Jaguar XK120 FHC (1951-1954) specifications

Jaguar XK120 FHC (1951-1954) specifications Classic and Performance Car

The coupe Jaguar XK120 offers great value, especially when compared to the expensive roadsters


Once Jaguar had caught up with XK120 Roadster demand and production of steel-bodied examples was running smoothly, it developed the coupé to widen appeal. Aside from the obvious addition of a roof, the biggest difference between this and the Roadster is the use of a mostly steel floorpan, in place of plywood. As with all XK120s there was an SE option, which added 20bhp through the use of high-lift cams, uprated valve springs and a lightened flywheel. Wire wheels were fitted to SEs, and were a popular retro-fit on non-SE models.
