Footnotes

  • Its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate reveals that this stunning, matching-numbers XK120 Roadster was completed on 26th August 1952 and despatched seven days later to Jaguar's East Coast USA distributor, Max Hoffman of New York. The car left Jaguar's Brown's Lane factory finished in Gunmetal with matching soft-top and red interior trim. Little more is known of the car's history in the USA other than the fact that it was painstakingly restored by a previous owner some 20-or-so years ago. Some measure of the restoration's quality may be gained from the fact that this XK120 subsequently won several prestigious concours awards nationally including Junior and Senior awards at the AACA (Antique Automobile Club of America) fall meeting at Hershey, Pennsylvania. Quite by chance, the pre-restoration owner saw his old XK at the Hershey meeting and was able to buy the car back from the custodian that had restored it. Lovingly cared for by the second-time-around owner, the Jaguar later found its way to the UK where it was registered in 2011 as '127 YUH'.

    Acquired by the current vendors in 2011, the car has been serviced regularly by recognised specialists Prestige Garage in Vence on the Côte d'Azur where it is presently being prepared for sale. Since its acquisition by the vendors, the car has been fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox, replacing the original four-speed unit.

    This XK120 was a class winner at the Monte Carlo Motor Legend Concours d'Élégance; came third in the Concours d'Élégance at the Paris-Deauville Rally; and was a class winner at the Paris-Côte d'Azur Rally Concours d'Élégance. Currently registered in France, this beautiful XK120 comes complete with its operation and maintenance handbook; service manual; jack; and sundry service invoices.
