1951 was a big year in the life of the Jaguar XK120 series as it marked the release of the Fixed-Head Coupe or FHC, a closed version of its roadster counterpart. This FHC featured deluxe appointment including a wood-veneer dashboard and door tops, and leather seats. Additionally, the nearly vertical steering column was now telescopically adjustable to suit either shorter or taller drivers. The 1951 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe easily met the demand for a car that was as civilized as the Mark VII saloon, without sacrificing the performance to the sports car so many buyers craved. Jaguar also gave buyers the option of wire wheels like those being used in an increasing number of Jaguar competition cars to assist in brake cooling. These wheels could be fitted to either the roadster or the FHC and are sill desirable to this day.
Between 1950 and 1954, a total of 7,614 Roadster versions of the Jaguar XK120 were produced, including the 242 that were aluminum-bodied. Between 1951 and 1954, however, some 2,680 Fixed Head Coupes were manufactured, making the FHC more rare than its Roadster counterpart.
