In the beautiful colour combination of Dark Blue 50A and a cognac-coloured leather interior.
This XK120 was produced in November 1953 according to the Heritage Trust Certificate. The Jaguar was shipped from the plant a month later and shipped to Jaguar importer Charles Hornburg in Los Angeles, California. This XK120 remained in the United States until 1992 when it was sold and then exported to Portugal. Once in Portugal, the car was restored in great detail by removing the body from the chassis and rebuilding it.
The Jaguar is richly documented, it has a thick folder with various invoices, photos and detailed documentation of the restoration, a Heritage Trust Certificate, a FIVA Identity Card, etc. There is also a copy of Volante magazine from July 1992 which describes the history of this Jaguar, it testifies to the quality of the restoration carried out at the time. The Jaguar was delivered ex works with spoke wheels instead of the original steel wheels.
The car was subsequently exported from Portugal to Greece in 2017 and taken over by the then owner. Both the exterior and the interior are in excellent condition. The Jaguar has benefitted from recent maintenance, including an overhaul of the brakes and carburettors, a new fuel pump and the new liquids. A beautiful, era-defining classic sports car, powered by one of the best engines of the 20th century.\t
The Jaguar may have of course sustained some signs of wear and age over the years, see photos.
