(670061) The alloy-bodied XK series cars are the most valuable cats of the range and this matching numbers example was in fine running fettle with participation in the California Mille and Colorado Grand. Reported to be one of the only 184 Jaguar XK120 alloy roadsters to have been completed in LHD, it was converted to RHD sometime in its past. The older restoration still presented well and the car is reputedly a well driving machine as its recent touring history would seem to attest.
The market for rare and high-point JCNA cars continues to improve and the rarity of this example certainly helped this car to a sale at a very strong $495,000 at the RM Auctions during the Amelia Island weekend 2014-08-01 at 12.22.27 PM” width=”300″ height=”222″ />. Very well sold but will prove to be well bought down the road.
