VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

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.

Classic Car Overview

First shown at the 1948 London Motor Show, the XK120 concept immediately set the automotive world on fire. Combining a curvaceous body with a world-class motor capable of taking the car up to 120 miles per hour. It walked the walk as well, holding the record for fastest production vehicle until 1955 at 124.6 mph, or 135 with modified gears, aero windscreen, and a tonneau cover in place! The car was singularly responsible for making Jaguar a feared name on racetracks and road rallies, contributing to several Le Mans wins during the 1950s. Sales success of the XK120 across worldwide showrooms totaled 12,055 units built in three body configurations over its six-year lifespan! One option available to further enhance the XK120 performance for owners looking for a more spirited race feel would be the SE (Special Equipment) package. It would provide a high compression head, higher lift camshaft; special crankshaft damper; matching distributer, plugs, and carburetor needles; lightened flywheel with heavy duty clutch, beefed up torsion bars and springs, wire spoke wheels, and special dual exhaust. This SE package became commonly referred to as the "M" for modified here in the USA. Outside of the early aluminum XK120s, these are quite possibly the most desirable of open XK-series Jaguars to have in your English car collection today. This Jaguar XK120 SE Open-Two-Seater represents one or just 2,206 left-hand-drive models built between 1950-1954. We are excited to offer this very late production 1954 Jaguar XK120 SE OTS Roadster finished in gorgeous Gloss Black over Red interior. Power comes from its original, numbers matching 3442cc DOHC Inline 6 8.0:1 compression engine (#F4033-8S) making an impressive 180 factory rated horsepower, mated to a upgraded Tremec 5-speed manual transmission. It has undoubtedly received a very competent period correct competition-style restoration and drives every bit as good as it looks! It starts easily, all gauges are functional, as well as the wipers, horn, turn signals, interior & exterior lighting, etc. The full running temperature never exceeds 85 degrees Celsius on an extended test drive, and oil strong pressure at idle and under throttle! Clutch engagement is smooth, and braking is reliable and confident under all conditions! It is surprisingly quick and a splendid joy to operate! This special XK120 SE has been treated to some race-inspired body modifications that include a beautifully louvered hood, lower front fenders, and behind the wheels on the rear quarters to better direct airflow over and around the car while also helping reduce engine compartment temperature. Under the hood, you will see an exhaust header feeding the dual exhaust system, both made of stainless steel, that produce the most glorious of engine sound! Additional features include larger SU HD8 2-inch carburetors, Mallory dual-point distributor, lowered suspension, Spax adjustable shock dampers, polyurethane front end suspension bushings
