Footnotes

  • The Jaguar XK120 was a revolutionary car not just for Jaguar but also post war sports cars, with its advanced twin cam engine and torsion bar front suspension that gave the car unrivalled performance. This 1952 car is an example that is well worth restoring from a financial and ownership perspective, and could prove satisfying in both regards. The car has a gearbox and rear-axle, also benefiting from a healthy spare parts supply from Jaguar specialists, with many components being remanufactured.

    The car was previously the property of a racing driver who had his own in-house mechanic that looked after the car for many years. The car appears very complete and is a matching numbers vehicle, retaining its original cylinder head and block. Whilst in need of restoration, the body, which bears the number E 5070, shows to be in very good shape and has been recently repainted. The interior also appears to be in good condition, with the black vinyl seats appearing complete and usable (and with the black carpet still in place). The dashboard and instruments are also largely complete and are in a restorable condition. The mileage shows only 20,460 miles which is very low for a car of this age. Originally a US specification car, it is believed that it was dispatched to the USA in October 1952 where it was kept in a much dryer climate compared to the that of the UK, where it has recently been repatriated. This is an excellent opportunity to own a much sought after classic Jaguar sports car with great potential.
