Car offered by:
colour XK120 Roadster
interior colour Red / Biscuit Hide
type Cabrio / Roadster
mileage 80.366 km / 49.937 mi
Chassis No. 660064
country United Kingdom
Undoubtedly One of The Most Original Roadster’s In Existence Anywhere in The World.
Our car is finished in it's original factory Black Cellulose complemented by Red / Biscuit Hide interior which is nicely mellowed and so beautifully patinated. Spats and Dinner Plate wheels finish off the magnificent period look of this Roadster.
With a speedo reading of only 49,937 KPH: together with various documentation accompanying the Jaguar we believe this to be the correct mileage from new.
There can be very few XK120 Roadsters left today in the world in an unrestored condition or that have not been patched along the way.
This Jaguar represents a totally unique opportunity to acquire a genuine time warp original. Surely a blue chip investment for the future!

1950 JAGUAR XK120 ROADSTER
The Jaguar XK120 Roadster offered by Historic Classics is one of the most important road-going examples to be brought to the market in recent times.
Built on the 12th April 1950, chassis 660064 is one of the first six right-hand drive steel-bodied XK120s to have been made and believed to be the 2nd oldest survivor. It is one of just 1,175 right-hand drive Roadsters built over five years. Being a very early car, it was obliged to be exported when new - hence the km speedo - and spent the first 24 years in the warm and car friendly environment of Italy.
Perhaps even more impressive than the rarity is just how highly original it remains. The odometer reads an accurate and true 49,973 kms (31,052 miles), all of which have been accumulated on the matching numbers 3.4-litre straight six engine. Also preserved is the original factory black paintwork and red & biscuit trim, both of which display a maturity that is lost on all but a few special survivors. The studless cam covers and tall carburettors are further correct very early features.
Lord Anthony Bamford kept this XK120 in his car collection for many years, as confirmed within an extensive history file and it also starred in the 'Marques of a Legend' video of the mid 1980s. More recently the Roadster has been in the ownership of one of the leading Jaguar collectors in the world.
A detailed history file accompanies this extraordinary XK120 Roadster.
