This 1952 Jaguar XK120 is a left-hand drive roadster that was built on November 20, 1952, and sent to Hornburg, Los Angeles for distribution. The car is finished in gray with a black soft top over black and powered by a numbers-matching 3.4-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Features include steel wheels, fender skirts, a split windscreen, fender-mounted side mirrors, and a black tonneau cover. The seller has owned the car since 2001, and work completed in May 2021 included replacing each wheel cylinder, the brake master cylinder, and the brake shoes. This XK120 is offered with removable side windows, assorted spare parts, service records dating back to 1976, a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.
The exterior is finished in gray and equipped with a black tonneau cover, black convertible top, and removable windows. Chrome adorns the grille, light surrounds, windshield trim, and fender-mounted side view mirrors. Features include split front bumpers, rear overriders, interior vent doors in each fender, and rear wheel skirts. The seller notes that the front end of the car was damaged and repaired under previous ownership, and the zipper on the tonneau cover is broken. Various paint, body, and finish imperfections are visible.
Steel 15″ wheels wear polished trim rings and Jaguar-branded hubcaps. Stopping is provided by four-wheel drum brakes that were serviced in May 2021 with a replacement brake master cylinder, wheel cylinders, and brake shoes. Replacement leaf springs have reportedly been installed under current ownership.
The interior features black upholstery on the seats along with a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets. Equipment includes a dash-mounted rearview mirror, passenger grab handle, and lap belts. There is a tear in the driver’s seat.
The four-spoke steering wheel fronts Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 140-mph speedometer, a reverse-sweep 6k-rpm tachometer, an analog clock, and gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, fuel level, and amperage. The five-digit odometer shows 18k miles, and approximately 30k miles have been added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.
The 3.4-liter inline-six features dual SU carburetors, polished valve covers, and was factory rated at 160 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. A stainless steel gas tank and modern starter have been installed, the engine was reportedly rebuilt in the early 2000s, and the electrical system was converted to 12 volts.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission.
A Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate is included with the sale and lists the engine, gearbox, chassis, and body numbers along with a manufacture date of November 20, 1952.
The chassis tag remains fitted and corresponds to the Heritage Trust Certificate information. Engine number W6674-8 listed on the tag matches the stamping on the engine block and cylinder head.
