When Jaguar resumed car production in 1945. it dropped its
pre-war sportscar line to concentrate on saloon manufacture. But at
the 1948 Motor Show. the firm astonished the public by announcing a
new two-seater roadster; the XK120. with the name reflecting its
top speed. It heralded the arrival of Jaguar's famous 3. 4-litre
twin overhead camshaft XK engine. intended for the Mk. VII saloon. br/>then two years away. The car was in instant demand which caught
Jaguar a little by surprise. The open two-seater model was joined
by a fixedhead coupé version in 1951 and a drophead coupé followed
in 1953. The 120 lasted until 1954 before making way for its XK140
successor. It was to prove the most popular of the series with
12. 61 examples built; of these. only 295 were righthand drive
drophead coupés like the car offered here.

This genuine UK registered Jaguar XK120 was originally supplied
by Henley's in Manchester on 17th August 1954 and has been owned
by the current vendor for the last 27 years. After regular use
under his stewardship. he took the car off the road in 2001 and has
had her dry stored ever since. The original colour was suede green
and at some stage she was painted red; in 1987 a colour change was
recorded with the DVLA to Cotswold blue and this is how she still
presents today. Clearly some restoration work has been carried out
although. unfortunately. it is not known when or by whom. Our
inspection confirmed this XK120 to be an ideal vehicle for further
investment as it is a matching numbers example and still bearing
the original registration number. The bodywork appears to be very
good with little or no signs of corrosion; the hood is aged but in
very good order and the interior trim very presentable and
perfectly useable. Mechanically she has not been run for a number
of years although the vendor did say she drove exceedingly well
prior to going into hibernation. with no worrying noises and with
good oil pressure. Supplied with a V5 registration document. a
Heritage Certificate and some invoices and bills dating back to
1993. some light and sympathetic re-commissioning is required;
however. taking into account the rarity of such cars. this is an
outstanding opportunity to own a highly sought after. unmolested
Jaguar.
