160bhp, 3,442 cc dual overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with double wishbones and torsion bars, rigid rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, hydraulic four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 102"

Finished in the classic combination of British Racing Green with a tan convertible top and interior, this outstanding XK120 Roadster benefits from a complete and very thorough frame-off restoration by noted marque specialist Kyle Grim. Period correct down to the last nut and bolt, the restoration was completed in May 2006 and remains absolutely superb throughout.

Purchased by the current owner in February 2007, the car has been driven sparingly ever since, accumulating little more than break-in mileage. Equipped with a four-speed gearbox and chrome wire wheels, it is complete with side curtains, tools, a jack and comprehensive records including photo documentation of the aforementioned restoration. Additionally, the car benefits from a modern stereo system, with a head unit that is fully and smartly concealed behind the dash.

Completely sorted and beautifully presented, this XK120 drives exceptionally well and is ideally suited for both tours and show appearances. Beautifully restored, well maintained and handsomely liveried in British Racing Green, it is a superb example of what is unquestionably one of the most desirable postwar sports cars ever to find its way to American shores.
