Car offered at:
jagxk.com/cars-for-sale/category/jaguar-xk120-ots-rhd-1951-race-car-for-sale.htm ...

Sellers description:
Jaguar XK120 OTS RHD 1951 - Race Car - for sale

Chassis Number: 660469

This Jaguar XK120 OTS has been built as a modified race car to compete in the JEC XK Challenge. It is one of six original Tester built cars and was once owned by Henry Pearman or Eagle E-Types so as such comes with fine racing pedigree.

This car is a well presented and smart original right hand drive car. The body is all aluminium and much attention has been paid elsewhere to ensuring the car is as light as possible. The engine is a 3.8 XK unit with the triple carburetor setup as per the XK150 S and was rebuilt by respected racing specialists CKL Developments. This is mated to an E-Type four speed gearbox and a limited slip differential (LSD). The engine and gearbox are mounted further back and lower than on a standard XK120 to improve weight distribution.

Currently this XK could be entered into the JEC XK Challenge or similar series or could easily have the period bucket seat refitted (supplied with the car) and be used as a fast road car. The car comes with an extensive history file and many receipts for the work carried out over the years.
£120,000

Car to be at auction 7/17:
www.silverstoneauctions.com/1951-jaguar-xk120-roadster-10110

Auction description:
Lot No.: 737
Registration: TSK 235
Chassis Number: 660469
Engine Number: ZB50558-8
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 3800cc
Year of Manufacture: 1951
Estimate (£): 90,000 - 110,000

When Jaguar resumed car production in 1945, it dropped its pre-war sports car line to concentrate on saloon manufacture, however, at the 1948 Motor Show the firm astonished the public by announcing a new two-seater roadster; the XK120, with the name reflecting its top speed. It heralded the arrival of Jaguar's famous 3.4-litre twin overhead camshaft XK engine, intended for the Mk. VII saloon, then two years away. Its chassis was essentially a shortened version of the, simultaneously announced, Mk. V saloon, with torsion bar independent suspension and its comfort and road holding set new standards for British sports cars.

In May 1949, on the Jabbeke to Aeltre autoroute, a model with its hood and side screens in place recorded a speed of 126mph and no less than 132mph with the hood and windscreen detached and an undertray fitted. The car was in almost instant demand and it caught Jaguar by surprise. The first 240 examples retained coach-built aluminium bodies before pressed steel, which was less labour-intensive, took over.

This 1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster was sold by the Paragon Motor Company of Oldham to a Mr A.T.G. Edwards on 8th January 1951. The original colour was Bronze with a biscuit interior. Little is known of its history until February 1992 when it was purchased by the last registered keeper from Jim Tester, who had restored the car with his legendary suspension and chassis modifications. It then passed through Henry Pearman of Eagle E-Types, who actually raced TSK 235 at the 50th Anniversary XK celebration in 2009. It was acquired by our vendor in 2012 and he has maintained the car to the very highest standards.

The specification of this 120 is simply incredible. 1 of only 6 believed to have been built, it features an all-alloy body by Bob Smith of R.S. Panels, the aforementioned Jim Tester chassis utilising a six-point, rose jointed rear axle location, rack and pinion steering, 4-pot calipers with vented front discs, a 3.8 litre engine located 6" lower in the chassis frame, big valve cylinder head and triple SU carbs on an E-Type manifold. In addition, "the brakes feature a separate competition pedal box with fully adjustable, twin master cylinders, giving ample leg room for people over 6 feet!"

This specification simply gives the best of both worlds being built as a docile and flexible road car, comfortable for long distance touring yet very competitive on a race circuit if desired. The current UK V5C states the vehicle has had seven former keepers and the history file contains four previous MoT certificates dating back to 1998.

The current owner has campaigned TSK 235 and has had great pleasure in doing so. The car has been almost exclusively maintained by one of the best in the business, CKL Historic Cars & Racing, and there are a vast number of bills in a very detailed history file. Other notable specialists that feature over the years include Racing Green Cars, Sigma Engineering and RS Panels.

If one wanted to build a car to this specification today it would certainly cost over £175,000. We are delighted to offer this stunning XK120 to the open market and encourage prospective bidders to contact the office for further details on what is, without question, a very special Jaguar.

Car now offered at:
hexagonclassics.com/cars/jaguar-xk120-ots-race-car-1951-2/

Seller's description:
JAGUAR XK120 OTS RACE CAR, 1951
CHASSIS NUMBER: 660469
METALLIC BLUE WITH RED LEATHER INTERIOR
CHASSIS 1E 11108, JHT CERTIFICATE NUMBER 44768

The XK 120 was built with racing in mind and the car on offer today here at Hexagon has embraced this philosophy like few others. Chassis number 660469 left the factory in 1951 and has been meticulously maintained it's entire life. During the cars life it was rebuilt with the much of the work being carried out Jim Tester and Bob Smith of RS Panels. It is one of only six cars built to this specification. Over the last decade, it has been a regular competitor in a vast amount of historic motorsport events with fantastic success and is a well-known car to this day.

The specification on the car is incredibly extensive. The engine is a fully raced tuned 3.8 litre straight six from a MK10. It runs of Mk10 carburettors with E-Type inlet manifolds. This was done as to lower the height of the dashpots. The cam shafts, in order to optimise performance, are from a series 3 XJ6 and help to create a lovely power curve. The car also features and fully stainless-steel exhaust system that it mated to the engine via MK10 exhaust manifolds. In order to compensate for the increased performance provided by the race tuned engine, the car features disc brakes on all four corners. The fronts are four pot vented discs and the rears are from a late XJ6. All four callipers use Mintex competition pads. The suspension is also uprated and race prepared. The gearbox is 4-speed, complete synchromesh gearbox with overdrive.

The car was recently used by Hexagon Classics in the XK70 hill climb at Shelsey Walsh where the car came second driven by Peter Smith. This exceptional Xk120 OTS would make the perfect club racing car or fast road car for the discerning enthusiast looking for a way into classic motorsport and for a car that can be used and enjoyed on a regular basis.
