If you’re looking to sell your 1954 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe or are simply looking for some quality resources and Seller’s Tips as you contemplate the decision to sell, you’ve come to the right place. The Alex Manos team is a California classic car dealership based in Los Angeles that has assisted hundreds of sellers with their classic car needs and also purchases classic cars of all makes, models and conditions if they feel they would be a good addition to their collection. The 1954 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe is an interesting Jaguar classic, as it was produced in the last year of the XK120 series. The Fixed Head Coupe body style, introduced to the line in 1951, is also appealing to collectors and Jaguar enthusiasts because it was the first true closed top Coupe in the lineup. More than just a Drop Head Coupe with a hardtop, it was a true fixed top design. What’s more, the Fixed Head Coupe was available at a fraction of the cost when compared to the DHC and Roadster, and was still less than a third of the cost of comparable Ferrari sports cars of the time. It is these items that make the 1954 Jaguar XK120 FHC desirable both then and now.


1954 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe Seller’s Guide

One of the main factors that come into play when selling most 1954 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe models is rust. Rust plagues these early model Jaguar XK’s, as virtually no rust protection was used during this era of British sports car production. If you’re selling a 1954 Jaguar XK – or any classic Jaguar – being honest and upfront about any current rust or areas of rust repair is a must. Buyers expect that there will be some, particularly on models that are being marketed as candidates for restoration, have been neglected for years, or that have recently been pulled out of a barn. On the other hand, if your car is being advertised as a pristine, showroom quality original or a model that has undergone a complete and exhaustive restoration, there should be very little to no rust. Quite simply, your asking price should be reflective of the overall condition of your car, including rust. A qualified classic car expert like those at can assist you in evaluating your car’s condition and current value in the market.
