This Jaguar XK120 FHC was manufactured on the 28th of november 1952 and dispatched the 8th of december 1952 to Charles Hornburg, Los Angeles, California, USA.

As a standard steel car, fitted with spats, the car now benefits from the factory optional racing type bucket seats, fog lamps and is fitted with a stainless steel twin pipe racing exhaust system, sports air filters and Blockley tires.

In 1971 the car was parked in California until 2011 when it was bought as a solid, rust-free, californian restoration project. Over the next years the car was fully restored to a high standard.

This car is an in depth restored example of the rare FHC version Jaguar XK120 in extremely nice condition. It has been sparsely driven since restoration.

Comes with Heritage Certificate, its original jack and grease gun, and is on Dutch EU registration. Ready for some enjoyable driving experiences.
