On the 29th October 1952 this fantastic Jaguar XK 120 OTS Special Equipment was supplied by Hoffman, the New York Jaguar dealer, to a Mr May. It was found after being stored away by the family for over 25 years. Towards the end of 2008 the car arrived in the Netherlands, where it underwent a full overhaul and restoration. Taking a number of years to complete, the XK acquired its Dutch registration in 2013. Since then it has remained in the same hands. The restoration comes very well documented with a plethora of invoices showing that neither time nor money were spared in bringing this car back to top-quality condition. The fabulous bodywork is straight with the body panels fitting perfectly. The paintwork and decorative chrome work are simply sublime. This Special Equipment XK has chrome rims and even has heated seats. This XK has its original, matching numbers, engine. It has the Heritage certificate, confirming every parts number. It has been finished in black with a high-quality burgundy-red leather interior trim and matching black hood, a gorgeous combination! This is with out a shadow of a doubt, one of the most beautifully styled and sportive two-seater roadsters built in the ‘50’s!

Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where we currently have our second workshop and detailing shop.
Moving to Brummen
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.
During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.
As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason we participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.
A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both our genes and the identity of this family owned business.
