Chassis number 660882 is a genuine UK supplied right hand drive matching numbers car, supplied new by Botwoods Ltd to Carl Giles, the former Daily and Sunday Express cartoonist.

This most wonderful of XK120s comes complete with a vast history file and current FIA papers, presented in its original and un-restored condition, it drives exceptionally well and has a wonderful patina.

It is good to see that you think my old car "Giles" is unrestored as I took a great deal of trouble to ensure it looked that way.""Giles"" received a total bare metal respray.new door hinge pins etc. I was careful to retain the original STEEL WHEELS,BUMPERS

Lovely period photo of car being refilled, but WHY IS THERE NO CAPTION???

I suppose because those uploading the images don't always have the information to hand and the 'busyness' of life takes over!
Anyway the photo was taken on the Daily Express Rally 1952. I believe that is Giles himself to the right in sheepskin jacket.

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?
