1951 Jaguar XK 120 OTS (1951)




We are proud to present this early XK120 for sale on behalf of the owner, who due to circumstances sadly must pass it on to its next carer.
Owned for many years, this car was restored in the UK prior to his ownership, however the restoration had not held up well & was sold as a restoration project.
The car was  received November 2008 as a open cheque book recommission / restoration & colour change.
We conducted a body off full bare metal restoration of the body,  and checked alignment, stripped & repainted the chassis.
The mechanicals were all inspected & reconditioned where appropriate, plus identification of all components to ensure it was either original to the car and corect for date of manufacture.
The motor was stripped to the block & rebuilt as appropriate.
It was then accepted by the VCC identification program before registering Fec 2011.
Since then it has been in dry storage & only occasionally used by its owner that worked iternationally & stayed infrequently in Nelson.
The car presents well throughout, The interior was refitted as still extremely tidy with some minor fading only, and is possibly original, certainly done as per original materials & patterns correct for the car. A Motolite 4 spoke steering wheel completes the package.
Hood & wet weather equipment in authentic materials are in good condition
We have changed oil & filter, cleaned out the fuel system  including the tank & carburettors, replaced fuel pump & spark plugs & inspected & reconditioned the brakes as required - primarily wheel cylinders were required & a bleed through with fresh brake fluid.
The car starts runs & drives well, with plenty of smooth power.
It now has a new Wof & registration & will be available for your inspection by appointment as it will be stored offsite.
Please register your interest by calling Tim at Autofocus.
