Launched at the 1948 London Motor Show. the prototype open two seater caused such a sensation that Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons decided to put the car into production. What followed made automotive history. as the legend of post-war European sports cars exploded throughout the world stage and especially in the U. S. market.  
This very elegant 1950 Jaguar XK 120 Open Two Seater (OTS) is a prime example of the era and is certainly a rare find. The car was originally delivered to U. S. Army Major Alan Fisher. assigned to duty in Dusseldorf. Germany. After he completed his tour. Major Fisher brought his new Jaguar back to the United States and his home in Stockton. California. Each of the previous owners since new have preserved the OTS to the highest standards. The OTS is currently offered by the fifth owner. who has excellently stewarded the car for the past 30 years.
This numbers matching California original Jag has been refreshed in a stunning cream over cream color combination. with maroon piping and maroon soft top and side curtains. It currently presents 52. 61 well cared for miles and runs absolutely fantastic. The car was driven in August from Southern California to Northern California and featured at numerous events held during the week of the Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance.  Additionally. this OTS was ordered with unique chrome options which are not available in the latter 120 models:Chrome plated bolt-on fender mounted side lights (parking lights). Chrome plated passenger grip handle. Chrome plated hood and trunk lid support rod. Chrome plated hood and trunk lid support rod "keeper" clip. Chrome plated seat frames and convertible top support bows. Chrome plated rear window outside frame. Chrome plated carpet hold-down strip. Chrome plated side curtain frames. Chrome plated steering column adjustable flat spring collar. Chrome plated trunk light housing frame. Chrome plated trunk light switch button. mounting plate and lever. Optional chrome plated wheel embellisher "beauty" rims. Even more amazing. the original black phenolic grease gun is present. held by two metal clips attached to the driver's side cowling near the glass brake fluid reservoir. The rear boot compartment not only has the spare tire. jack. flat jack ratchet handle. lug nut socket wrench and spat removal "Tee" tool. but also is found the green cloth tool roll with some rare factory tools like sockets. spanners and adjustable wrench. To go along with these original accessories. the current owner holds the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate which authenticates the originality of this truly surviving California Jag. Finally. owner's manual.  factory technical manual. a tonneau cover. wind deflector wing windows. and a side curtain storage bag will follow the car with purchase.
The opportunity to invest in one of the world's iconic sports cars doesn't happen that often. and the originality of this car ensures its position in a steadily appreciating market. This OTS is available for immediate inspection in the San Diego area. and I highly encourage any interested parties to do so! To experience this classic Jag in person is quite a pleasure. Please enjoy the pictures and feel free to contact Tim at 760/717-3997 if any further information is needed or to make arrangements for inspection. You will be glad you did!
