1950 Jaguar XK120 early alloy/steel body, fully restored For Sale
The XK120 was presented in 1948 at the London Motor Show by Bill Lyons for its formidable ability of reaching 120mph. Once 272 alloy bodied cars were made, Jaguar met the public's growing demand by producing steel bodyshells. Of these, only very few early cars were built using a steel body with alloy engine hood, trunk lid and doors. These also featured the early elegant chrome side light housings on the front fenders.
This early Jaguar XK120 was constructed as such on the 14th of June 1950 for the export market. In 1995 it was imported from France to the UK by Chelsea Cars and in 2001 sold to a London collector. In turn he conducted a total restoration to its original specifications and imported it in Greece. It is now part of a Jaguar collection and recently received a full maintenance service for show or regularity drive purposes.
