  • The spectacular 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Birch Grey over a red leather interior and black folding convertible top with matching black side curtains. According to the accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate this example was completed by the Coventry works in November 1952 and was subsequently distributed through Hoffman in New York. In 1968 the XK120 was acquired by collector-owner Prof. Dean Edmonds Jr. through Auto Engineering Inc. of Lexington, Massachusetts. Mr. Edmonds, a Doctoral graduate of MIT and Professor of Physics at Boston University, is credited for his work on developing the cesium atomic clock and today is recognized with his name on the Wall of Honor in the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. A respected automotive collector and connoisseur in his own wright, his personal collection included several notable Jaguars and even a Bugatti Type 55 Super Sport! The XK120 remained in Edmonds private collection for more than 50 years! During his five decade long tenure as owner, a no-expense spared restoration was performed by Jaguar specialist Terry Larson of Mesa, Arizona. Over 2,000 man hours was invested and accompanying invoices total over $150,000! Mr. Edmonds subsequently participated in the coveted Red Rock Rally in Arizona with the XK120 and afterwards the Jaguar remained one of his most prized classic motorcars! Today the XK120 presents in spectacular restored condition and would be ideal example to use either for show or to participate in another vintage rally or tour. An incredible assortment of documentation is included with this Jaguar, including the owner’s handbook, service manual, spare parts manual, the original 1968 invoice from Auto Engineering, records dating back more than 50 years, correspondence letters and more. Simply put this is one of the best examples to be found on the market today with incredible long-term collector ownership provenance. We are proud to offer this exceptional 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates spectacular condition and ownership provenance.

    History of the Jaguar XK120The Jaguar XK120 was unveiled in 1948 at the London Motor Show. It was initially intended as a test bed for a new engine that Jaguar chairman and design czar Sir William Lyons had planned. Its stylish lines and performance XK engine quickly gained the interest of sporting minded enthusiasts across the globe. The XK’s “120” designation stood for its claimed top speed of 120 mph, an assertion that proved true, making it the world’s fastest production car at the time. Public reaction to its flowing curves and styling proportions was so positive, however, that the car was quickly put into production in 1949. From 1949 to 1954, only 6,437 open-two-seater “roadsters” were furnished for export, and today they remain the most sought after when compared to their fixed head coupe and drop head coupe counterparts.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com


    * Rates vary depending on year of car, length of term and credit score.
