1953 Jaguar XK120 Roadster

Built in July 1953, and finished in Black over a Biscuit and Red interior, this XK120 Roadster is a Home Market, matching numbers example that retains its original registration number.

KAM 505 has clearly lived a much cared for life with invoices on file dating back to 1971. In the mid 1990’s it underwent a full body off restoration that also included a rebuild of its original engine. Since then that it has been sparingly used and thoroughly cherished by its owners. In March 2019 a comprehensive service was carried out, a service that included a complete rebuild of the carburettors, full ignition service along with brake and suspension adjustments. As such, it drives as one would expect from such a smart example.

Finding a RHD XK120 in its original specification, especially one that still sits on ‘steels and spats’, is not easy. Fortunately, this example ticks all the right boxes.

Model: XK 120
Dealer: Pendine
Pendine specialise in the sale of historic cars for road and track. Whilst focusing specifically on the immediate post-war period through to the 1970s, our experience ranges from Edwardian racers through to the supercars of the 1990s. The company is named after Pendine sands, the 7 mile stretch of beach on the south coast of Wales that was the setting for Britain claiming and retaining the land speed record in the 1920s. The record runs started with Malcom Campbell in 1924, Parry Thomas with ‘Babs’ in 1926 and finally Campbell again in the first Bluebird in 1927. In the spirit of those pioneer racers, our mission at Pendine is to become the leaders in our field, breathing fresh life into the historic car market as we go.
