- XK 120
More about this car...
We at Dorset Jaguar and Sports cars are very proud to offer for sale this magnificent Jaguar XK120 DHC SE. 'FAS161' was registered new exactly one month after Her Majesty's Coronation and therefore shares it's 60th birthday with the Queen's Jubilee. Supplied new by renowned Jaguar concessionaire for the USA Charles Hornburg of Los Angeles to a Mr Allan H Buck from Oklahoma City, this is chassis number S677590, the 590th to leave the factory and 590 of only 1472 left hand driver XK120 DHC's to be produced, this being a very special SE model with extra features including knock-off wire wheels, twin exhaust pipes, high lift camshafts, stiffer front torsion bars and fog lamps. Imported to the UK in 2002 and on it's arrival into the UK she recevied a ground-up restoration in the hands of a well known Jaguar expert Robert Taylor, instructed by it's new multi-millionaire businessman owner who produced and had the car restored as a 50th birthday present to himself. However, due to business and family commitments less than 250 miles were ever driven between 2002 and now enabling the car to remain in completely restored condition. The underneath is as perfect as it appears on top and the interior is as near to perfect as we have ever seen on a XK120. Many essential upgrades were carried out on the car including a 5 speed Getrag gearbox, E Type 3 Pot front brake callipers with disc brakes and electric battery isolator switch. Finished in gleaming Jaguar Red with Ivory Hide interior, we present this matching chassis numbers car with the current V5 document stating one owner since importation in 2002 and Jaguar Heritage certificate. The Jaguar XK120 was launched in Roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a test bed for the new Jaguar XK Engine. The display model was the first prototype chassis S670001. The Roadster caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar boss William Lyons to put it into production. The first production Roadster chassis S670003 was delivered to Clark Gable. The '120' name referred to its 120mph top speed limit which made it the world's fastest production line car at that time.
