For sale in our Atlanta showroom is a 1937 Austin Boattail Speedster Prototype. Founded by Herbert Austin in 1905, the Austin Motor Company would create models that would influence large automotive manufacturers for years to come. During the great depression, many auto makers restructured, including Austin Motor Company. A year before reorganizing and becoming American Bantam, Austin would produce one it's most rare and highly desirable prototypes ever, the Austin Boat Tail Speedster. With only six ever produced, this 1937 Austin Boat Tail Prototype for sale doesn't get much rarer. With over 2,000 man hours put into the restoration of this particular Austin, this Boat Tail for sale is simply one of a kind. The exterior is a real looker, in a gorgeous coat of Green paint. Complimented by Yellow painted steel wheels adorned with polished hubcaps and wrapped in wide whitewall tires, this 1937 Austin for sale will catch eyes and turn heads. Add in the gorgeous polished and chrome accents and you'll find yourself with a high appreciation for the painstaking time spent in researching and restoring this ultra rare piece of history. The interior is just as sharp, with a Black vinyl bench seat. Throw in a simplistic dash and a manual shifter and you have an easygoing and functional interior. The Boat Tail Austin for sale comes to life thanks to a tiny inline 4-cylinder engine. Backed by a manual transmission, this Boattail Speedster is the true definition of an oversized go-kart.

HIGH VALUE VEHICLES

1954 Jaguar XK120

1954 Jaguar XK120


Engine: 3.4L Inline 6
Transmission: 5 Speed Manual
Mileage: 63092 ( undocumented )

With a professional restoration meticulously finished in 2012, this 1954 Jaguar XK120 Drop Head convertible is truly a sight to behold. The XK120 was the fastest production car of its day and was a strong competitor on race day winning a few 24-hour endurance races including Mt. Druitt in Australia back in 1954. The “120” represented the top speed right from the factory. This XK120 is in excellent shape and has had a few minor upgrades bringing it up to date and making it an excellent driver’s car including converting the electrical system to 12 volt from 6 volt, an electronic ignition, electric fan for optimal cooling, and a tremec 5-speed manual transmission adding synchros in all gears and an overdrive gear. These upgrades do not take away from the original looks of the car but increase the drivability dramatically. Redone just this last year in 2017 included the top end of the engine rebuilt with new valve seats for pump gas, rebuilt SU carburetors, rebuilt brake cylinders on all corners, new plugs and wires installed, and in 2018 the interior was reupholstered, and the paint was ceramic coated for ease of cleaning. This Jaguar is a stunning car both to drive and admire and would make the perfect addition to a collection or dream car for a Jaguar enthusiast. This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom. You can view this 1954 Jaguar XK120 in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle or have more questions regarding it please call us at (303) 872-4722 or email us at Denver@gatewayclassiccars.com.
