1951 Jaguar XK120 OTS Roadster

This original early right hand drive Jaguar XK120 roadster with chrome sidelights and no side vents, was originally supplied by Henley's to its original owner a Mr Oswald Salvador with a registration MGT 883. The Jaguar was purchased in the summer of 1969 by the previous owner who at the tender age of 19 paid £190 for it. In the intervening 49 years the XK has been used in competition like the Wiscombe Hillclimb with the Aston Martin Owners Club, touring with the Jaguar Owners Club and classic rallies. In 2010 the XK was the subject of a body off restoration, the chassis was galvanized, the rear springs were replaced with nine leaf alpine springs, a thicker anti-roll bar and Mk. II steering bushes were fitted, the rear axle was replaced with a Salisbury axle disc brakes were fitted all round and 16-inch 54 spoke wire wheels fitted. The original 3.4 litre engine block has been bored out to 3.8 litre with 9:1 compression ratio pistons. The head is a later type which has been straight ported and gas flowed, fitted with high lift camshafts and lead free valves and seats (the original stud less head comes with the car), the carburation is uprated with two inch SU's carburettors. The body was stripped to bare metal and all necessary repairs were carried out before a full respray in the original colour of bronze. The interior has been re-trimmed in two-tone tan leather with matching carpets and the steering wheel is a smaller diameter leather rimmed example to allow the very tall driver access. This XK 120 is supplied with a V5C registration document, a Heritage certificate and a history file containing receipts, service details, MoT's and photographs of the restoration.

Chassis number two early to have "S" prefix
I have seen the first RHD "S" car 660983 and the first LHD "S" cars and even these cars don't have "S " prefix!
