History for XK120 OTS LHD 1954 Jaguar XK 120 OTS LHD (dispatched August 23, 1953). Highly maintained 57,655 mi original, VIN 674217. The current owner purchased the car in August 2004, in Branford, Ct. from the surviving spouse of an engineer and highly respected member of VSCCA and Jaguar Clubs. They purchased the car in June, 1962, when they first married. The first owner we believe was the filmmaker, Robert Downey, Sr. (not documented) and that the second owner was a train conductor (must have gotten good tips!). Ann and her husband were the third owner for the next forty-two years. In the last four years and 1,700 miles of my ownership, I have added Bill Bassett restored top and side curtains, as well as new carpets, boot carpet, and tonneau. Additionally, I commissioned new stainless exhaust, Vredestein Sprints and tubes (5), rebuilt Moss box (John Esposito, Ct.), completely rebuilt braking system w/mild race linings (Mike DiCola, Valley Vintage, Hadley, MA), correct Radiomobile w/modern internals and Ipod capability (Alan Marchant, Vintage Wireless, England), and Lucas PF 700’s and 770’s. Silver, red leather and carpets, black hood. (Original color was Birch gray.) New wind wings from XKs unlimited – to be attached. Beautiful chrome, very good paint, and detailed engine compartment. When I purchased it and today, I see no visible rust and believe Ann when she said that the car was barely ever in the rain. Original and complete, including original tools, jack, grease gun. Bakelite battery covers, and Smutty tire pump. 9.840 JANE Driver’s Class August, 2006 (prior to receiving side curtains). Last summer I had the front end rebuilt and aligned by Daigle’s, Springfield, Massachusetts.
