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

This righthand drive XK120 Roadster was purchased by the vendor
in 1975 as a project car from a dealer in the Midlands; after about
a year of owning it. he decided to carry out a body-off
restoration. A 3. 8 litre. Jaguar Mk. II in reasonable condition was
purchased as a donor car for the engine. gearbox with overdrive and
the rear axle; all were fitted together with panard rods and radius
arms on the rear axle to stop it moving in any direction. Next. he
found a Jaguar Mk. IX in a local breakers yard which supplied the
Dunlop disc braking system. After restoring the chassis he found a
person who specialised in Jaguar bodywork and a deal was struck
where he paid £100 and when that was used up. he paid another £100
- this worked well to start with but when he got a bill for £600
which he was not expecting . he took the car home and finished it
himself. Not satisfied with the power output from the 3. 8 litre
engine. the vendor managed to find a Jaguar 4. 2 litre unit which
was reputed to have only done 20. 00 miles since a major overhaul -
and this is how we find the car today. This 'fast road' XK120 has
been fully maintained and serviced since the rebuild and is 'on the
button'; it starts easily. runs well and is ready to use. Finished
in British Racing Green with red leather interior and black toneau
cover. it comes supplied with a V5C registration document and some
old MoT test certificates. This is a very reliable. well-built
special and is ready to be appreciated as such.
