This beautifully presented UK Home Market Jaguar XK120 was supplied new by Leicester based agents Sanderson-Holmes Limited and registered CRC 919 on November 2nd 1951. The XK120 spent its early life in Derbyshire in regular use but by the late 1970's the car was no longer taxed and off the road. In 1984, the XK re-appeared in Norwich and four years later in 1988 it was sold by Mill Lane Engineering Ltd in need of restoration to a Surrey based enthusiast.

The new owner commissioned Mill Lane Engineering Ltd to carry out top class full nut and bolt restoration that cost in the region of £88,000. The XK had a no expense spared rebuild that saw every componenet removed, replaced or re-conditioned and a superbly well documented invoice file and photographic record details the work. The bodyshell of CRC 919 was taken back to bare metal and photographs confirm the car had the most superb, straight bodyshell. The body was prepared and re-painted in Black cellulose paint and the interior re-trimmed with the correct pattern seats finished in Brown and Tan using the finest Connolly hides. The XK was built up to present as a total standard car with original steel wheels with correct painted hub caps, rear wheel spats, single pipe exhaust system, correct period dashboard instrumentation and a factory specification interior as mentioned above.

CRC 919 was completeley rebuilt mechanically and additioned upgrades included an 8:1 compression cylinder head and electric fan. The XK120 was completed with a brand new double duck hood, sidescreens and tonneau cover. After two years of careful, diligent work, the XK was completed to an exceptional standard and over the next fifteen years covered almost 2000 miles, used sparingly for club events and local shows. After a total of 17 years with one owner, the XK changed hands and was soon to be owned by a London based Investment Bank in Burlington Street, W1. In 2012 CRC 919 was purchased by its most recent owner and due to lack of use, was taken to Guy Broad for a program of re-commissioning work. This included rebuilding the carbs, replacing the lever arm shocks, fitting new tyres, rebuilding the steering box, idler and steering system, fitting new batteries, replacing the master cylinder, fitting new wheel cylinders, brake linings, new anti-roll bar bushes and fully servicing the car.

Between 2015 and 2017, further mechanical work has been carried out to include an engine rebuild. Engine specialists stripped the unit, fully re-manufactured and balanced the engine and carried out a rear oil seal conversion. Whilst removed, the gearbox was treated to new front and rear oil seals and gaskets. Guy Broad supplied a new pedal box and front brake disc kit. In total, a further £15,000 has been spent on this XK120 to ensure its ready for regular use and long distance touring. Since this major overhaul work, the XK has covered just 500 miles and only 5000 have been completed since the late 1980's £88,000 full restoration. CRC 919 is now in a position to be enjoyed and is offered onto the market in strong mechanical order. The XK 3.4 engine is superb with excellent compressions and oil pressure, it performs superbly and the correct four speed Moss gearbox is lovely to use. The XK handles, steers and brakes superbly and is driving beautifully. Almost 30 years on from completion of the rebuild, CRC 919 presents wonderfully and this is down to careful use, good storage and careful ownership. The Black paintwork gleams, the bodyshell is superb with excellent gaps and the chrome work is still of an excellent standard. The interior now has a nicely aged finish to it, the weather gear is in excellent order and the engine bay and boot area present exceptionally well. This is a beautifully prepared and presented UK XK120 and having had its recent program of work, its superbly well sorted and ready to use and enjoy.
