The Jaguar XK

Our Jaguar XK120 Roadster
This left-hand drive Jaguar XK120 Roadster was delivered to the USA in May 1952 finished in silver with red interior, the same color combination it has today. In 2014 the car was imported into the UK and has formed part of his ‘Springbourne Collection’, which features a British car from every decade, this XK120 representing the 1950s.
In 2014, this Jaguar XK120 Roadster was treated to a full restoration, including a total engine rebuild, by a retired Classic Motor Cars employee. All bodywork and paintwork refurbishment was done by Brookfield Classics and Classic Motor Cars. In essence, this car has been restored by some of the best Jaguar specialists in the Midlands where it originated. The only concessions to modern-day convenience are a Cosworth five-speed gearbox, extended pedal box for taller drivers, bonnet louvres to assist engine cooling, disc brakes to the front, a non-standard steering wheel, and bucket seats.
The XK was specified to be a practical and fast classic road car. It has been used once at the Shelsley Walsh hill climb but has largely been cosseted as part of the private Springbourne Collection; indeed, only some 1,000 ‘shakedown’ kilometres have been covered since the restoration’s completion in 2014. Offered with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate and Dutch registration document, the car comes with an unused red tonneau (matching the hood cover), a jack, and a spare spoked wheel.
