Gallery Junction is excited to offer this very compelling vehicle. The 1950 Jaguar XK120 Roadster. Believed to be one of the earliest steel body 1950 XK120 in the United States. Reportedly just the 22nd or so example imported to the US in 1950.

The impossibly curvy, almost feline-looking bodywork was fresh and exciting for the public, which hadn't seen a new car in years. Equally exciting was what was under the hood. In fact, the XK120 was originally meant as just an attention-grabbing show car to draw attention to the new XK engine, and it was only after the sensational demand for the car following Earls Court Motor Show, the first held since the end of WWII, that Jaguar put the car into production.

The 3.4-liter XK straight-six that debuted in the XK120 and the Jaguar Mark V featured double overhead camshafts driven by chains, hemispherical combustion chambers, a cast iron crankcase, and an aluminum cylinder head. In its initial form, the XK made 160 horsepower and propelled Jaguar's two-seater to a top speed of over 120 miles per hour, hence the name. It doesn't sound like much today, but that was a blistering pace for the late 1940s. The XK120 was the world's fastest production car when it was launched, and Cadillac's 331 V-8 needed an extra two liters of displacement to make the same amount of power as the Jaguar six.

In various forms, the XK engine went on to win Le Mans five times.

The car offered here was restored by experts, Bassett Restorations of Boston, MA several years ago to exacting standards and the car has aged very well. The car exhibits all original seems, weld, panels, and stampings throughout. Its data plate and JDHT Heritage Certificate confirm it to be numbers matching. It comes with several awards from various concours and JCNA judged events, as well as the scoring sheets from said JCNA events. The closer one looks at this car the more obvious it becomes how well cared for it has been its entire life. The car runs and drives exactly as it should. It was the cover car for special interest auto's and had a very lovely article written about it. It comes from very long term Southern California ownership and was last shown at a JCNA event in about 2008. No longer quite the show car she once was, it represents a perfect opportunity to bring her back to that level as a XK120 this important is rarely seen.
