The XK120

From its debut. Jaguar's brilliant XK120 forever changed the motoring world. Blessed with sleek body lines. a capable suspension and unprecedented performance. the XK120 was immediately successful on racing circuits and rally stages. Relentless development of the basic XK120 soon yielded the “C” Type of 1951 Le Mans-winning fame.

Production of the XK120 Roadster was supplemented by the Fixed Head Coupe in 1951. with just 2. 80 of these grand touring cars built in all. For buyers seeking greater distinction and performance. the “SE” or Special Equipment moniker provided incredible value. Mechanical upgrades included high-lift camshafts. stiffer valve springs. dual exhaust. and a special crankshaft damper to raise engine output to 180 bhp.


This Car

This original left-hand-drive XK120 SE Fixed Head Coupe was built to an order originating from Los Angeles-based Jaguar distributor Charles Hornburg and completed on October 24. 1952. Issued the export license number MRW 422 by Jaguar at Coventry. this XK120 SE was an original Personal Export Delivery car. with the first owner taking delivery of the car via the JR Inwards Jaguar dealership in Ruislip. Middlesex. Following its arrival in the US. the Jaguar has been a California-based car under its three most recent owners over the past 40 years. according to the consignor.

The known prior owners of the car were Richard Miller and Dale Shoupe. both residents of San Diego. Recently. the XK120 was completely restored by Escondido. California's Dave Flood. who owned it for over a decade. Well known for his exacting restorations of classic Jaguar automobiles and vintage aircraft. Mr. Flood is particularly noted for his handcrafted. made-to-order duophonic guitars. This XK120 SE is no exception to his high standards. with its handsome upholstery. distinctive white steering wheel. beautifully detailed and finished engine bay. and fully restored mechanical systems to match.

All numbers have been confirmed to match the build sheet by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust archives and the car was recently inspected by Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance judge Roy Miller. who specializes in Jaguars and found the car to be correct throughout. Offered complete with a tool roll and further accompanied by a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate. this top-specification XK120 SE Fixed Head Coupe is simply superb.
