Car offered at:
www.landmarkcars.co.uk/stock/Jaguar-XK-120-Alloy/6011.htm

Sellers description:
This rare Lightweight Jaguar XK120 Left Hand Drive, one out of 183 produced offered for sale.
The car requires no work and can be viewed on www.landmarkcars.co.uk

Remaining in America until the 70's, it came back to the UK where it was campaigned and upgraded by Mr. Guy Spollen to incorporate the C Type specification engine, louvered bonnet, ventilated drum brakes and an oil cooler. Subsequently sold to a German collector before being purchased by an Italian family in 1993, who incidentally were the Jaguar Distributors for Italy, to add in their substantial Jaguar collection. Almost immediately it received a thorough professional ground up restoration courtesy of their own Jaguar technicians. Rebuilt mechanics throughout, fresh full interior, re-chromed and polished bright work, a full re-paint, were all part of this restoration.The impact of this Jaguar and its world wide appeal was not lost on the legendary New York and newly appointed Jaguar distributor Max Hoffman either, as he ordered this early XK120 in October 1949 and was actually the 17th LHD car built.It is no exaggeration to say that the Jaguar XK 120 will go down in history as one of the great car designs of all time. Its beautiful styling and fine engine are part of the story.

If it is an alloy, should it not have rubber blocks under the outer windscreen pillars?

It is definitely an alloy and does have the thick rubber blocks the sharp triangular V at lower edge quite visible so happy its an alloy
I just want to know Where, When and how someone has determined its 17

It certainly has the alloy features of the round holes in the inner front wings, but I still do not see any THICK rubber blocks under the windscreen pillars!

Odd.

I was specifically referring to the B&W period photo in all my postings and quite clearly this is an alloy car.
The colour photos show a standard windscreen pillar grommet which means someone was to lazy to make/source correct ones can't quite tell if the pillar at the top is correct for alloy car.
looking at the pics it looks like the front brake vents were put in with an axe!

Added picture from Mille MIglia 2014. Looks like the correct pillars have been restored.

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?
