Following our exchanges on my chassis, ( see 669118), mine is probably this one 669111.
As said, I have the chassis with suspension.

Final question : What is French registration number I presume the car is with you

Hi Peter,
The car is not registrered , it is a chassis / Suspension only and I will probably be building it up in the coming years.

Auction description:

The Sale of British Marques 2019

1954 Jaguar XK120 FHC

Lot No.: 445

Registration: MCR 334

Chassis Number: 669111

Engine Number: F1478-8

Number of cylinders: 6

CC: 3442

Year of Manufacture: 1954

RHD/LHD: Right Hand Drive

Estimate (£): 35,000 - 45,000 

Sold originally through Wadham, Southampton in 'British Racing Green' with a Suede Green interior

A rare and interesting project, matching numbers and right-hand drive

Discovered in Denmark by the current owner and brought back to the UK with all taxes paid

3.4-litre 'six' embodying the best of period design, boasting twin overhead camshafts running in an aluminium-alloy cylinder head, seven main bearings, and a respectable output of 160bhp

Jaguar only made 194 right-hand drive XK120 fixed head coupes (this is #111) and there are probably less than 100 RHD cars surviving, the majority being left-hand drive. We understand that only 24 of those 194 left the factory finished in British Racing Green. These RHD cars were very difficult to obtain and, in a process that would be repeated for the first 50 E-Types some years later, owners were 'selected' on the basis of their celebrity or success in motor racing. For example

669005 Peter Whitehead one of the 1951 Le Mans winners

669006 Ian Stewart of Ecurie Ecosse

669024 J Mainsbridge won the Alpine Cup in 1953

669066 Neville Duke test pilot and holder of the World Airspeed Record

669108 Patsy Burt hillclimb competitor 

669120 Ninian Sanderson who won the 1956 Le Mans with Ron Flockhart

669125 Jack Sears

669186 Jimmy Stewart older brother of Jackie Stewart

This, right-hand drive, matching numbers, XK120 FHC was despatched on the 12/01/54 to its first owner, a Mr Pillon in Southampton and was finished in British Racing Green with a Suede Green interior. Discovered by our vendor in Denmark, '669111' returned to these shores recently in order to be restored. Other pressing commitments mean that this lovely XK120 is available for someone else to return it to its former glory.

This is a very rare car and probably one of the last unrestored examples.

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?
