Charles' Jaguar XK120 DHC -Development- like so many of us Charles likes the classic British Jaguars but realizes and wanted to avoid their famous mechanical and electrical weaknesses. We proposed a special project conversion of an Eagle Coachworks XK120 OTS kit into a 1953 XK120 DHC with a modern driveline and suspension. It will be equipped with a fold-down convertible top, power windows, rear jump seat, and will feature a Chrysler 4.0 L I6 (195 hp) engine, Automatic Overdrive transmission, Mustang GT disc brake rear differential and suspension, Mustang II front suspension, custom leather interior, custom interior wood work, air conditioning ....... much more. watch the car emerge !
