This car, along with others from the same collection, has been standing for up to 25 years. The vendor's husband died in 1996, and his collection of cars remained mostly unused from that point until I was asked to see them with a view to their sale by auction. They were all stored over that time in a purpose-built building that was heated, and dehumidified, which the deceased gentleman had had constructed solely for the purpose of storing his cars. Having been standing for that period of time, they will require careful re-commissioning and safety checks prior to use by a new owner. However, during our inspection and photography of the vehicles we have found that all are rolling, most have operable handbrakes, and some of the clutches are also operable.
RFJ 702 is believed to have been purchased by the vendor's deceased husband in early 1990. After acquisition, he gave the car to a Jaguar specialist for a service and attention to several aspects. They repositioned the exhaust system, replaced windscreen pillars and hood toggles, made the hood fit, made and fitted side screens, and attended to a number of other items, as listed in their invoice in the history file (inspection recommended). A journal was started for the car in 1992, but only two entries were made. The car has a hood, and side screens.
The deceased owner did not use the XK as much as other cars in his collection, although he attempted to use all his cars at least once a month. However, since he passed away, the vehicle has remained unused and, as noted above, will require careful re-commissioning and safety checks prior to use by a new owner.
It should be noted that the engine number is recorded as W27997 on the V5C and on the chassis plate, but has not yet been verified on the engine itself. The number on the cylinder head is A8746-7.
Documentation includes a current V5C, the aforementioned invoice, and miscellaneous papers.

Car now offered at:
1952 Jaguar XK120
Country United Kingdom, Region West Midlands
From long term ownership and storage an original right hand drive matching numbers XK120. We’ve replaced the radiator and fuel tank to get the car running. Might need paint or not. Might be a great Broadsport candidate for the ultimate XK120. Could be a race car, rally car, Mille Miglia entrant. Perfect canvas to make the XK you want.
