A sporty roadster with a nice history – perfect for the Jaguar aficionado!

1 16

This is a lovely Home Market Roadster! It’s been known to and owned by Club members for many years, including renowned historic car artist Alan Fearnley. Ownership is known back to 1960, as documented in the old style green log book, with over 40 years of service and MOT history. It was extensively restored by DK Engineering in the mid 1970s, and since then there is a constant stream of invoices showing upgrades and maintenance.

Upgrades include:

  • Disk brake conversion, front
  • Coopercraft brakes, front
  • Louvered bonnet
  • Overdrive gearbox
  • C-Type head
  • 2 inch Sand Cast SU Carburettors
  • Stainless steel exhaust system
  • Pedal box for greater leg room

It has recently had an extensive service, including the fitting of Michelin tyres all round. It drives beautifully, with the feel of a well sorted, well considered, well looked after enthusiasts XK. It sounds great on the stainless exhausts, and starts, goes and stops better than almost any XK120 Roadster Pendine has driven. The interior shows delicious patina and the paint has settled nicely.
