smart enough to keep the original rear-end but not the drive-train; so it is now power by a Ford 351 matted with a 3-speed automatic transmission and Ford nine-inch rear-end.

The car runs, drives and shifts great. But this decision has affected the value, but the car still appeals to a number of different buyers. First, the guy that loves the look of a XK120 Roadster but does not have $100K to spent. Second, the Cobra guy that loves American muscle and classic styling. And third, the guy that wants to bring it back to its glory and originality.

The car does have a custom-made hardtop that was made using the original soft top frame that is the only top that car has and there are no side curtains.

The things that I know that are not factory to the car are: the engine; the transmission, exhaust system, shiftier, the rear-end; the gauges; and the seats.

So, drive the car for the next twenty years or more, the way it is or restore the car to factory specs and bring it to Pebble Beach; either way the value is there- at this price its money in bank at minimum.
