Car had 66000 recorded miles from new when laid up for 22 years by former owner Joseph Molnar, Hellertown PA, for reasons of being unable to change clutch without removing the engine; car was absolutely original when imported to Switzerland in 1991 but was in need of a complete restoration; car has been painstakingly restored to its original specification by present owner from 1991 - 1999; featured in Urs Schmid's "Jaguar XK 120 - The Anatomy of a Cult Object" (ISBN 3-9521878-1-X), showing duo-tone trim (this being very rare for a XK 120 FHC)

Another first for this car is that it appears to be the earliest known 120 FHC survivor fitted with SE (Special Equipment)

This may be one of the most beautiful XKs I've seen...I'm not normally a fan of red cars but this car carries it off so well I have to reconsider.

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?
