What's better than finding a Jaguar XK in a barn? How about finding a whole collection of XKs and hundreds of other classics in a warehouse? This warehouse in North Chicago, IL is loaded with classics and the owner has begun selling off their collection, including their Jags. Find them here on craigslist.
The seller has seven Jaguar XK series cars in varying conditions. They have a '53 XK120 fixed head coupe, '57 Xk140 Roadster, '59 XK150 S Roadster, '60 XK150 drop head, '62 XK-E roadster, '64 XK-E Coupe, 71 XK-E Coupe, as well as two '80s XJS
The majority of the Jaguars have either already gone through full restorations or are in the middle of one. The owner also has some Series II engines and parts that are also available.
This beautiful XK150 S has been fully restored and is a heritage certified car. The seller is offering the cars as a lot, but is willing to sell individually if a serious offer is made. While it is amazing to come across this many Jaguars in one location, we are more excited to find out what else is lurking in that warehouse.
The owner of these cars is selling them through a broker, likely to hide their identity, so it’s hard to connect them all together. However, we are pretty sure all of these came from the same warehouse. Besides the Jaguars, the broker also has a rare 1936 Pierce Arrow 1601 Sedan and a 1972 Reliant Scimitar, both of which are in a warehouse in North Chicago being offered under the same terms.
As you can see there are literally hundreds of cars in and around this building. We don't know who owns this collection, but whoever they are, they have a taste for the rare and unusual. We could be wrong about this warehouse, so if any of you know more about it and its owner, please let us know. We will keep everyone updated on this find as more information comes in.
