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.
