This matching numbers 1954 Jaguar XK120 OTS Roadster represents one of the world’s all-time great sports cars. When introduced in 1949, the XK120 shook the world with its stunning lines and tremendous performance. With a top speed of 120 mph (thus the name), it was the fastest production car of its day and propelled Jaguar to top of the motorsports food chain.

Today, nearly 70 years later, this timeless design remains a thing of beauty and delivers a splendid driving experience. Note the car is titled by its engine number, which can be seen on both the block and the head. This also matches the information plate, and comes with its original manual, as shown in the images. Today the car remains a real gem. The design absolutely flows from that gorgeous front grille to the distinct taillights. The engine is Jaguar’s 3.4L I6, rated at 160 hp. With an aluminium alloy cylinder head and dual overhead camshafts, it was decades ahead of the competition; how long did it take for Detroit to adopt such technology? The basic design remained in Jaguars through 1987 which is a real testament to its engineering. This car’s dual SU carburettors and exhaust manifolds look great under the hood, but the real pleasure is all that great noise as you accelerate through the 4-speed Moss gearbox.

There is a full dual exhaust system as well. After having sat idle for a few years, this Jaguar has recently been returned to service. The brakes received a new master cylinder and several wheel cylinders, and were properly bled. The valve cover gaskets, oil gauge line, and unique 6V batteries were all replaced. The carburettors were also serviced. The car has been restored to its original condition. The XK120 is from a golden era of automobiles when sports cars really started to make their mark as society recovered from WW2. Engine No: F3629-8 Rego: 37602J
