Rally Cars for sale

   Rally Preparation Services are delighted to offer for sale this gorgeous Jaguar XK120 OTS.

Unveiled to the world as an Open Two-Seater (OTS) in 1948 the William Heynes designed car was the first sportscar produced by the rebranded Jaguar company and was an instant hit. Claimed as being the fastest production car of the time with a top speed of 120 mph, these well engineered cars added to the ongoing success record for the Jaguar marque in competition. The XK120 gave Jaguar many racing achievements along the way and a highest place finish in the Mille Miglia rally for any British sportscar.

Design features by Heynes adding to the overall greatness of the cars included the outstanding XK dual overhead camshaft 160 bhp engine, independent torsion bar suspension at the front end coupled with semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear.

Recently brought back to its glory by the team here at Rally Preparation Services, works have included refreshing to the engine, transmission steering and brakes making this lovely car something to really enjoy once more, as a Sunday driver or maybe a classic rally car….

The unmarked exterior paintwork and the red leather work together to give that true classic car look and feel. Then, when the almost raucous exhaust note erupts at start up you can almost sense the heritage from the racetrack shouting to get going.

With documented history of ownership from its manufacture through to today the vendor also tells us that his history file shows that Irish racing driver Billy Bradshaw owned and used the car between 1954 and 1957. He went on to win the 1956 Walter Sexton Memorial Trophy, the overall Irish racing championship, and from a press cutting it appears that Billy had done this after having fitted this stunning Jaguar with a genuine C type cylinder head which he had acquired for £100!

The car is currently with Rally Preparation Services sister Company, the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection. All viewings and test drives welcomed through direct contact with Rally Preparation Services.
