Jaguar’s racing legacy seemed to really take off in 1952. During this year, a 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster was driven continuously for seven days and nights around a track in Montlhery, France. The car would complete more than 16,000 miles in one week and would again prove that the Jaguar XK120 was not only capable of extraordinary endurance, but also unparalleled performance; the characteristics of a truly remarkable sports car. Paired with its elegant and graceful styling and seductive curvature, it is easy to understand why the Jaguar XK120 would run from its first preview at the 1948 London Motor Show until 1954. Over the production run, 12,078 XK120 models were produced; of that, 7,631 were Roadsters. The Roadster body style, overwhelmingly the most popular, was characterized by its open-air and two-seat configuration. Buyers of the Roadster are generally drawn by its primitive sports car experience and by the desire to have a truly open-air convertible at all times. Other options would include the Drop Head Coupe, which was a convertible with a soft top, or a Fixed Head Coupe, which was a traditional fixed-top coupe that offered four-season driving and protection from the elements.


1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster Seller’s Guide

Whether you’ve got a pristine, showroom quality 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster that has seen a complete restoration or an average quality barn-find that has been sitting untouched for decades, the team would be delighted to speak with you regarding the sale of your classic. Based in Los Angeles, the Alex Manos team is always on the hunt for classics of all makes, models and conditions, and is happy to pay top-dollar in cash, on the spot for your auto should it fit into their collection. Having assisted classic car sellers for a number of years, they are happy to provide Seller’s Tip to make your sale more successful. First, buyers of the XK120 love the 160hp, 3.4L inline-six engine that made this car famous. If your XK120 Roadster features the original engine or the engine has been rebuilt over the years, be sure to advertise this feature. Secondly, an educated buyer will always thoroughly check for rust on these early British sports cars, as there was virtually no rust protection used at the time. As a seller, if you can document any rust that is currently on the car, as well as any areas of rust repair, this will help potential buyers have confidence in your Roadster. Lastly, to make your sale as smooth and hassle free as possible, call the Alex Manos team and allow them the opportunity to offer you top-dollar for your classic Jaguar. Why go through the hassle of trying to sell your classic on your own?
