Known History

The XK120 drophead coupé is rarer than the roadster, as it was only offered from 1953, for customers who wanted a sporty model but with a less spartan interior.

This car left the factory on 6 July 1953 and was sold 7 days later by the New York dealer Max Hoffman. It was elegantly finished in 'Battleship Grey', with a red leather interior and black hood. As its Jaguar Heritage record confirms, its first owner, from Connecticut, opted for a manual gearbox. At the end of the 1990s, this handsome convertible was completely restored, as can be seen from a file of bills and photographs. The work was done with care: the body was sound and the paint, in the car's original colour, is of a high standard. The body seals are in good used condition. The black hood is lined and in perfect condition, as is its cover. The red leather upholstery, with matching carpets and overmats, has been fully restored. The attractive wooden dashboard now has a speedometer marked in km/h which shows a total of 4099km. All the electrical equipment works, the wiring loom having been completely remade in cotton. The engine block and cylinder head match the original numbers; the entire engine was restored and is therefore in perfect working order. The Firestone Cavallino Sport tyres are little worn but date back to 2002. Supplied with its original owner's manual, this drophead coupé has been restored to a high standard in accordance with its original specification and is ready for the road.
