Balloon shoes: 1954 Jaguar XK120 O.T.S.


O.T.S. is the original name given by the factory to these cars to indicate an Open Two Seater car.


This XK120 has been carried out from somewhere (an enclosed space we suppose) where it was sleeping since many years. Watching those strange wheels with those giant tires we suppose that the last time that this car saw the road is during the seventies, but of course we can’t have this certainty nor the seller says anything about it.


The seller has posted a lot of photos but most of them are useless: the car is pictured from every angle of the outside but there isn not a photo of the interiors or of the engine bay. Probably they’re not so important as the car has no engine and trans: avtually this project seems solid but we suppose that, without the orifginal wheels and the power unit, the asking price should be at least $10K lower. Find it for sale at $46,500 here in  Greenwich Village, NY.
