Sport Roadster
Chassis #: 674111
Engine #: W 9122-8
Sold for $83,600 at 2013 Bonhams - Quail Lodge Auction.
The Jaguar XK120 was conceived and constructed in but a few months. It made its debut at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show were it caused a sensation. At the heart of the XK120 was the fabulous XK engine; a 3.4-liter 'six' that boasted twin overhead camshafts running in an aluminum-alloy cylinder head, seven main bearings and a maximum output of 160 horsepower. The XK120 defined new standards of comfort, road holding and performance for British sport cars.

This Car
In 2006, Fred Mack celebrated his 95th birthday by skydiving, and enjoyed the experience so much that in 2011, as he 'turned the ton' he did it again! Since his teens, he has owned around eighteen automobiles.

At a much younger age, Mach purchased a Slate Grey Jaguar XK120 with a red interior and chrome wire wheels. It was purchased from a dealer in Media, Pennsylvania. The dealer was able to get it for him for $3,600 instead of the going rate of $4,400. Mr. Mack still retains the Jaguar sales sheet. When he went to collect the car from Hoffman's Importers, it was white with red interior and had painted wires, the dealer explaining that he felt this was better suited to him.

From that day in 1953, the car has been in the ownership of Mr. Mack. In the early 1990s after a period of storage, when the car had sat under a plastic cover and its paint had lifted, Mr. Mack decided to refurbish the XK. The car would emerge from the restorer with new paint and a renewed interior. The work was completed in time to attend the Franklin Mint show in 1999.

The car is currently 60 years old and has been in continuous ownership from new.
