I have owned this since 1974. Was racer most of it's life. Exterior silver/gray. Interior gray. Nice driver with much modification mechanically. Titles as 1952 but build is 1/1953. Was off raod for most of the last 30 years. Stalking the roads around the desert now.

New GM 350-375HP..Aluminum radiator. Borg T-10. 3.54 rear appears to be a locker. Both rear wheels spin on power. This car has not had a JAG motor since at least 1972. I bought it when already converted to a GMC 6 with 3spd when put on the street for the first time.
It was a typical racer..no interior..dash stipprd with just toggles and tach..oil press gauge. Bladder in trunk..with rubber fouling lines. Weird brakes..all four were fronts..with manual adjust only. Back on brake housing have large vents with screens..don't remember if all 120s had this.
Roll bar holes behind seats..looks like exhaust exited through left side wing cutouts.
Had two radiators..second mounted in right wing with screening. I left this there as I might do second radiator there and remote oil filters and coolers on left.

Do you mean "titles as 1953 it was certainly built in January 1952

According to JDHT..1953 production started with 673389. That would make this the 7th 1953 built. I am not much of a historian..but from the JDHT site it appears to be a 1953. Am I reading the chart incorrectly ?

Don't 52 OTS have the chrome bolt on wing lights ? Mine are as on the '53..welded...are there '52s OTS with welded wing lights ?

My mistake. Anonymous is right this was built 1953 January therefore in cannot be
registered in 1952. The gearbox revised number is still doubtful. The best fit would be JL 14918

Peter..I am Anonymous..and Docc. I forget to put my name in some of the posts. I corrected the gearbox..but will check the plate tomorrow. That plate has a dent right where the last number is..and looked like an extra digit.
