Note the chassis number listed 660579, registered EFV533, at this auction was likely an error for this car. As the body number F2474 is correct for 660379.

Auctioned at Theodore Bruce, Melbourne - The Motorclassica Auction Oct 2016.
Details from the auction:
1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster, Barn Find
Chassis No. 660579
Unused for many years and with one family owner for almost 40 years. Factory RHD.
Preserved in amazing structural condition, this XK120 would appear to be a straightforward and rewarding project for the next owner.
Complete with hood, side curtains and tonneau, and even the full set of 3 keys for bonnet, boot and ignition. The key tag bears the details of the celebrity owner in the 1970's.
Estimate $ 78,000-90,000
Unsold at auction but later advertised on the web and sold to the UK.

Due to an error by the Victorian Motor Registration Branch in Australia the history of this car was recorded under chassis 660579 in The Jaguar XK120 In The Southern Hemisphere by Elmgreen and McGrath. Body F2474 is correct for 660379. The current engine in the car is from a UK delivered XK140 FHC G6616-8S of which there is no current record. Sold new by Henly’s in London, but no first owner details held by the factory. Recorded as with Cliff Portwood – a recording artist – of East Brighton in Melbourne in 1976, later registered IMS 111 and 461(Victoria). Original engine W 2561-7 which has been reported as now fitted to XK120 660930. G6616-7S said to be fitted to this car was originally fitted to 804585, dispatched new to Ritchies in Scotland.

I've recently bought 660379 and had it shipped it back to the UK from Australia - it's currently being restored. It's chassis 660379, body F2474 but it was initially black not bronze, with biscuit and red interior (source = Jaguar Heritage). Reg no. IMS111 was added when it was exported to Australia. I'm currently seeking it's original UK reg no. if you can advise. Manufacture date was 30 Nov 1950, original distributor was Henlys of London.
Please email me if you need any other details.
