An original 1950 XK120 alloy body roadster, once converted to a drop head coupe, is to be restored to the original specification by leading Jaguar restorers Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth (CMC). The company, which has restored some of the most historic Jaguars ever build and is currently working on a secret project with the marque’s head of design Ian Callum, will take on the challenge of bringing the converted car back to its original state.

Nick Goldthorp, Managing Director of CMC, said: “This XK120 in particular, sometime fairly early on its life, has been converted into what can be described as a drop head coupe to allow for more space and comfort.

“A lot of modifications were made to the original car. The doors were altered, it has wind up windows, the front wings were flared, and even the rear of the car has what looks like Mk2 Saloon rear lights and different overriders. Someone obviously spent a lot of money to convert it.”

Nick added: “The value of these cars is in their original form, so now that we have it at CMC we will convert it back to its original spec. Luckily, all the body panels can be restored and returned to the original state. Obviously, the doors will have to be remade, the front screen and hood too but, in essence, the car is very original and rust free. It will be an exciting project.”
