This very elegant and wonderfully restored, atching numbered 1950 Jaguar XK120 roadster (also known as XK120 OTS in America) awaits the very discerning vintage car buyer. It is a wonderful roadster in Concourse condition with a lively and notable pedigree.

The story begins in 1948, here the XK120 first appeared as a prototype at the London Motor Show. The prototype of the two-seat XK120 caused such a sensation that Jaguar boss William Lyons went back to his offices and immediately put the car into production.

This numbers matching California original Jaguar with 53,160 miles showing on the odometer has been refreshed in a stunning cream over cream color combination, ith maroon piping and maroon soft-top and side curtains. To give you an idea of how well this XK120 runs, he previous owner drove it from Arizona to Northern California in 2014, here it was featured in events during the week of the Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance. Again, n 2015 he drove it from Arizona to Southern California, here it became part of the BlueChip Motorcars’ fleet of classics. This particular XK120 was also a featured exhibitor at the 2015 6thAnnual Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance in Beverly Hills, alifornia.

Additionally, his XK120 was ordered with unique chrome options, hich were not available in the later XK120 models. These “chrome plated” options included: bolt-on fender mounted side lights, assenger grip handle, ood and trunk lid support rod, ood and trunk lid support rod “keeper” clip, eat frames and convertible top support bows, ear window outside frame, arpet hold-down strip, ide curtain frames, teering column adjustable flat spring collar, runk light housing frame, runk light switch button, ounting plate and lever, nd the wheel embellisher “beauty” rims.

Even more amazing, he original black phenolic grease gun is still present, eld by two metal clips attached to the driver’s side cowling near the glass reservoir for the brakes. The rear boot compartment not only has the spare tire, ack, lat jack ratchet handle, ug nut wrench and spat removal “Tee” tool, ut there also is the green cloth tool roll with some rare factory tools like sockets, panners and an adjustable wrench.

To compliment these original accessories, lueChip Motorcars holds the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, hich authenticates the originality of this true surviving Jaguar. Lastly, he owner’s manual factory technical manual, tonneau cover, ind deflector wing windows, nd a side curtain storage bag accompany the car.
