According to a Jaguar Cars Limited Production Trace Certificate on file, this particular example was completed on 26th May 1954 and despatched by the factory fifteen days later. A home market `Special Equipment' car, its first owner is recorded as C.J.D. Pink Esq of Derby Road, Worcester. How long Mr Pink retained it is unclear but by late 1964 the Drophead Coupe was registered to Francis Norris Esq of Saltram Crescent, London. Thereafter it is known to have passed through the hands of Graham Lucas Esq. of Brislington, Bristol, Martin Riley Esq. of Congleton, Cheshire, John Lloyd Esq of Nantwich, Cheshire and S.I. Felgate Esq and S.A. Bagnall Esq of Hampton, Middlesex. Thought to have been taken off the road sometime during the late 1960s - the last taxation stamp borne by its accompanying green continuation logbook dates from 31st August 1967 - the XK120 was reissued with the Worcestershire number plate `NAB 399' on 11th September 1987. A little under two years later, the two-seater was sold to previous keeper, Steven Carpenter Esq of Ashford Kent, by Eagle Racing of nearby Maidstone for £50,000.

The subject of an extensive engine and gearbox overhaul by marque specialist Derek Bullimore (reground crankshaft, new timing chain, main / big-end bearings, valve guides / springs, camshaft bearings, piston rings, core plugs, exhaust manifolds plus refurbished dynamo, starter motor and carburettors etc), the Jaguar was then entrusted to Classic Coachbuilders of Sittingbourne, Kent for a 2,700 hour `chassis up' restoration. As well as a thorough cosmetic makeover (new ash frame, numerous replacement body panels, re-plated / renewed brightwork, retrimmed interior, bare metal respray, fresh hood / hood bag etc), the Drophead Coupe received attention to its wiring, instrumentation, back axle, brakes and fuel system etc plus a cavity wax injection treatment. Given its first post-restoration service on 20th August 1993, `NAB 399' subsequently graced the pages of The Times newspaper during May 1995 as part of an article written by Lord Montagu of Beaulieu in which he praised the XK120 as one of the best dozen cars that made Britain Great.

Entering the current ownership via a Brooks auction at Olympia on 22nd February 1997, the Drophead Coupe has since been treated to a reconditioned starter, new trafficator boss and replacement propshaft couplings etc. Sparingly used over the last twelve years, the Jaguar has formed part of a large private collection. Finished in the highly desirable combination of British Racing Green with beige leather upholstery, it is described by the vendor as being in "A1" condition with regard to its engine, four-speed manual gearbox, electrical equipment, bodywork and paintwork, while he rates the interior trim as "excellent". Reportedly retaining its original engine, this rare home market `Special Equipment' XK120 Drophead Coupe is worthy of close inspection.

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?
