Now here's something to get the hearts of classic Jaguar enthusiasts pumping - a 'barn find' XK120 that's being offered at No Reserve! This apparently complete and largely sound-looking time warp example has been in its current ownership since 1972, and in storage for all but two of the intervening years. Originally registered 'SUB 999', the Jaguar was supplied new to Farnley Hall, North Yorkshire via Appleyards of Leeds. It was delivered complete with C-Type cylinder head, twin SU HS8 sandcast carburettors and a close ratio gearbox, and the sale includes a 1972 letter from Jaguar Cars confirming 'fitment of high compression head when new'. One of only 35 righthand drive XK120s built to SE specification, its chassis number includes the relevant 'S' suffix and prefix. Finished in Dark Green and trimmed Pale Green hide matched to similarly coloured carpets, '245 JFJ' had had just three keepers to date, and currently displays a mere 18,237 unwarranted but eminently feasible miles from new. It was apparently stored with oil in the bores, so the engine still turns freely. Evident extras include a pair of auxiliary driving lights, wing-mounted radio aerial, chrome luggage rack and GB plate. An amazing opportunity.
