Car is shown amoung photos of 2001 XK Club Day. It is labeled as the "The Montlhery car" so I must assume it was the car that set the long distance records.

LWK707 - Known for its unique registration plate, this XK120 Coupe ran the '7 days and 7 nights' endurance run at Montlhery with drivers Moss, Fairman, Hadley and Johnson. LWK707 ran for a full 7 days during which the car averaged just over 100mph. It remains in remarkably original condition to this day.

Car was restored by CMC
LWK 707 -'Seven Days And Seven Nights' Car
Driven by Sir Stirling Moss, Jack Fairman, Leslie Johnson and Bert Hadley, this relatively standard XK120 Fixed Head Coupe was taken out to the banked Montlhery track near Paris in 1952, and succeeded in averaging over 100mph for seven days and seven nights, covering over 16,851 miles. The car is in lovely period condition and CMC were asked by the Jaguar Heritage Trust to carry out a sympathetic Jaguar restoration, retaining all the unique features and lovely patina.
On LWK 707 we rebuilt the right side of the car after it had been involved in an accident at Goodwood. Due to the extensive damage, we were unable to save the front wing and driver's door although we did manage to obtain an original factory wing as a replacement. The damage extended into the bulkhead and we had to mount the body on our jig in order to pull the body straight.

the 3 photos noted as "Restoration Metalwork" are of course not restoration, the very original car never needed restoring.
These are repairs after some idiot crashed it at the Goodwood festival of speed.
Whoever let this person drive the car needs a bollocking as well.
Hopefully the person who crashed the car never gets to drive another new or old jaguar again!!

Couldn't agree more with 'Anonymous'.
This was a lovely original old car, complete with little touch ups here and there and looked absolutely fabulous before the Goodwood idiot altered it. Pre accident it was easy to imagine this car doing its 7 days and 7 nights with Moss, Fairman, Johnson & Hadley. Now it looks like just another restored 120. Shame.
Shame on the so called 'custodians' of this Historic vehicle.
