    First 120M in 1957. Two followed. Now, after some 30 years, the call became too great and am now the caretaker of S673499.

    I saw this car today (5/2/08) in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina where it is being offered at a sealed bid benefit auction. It looks much the same as in the pictures above. It has a Heritage Certificate. The data plate, engine and body numbers are correct. The gearbox number according to the plate is JL15295, but I didn't confirm that it is still in place.

    Ebay item 5/16/19

    www.ebay.com/itm/1953-XK-120/283284144465

    Classified ad price: $97,000, car now said to be in Dallas, Texas, seller classics-rescue, 68kmiles.

    Seller's description:

    1953 Jaguar XK120 OTS This Jaguar is a lovely example just out of long term ownership. This is a matching numbers unit that shows very, very well. It’s a older restoration that was done in the early 2000s and the previous owners has over $130k into the effort. Being an older restoration, it has been driven and enjoyed. This is not a garage queen and shows some “patina” from use. I would describe it as a strong #2 car.

    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?
