After emerging from over five decades of single ownership, it was subjected to a full body-off restoration by John Pollock Restorations of Reseda, California. There, the car was restored in its stunning original colours and received several factory upgrades, including a five-speed gearbox, front disc brakes, a lightened flywheel, and an aluminium radiator for greater performance and drivability in modern traffic. Following the completion of the restoration, it won Best Jaguar at the Beverly Hills Concours dElegance prior to being exported to the UK in 2014.

Considered by many to be one of Jaguars most spectacular designs, this examples colour scheme showcases the XK 120s curves beautifully, and considering its modern upgrades, it would be a spectacular drivers example.
