An Important Auction of Grand Prix, Competition, Touring & Rally Cars and Collectors Items
Sat 14th January 2012 at 12:30pm
Lot 247 - 1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster
Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000
Registration Number: ZM 2174
Chassis Number: 660808

This XK120 Roadster was manufactured on 23rd May 1951 and delivered to Dublin on the 15th June where it is believed it remained until 1958. Subsequently the car returned to England and remained in storage and in 1980 was signed over to the then owner's wife. Purchased by the current owner in 2003, 660808 has had 3 registered keepers since 1958, two of which were in the same family. Purchased by the 3rd keeper in 2003 the car underwent a restoration which was completed in December 2005 and as a result it is described as being in excellent condition throughout.

Supplied with a V5 document, buff log book, heritage certificate, MoT certificates dating back to 2006 with a current example valid until March 2012, this matching numbers icon of classic British engineering is an excellent example of the iconic British sports car.

The link is to an 8mm film believed to be 1958 but may be earlier. ZM 2174 appears at 4m 20s
If anyone has information on ownership of this car in Ireland it would be much appreciated to news@limerickmc.ie

Ascot Racecourse May 21st 2022

1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster

Lot Number 180

Registration 345 RU

Chassis Number 660808

Engine Number W33388

Odometer reading 35,390 miles

Estimate £80,000 - £110,000

Stunning restored example

Recent full mechanical overhaul by RPS

Successfully raced in period

Manufactured on the 23rd May 1951 and dispatched to the first owner, Peter French, for the 14th June. This stunning XK120 roadster is presented in Silver with contrasting blood red trim and benefitted from a new hood frame, hood and side screens in 2016. Our vendor has owned this car since 2015 and has since treated the car to a full mechanical overhaul with RPS (Rally Preparation Services) in Oxfordshire, experts in their field. Between June 2019 and July 2021 this included stripping and overhauling the cylinder head converting to unleaded, a rebuilt steering box and culminated in a stripped and rebuilt gearbox a modified radiator and brake overhaul with detailed invoices in excess of £35,000. In period we are informed that this car competed with racing driver Billy Bradshaw and was successful winning the 1956 Walter Sexton Memorial Trophy and that a genuine C-Type head was purchased for the princely sum of £100 and fitted during this period (no longer with the car). Now a restored example with an original service manual and history folder with impeccable mechanical workmanship this car would be a fabulous addition to any collection and would be an ideal car for any XK enthusiast looking to enjoy the joy of driving these 50’s sports cars.

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?
