1952 Jaguar XK-120 at Grand Prix Cafe
1952 Jaguar XK120 roadster, born on the 27th May 1952 in stunning dark blue with red leather interior was delivered new to Los Angeles, California. A California car since new, the previous owner desired to not only have this classic roadster restored to perfection, but to also make some improvements for safety, reliability, and more suitable for touring and vintage rally events. To that end, the XK 120 was treated to a comprehensive, frame-off restoration by noted Southern California Jaguar marque specialist John Pollock. He added a host of tasteful improvements and upgrades during the restoration that still allow this Jaguar to retain its original aesthetics and character while also significantly enhancing its drivability and reliability. Some of the enhancements include Wilwood front disc-brakes, a Tremec five-speed gearbox with a .73 fifth gear ratio, Griffen aluminum radiator with auxiliary fan switch, Petronix electronic ignition system with matching high-voltage coil, gear reduction starter, Lucas 700 driving lights, stainless-steel exhaust system, and five Vredestein 185/SR16 High-Speed radial tires. Driver comfort and safety considerations were addressed with a custom-made set of bucket seats, competition seat belts, a 15-inch reproduction of the original steering wheel, a Hylon fire extinguisher, and Dynamat-lined floors and firewall. Additionally, a matching blue Stayfast tonneau cover along with a toolkit, owner’s manuals, and service receipts accompany the car. Since the restoration was completed, the Jaguar has been driven less than 3,000 reliable miles. Many of these miles were accumulated when the car participated successfully in both the Colorado Grand and the California Mille. A full service and proper sorting were recently completed by Jaguar expert Steve’s Jaguar, making this uniquely upgraded XK 120 ready to be enjoyed by its next driving enthusiast.
