Conceived and constructed in but a few months, the XK120 debuted at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show where the stunning-looking roadster caused a sensation, the resulting demand for what was then the world's fastest production car taking Jaguar by surprise. It was immediately obvious that the slow-to-produce alloy bodywork would have to go, and the car was swiftly re-engineered in steel. The work of Jaguar boss William Lyons himself and one of the most beautiful shapes ever to grace an automobile, the body was conceived as a coachbuilt aluminium structure for the simple reason that Jaguar expected to sell no more than 200 XK120s in the first year!The car's heart was, of course, the fabulous XK engine, a 3.4-litre 'six' embodying the best of modern design, boasting twin overhead camshafts running in an aluminium-alloy cylinder head, seven main bearings and a maximum output of 160bhp. The XK120 set new standards of comfort, roadholding and performance for British sports cars and, in keeping with the Jaguar tradition, there was nothing to touch it at the price.
284 UYO was beautifully restored just over 10 years ago and still displays beautifully. The exterior is finished in Masons Black and holds a high level of sheen. 
Inside the seats are unmarked pale grey hide with matching grey carpets.  Highly figured mirror polished burr walnut adorns the various dash surfaces & door cappings.  Indicated mileage is 7,271 since restoration.  The car underneath is needless to say as good as it is on top.  The spare tyre, jack & tools are in their appointed places in the boot.
This XK120 has been part of a private collection and has now benifitted from a mechanical going through by our workshops. She is now ready to go and driving well. The engine starts instantly & pulls strongly in all gears, being particularly crisp in operation.  Under the bonnet the car is well detailed & ready to be displayed at shows. 
In our showroom and ready for viewing.
