This wonderful UK supplied Jaguar XK120, KRU 600 was sourced by us and sold to a UK based collector prior to even marketing the vehicle. The previous owner has been a serial car restorer for almost 50 years, and shares, quite literally a lifetime’s knowledge and experience. Many of his projects became daily drivers for most of the year, which meant that each project incorporated upgrades to ensure usability and reliability in modern traffic conditions. His personal measure of success was treading a fine line between presenting a car that appeared to be completely original down to the correct date stamps on the windscreen, whilst still being capable of safely achieving journey times almost in line with modern cars. This car has covered 3000 miles since the restoration was completed and the car is truly exceptional and the very best XK120 we have ever sold.
Research was carried out into the cars history and the Jaguars first owner Mr Vernon Maitland turned out be approaching 90 and living in the USA. He was contacted and Mr Vernon was reunited with car that he bought new in 1950, in Poole Dorset. The car also has some early racing history but taken off the road for over 50 years prior to the rebuild. This exceptional Jaguar XK was sold complete with a published book which covers the complete restoration story of the car which was last driven in the 1960's. KRU 600 is a very special car and we are delighted to have placed it with a collector who will meticulously maintain the car.
