Produced from 1948 to 1954, the XK120 raised comfort and roadholding standards for British sports cars, as well as setting multiple speed and endurance records. Advanced for the time, the 3.4-litre DOHC inline six-cylinder developed 160 bhp, and delivered a genuine top speed of 120 mph. In 1951, the fixed head coupe variant was added to the lineup, which offered additional luxury and streamlined styling. Over its four model years of production, 2,672 Coupes were built, which was only about one third of the Roadster’s production total.

According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) Certificate, this elegant XK120 Fixed Head Coupe was originally finished in silver over red upholstery and was delivered through Hornburg Jaguar Los Angeles to its first owner. Repainted in its present attractive Midnight Blue, this XK120 retains the original engine referenced on the JDHT Certificate and is accompanied by reproduction books, tools, and jack. Displaying just over 27,100 miles at the time of cataloguing, this Fixed Head Coupe has received a recent ignition system service as well as a fluid and battery update.

Well ahead of its contemporaries in terms of performance, design, and engineering, this XK120 is poised to provide enjoyment well into the future with its unique combination of sporting luxury.
