This XK 120 "early type" roadster came out of the Coventry factory in June 1951, for export to Casablanca. The car then came to France in 1970, into the ownership of H. Teisserenc, who then participated in many competitions at its wheel. The car changed hands in 1989 and was bought in 1991 by our collector. It then benefited from a first series of works such as the repair of the braking, the differential, and a change of the electrical harness system. XK150 disc brakes were then fitted at the front. From 1996, the restoration continued with removal of the bodywork and complete painting, and the mounting of a completely redone engine (by VSE).The chrome and the upholstery were redone too. The cockpit was modified for "taller" people, improving access into the car as well as the driving position. Equipped to be driven in a rally or over long distances, it has a double Tripmaster, seat belts, an oil temperature gauge, a water box and many other practical details such as the luggage rack. Seen at many events such as the Coupe des Alpes and well known by the Jaguar club, this interesting version offers reliability and a beautiful patina; a car well restored and maintained to be driven!
Auction estimate: €90 000/130 000 - No reserve
