Car to be at auction 4/24

Auction description:

Goodwood Members' Meeting|14 April 2024

LOT 127

1951 Jaguar XK120 3.8-Litre Roadster Registration no. to be advised Chassis no. 660480 Engine no. W 2665 8 now LC7274-8

Estimate: £55,000 - £75,000

Registration no. to be advised

Chassis number '660480' is one of 1,175 right-hand drive examples built out of a total of 7,612 roadsters built in 1950 and first registered January 1951. The car was supplied by Henlys London with the original registration LXR 895 in Cream with Biscuit & Red Trim (the same as it is today). The car has belonged to our vendor's family since his uncle purchased it in Richmond in 1960. The Jaguar had previously been raced at Silverstone. It was restored in the 1960s, re-registered as 'VR 78', and used as a daily driver as well as undertaking trips abroad. There are many photographs on file of the car taken during those years. In the 1975 the XK was taken off the road and placed in dry storage in London.

Following the vendor's uncle's retirement, the car was completely restored to original specification by CooperCraft from 1997-1999 and then used for 20 years for exhibition at Car shows, winning various awards. A 3,781cc Jaguar Mk2 engine had been purchased from a 1963 car (JEX 944) in the 1970s as a spare, and this was installed during the restoration. Coopers also fitted a front disc brake conversion. The car is dry stored and a reliable daily runner following recent service/renewal of suspension bushes, brakes, ignition and hoses. It would make a fantastic car for Mille Miglia given its age and ability to cover miles at speed. Related bills are on file and the car also comes with a Heritage Certificate, a V5C document, a workshop manual, and spares. It should be noted that the registration 'VR 78' is being retained by the vendor and the car will be supplied with an age related registration number.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
