Many would argue that the Jaguar XK120 line was responsible for breathing new life into the Jaguar brand after World War II. With over 12,000 XK120’s produced throughout its seven year production run, with more than 60 percent of them being exported to America, this would go a long way in helping a country that was still recovering from half a decade of war. While orders came from every continent, the 1954 Jaguar XK120 models (and other year models) were particularly popular among Americans who favored the boisterous curvature, unyielding power, and quality craftsmanship. And, with a price nearly half of what you would pay for a car of comparable power and stature, it is easy to understand why buyers were so enthralled in the 1950’s and even today.
