    I must qualify my previous post. Although this is the last number of the series it was built in October 1953 as
    681241 but for some reason re-numbered as the last. The last 120 Fixed head LHD built in July 1954 was actually 681483 which is currently lost.

    We have this same chassis # in our 120 that we have had for 12+ years. In Sarasota Fl, all original car, I will peruse a heritage certificate now that I know one of the two cars in not correct.

    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?
