The 1953 Jaguar XK120 Roadster would run alongside a XK120 Drop Head Coupe for the first time during this model-year. The Drop Head Coupe would become the most luxurious model of the lineup, offering owners a walnut veneered dash and trim, wind-up windows and a more comfortable cabin. The DHC also featured a new and better sealing top that used a more robust construction, padding and headliner. The 1953 XK120 Roadster, however, remained as the top-selling body style despite offering little to no protection from the elements and a very raw and primitive driving experience. The Roadster was also quite well known for its racing history. In fact, it was a Jaguar XK120 Roadster that was awarded the victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1951, 1952 and 1953, and the Coupe d’Or (Gold Cup) in the 1952 Alpine Rally. Collectors today, even if they are unfamiliar with the racing pedigree of the Jaguar XK120, still love the Roadster for its iconic curvature and design, and for being a truly revolutionary sports car during its era. When selling your 1953 Jaguar XK120 Roadster, however, there are a few questions you should ask yourself before the sale.
