XK-120 FHC

Welcome to our vision of what Jaguar might have built if tasked with improving the performance, reliability and comfort of the XK-120 fixedhead coupe. Not only has this Jaguar received a multi-year comprehensive restoration by ourselves, it incorporates a variety of period modifications (Weber carburetors, louvered bonnet, rallye clocks, etc.) and decidedly modern updates (alternator, five-speed gearbox, disc brakes, etc.) that strike the ultimate balance between a vintage appearance and a level of comfort and performance that is anything but vintage. We invite your inspection.
