A well known car featured prominently in Both Quentin Wilson's "The ultimate Classic car " book & also the tome:"Jaguar XK120 in Detail". This car left the factory in November of 1953 in the current form we find it in today of right hand drive with British racing Green exterior & suede green interior; the supplying dealer being Thompson of Hull.
A major restoration was undertaken a few years ago during which time the car was lightly modernized with the fitment of a 5 speed gear box to replace the original Moss box which also comes with the car. The engine number is H8271 & is rebuilt by Tim waddington. It is the actual engine that was raced in XK120 JWK651 & is fitted with a stainless steel free flowing exhaust. The results give us a car to fast road spec with the kind of refinements that make for a wonderful driving experience. The brakes are disc units from Cooper-craft making for very powerful retardation from speed.
The cars paintwork is in very fine order as it the interior which displays a very light patina of use. The woodwork is in excellent condition throughout as are the pale green carpets that compliment the green upholstery. The car sits on four painted wire wheels shod with good Avon Turbosteel tyres. The spare wheel is found in the boot along with a tool roll in its leather roll up covering.
The car drives beautifully with a crisp powerful engine. fine handling & modern feeling brakes. It benefits from being the book car in two major publications & is absolutely ready to be used. These 120 fixed heads have a beautiful tear drop shape to them & become more collectable with every year that passes.
