XK 120 Explored makes it far more practical to buy and restore a disassembled or incomplete XK, because the book provides these vital visual references to what every part looks like and where it should go. There are also many body and chassis dimensions, and paintwork and wiring in colour. Even if you won't be restoring an XK 120, this book gives an absolutely unique analysis of how the XK 120 was made and assembled.
In addition to the drawings, there is a section by Paul Skilleter on how the XK 120 has been regarded over the years in terms of maintenance and restoration, and how it grew from being just an obsolete old car to becoming one of the world’s most popular classic British sports cars.
XK 120 Explored is now even better, with a host of revised plates and various new ones. The existing high quality of Bernard Viart’s amazing drawings has been maintained, but now with many new details added thanks to the input of leading XK expert Terry McGrath. The new edition concentrates on these magnificent plates as we feel that the general history of the XK 120 is now well covered in other publications. Nevertheless, this book remains a block-buster at 416 pages, with some 2600 original drawings. And, unusually for a british published book, it comprehensively covers both lhd and rhd models of the xk 120 plus all body styles!
