Hello. This is my second post today. I have a 1950's Jaguar XK 120 (maybe also fits the 140) hood (in US talk - bonnet in UK) which I picked up at a garage sale years ago "just in case" I or some other Jag enthusiast may need it one day. It is stored in Syracuse, NY, together with other Jag stuff, like the MK VII rolling chassis I advertised in my previous post a few minutes ago. I am losing my storage in Syracuse and have to clear out everything. As there is a tight deadline to vacate my storage, I have today placed an ad on eBay to sell the XK 120 hood by seven-day auction. The ID number of the ad on eBay is 122680030528. there you will find a more complete description and also many photos to show the condition. The starting bid I have suggested is 60 bucks. If it does nor sell in the auction, I will of course accept offers rather than sending the hood off to the scrap merchant. If, interested, have a look on eBay and bid. If you have questions or comments, respond either through this website or eBay, or better still, use my email and Skype contact information I have posted on eBay. I suggest Skype rather than phone numbers as I am currently on an overseas trip to many different locations so Skype is the best and cheapest way to make contact. I am online almost all day every day. Please remember that the auction will only run until September 7. I really hope that my parts may help to keep one or more 1950's Jags on the road. Incidentally, the components are located in Syracuse, NY, USA. Thanks. Alex.

Hi, baloo. OK - if the buyer at the eBay auction pulls out of the deal, I will get in touch.

Alex, I am no expert but I think your bonnet is worth a lot more than 60 bucks. Suggest you call several Jag used parts dealers and ask if they have one or what it may cost to buy one. I will be very surprised if they would not want to buy it specially if it is in good shape. I called Welsh Ent as they deal in used parts but they didn't have one. Called a couple of other dealers SNG Barratt want $7,900 for a new one made in UK. Called a Jag auto wrecker parts guy and he said you would pay a lot if you could find one. Hope that helps. Don't give it away.

Hi Glenn. Thanks for your advice. The XK120 hood sold via my eBay ad at a price somewhat higher than the $60 starting price I posted - but not that much higher. Only a few people joined in the bidding. I had to clear out my storage in USA as I no longer live there and was paying rent, so had to take whatever came up in a 2 week timespan. That's life. Alex
