Back in July of 2016 we started conversing with a new client about creating a custom XK-120 Roadster that would have a very elegant look. We located and purchased this particular core car for our client as it had great bones and was an excellent candidate for this build. His goal was to have a perfect body garbed in triple black with the best of the best of everything done to it. He desired a very deep paint job that looked 3 dimensional, sparkling against the perfect chrome. We made a very special fabricated instrument panel that was machined and lathed from scratch, done all in aluminum, and then highly polished for an exact finish. Besides making this car look amazing he wanted the car to be a great driver as well.
After 2 long years, this one of a kind lady is about ready to make the trek home and could be treated to the show circuit but will definitely see many miles from all the driving he plans to do with her. Built on August 10, 1954, she was sold out of the Hornburg Jaguar Dealership in Los Angeles, CA and started her life dressed in Cream and Red, with a Sand top.
After she was completed, he came down to take a test drive, and he was elated with the results of the creation of his dream vehicle.
Keep your eyes peeled so you can spot her on the roads, as you will not want to miss seeing this stunner! Truly one of a kind!
