1953 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe

The Jaguar XK120, manufactured from 1948 to 1954, was Jaguars first sports car since the SS100 was released prior to the war. First released as a Roadster, then also as a DHC from 1953 and a closed, or FHC from 1951, the Jaguar XK120 offered an affordable and powerful car. Perhaps the most under-represented model in the XK120 lineup is the FHC. The 1953 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe boasts a truly distinct style that is almost impossible to replicate. Not just an open 2-seater with a hardtop attached, the FHC was meticulously designed to turn heads.

Looking to purchase a classic Jaguar?

If youre thinking about buying a 1953 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe, here are a few tips from the professionals at ER Classics. First, rust is clearly the enemy on these classic cars. Fixing body panel issues during a restoration project is not for the amateur restorer. It is crucial to find a car with a solid frame and body; however, frame rust doesnt seem to be as much of an issue as body rust on these vehicles. Lucas electrical systems are also an important component that should be checked out prior to purchasing any Jaguar XK120.
