Dean Edmonds would recount that he had acquired this particular Jaguar in the late 1960s having spied it at Auto-Engineering Inc., the original Lindy Hansen garage in Lexington, Massachusetts where his Mk VII was maintained, and he so loved. From his notes it had been owned by a lady who had not taken particular care of the car and when the clutch failed had left it at the garage. Naturally as with his other Jaguars, the purchase invoice is on file and shows him to have paid $1,500 for it in September 1968.

His acquisition was timed at 16 years after the roadster had originally left the works, having been built on the British 'Guy Fawkes' day, the 5th of November 1952. Dispatched 6 days later, it was supplied straight to the U.S. and distributed through Hoffman of New York. Its Heritage Certificate denotes the same body color tone that the car has been refurbished to, being Birch Grey paintwork, as new those were contrasted with a biscuit and red interior and French Grey top.

In Mr. Edmonds custody the project would languish for some years, first with a restorer in Arizona and then later with noted Jaguar guru Terry Larson in Mesa, Arizona. Then, the chance sighting of another XK120 at a car show and its appeal to his wife reminded Mr. Edmonds that he still had one of these cars himself in storage and inspired him to finally get around to having the car restored. This process began in 1997 and was completed two years later. During the course of the work, the rear part of the chassis legs was found to be badly corroded and was professionally replaced, but in all major other respects the integrity of the car including its matching numbers engine was retained. When finished Mr. and Mrs. Edmonds campaigned the car on the 1999 Red Rock rally in Arizona, using it properly for the first time. This proved to be a major shakedown for the restoration, with patches of terrible rain and a typically precise 5 page 'snag list' was supplied to Mr. Larson!

More than two decades later, the Jaguar still presents extremely well, being a fine testament to the work carried out in its restoration, it is accompanied by many bills for its work and the subsequent maintenance. To a connoisseur such as Edmonds, we are sure that purity of the original lines of the disc wheels and rear spats would have appealed greatly, it would sit in the collection as the match to his Mark VII and he considered the pair of cars as a 'his and hers' set.

Seller's description:

The spectacular 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Birch Grey over a red leather interior and black folding convertible top with matching black side curtains. According to the accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate this example was completed by the Coventry works in November 1952 and was subsequently distributed through Hoffman in New York. In 1968 the XK120 was acquired by collector-owner Prof. Dean Edmonds Jr. through Auto Engineering Inc. of Lexington, Massachusetts. Mr. Edmonds, a Doctoral graduate of MIT and Professor of Physics at Boston University, is credited for his work on developing the cesium atomic clock and today is recognized with his name on the Wall of Honor in the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. A respected automotive collector and connoisseur in his own wright, his personal collection included several notable Jaguars and even a Bugatti Type 55 Super Sport! The XK120 remained in Edmonds private collection for more than 50 years! During his five decade long tenure as owner, a no-expense spared restoration was performed by Jaguar specialist Terry Larson of Mesa, Arizona. Over 2,000 man hours was invested and accompanying invoices total over $150,000! Mr. Edmonds subsequently participated in the coveted Red Rock Rally in Arizona with the XK120 and afterwards the Jaguar remained one of his most prized classic motorcars! Today the XK120 presents in spectacular restored condition and would be ideal example to use either for show or to participate in another vintage rally or tour. An incredible assortment of documentation is included with this Jaguar, including the owner’s handbook, service manual, spare parts manual, the original 1968 invoice from Auto Engineering, records dating back more than 50 years, correspondence letters and more. Simply put this is one of the best examples to be found on the market today with incredible long-term collector ownership provenance. We are proud to offer this exceptional 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates spectacular condition and ownership provenance.

please take a note ( it means don't forget ) that the hub caps must not be fully chrome , but partially body color painted . Famous experts of 2000 man hours seem to forget something . . . ..
