The Jaguar XK120 was manufactured between 1948 and 1954 and was
their first post-war sportscar; it succeeded the SS100 which ceased
production in 1940. The XK120 was launched in roadster form at the
1948 London Motor Show as a test bed and show car for the new
Jaguar XK engine. It caused a sensation which persuaded William
Lyons to put it into production. The '120' in its name
referred to its 120mph top speed which made it the world's fastest
standard production car at the time of its launch. It was available
in two convertible versions; first as the roadster then also as a
drophead coupé from 1953 and as a closed or fixedhead coupé from
1951. The drophead coupé was a more luxurious model featuring a
beautiful wooden dashboard and wood features on the door interiors
but the roadster was the more popular model with its sporting
lines.

This Jaguar XK120 Roadster is an original lefthand drive American
car supplied new by the Jaguar distributor in Hornburg. Los Angeles
in 1953 and the vendor believes that the car remained in California
when new. Recently imported to the UK from Illinois where it had
been the subject to a cosmetic restoration. it is finished in the
original birch grey with two tone red and tan leather as per the
original build sheet. This XK120 Roadster is supplied with a V5C
registration document. an MoT test certificate which expires in
November 2015. a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and a copy of the US
title. This represents an excellent example which is ready to be
used and enjoyed straightaway.
