The car offered here, chassis number 670061, was the 61st alloy roadster built and it is one of 184 delivered with left-hand drive. It is believed to have been originally owned by roger thomas, of connecticut and it was later converted to right-hand drive. In keeping wit. It's sporting British origins, refinished in beautiful silver with blue leather, as it appears today.

Mr. Swimmer acquired the jaguar around 2005, from his friend don williams, of the blackhawk collection. Mr. Williams related that he purchased this car as part of a package of cars from england, where he believed it to have remained for some time with. Its then-owner.

This has been one of the longest-term resident of Mr. Swimmer’s collection, as well as his most driven car. He reported that it ran beautifully up to 115 mph, the highest speed to which he was willing to take it. It was well known as an excellent competitor during its two runs in the colorado grand and its completion of the california mille; Together, these runs represent some 3, 000 miles of high-performance touring. Throughout its rally career, it was intermittently shown, and in 2007, at the local San Diego concours, the XK120 was inspected by jcna judges and restorers Jack Rabell and Tom Krefetz. They both deemed the car to be very correct and authentic, with matching numbers.

The car went through extensive restoration to a very high standard. This jaguar was displayed at the 50th anniversary of Le Mans and Monthlery Jaguar museum. It spent most of its life in the USA before being imported to the uk, November 2014. We purchased the car in 2016 and it's been kept in our private collection ever since.

60 bhp, 3, 442 cc dohc inline six-cylinder engine with twin su h6 carburetors, four-speed manual transmission, independent front and live rear axles with semi-elliptic spring rear suspension, and four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 102 in.

Importantly, the vehicle retains its original tool set, as well as a set of full disc wheel covers and rear fender spats. The wheels are shod in Verdestain radial tyres, improving the car’s road manners.

This car represents incredible value and collectability, and certainly ticks all of the boxes: Open, two-seat, European sports car, stunning good looks, and very limited production numbers.

In 2013 Chuck Swimmers San Diego collection were offered for sale at auction in the USA, which was where this car was purchased by tv / radio 2 DJ Chris Evans, and has been in the UK ever since. Supplied with a Jaguar heritage certificate. This car is being offered here to a new owner. Who will, undoubtedly, enjoy it as he did.
