This XK-120 has been kept exceptionally well since new.  Recent servicing includes all suspension bushings replaced, new front shocks, rebuilt rear lever dampers, new parking brake cable, rebuilt safety gauge, new hoses, new alloy radiator (original radiator included), re-coated Porcelain manifold, chrome trim pieces replated, new batteries, new Pirelli Cinturato tires and a fluid service.

One of the most iconic sports cars of the 1950s, this XK-120 represents the very best in build quality and craftsmanship throughout and would be a welcome addition to any collector or collection. This XK-120 is complete with its owner’s book, original tools, original spare wheel, Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, original literature and a tremendous book of service records dating back to 1960.  With a matching numbers engine and an elegant color combination, this XK-120 is completely dialed-in, fully serviced and ready for immediate enjoyment and is eligible for some of the world’s foremost vintage rallies, including the famed Mille Miglia.
