1952 Jaguar XK120

Story and History

1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster - completely rebuilt

An absolutely stunning job has been carried out on this wonderful XK

Very many clever features help to make her far more enjoyable, usable and comfortable than had she been rebuilt to standard specification

Made primarily for quick road use she is, as you would expect, a sparkling performer with a simply wonderful exhaust note, popping and crackling away

Her four speed gearbox now has an overdrive, her steering box has been replaced with rack and pinion, a large bore radiator with kenlowe fan has been fitted as has a full stainless steel exhaust system, the shock absorbers are telescopic and the brakes are now discs of the type fitted to an XK150

Extra louvres are fitted to the bonnet, as is a lovely leather bonnet strap, bumpers have been deleted as has the normal windscreen, replaced with a pair of correctly fitted aero screens and there is a LeMans filler cap too

Inside the cockpit the seats have been made to C Type specification, there is improved heating, improved lighting and improved drivers legroom, by virtue of the battery being placed, out of harms way, behind the passenger seat

Mechanicals, suspension, brakes, steering and electrics have all been rebuilt and, really this is a truly remarkable car

The previous owner, who bought her in 2002 from the USA, where she was originally supplied (Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms this) kept her as she was until 2010 before embarking on a 2 year project to create this wonderful specimen
