1964 Jaguar XK120 Roadster Evocation

Description

It was at the 1948 London Motor Show that Jaguar virtually threw the sports car world into turmoil with its stunning XK120. Here was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis and a remarkably low price – a quarter that of a V12 Ferrari with similar performance. The combination was unbeatable and without doubt the XK120 was an absolute milestone for both Jaguar and the motor industry as a whole. XK120 orders flooded in, ironic as it was designed as an interim model to publicise the XK engine for the new Mk VII saloon – Jaguar had only planned to produce around 200!

Built in period on a 1964 S-Type chassis, this unique example is eligible for a number of historic events. The car is furnished with mostly genuine XK120 parts and would cost a fortune to replicate today. To name a few, this includes its windscreen, front and rear bumpers, lights and dashboard dials.

In terms of appearance the car is easily mistaken for a genuine XK120 and is arguably one of the best evocation XK120’s we have seen in a very long time. Under the bonnet the car is fitted with a twin carburettor 420 Jaguar engine giving this lightweight bodied XK120 fantastic performance.

Said to drive beautifully, this car truly represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a wonderful example of a XK120 at the fraction of the price.
