1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster
Chassis Number - 660463
Engine Number - W 2399-8
Gearbox Number - JH 4789
Delivered new to a Dr JM Hendry of Glasgow in January 1951. This original right hand drive XK120 roadster is in extremely fine order throughout, having been subject to a thorough restoration.
Finished in black with biscuit and red leather upholstery and sporting steel wheels and spats.
A very rare and desirable combination in terms of 120 specification.
The restorative work took place over a number of years, and was carried out to a high standard. The owners focus was on originality, therefore this is a matching numbers example and is finished in it's original colour combination.
The only deviations from standard are necessary upgrades for anybody wanting to use their XK120 regularly;
- An electric Kenlowe fan & a much improved cooling system
- Disc brakes (original drum brakes accompany the car)
- Electronic ignition
This is a second time this glorious car has graced our showroom, the gentleman who bought JGA 421 from us in 2016, put the car straight to work by competing in European tours and rallies. During these adventures the car suffered no issues whatsoever and proved to be a perfect companion. For sale now only due to the purchase of a new toy and the desire to take part in more extreme rallies.
With a recent influx of Left hand drive examples coming in from overseas, original right hand drive home market cars are now more difficult to come across. This lovely example promises to provide many years of enjoyment, ready to go supplied with a healthy service file, Jaguar heritage certificate and car cover.
