Jaguar XK120 FHC
I had the honor of being invited to Amelia Island earlier this month! I would post some of my photos but this young lady did a much better job of it than I.

Very cool.

This one. What will be my second '120. A BHCC find that I’m awaiting delivery on. Numbers matching early one with a build date of about March/ April 1950. 670236. A real time capsule. From the estate of a Sheboygan, Wisconsin dentist since '74. I’ll post a little more in the weeks to come after it arrives. Sorry, picture isn’t the best.

Notice the rear spats over spokes with knock offs.

Love that gray! Looks good!

Thanks…that was the original color according to JHTC.

I’ve always like that color combination. Great looking car.

Love the color also. Dove grey? Did you modify the spats yourself or are they commercially available?


There was a TR3 on hand but not enough room for a 3 car garage!

The color is called Battleship Grey. The spats were a Jaguar option at that time…I understand there were only 14 built by Jaguar. Notice that they are not flat but subtly follow the body curves.

It’s not how much you’ve got, it’s the quality that counts. Just love P6s. There used to be hundreds of them around here. But - what are the two white scoops on the bonnet? Never seen those before.

Back in '77, fuel was going through changes, such that the Reid vapor pressure, at my altitude (1600 m-up) made the car vapor lock at 20C ambient… higher was even worse!

I cut holes under the scoops, and yarn-tested them to see that they would draw out hot air.

It helped. A little.

I can see the local girls swooning now. And that light bar on the roof, you could spot a jackalope at 1,000 yards!
