1953 Jaguar XK 120
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

This refreshed" 1953 Jaguar XK120MC DHC 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, showing 14,210 on speedo.
The 3.4L engine block is mated with the special ordered Jaguar upgraded head which, utilizing its dual exhaust pipes, produces 180 BHP earning it the "SE" special-equipment designation in the UK, aka "M" 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 re-chromed grill/lights/bumpers.
Included are: front and rear chrome bumpers, tool roll with tools, grease gun, tire pump, chassis screwjack & ratchet handle, copper/rawhide tipped wheel knock-off hammer, windscreen washer system, seatbelts with Jaguar Logo in chrome buckle, owner's manual, factory technical manual, folder with invoices, and a Jaguar-Daimler Heritage Certificate authenticating the "matching numbers".
The car is garaged in the "gated" community of Bear Valley Springs, located in the Southern California mountain town of Tehachapi, a 1 hour drive from the Bakersfield airport (BFL) and 2 hour drive from the LAX airport.
The car has participated in six 2017 classic car shows and won awards, which will be included.
