The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview
One of the most iconic sports cars in automotive history, the Jaguar XK120, began as a streamlined stop gap design built to highlight Jaguar’s new twin-cam six-cylinder engine. When it debuted at the 1948 London Motor Show it was considered an immediate success. With a reported top speed of 120 mph and an elegant sleek design, demand for Jaguar’s new automobile soared and the XK120, Jaguar’s first post-war sports car, was officially born. This XK120 is an excellent, numbers matching example of Jaguar’s legendary sports car and is proudly offered for sale at the New England Auto Auction.
1952 Jaguar XK120, chassis # 670820, is an excellent example of a numbers matching vehicle that has undergone a complete top-quality restoration. The exterior red finish highlights the classic curves of Jaguar design brilliantly. On the interior, the biscuit-colored upholstery compliments the exterior color and highlights the design of the cockpit exceptionally well. Under the rear deck lid, the trunk upholstery is in the same condition as the interior. Both the exterior and interior features of this car are considered by the consignor to be in excellent condition. According to the odometer, this XK120 has been driven just 213 miles since the restoration was completed. An older restoration, this Jaguar has always been well maintained and cared for as its condition validates. Quality is evident when inspecting this vehicle and folder or restoration receipts and notes is included in the sale.
Under the bonnet, this XK120 is powered by its numbers matching, 3.4L twin-cam six-cylinder engine paired to a four-speed manual gearbox and according to the consignor this Jaguar runs, drives, and operates exactly as it should. Numbers matching XK120’s restored to this caliber are not often found. Photographs of the matching engine numbers can be provided on request and this vehicle is currently available for viewing, prior to the auction, at the Owls Head Transportation Museum. Vehicle is sold with a title.
