Initially, the cars were constructed of light alloy and then they were switched to conventional pressed steel, but the superb styling remained a constant. Production of all-steel bodies wouldn t begin until May 1950. At the close of production in 1954, a total of 12,055 XK120 roadsters, coupes, and drophead coupes were produced, including just 242 hand-built alloy roadsters at the start of production. Chassis 670025 was completed on November 9, 1949, and finished in black over a red leather interior. It is the 25th left-hand-drive example to have been completed by Jaguar, and of the 242 alloy-bodied cars, about 180 were produced with left-hand drive. This car was delivered to its first owner through well-known U.S. distributor Max Hoffman in New York City, and it was immediately put to use as a race car by its first owner. It is believed that during this time, the car s chassis was replaced by a later one from a 1953 Fixed Head Coupe, chassis number 679902, for improved rigidity on the track. Sometime thereafter, Paul Peattie and Ali Lugo de Armis, well-known East Coast racers and vintage sport car collectors, jointly owned the Jaguar for many years. In April, 2000
