Classic Car Overview

This cars history: The Korean War comes and ends. A soldier comes home from the battlefield to celebrate his life and passage through such a traumatic experience and buys himself a red sportscar - and not just any red sportscar, but an XK120 Roadster. This same soldier full of life and future loses his life on the streets of his hometown in Kentucky. In mourning, his mother puts the car away in her only garage and lets it sit. A man working a pipeline through the town catches sight of the nose of a red Jaguar sitting in an open garage. He inquires and is told the story of the soldier, then proceeds to make a request to purchase the Jaguar. But he is turned away. The pipeline worker returns for five years making a request to purchase this Jaguar, but the mourning mother keeps turning him away. The man comes back one more time with his entire paycheck in his pocket and offers it up in exchange for the Jaguar. This time he succeeds, and the title is transferred to him. The car is transported to his home and tucked away in his barn. He has now become a farmer, and the car quickly becomes a lower priority. The local pharmacist and car collector hears that a farmer has some sort of sportscar in his barn. The pharmacist/car collector makes some inquiries and locates the farmer in possession of a red sportscar. He reviews the car, and an offer is made. No sale of the car is desired. The pharmacist persists for ten years, and an agreement is finally made. The red sportscar is now in a collectors possession. Restoration is needed, and he seeks out one of the best in the business to restore the car. He finds JDs British Cars in Nashville, TN (USA). Several years of toil and over $100,000 in funds are spent on restoration of the red sportscar. The result is what you are viewing. The car has 120 miles since restoration was completed.

The car is located in Lebanon, TN (just outside of Nashville, USA). $299 doc fee included. TTL, extra. This and other European collectibles may be reviewed at JPFrazier.com.
