Following our exchanges on my chassis, ( see 669118), mine is probably this one 669111.
As said, I have the chassis with suspension.

The car is not registrered , it is a chassis / Suspension only and I will probably be building it up in the coming years.

Car to be at auction 5/19
The Sale of British Marques 2019
1954 Jaguar XK120 FHC
Lot No.: 445
Registration: MCR 334
Chassis Number: 669111
Engine Number: F1478-8
Number of cylinders: 6
Year of Manufacture: 1954
RHD/LHD: Right Hand Drive
Estimate (£): 35,000 - 45,000
Sold originally through Wadham, Southampton in 'British Racing Green' with a Suede Green interior
A rare and interesting project, matching numbers and right-hand drive
Discovered in Denmark by the current owner and brought back to the UK with all taxes paid
3.4-litre 'six' embodying the best of period design, boasting twin overhead camshafts running in an aluminium-alloy cylinder head, seven main bearings, and a respectable output of 160bhp
Jaguar only made 194 right-hand drive XK120 fixed head coupes (this is #111) and there are probably less than 100 RHD cars surviving, the majority being left-hand drive. We understand that only 24 of those 194 left the factory finished in British Racing Green. These RHD cars were very difficult to obtain and, in a process that would be repeated for the first 50 E-Types some years later, owners were 'selected' on the basis of their celebrity or success in motor racing. For example
669005 Peter Whitehead one of the 1951 Le Mans winners
669006 Ian Stewart of Ecurie Ecosse
669024 J Mainsbridge won the Alpine Cup in 1953
669066 Neville Duke test pilot and holder of the World Airspeed Record
669108 Patsy Burt hillclimb competitor
669120 Ninian Sanderson who won the 1956 Le Mans with Ron Flockhart
669125 Jack Sears
669186 Jimmy Stewart older brother of Jackie Stewart
This, right-hand drive, matching numbers, XK120 FHC was despatched on the 12/01/54 to its first owner, a Mr Pillon in Southampton and was finished in British Racing Green with a Suede Green interior. Discovered by our vendor in Denmark, '669111' returned to these shores recently in order to be restored. Other pressing commitments mean that this lovely XK120 is available for someone else to return it to its former glory.
This is a very rare car and probably one of the last unrestored examples.
