Description
This refreshed 1953 Jaguar XK120SE DHC Convertible black beauty (chassis S677155) wears the original factory color combination of black exterior and dark red interior surrounded with burl walnut wood, and is the 155th LHD DHC convertible built out of a total production of 1471 LHD cars.
The 3.4L engine block is mated with the special ordered Jaguar C-type racing head which, utilizing its dual exhaust pipes, produces 210 BHP earning it the SE special-equipment designation in the UK, aka MC modified-competition in the USA.
Numbers matching S677155 was purchased from the estate of Ivy, Virginia architect Fredrick Bainbridge III, and was part of his locally well known classic car collection from 1992 until November 2013, when it was shipped to the mountain town of Tehachapi, CA to be included in the Jaguar collection of retired Aerospace Engineer Mr. V.J. Apicella.
Mr. Apicella kept the originality of the car by refreshing its condition (not body off restoration) with new: black paint, red upholstery/carpets in cockpit trunk, black top/gray liner, black top boot cover/red piping, burl walnut wood, and rechromed grill/lights/bumpers (bumpers are included with purchase).
Included are: tool roll with tools, grease gun, tire pump, chassis screwjack ratchet handle, copper/rawhide tipped wheel knock-off hammer, windscreen washer bottle and hoses, owner's manual, factory technical manual, custom 3-ring binder containing pertinent photos and copies of original factory advertisements/racing accomplishments, folder with invoices, and a Jaguar-Daimler Heritage Certificate authenticating the matching numbers.
