    Seen here:

    www.motorcities.com/contents/05B7M550810996.html

    In case that page goes away, this is the text:

    "Listed is my Professionally Restored, Very Rare, All original, Show Room Condition, 1953 Jaguar XK120 FHC (Fixed Head Coupe), 4-Spd with partial records. It comes in Classic Jaguar White Exterior with Blue Interior, VIN #679841 , with 48,702 miles on the odometer. It has been garaged its whole life, has NO mechanical or electrical issues (NO leaks or rust anywhere), and has never been involved in any accident. The paintwork is very professional. The undercarriage is unbelievably clean. It truly looks, runs and drives like a new vehicle. One will not find a nicer 1953 Jaguar XK120 anywhere on the internet. As always, the Certificate of Title is free and clear of any liens (no flood, reconditioned or salvage problems). For a more complete vehicle background, contact Carfax or the automobile manufacturer. Options: Original rebuilt 3.4 Liter 6 cylinder Dual overhead cam w/ 2 side mounted carburetors, 4-Speed Transmission (shifts super smoothly and responsively), Lester 4 Ply Polyester Bias 600/16 w/3” whitewall Tires: 90% tread Full Disclosure: There are 2 very mild, very small flaws in the paint on the edge of the hood from someone improperly closing the hood. Also, as you can see in the pictures, the burled wood, in isolated places, needs minor servicing."

    Apparently sold for $60,100 via eBay.

    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?
