Discovered that my 1954 XK 120 had Gabriel shock absorbers at the front that somewhere in the past replaced the original Newton versions. Now I read in an old topic on this Forum that there were 2 (potential) US replacements for the XK 120: the Monroe 32143 and the Gabriel 82018.
However my Gabriel has the number 18123 on it (see photo) but I cannot find any reference of this number.
Just out of curiosity: is there any US “oldtimer” that has a Gabriel catalog with the 18123 still in it? What was the original application? Or was it a genuine Jaguar XK 120 aftermarket version by Gabriel? Looking at the later “Classic” Gabriel shockers with totally different numbers, these might well be from the Sixties.
For those interested: they still work fine!!
