1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster Chassis no. 661002
Engine no. W5584-7
Cylinder head no. F2726-8
Estimate:
£40,000 - 50,000

Footnotes

This original right-hand drive XK120 has the dashboard plaque, celebrating the model's record speed of 132.6mph achieved on the Jabbeke autoroute in Belgium in May 1949, which was fitted to production cars for some time afterwards. An early example dating from 1951, it retains the disc wheels and rear spats and thus represents the XK120 in its purest form, as first envisaged by its creator, William Lyons.

The car was acquired by the private owner, when living in the USA, circa 2009 and brought by him to the UK. Its previous owner was known to the vendor, who acquired an E-Type at the same time. '661002' had been restored 10-12 years ago while with the previous owner but the vendor, while in USA, had the exterior re-sprayed. The engine was overhauled and new carpets fitted a couple of years ago. Invoices for the most recent work are on file.

The car is finished in Old English White with Burgundy/beige two-tone seats and Burgundy trim and carpets, and comes equipped with map reading light and dashboard-mounted stopwatch, the previous owner having rallied it in Ireland. Other noteworthy features include a leather bonnet strap, wing mirrors, badge bar and auxiliary driving lamps.

'465 YUF' is best described as a good driving car in good overall condition, the body being generally straight with good panel fit, save for some depressions on the driver's door and the rear body shroud by the boot. The paintwork is to a good standard also, as is the brightwork and the interior. The engine sounds healthy, showing good readings of 45lbs/in2 oil pressure at 2,500rpm and 70°C water temperature, although the under-bonnet area would benefit from some detailing. Only sold to make way for another classic, this delightful early XK120 is offered with the aforementioned invoices, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 registration document.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
