ASHLEY LOVERING’S CAR FOR SEPTEMBER HAS A TWIST IN ITS CLASSIC TAIL

     Keith and Celia from Mumbles are the proud owners of a very fine aristo-car. The car is a semi replica of a Jaguar XK120. It is built over the running gear of a Jaguar XJ6 1968 to 1984 model. A space frame chassis is used and is then fitted with a fibreglass body shell.

     The car was built over a couple of years from 1999 to 2001 and was not an easy task as quite a number of parts had to be fabricated.

    The later versions of the kit that are available now – it has been in production for 30 years – have a lot more prefabricated parts.

    Since completing the car, Keith and Celia have regularly used it to take part in shows and road runs. The car has also been used for trips to Ireland and Brittany and is great to drive – it has a 50s feel but with the benefit of more advanced suspension and disc brakes. The road holding and driving is much better than the original.
