This 1954 example of the Jaguar XK120 Roadster is a sports car that enthusiasts can’t miss out. Described as elegant, racy and powerful, this roadster XK120, with the chassis number S673075 had attracted major eyeballs and “orders” when it was introduced on the market in 1954.
During the major restoration work, the bodywork had been replaced with a lightweight, aluminum body (except the doors) along with various reversible modifications to enhance the vehicle’s driveability. Part of the restoration project covered improved cooling system through the addition of an expansion tank and a Kenlow fan, including the installation of new front disc-brakes.
The Jaguar XK120 was initially exported to the US before it was acquired by an owner in England at the start of the 1990s. The restoration work that took place in 1994 included seats replacement and the engine was restored as well, allowing the car to cover less than 2,000 miles.
Accompanied by records of the restoration work and a Jaguar Heritage certificate, this restored XK120 roadster version (estimated between €80,000 and €120,000) is now ready to provide its new owner hours of enjoyment, comfort and advanced driveability.
