I have the Heritage certificate for my car showing that it was built in 1950 and imported into the USA by Hoffman Motor Co.

I am trying to find early owner history or any information related to the car.

Any leads will be most appreciated.

What does your Certificate say Gearbox wise ?

Hi Peter,

If the car was built late Sept 1950 and dispatched 26 Fed 1951, would the car be classified as a 1950 or 1951

Just curious, Thanks.

Adam: Both dates are honest but custom uses the build date. - The on-the-road date can be months or even years later. Also a 51 Model could have been introduced in preceding year

Lot 17

1950 Jaguar XK120 Roadster

Sold for US$ 95,200 inc. premium

The Scottsdale Auction

17 Jan 2019

Chassis no. 670748

Engine no. W2112-8

*Beautifully presented in period-correct Silver over red livery

*Recent comprehensive restoration performed

*Retains matching numbers engine and cylinder head

*Offered with Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, tools and much paraphernalia

This beautiful XK120 Roadster—or Open Two-Seater as officially called in the day—first roared to life inside Jaguar's Coventry facility on September 20th, 1950. As an early production car, it features some desirable early-production details, and was really coming off the line not long after the first batch of alloy bodied XK120's was produced. Originally finished in black over a biscuit and red trimmed interior and gunmetal colored convertible top, this left-hand drive Roadster was destined for the US market and was dispatched to Hoffman Motor Car Company in New York in February of 1951. It has likely remained within the United States since.

The car is believed to have been bought new by a dentist in Miami, FL, and been in the care of just three owners since then. The XK was purchased by the consignor in 2008, and has since been treated to a comprehensive, nut-and-bolt restoration. During the meticulous process, the body was stripped and repainted in the period-correct silver color, while the chassis was refurbished as well. Engine, gearbox, and clutch systems were evaluated and restored, as was the electrical system, brightwork, and interior.

Today, this iconic sports car is beautifully presented inside and out. Under the bonnet, the original matching-numbers, 3.4-liter XK engine and 4-speed transmission give this XK120 performance on par with its striking looks. The silver paintwork nicely suits the sensuous curves of the body and accentuates the complimentary red leather interior. The bodywork is straight with good panel fitment and the paintwork has a lustrous shine. The minimal brightwork on this XK120 is in very good condition, as is the leather interior, which is nicely trimmed and shows minimal signs of wear. This XK120 is well-sorted throughout and ready to be enjoyed by its next owner, on spirited open-air drives, touring events, or car shows. It offers a great opportunity to acquire an engaging driver's car that is also beautiful and eligible for various driving events.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
