I am writing to ask if any of your readers can help me to fill in the history of my XK120.
It left the works as an open two-seater in 1951, and was owned by the Swallow Raincoat Co. In 1956 it was advertised for sale in MOTOR SPORT with a photograph showing the two-plus-two body as is still fitted. The modification is made from aluminium on a wooden frame, and amongst the many colours in the layers of paint are maroon and cream. I have owned the car since 1988 and am currently arousing it from a 23-year hibernation.
