1954 Jaguar XK120SE OTS. Original photos of the car when brought to Seattle new, late 1953. For you Seattle folk, note Montlake drawbridge in the background in the largest photo, and all the expensive undeveloped land between the car and the bridge. Upper photos of the original factory red car in LA when picked up at Hornburg Jaguar new. Note the Dunlop tire stickers, and the rear bumper mounting brackets painted body color from the factory. Lower photos of the car are in North Seattle in the fall of 2003. Exactly 50 years after the original photos. The elderly gentleman is the original owner of the car, who I tracked down after a good deal of detective work, painfully trying to duplicate the 1953 photo when he proudly posed  with his new purchase at Montlake.

1954 Jaguar XK120SE OTS. One of the several trophies that have managed to stay with the car for 50 years.

1954 Jaguar XK120 OTS. Still some detective work to do, but I believe the fourth car in line is my OTS, Arlington airfield races, circa 1961.

I changed the look a bit with this car as well. Removed the normal XK120 windscreen assembly and installed the factory racing windscreen as supplied with “SE” cars. This windscreen has managed to stay with this car over 50 years. It was freshened and painted to match the carbody. Also fitted are the original blanking plates to the cowl as raced in the 50’s. New Firestone radials and “blacked out” factory wire wheels. Replicated decals to old photos were made and installed. The original, extremely tattered seats were rebuilt in black leather to complete the look. I elected to leave the Raydyot mirror in place on the bulkhead as it was fitted early in it’s racing life. The alternative is a DHC mirror fitted with the wind deflector in alloy, like the racing windscreen.
