Meticulous, multi-thousand hour restoration on a documented original car. Restoration was chronicled in the JCNA magazine. Fully sorted, "on the button" performer that not only looks the part but drives like a proper Jaguar XK should. Since restoration it has been enjoyed for 5,000 miles insuring the next owner will have none of the "teething issues" that tend to plague lesser restored cars and trailer queens! This 120 pulls strong, has a smooth, quiet gearbox and uncharacteristically strong 2nd gear synchro, brakes straight and true, runs perfectly cool with its currently installed custom aluminum radiator and electric cooling fan (original concours radiator included also), and serenades its pilots with that magnificent ripping silk music only an XK Jag engine can deliver.
An added bonus is that this cat comes with not only its full original weather equipment but also a custom set of Brooklands windscreens on proper body colored aluminum cowlings and a short rear view mirror with cowling. So, if desired, you can change the entire look of the car and recreate "Soapy" Sutton's record-setting 1949 136.596 MPH top speed run with an early XK120 in similar windshield-less trim!
As perhaps the first Supercar of the post-war era, the XK120 will always be one of the most coveted and desired sports cars of all time. They are certainly one of the most beautiful sports cars of all time in all regards, from the stunning polished XK engine; to the Spitfire aircraft inspired dashboard; to their sweeping lines that stop even non-car people dead in their tracks. The best part is they are still incredibly affordable and, if you get a proper one like this example, incredibly fun to drive and fully capable of use on today's highways.
Unlike the commonly available 120's that have a myriad of hidden sins under shiny paint or are incapable of brisk motoring under their own power, this car is one that truly has great integrity and offers all the XK120 legend would suggest.
