1954 Jaguar XK120 Roadster Lot Number 267 Registration 501 UYO Chassis Number S674964 Engine Number F20688S Odometer reading 503 miles Estimate £90,000 - £120,000 Result Sold - £112,500 Print details Send this to a friend 9 more images Jaguar, in the 1950’s, penned some of the most beautiful motorcars on the planet. Few can deny the attraction the Malcolm Sayer designs had on film stars and the general public alike. The sensation caused when successive XKs were unveiled at motorshows around the world followed by the E-Type has not been rivalled since. The success enjoyed by Jaguar was not confined to the public roads however and Jaguar racings cars are equally competitive today as indeed they were over 60 years ago. Indeed many specialists now exist catering to models preparing them to fast road and race specification. Indeed it is a pleasure to offer this fully restored ‘Fast Road’ example today. Sold initially through world-famous Hoffmans of New York, this lefthand drive example was built in 1954 and sold just a week later, on the 17th, to David Roland Evans from the Napa Valley in rust-free California. The history is sketchy between then and 1993 when it was imported back to Europe through the Bremerhaven shipping terminal in Germany. We pick up the trail again in 2009 in Finland and a lot of water has passed under the bridge. It appears to have been owned for some time by Jouka Oja, a collector of note. It was under his ownership that it underwent a complete restoration in Germany. It was completely dismantled by specialists followed by a no-expense-spared chassis, body and engine restoration over a reported eight year period. The engine has been uprated to fast-road specification as attested to by an experienced Jaguar C-Type racing driver with all brakes and moving parts stripped and thoroughly rebuilt. The engine was also uprated to circa. 237bhp complete with desirable sand-cast carburettors, high volume aluminium radiator/Kenlowe fan and stainless steel exhaust. The interior is also of extremely high calibre; the matching blue leather, carpets and soft-top are all of fine quality and restored to original manufacturers specifications. It has since undergone approximately 500 shake-down miles in order to bed everything in. No issues were reported. With a final bill thought to be in the region of £200,000, it is not difficult to see why. The cost of the donor car matched to the sort of quality of work that you only hope other people have paid for and makes for quite a stunning Jaguar. The colours work and it has been very well put together. Indeed, with a new MoT test certificate, the soul of this car is very much alive and looking forward to the open road.
