Carte grise française
Châssis n° 672220
Moteur n°W4978-8

- Roadster de rêve, avec une belle combinaison de couleurs d''origine
- " Matching numbers "
- Superbe présentation
- Provenant de la collection d''un amateur du Lubéron

Les affres de la Seconde Guerre mondiale appartiennent à un passé encore récent lorsque la Jaguar XK 120 défraye la chronique en se présentant à l''occasion du London Motor Show de 1948. Son succès est en effet immédiat, tant en Europe qu''outre atlantique où elle devient d''emblée la voiture des stars.
C''est justement de Californie que nous vient ce sublime roadster. De couleur gris bleu (Birch Grey), avec un intérieur en cuir rouge, comme lorsqu''il a été livré à l''époque, il a connu dans le début des années 90 une restauration de très haute qualité comme en atteste l''ensemble des factures et de nombreuses photos. Ainsi, la partie mécanique a fait l''objet d''une reconstruction à neuf portant sur le moteur, l''embrayage, les freins, les trains roulants, le circuit électrique, qui la rendent immédiatement utilisable. Pour autant, l''ensemble de ses numéros d''identification (châssis, moteur) sont conformes à l''origine. La culasse d''origine sera fournie avec la voiture car elle a été remplacée par un modèle plus performant. La voiture possède d''ailleurs un certificat du "Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust", qui valide la limpidité de l''exemplaire présenté. Atout de charme, ce roadster est fourni avec son outillage d''origine, son manuel de bord, son couvre-tonneau et ses vitres souples. Il représente une très belle opportunité d''acheter un bel exemplaire de XK 120.



French title
Chassis n° 672220
Engine n°W4978-8

- A dream roadster, with stunning original colour combination
- " Matching numbers "
- Superb presentation
- Coming from the collection of an enthusiast from South of France

The horrors of World War Two were still a recent memory when the Jaguar XK 120 hit the headlines at the London Motor Show in 1948. It was an immediate success, both in Europe and across the Atlantic where it became a favorite with the celebrities.
This sublime roadster does, in fact, hail from California. Presented in its original colour combination, Birch grey with red leather interior, the car benefitted from a high level restoration at the start of the 1990s, detailed in a comprehensive file of invoices and photos. Mechanically, the car was completely rebuilt, with work carried out on the engine, clutch, brakes, running gear, and electrics. The chassis and engine identification numbers are matching. It has been fitted with a more powerful cylinder head, and the original head will be included in the sale. The car comes with its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, validating its provenance, as well as an original tool kit, owner''s manual, tonneau-cover and flexible windows. This roadster is full of charm, and is one of the finest XK 120s available today.
