Clark Gable Jaguar XK120 Roadster
RP Exotics is pleased to offer this 1952 Jaguar XK 120 Roadster, the last and final of three models previously owned by Hollywood superstar Clark Gable. Only ~6400 open two seat models were produced. However, this particular XK120 is made exponentially more special by the fact that it is the one and only Jaguar XK 120 to have ever been modified by George Barris of Barris Kustoms. Barris added his refined and sophisticated taste to the already stunning looks of the Jaguar, shaving the headlight spears and smoothing out the front fenders. He also shaved the boot lid in the rear and relocated the license plate, leaving an incredibly smooth tail save for the elegant handle. Harris also sourced and fitted a custom-made Carson hard top revised to have an extra two inches of height for Gable’s relatively large frame. This amazing example is finished in Barris Gold Metallic Flake paint over a Red Leather interior with matching wool carpets and is truly beautiful! It has been shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the Greenwich Concours, and two Amelia Island Concours! It shows only 17,984 miles and is ready for a new home!
This XK120 is equipped with the original numbers-matching 3.4L inline-six with twin SU carburetors and a set of porcelain-coated headers. It’s attached to a four-speed manual gearbox that sends power to the rear wheels. The car was restored by Jim Kakuska of JK Restorations in the early 2010s, and is in great condition!
The vehicle also comes with a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, tool roll, original fitted luggage, a photo album including photos of George Barris and Clark Gable with the car, and documentation from Barris Kustoms.
