Jaguar XK120 fhc, XK120 dhc, XK140 fhc, XK140 dhc, XK 150 fhc/dhc: The wood sets you see below received a complete strip, repair and re-veneer. With wood of this age,I highly recommend retaining as many of the original parts as possible. A certain amount of hand fitting was involved from car to car, and it is frustrating to find that a newly made set will not necessarily fit properly without modification. That being said, I can and do supply totally new wood sets as well.


Refinishing of a nice original XK 140 dhc wood set. Dated 18th Feb 1955. Some repair to the end panels and veneer chipping was req'd.

Old finish removed, showing remarkable veneer condition:
