1951 Jaguar XK120 OTS

Right Hand Drive
Red Leather

We are very pleased to offer to the market this genuine and rare early RHD XK120 OTS with the important all matching numbers.

Finished in its original colours, Silver grey with Red leather interior this is a 3 owner car from new with a known history…..much information known by XK120 historian and regular XK club contributor David Bentley.

Sold new by French importer Delecroix in early 1951 to a Mr Grimaldi living in Nice, Côte d’Azur. Could this be the Prince Rainer of Monaco / relation of the Monaco royal family?

It has been through a few collectors hands since, stored in a collection from the early 60’s until 2007 where it was brought out to attend the following rallies.

– Amicable Denis Papin: Rallye des Zazous 2008.
– Rallye de Carcassonne 2008.
– Rallye du Lot 2008.
– Rallye d’Espagne 2009.

This well advised and esthete man ordered the car with the famous Robergel wire wheels, this allows you to keep the original and so beautiful rear spats even with wire wheels, not possible with central Rudge hubs.

A very rare option which make this XK120 look absolutely stunning and unique.

A completely correct car and matching in every way as confirmed by the Jaguar heritage certificate Original early studless engine still with its original head. Original frame and body. Alloy bonnet  / boot / doors only found on the early production cars. A great opportunity to get a rare early RHD XK 120 with genuine matching numbers that has never been re-bodied or damaged. A secret and hidden chassis stamping known only to the purists still exists…..find another that does!

Since our purchase we have carried out a significant amount of work to bring this XK up to our usual high level of standards, this includes….

  • Complete bare metal respray
  • Complete re-wire

  • Complete set of fuel lines
