Jaguar XK120 Lightweight (1950)

Classic Cars, H&H Classic Auctions Ltd (12th April 2000)

H&H Classic Auctions Ltd, Pavilion Gardens, Buxton

Lot Number 042

Estimate £55000-£60000

Hammer Price £49000

Hammer Price (inc premium) -

Year 1950

Condition rating 1

Registration number MSU 724

Mileage -

Chassis number 670165

Engine number W1117-8

The initial 57 right hand drive cars and 183 left hand drive cars were hand built with a lightweight aluminium alloy.

The car that we offer today is one of those early cars, still with its brass plate on the dashboard, and in its original left hand drive format. It was re-imported from the United States during the late 1980's where it had been extensively restored whilst retaining its original specification. During the last ten years the car has received attention to the coachwork by RS panels and it has had disc brakes and new chrome wire wheels fitted to the factory specification and the rear axle was changed from an ENV to Salisbury XK120 axle. Over ú20,000 has been spent during this period including regular servicing and maintenance.

Previously owned by Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd fame, this is a very rare and highly desirable car and if you could find another example for sale it would probably not be as good as this one.

PLEASE NOTE: Various spares are with this lot and include: two side screens, an original glass (broken) section, 5 steel wheels & tyres, 4 indicator lights, 1 back axle, 2 rear wheel spats, 4 wheel hubs, a box of assorted brake parts and 2 seats.

This one is the real deal with matching numbers 3.4-liter engine, 4-speed gearbox and chassis. The brakes are upgraded to discs all-around and chrome wire wheels are fitted.

The paint, leather interior and mechanicals are beyond reproach. All the collectible criteria are here; rarity, condition, advanced technology for the period, performance and, really, is there a more beautiful 2-place British sports car?
