Vehicle Description


This 1952 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe was reportedly modified as a race car during the mid-1990s and used for various Jaguar Club and vintage racing events through 2005. The car was subsequently converted for rally use and is said to have participated in the 2007 Colorado Grand, 2008 California Mille, and 2009 Going to the Sun rallies prior to being acquired by the previous owner in 2016. The car is finished in red over a black interior and powered by a bored and stroked 3.4-liter inline-six mated to a ZF five-speed manual transmission. Additional equipment includes a Howe aluminum radiator, a Fuel Safe racing cell, an oil cooler, a Facet electric fuel pump, Koni front shocks, CNC front brake calipers, tri-bar headlamps, 16" wire wheels, a padded roll bar, and Simpson racing harnesses.

This 1952 Jaguar XK120 FHC was originally finished in Birch Grey, the car was repainted its current shade of red during the early 1990s. Exterior details include a leather hood strap, tri-bar headlamps, an electrical cutoff switch, chrome side mirrors, rear bumperettes, and hood vents. Cracks are noted around the lower front valance and there is some corrosion around the base of the windshield. Close-up images of the paint, lenses, trim, and imperfections are shown in the gallery.

Chrome 16" wire wheels wear two-eared knock-off spinners and are mounted with 185-width Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. Please note in the pictures that the spare wheel is on the car currently due to a flat tire. A full-size spare is found in the trunk. Koni shocks and CNC brake calipers have been installed up front. The cabin has two low-back bucket seats that are trimmed in black vinyl and equipped with Simpson racing harnesses. A padded roll bar has been added, and a fire extinguisher is mounted on the rear deck.

A wood-rimmed steering wheel sits ahead of a burl wood dash housing Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 140-mph speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer with an inset analog clock, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 12k miles, approximately 800 of which were added since 2016. Total mileage is unknown.

The replacement 3.4-liter inline six has reportedly been bored to 83mm and fitted with a 101mm stroker crankshaft. Induction is through dual SU carburetors. A Fuel Safe racing cell has also been installed along with a Facet electric fuel pump and a Howe aluminum radiator with an electric cooling fan. An oil cooler has been installed in the passenger-side front wheel well. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a ZF five-speed manual transmission. Underside images are presented in the gallery.
