This car is listed in "Jaguar Driver" magazine October 1980 as being owned by J BOYCE of Middlesex. Registration number 120 XKT, colour black. Imported to England in1952 and bought in 1968 for £70!!

Car originally delivered to Delacroix Distributors in Paris, first owner being Cornell W. Acheson. I bought the car on 25-06-68, for £70. Shortly after, a chum bought HBC 226 for £50 but conked out on the rebuild when he discovered a most impressive squirrel-cache of nuts in the airbox. I bought it from him, pinched the bumpers, grille, and other sundries that my car lacked, selling it on for £35. About 20 years later I discovered it was ex-Salvadori. Bother.

Should have added that I fitted a three-carb 3.8 engine from a Mark 10, with an all-synchro box with overdrive. Rack & pinion steering from an XK140. And a limited slip diff (3.31), XK150 discs, rear Konis, and so on. Idea was to make a sort of 3.8 XK150S but to keep the original XK120 roadster appearance.

Alas, in 1991 landed my self in a house or car scenario and one of them had to go - no contest of course.

Does anyone know if the Cornell W Acheson, who first owned this car in Paris 1950, was the American author of that name?

Delighted to find details of this car. I am a volunteer captioner for the London Picture Archive, and I will be able to add some detail to the description of one of the photos allocated to me, taken in 1967.

Please can we see this 1967 photo ?

Well, I found this 1967 photo with no help from “Geoff”.
I should like to upload the photo, but worry about copyright issues leading me to be clapped in irons and transported to Botany Bay.

Apologies - if I was supposed to receive a notification of a reply I never saw it. I'm not sure that the relocation to Australia arrangement still pertains but like all picture archives the LMA protects its assets. You can of course quote the URL; the new description is not yet uploaded - awaiting proof reading in case of smelling pistakes. Dead impressed that you found the picture, though.

Here is the URL for the LPA ! It shows the old girl in 1967 in a South London side street. Shortly before I bought it in ‘68 for £70, it changed hands for £15.

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?
