1953 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe

Produced from 1948 to 1954, the Jaguar XK120 was the first in a long lineage of curvaceous, powerful and affordable sports cars to come from the British manufacturer. Jaguar’s first sports car since the SS 100 was launched prior to the war, the XK120 would garner incredible praise and attention. It would first be released as a raw and primitive Roadster, then also as a true closed model called the Fixed Head Coupe in 1951. The 1953 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe would run alongside another release, the Drop Head Coupe, which offered a true convertible top. Each of these models appealed to a different type of buyer. The Roadster to those who wanted to raw feel of a true race car, the Fixed Head Coupe to those who wanted protection from the elements and a true four-season driving experience, and the Drop Head Coupe to those who loved the Roadster but wanted the option of a convertible top. Which model did you choose when purchasing your XK120?
