This 1952 Jaguar XK120 is a left-hand-drive roadster that was built on September 15, 1952, and dispatched to Los Angeles, California distributor Charles Hornburg. The car reportedly remained in California before being acquired by the selling dealer in the Netherlands in 2018. It is said to have been repainted in metallic bronze over a reupholstered black leather interior in the 1960s. Power is provided by a 3.4-liter DOHC inline-six paired with a four-speed manual gearbox, and work performed in 1997 is said to have included rebuilds of the cylinder head and carburetors. This XK120 is now offered by the selling dealer in the Netherlands with service records, a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, rebuild documentation, awards, service manuals, and Dutch registration.
Originally finished in Pastel Green, the body was reportedly repainted metallic bronze in 1969. The finish is shown up close in the photo gallery below along with detailed images of the headlights, taillights, trim, black tonneau cover, the side curtains, and the removed canvas top.
Body-color 16” steel wheels wear polished and painted hubcaps and Firestone Cavallino Sport 200 tires. The selling dealer states that the front end has been rebuilt and powder coated and that the front brakes have been replaced.
The original Suede Green interior was reupholstered in black with replacement leather seat covers and matching door panels and carpets. Features include a four-spoke steering wheel, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, and a polished passenger grab bar. The pedal box was reportedly modified to provide additional legroom.
Instrumentation consists of a reverse-sweep 6k-rpm tachometer, a 140-mph speedometer, an analog clock, an ammeter, and combination gauges for fuel and oil level, and water temperature and oil pressure. The five-digit odometer is believed to have rolled over and now shows 17k miles. True mileage is unknown.
The 3.4-liter DOHC inline-six is equipped with dual SU carburetors and routes power to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. The carburetors and replacement cylinder head were reportedly rebuilt in 1997, and a 2018 service at Avelingen Restorations in Gorinchem, the Netherlands is said to have included an oil change and an inspection.
Engine block stamping W5965-8 matches the engine number listed on the chassis plate and on the Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate.
The Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate shows the engine and chassis numbers and a September 15, 1952, date of manufacture.
Photo documentation of the previous refurbishment, along with awards, service records, service manuals, and newspaper clippings, are included in the sale.
