•Matching numbers
•Restored to a very high standard

•Only circa 600 kilometres since restoration

This car was built on 23rd June 1953 to be shipped to the USA for delivery to Jaguar's West Coast distributor Hornburg in Los Angeles, California. Its original colour scheme was Birch Grey with red interior.

The car's history is not known prior to 2003 when it was found in a barn and purchased as a restoration project by a Dutchman from Hengelo, which is where the current vendor first encountered it. He was very keen on buying the XK because the car was very straight, highly original, and retained matching numbers. The owner did not want to sell but eventually, in 2006, the Jaguar was sold to a Mr van Rossum in Holland.

Mr van Rossum had the car treated to a complete 'last nut and bolt' restoration to concours standards, albeit at a relaxed tempo. The colour was changed to the current beautiful dark blue while the interior was completely re-upholstered in burgundy - a most handsome colour combination. This XK120 went to various different restorers because it was never 'good enough'; the owner being perfectionist wanted to have the best of the best - an approach that has its price and is time consuming. It is for that reason that it took him so long to get the car finished.

In 2012, the Jaguar was registered again for road use, though Mr van Rossum hardly drove it. Three years and a few kilometres later, in 2015, he decided to sell the car to the current owner. The latter advises us that the XK has been driven only some 3,000 kilometres since the restoration's completion in 2012. According to him, the car is still in the same concours condition as when it finished restoration. It still presents beautifully and is said by the vendor to be mechanically in top condition. Offered with a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, this must be one of the best XK120s currently available.

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?
