To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate:80,000 - 100,000 Desirable fast road specification; fitted with a C-Type headPerfect for vintage racing events; highly eligible Completed in December 1950 in Suede Green over a matching interior, this Jaguar XK 120 Roadster was built to RHD specifications for its home market and sold to its first owner via the Midland Autocar company in 1951. Mentioned in a 1977 letter to the XK Bulletin, the then owner, Chris Bowles of New Maldon, Surrey, had changed the exterior colour to its present colours, Old English White over a red interior.At some point it was converted from right-hand drive to left-hand drive, with the addition of a new engine cylinder head, likely a C-Type specification from a later model. Already a car which cannot be described as lacking in performance, the C-Type head makes this XK 120 Roadster even more usable and enjoyable, and this would be an ideal example for vintage events or just to drive and enjoy.Desejada especificação fast road; Cabeça de motor C-TypePerfeito para eventos de clássicos desportivos; altamente elegívelProduzido em dezembro de 1950, em verde Suede, com interior a combinar, este Jaguar XK 120 Roadster tinha condução à direita e estava destinado ao mercado britânico. Foi vendido ao primeiro dono pela Midland Autocar company, em 1951. Em 1977, foi referido numa carta dirigida ao XK Bulletin. O seu proprietário era Chris Bowles, de New Maldon, no Surrey, que o mandou pintar em branco Old English White, com interior vermelho. A dada altura da sua história foi convertido para condução à esquerda, recebendo também uma nova cabeça de motor com especificação C-Type, provavelmente de um modelo mais recente. Sendo um automóvel rápido, mesmo com as especificações normais, este XK 120 Roadster, com a cabeça C-Type tornou-se o automóvel ideal tanto para eventos de clássicos desportivos como apenas para conduzir e desfrutar.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
