I think this is the Frank Gardener fibreglass special which has been rebuilt and is now in the UK

The rebuilt Frank Gardner Fiberglass XK 120 Jaguar was a recreation of his original car built by Frank Gardner to use in Historic racing in I believe the 90's, NOT the actual original race car that he built in the mid 1950's.

That original historic Fiberglass xk120 Jaguar body still exists and is now in Victoria Australia.

It was in South Australia for many years after being restored and turned into a road car in the early 90's.

I believe the current owner wants to restore the Jaguar to how it was in 1956 as it had been modified when it was restored in the early 90's to make it a road going car.

As far as im aware it has had its fiberglass flip up front glassed over and now has a functional bonnet more along the lines of a standard XK120.

What many people don't realize is that, the original chassis the fiberglass XK120 body was mounted to was actualy a cut down 1953 Jaguar Mark 7 chassis, NOT an XK120 chassis.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
