The 1953 Jaguar XK120 is an important model year in the production of the XK120 line, as it was the first year to offer the Drop Head Coupe or DHC. Similar to the Fixed Head Coupe, the DHC offered a well-tailored folding hood that replaced the steel roof. The 1953 XK120 Drop Head Coupe also offered a Fixed Head style windscreen that was not the most practical aspect of the car. Reports from the time show that passengers would have to ride with the windows up to prevent air currents from whipping around the back of their necks. Designed to be driven with the top down, Jaguar owners did not seem to care. During this time period it became apparent that Jaguar had the ability to produce post-war cars that were not only stylish, but also relatively affordable and powerful. This helped secure Jaguar’s place in the European luxury car market for generations to come.
