Needs Mohr Cylinders: 1951 Jaguar XK120 Kit Car

When somebody says "kit car" I instantly think of Cobras, 550 Spyders, 356 Speedsters, Lotus things, and Kustom Fieros made to look like Ferraris...but I have never really thought about Jags.  Particularly XK120 looking Jags from the 1950s that just need an injection of V8 to get going.  Now, I know what you're thinking. You're gonna stick a Chebby 350 mated to a TH350...but don't do it.  Slap some sense into yourself and get a V12 -- maybe a 6 liter BMW N73 V12 good for 439 horsepower or a  6 liter W12 from a VW/Audi  also good for 400+ horsepower or be a real man and drop a Rolls Royce Meteor V12  which is a 27 liter tank engine for those who've been out of the loop.  GET INTO THE GAME, SON!  Find this 1951 Jaguar XK120 Kit Car here on eBay offered for $19,900 in Miami, FL.

That last picture is 27 liters of Axis killing power right there.  See a better way to powered an old Jag...that is actually a fake.  Maybe the 3.9 liter V8 from the Lincoln LS?  Oohhhhh burn.  tips@dailyturismo.com

  1. Something about the shade of red (per listing) of the interior tells me I must be looking into a remote viewing orgasmatron ..

    1. Looks like a copy/paste error. In the picture that show the back of the car, you can see another one parked outside. White with red interior... :)

  3. it makes a lot of sense to buy a fake for $20K and then install your own engine/tranni. Real easy to install AC in an XK120 when someone else does it! :-) it does not matter how much you spend on it, it will never be a real historic, so it is a waste of money.

  4. Real Jaguar V12s aren't that expensive to buy... although ones in good working order may be.

    Alternatively, didn't someone mention that Maserati V8s are going for dirt cheap? :)

  5. Needs a straight six to sound right. A Jag AJ6 would be my choice, or one of those Toyota things.

  6. Pretty car! Maybe one of those Buick/Rover V-8's?

  7. Gotta go with a Cummins 2.8L turbo diesel crate engine. 160hp and over 300 ft-lb torque. Ok it weighs 500 pounds and why? why not?

  8. 2JZ... oh yea! I really don't see how you can sell that much... for 20k. The kit, parts, paint? Wow. I swear that interior looks black, but he's says it's red!?
