Jaguar XK120 Restoration

Lessons Learned by John Gegner

Book Review: Well, every great book deserves a sequel.  I had earlier reviewed “Jaguar XK120 DHC, Installing the Soft Top and Headliner” by John Gegner and Gregg Philbrick and I realized that the soft top installation was only part of the larger question, how do you start on and go about restoring a classic Jaguar without sending the car and large check to a professional restorer?  Well the answer to my question was delivered by John in this more substantial, equally well written, story in 124 pages with 135 photos.

The author states the book “is not a substitute for already published restoration books”, but I cannot imagine embarking on a classic car restoration without this book as a guide to what is a large home garage project.  The book provides a rationale for the overall structure for a restoration project, how to sequence and manage the project and guidance on identifying the critical path to avoid rework or long periods of downtime.   Preparing your workspace for the project and guidance on make versus buy are some of the great collection of common-sense hints and guidance provided by the work.


After setting the stage with the history of John’s XK120 and workspace preparation, the book walks through each of the major stages and for each stage provides the cost of key parts and labor.  Each section is followed by lesson learned, hints and tips, references to more detailed technical publications, all accompanied by illustrative color photos.


The book provides easy reading with an efficient use of words and I found it to be quite a page-turner during my review.   Although the book describes John’s adventure restoring his XK120, it provides a great basis for any classic Jaguar restoration as the project structure and many of lessons learnt and references are not XK120 specific.   A great addition to any respectable Jaguar library at the cost of $68 including shipping in the U.S
