    Le 1er Salon de l'après-guerre tenu en Angleterre ouvrit ses portes le 27 octobre 1948.
    Personne n'était préparé au choc que causa la présentation sur le stand Jaguar d'un fin roadster de couleur bronze, l'XK 120.

    William Lyons venait de placer la barre très haut, en ce qui concernait les voitures de sport et de série, 50 ans plus tard, on se retourne toujours sur la ligne superbe du roadster et on écoute avec le même ravissement le feulement du moteur XK, 6 cylindres en ligne, 2 ACT.

    Le roadster entra en production en 1949 et la demande fut instantanée.
    Partout dans le monde, des XK 120 franchirent la ligne d'arrivée les premières.
    Aujourd'hui encore beaucoup de XK 120 participent à des rallyes et procurent beaucoup de plaisir à leurs conducteurs.

    Le modèle présenté est Matching Numbers

    I recently bought a XK 120 FHC, and need an Operating and Maintenance Manual so found a used one on Ebay for not much money. On the third page it had the serial number of 681161, engine, W8315-8, body J3181, gearbox JL1640. So at some point it is long life it belonged with this XK 120, which looks to be in France. It is in a three ring binder, which reads, National Security Agency, Fort George G. Mead, Maryland. So maybe this car lived part of it life in the Washington, DC/Maryland/Virginia USA area. Small world.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    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?
