Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1953 Jaguar XK120 FHC - One of the best.
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
 
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

DARE TO COMPARE!


This concourse 1953 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe is a rolling piece of artwork and excellence is its presence. This car has been professionally restored to high show quality standards throughout and it’s simply one of the best! The Jaguar XK120 is a sports car manufactured by Jaguar between 1948 and 1954. It was Jaguar’s first sports car since SS 100 production ended in 1939. In 1949, the first production car, chassis number 670003, was delivered to Clark Gable. Some would argue this is best looking automobile ever built. A total of 12,056 Jaguar XK120’s were built during the entire production run. Of the 12,056 built, only 2,678 were Fixed Head Coupes (FHC). The Jaguar Heritage Certificate #35562 for this car was issued by JDHT on March 13, 2012 by Chief Archivist- Anders Ditlev Clausager. The certificate documents this car, chassis #680935, was manufactured on March 12th, 1953. The original distributor was Hornburg in Los Angeles, Ca and the first owner was W.E. Sears. This car left the factory with a Dove Grey exterior and Red interior. This is a seldom-seen color combination that is truly stunning in every sense of the word.

This car was purchased from a gentleman who owned the car for over 50 years by well-known Tom Griffith of Madison, WI. Tom Griffith is a collector and restorer of fine motor cars. Tom has sold many vehicles that have set sales records. Tom purchased this car for himself with intentions of keeping it. When Tom found the car there was absolutely no rust anywhere. It was a true time capsule. He spent six years restoring this car methodically. He invested countless hours in research, parts and labor. Absolutely every aspect of this car was done as correctly as possible. Every single nut and bolt was carefully cataloged and then plated back to new condition. Literally thousands of fasteners all went back on the car just as they were taken off. Tom claims to have over $200,000.00 in the total cost which comes as no surprise. The restoration was completed in 2019 and has been driven 400 miles since completion. This car looks runs and drives amazing!

The car retains all the original sheet metal which is unheard of with this generation of Jaguars. During the restoration there were three areas that required minor work so the areas were cut out and repaired. The three pieces of sheet metal were saved and included with the car. The body is extremely straight with precise gap lines throughout. The car was finished in its original color of Dove Grey which is beautiful. The color was computer matched perfectly with the original paint color that was on the car. The original paint was left under the dash, in the door panels and behind the deck lid. The high quality paint job is original single stage and impeccable. The fender skirts add the extra touch and are easily removable. All of the glass is in excellent condition and original with exception of the front windshield. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the trim, seals, wipers, door handles, grill, light bezels, lights, front bumpers and rear bumpers. The hood emblem which is original and not a reproduction. The wheels and trimmed Jaguar hub caps were painted to match the exterior. The wheels are wrapped with new Excelsior Stahl Sport Radial 6.00 R16 tires that have a 4-ply rating.

The luxurious interior was finished in its original red with new Connelly leather. It was restored to the highest level of quality with great craftsmanship throughout. The interior cabin appears small but is actually spacious considering the design. The headliner and upholstery was beautifully restored. It still retains the factory translucent lavender sun visors. The wood veneering on the dash and door panels is a piece of art. The dash mounted rear view mirror and sliding ash tray is so cool.  All of the instruments have been rebuilt and work accurately. The steering wheel is new and the center cap is original. It has two correct batteries behind the seat that retain the original Lucas battery covers. A battery power cut off switch is installed for long term storage. Everything in the interior is in working order such as the wipers, lights, turn signals, horn, gauges, telescopic steering column, emergency brake, etc.

The trunk compartment was finished in its original color paint. It was restored to the highest level of quality. It houses a red trunk mat, painted wheel, spare tire, tool roll and correct Smiths jacking system as it came from the factory. Under the trunk lid was upholstered to match the interior which looks amazing with the attention to detail.

The painted engine compartment was finished in its original color paint. It’s very correct and highly detailed throughout. The factory body tags are located in the correct locations and match the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The wiring harness is new and all the wiring is correct. The windshield wiper motor was rebuilt. The car is powered by the original matching numbers 3.4L DOHC Inline 6 cylinder engine #W7867-8. The engine cylinder head matches #W7867-8 as well. With a high performance, high-strength aluminum alloy cylinder head, hemispherical combustion chambers, inclined valves and twin side-draft SU carburetors, the dual overhead-cam 3.4L straight-6 XK engine was highly advanced for a mass produced unit of the time. The engine was completely rebuilt by well-known PHP Race Engines located in Wauconda, IL. The invoice of the entire engine rebuild is included. The engine was dyno tested for five straight hours to properly break in the engine. The engine rebuild now would allow the car to reach speeds of 135 mph. The original orange ignition coil and condenser that was added at the dealership in 1955 remains in the car today. The dual air cleaner canister is original as well. The correct dual SU fuel pump is being used. This engine starts quickly with a factory automatic choke which works very nicely. The engine runs and performs beautifully. The engine is coupled to a 4-speed manual gearbox which was completely rebuilt.  The clutch and transmission operate excellent.

The undercarriage was correctly restored and highly detailed throughout. This undercarriage would be displayed with mirrors on the field at a Concours show. Everything underneath this car was restored or replaced such as the steering components, braking components and suspension components. It even has the leather wrapped gators. This car is very tight with no rattles. It really handles the road well.

This 1953 Jaguar XK120 FHC is one of the best examples in the world. It has been restored to a much higher level than most Jaguar XK120s. Just look and compare. The difference is as clear as day. Buy the best!

Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
