This is a very rare original right hand drive 1954 Jaguar XK120 Drophead Coupe which is probably one of the most desirable cars to leave the Jaguar factory but in any event they were certainly a veritable milestone in motoring history.
This is a superb award winning example that has been entered from a private collection where it has been since the mid eighties and over the years the car has won many awards including a third place a couple of years ago at the Jaguar XK day and then only by point one of a point.
Restored a long time ago the bodywork is finished in one of Jaguar's best colours with a matching leather interior trim and a black hood. All the interior woodwork is excellent and the car benefits from having the more desirable wire wheels fitted and of course it comes with the superb 3442cc six cylinder engine, the manual four speed gearbox, a lovely history file and the mileage is believed to be genuine from new.
All in all this car must be one of the very best available and don't forget it is an original right hand drive UK car and one of the very best.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
