The Jaguar XK120 was manufactured by Jaguar between 1948 and
1954 and was Jaguar's first post-war sports car. succeeding the SS
100 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 six-cylinder engine. It caused a
sensation. which persuaded William Lyons to put the car into
production and the '120' in its name referred to the 120 mph top
speed which made the XK120 the world's fastest standard production
car at the time of launch. It was available in two roadster
convertible versions; as a drophead coupé from 1953 and as a closed
fixedhead coupé from 1951. The XK120 was aimed primarily at the US
market and the fixedhead coupé was constructed in relatively small
numbers with approximately 2680 units produced (combined left and
right hand drive) compared with approximately 7614 Roadsters.

This Jaguar XK120 was manufactured in 1952 and repatriated into
the UK in 2013. Since then it has undergone a total body-off
restoration and presents in excellent condition. Some sympathetic
modifications have been made. including the fitment of disc brakes
all-round and a 5-speed gearbox. The engine has been rebuilt and
drivetrain is still 'tight' in operation. The black paint finish is
first class as is the leather trim and highly figured wooden
dashboard. We are advised by the vendor that she has done less than
50 miles since completion of the restoration and as such will need
to be treated carefully for the next 1. 00 miles. XK120's are very
handsome vehicles and this splendid Jaguar is a thoroughly useable
example. combining the aesthetics of the original car with some
later mechanical modifications.
