1951 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe

In 1951 Jaguar created a XK120 closed coupe, the 1951 Jaguar XK120 Fixed Head Coupe or FHC. Considered much more luxurious than the open 2-seater Roadster, the FHC offered a full wood dashboard and roll-up windows. In 1951 the XK120 Roadster sold for $4039 USD, while the XK120 Fixed Head Coupe sold for $3850 USD. All models during this time also had removable spats, covering the rear wheel arches. The spats would be omitted if the car was fitted with the optional center-lock wire wheels because they did not give sufficient clearance. Other popular upgrades included moving to the Special Equipment version, which offered stiffer suspension, increased power and a dual exhaust system.
