  • 67832 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Paris event, 6 February 2019. Estimate:100.000 - 130.000 Prepared to fast road specification with C-Type cylinder headEligible for numerous national and international eventsRetains its original engine block and body When the Jaguar XK 120 was launched in 1948, it caused a sensation. Jaguars first post-war sports car was beautiful, relatively affordable and staggeringly fast. Demand soon outstripped the initial limited production plan, and Jaguar switched to steel bodies as production numbers increased. The cars 3,442-cc engine would remain a staple of Jaguar engine design even through to the 1980s. This car, chassis S674489, was delivered in left-hand-drive configuration to the U.S. via Jaguars New York distributor, Charles Hornberg, in the highly attractive colour scheme of Lavender Grey over red. By the 1990s the car had returned to Europe and was fully restored in Sweden; at this time the current colour combination of light metallic blue over dark red leather was applied. The car has been well restored to fast road specification with an original XK 140 high-compression C-Type cylinder head, five-speed gearbox and aero screens. Importantly, this XK 120 retains its matching engine block and body. Following the restoration, this XK 120 featured in a magazine article in the Swedish classic motoring magazine Nostalgia whilst in the ownership of Mr Helenius.The XK 120 remains a superb sports car to this day and, more importantly, highly usable and eligible in a whole host of interesting events, this example being no exception to this and very well prepared.
