    This particular car, chassis number '660498', was manufactured on 24th December 1950 and originally was finished in Birch Grey with Biscuit and Red interior trim and Gunmetal convertible top. It was first registered as 'LXO 122' on 12th March 1951 by Henly's, London to a Mr John Graeme Dutton-Forshaw. He sold the car on 5th April 1955 to a Mr Roy Bygrave Voller, who in turn sold it to The Right Honourable, The Lord Doune on 12th July 1967 with only 17,082 miles on the odometer. The XK remained in Lord Doune's classic car collection in his Perthshire museum until the present owner purchased it in 1999 (see correspondence on file). In 1999 the car entered the Jabbeke speed trials 50th anniversary meeting, and because of its relatively dormant life in the Doune museum over the previous 32 years, was not driven hard, finishing in 48th place out of the 50 invited entries. To date it has been driven only 30,350 miles.

    While in the vendor's care the XK has benefited from extensive maintenance work as well as regular servicing by the highly respected marque specialists Twyford Moors Classic Cars. Works carried out include an engine rebuild in June 1999 (by Sigma Engineering) and a re-spray in 2006. In addition, the car has been upgraded with Jaguar disc brakes, re-bushed steering and suspension, adjustable shock absorbers and a Kenlowe electric cooling fan. All bills, records and MoT certificates are contained within the comprehensive history file together with a JDHT certificate, original old-style buff logbook, current MoT certificate and a V5C registration document.

    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?
