This XK on offer today is one such rare survivor of a British sports car delivered new in Britain. Records indicate that this is one of the earliest cars to come off the production line, in early 1957, the year that has been considered the happiest year in Britain of the 20th Century, famed by Prime Minister Macmillain’s quote “we’ve never had it so good” – and we can only imagine the impact this machine would have had on the streets of such an optimistic Britain, with other such historical feats in 1957 such as the first World Championship win for a British car in Formula One and the opening of the Jodrell Bank observatory.
The car as such a survivor has obviously been properly maintained and restored, with a body off chassis restoration and the chassis restored, and all mechanical systems restored and refinished as new, and this work is photographically documented, clearly indicating that much if not most of the original British car remains, a fact so important in the restoration.
Complete with the original buff log book from the time – a worthy survivor from an optimistic and excited post-war Britain.
