Sellers description:
Jaguar XK120 Aluminium 1950 LHD

This Jaguar XK120 Roadster with chassis number 670163 is one of the very first 240 examples constructed in aluminium.

Sold new in 1950 to Mr. Miguel Gomes through Jaguar dealer Auto Omnia in Porto - Portugal.

The original, very stylish colour-combination, was metallic pastel blue with duo-tone blue leather interior and fawn hood.

Until I very recently could buy this Jaguar XK120, this early aluminium roadster has always stayed in Porto area with most of the history known.

The very charming photo taken on the 27-th September 1951 shows this magnificent roadster ready to leave the wedding party of Mr. Miguel Gomes (which we see from 3/4 back wearing a light coloured jacket and sun-glasses) with his newly wedded wife...! (Ohlala, wouldn?t you have loved been invited too to that party?)

In the early eighties this XK120 re-surfaces in the Porto Jaguar garage Osorio & Trinidade completely restored in British Racing Green and... modified into a DHC!

Luckily the typical Roadster V shaped-windscreen has been preserved during this operation, which, although cleverly executed, also consisted in raising the height of the doors and modifying the space behind the front seats in order to accept the folding hood-frame...!

In my 25 years carreer of classic car specialist and restorer I have seen all sorts of weird adaptations executed on some of our beloved classic cars. This DHC modification on a valuable early XK120 Aluminium Roadster is certainly a significant one!

All this is rather amusing but luckily it is no problem for us to bring this XK120 Aluminium back to the pure lines she came out with of the Coventry factory and which are, as you certainly will agree, of a timeless beauty.

The XK120 general structure is, thanks to the warm Portugese climate, still excellent. The numbers are matching. All the documents are there.

An exciting project with lots of potential!

Description from above seller:
Manufactured in March 1950, the final month of production before Jaguar changed the construction method to steel in order to keep up with the amount of extra orders placed. 670163 was one of only two left hand drive cars delivered new via Auto Omnia to Portugal. The first owner Signor 'Nuno Corte-Real was studying in London at the time he saw it on the stand at the '48 Motor Show and managed to get himself onto the order list.

Having spent most of its life in the dry surroundings of Portugal, 670163 was brought back to the UK by the present owner several years ago. He entrusted early on the services of the renowned Jaguar specialists CMC Restorations who carried out an incredible restoration. Great care and attention to detail was taken across the whole car with no expense spared. It is currently fitted with a very comfortable pair of period bucket type seats though the original re-trimmed seats accompany the car as well. Finished in the original livery of Pastel blue the result is quite stunning and shows just how 'right' they got it back in the day. An ideal and eligible entrant for a whole host of rallies such as the Mille Miglia, 6701163 still has an abundance of beauty and performance, good value too!

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?
