THIS EARLY STEEL BODIED JAGUAR XK120 (NO. 670499, built July 20, 1950) IS A "NUMBER MATCHING" EXAMPLE. IT IS THE 314 LEFT-HAND DRIVE CAR MADE AFTER THE TRANSITION FROM ALL ALUMINUM BODIED CARS (April 1950 at 670172). THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THIS EXAMPLE VS LATER XK 120s:
EXTERIOR:
NO FOOTWELL AIR VENTS (ADDED 2/4/51 WITH 671097, REF 120 GUIDE P35)
FRONT RUNNING LIGHTS ARE SEPARATE CHROME PLATED UNITS WITH SINGLE FILAMENT BULBS
NO TURN SIGNALS (Ref 120 Guide p. 37 & 41: Turn Signals and revised side lamp housing with 672927 on 9/25/52)
HEADLIGHTS ARE THE EARLY "TRIBAR" (PF.770) STYLE . LATER (1952) U.S. DELIVERED EXAMPLES HAD SEAL BEAM BULBS INSTALLED BY THE DEALER (Ref Parts Manual p. 84 P.F.770 C.2625/3 AND 120 GUIDE 34/37)
ORIGINAL GRILLE HAS EARLY "RAISED FLUTES" SLATS ("HUMPS" AT CENTER OF EACH SLAT)
TOP IS "SHORT STYLE" WITH TWO SNAPS PER SIDE (LATER ONES AFTER 670730 HAVE THREE SNAPS PER SIDE - ref 120 guide p. 31) Early snaps were cadmium plated, later were black.
REAR WINDOW (BACK LIGHT) IS FIXED IN TOP ( Ref Parts Manual Plate U.116), AFTER 3/51 IT COULD BE OPENED)
EXHAUST EXITED ON LEFT SIDE UNTIL MAY 1952, THEN OUT THE BACK (ref parts man 44 T.74)
FENDER MIRRORS WERE NOT INSTALLED AT THE FACTORY. REFER TO PERIOD JAGUARS LITERATURE AND PARTS MANUAL (Plate U p. 79 does not show fender mirrors.) (Ref Schmid vol 1, p. 143 "Cars were usually supplied without wing mirrors, these being separately by-packed together with fitting instructions for the dealers." )
FRONT NUMBER PLATE (C.4182) WAS PROVIDED FOR US MARKET, TO BE INSTALLED BY DEALER IF REQUIRED.
REAR WING (FENDER) PIPING was "made of 1 11/16 wide Rexine strips with cord and rubber cores (BD.813, p.72 parts manual) and was painted the color of the car" (Schmid V1 p. 233), PVC was used after mid-April 1953. also see Viart p.405
INTERIOR:
NO TURN SIGNAL LEVER ON STEERING WHEEL CENTER (ref 120 guide p. 41)
CHROMED TOP FRAME (HOOD STICK) (ref Parts Manual P. 78 U.115 BD.3317) AND SEAT BASES/PIVOT ARMS
EARLY HEADLIGHT SWITCH AND LIGHTER (ref Plate V p. 90A, # 19 and 25)
EARLY LAND SPEED PLAQUE (132.6 MPH RECORD)
REAR VIEW MIRROR HAS SHORT STEM (UNTIL SEPT 1950 , No 670608 THEN LONGER STEM Ref . Parts Manual p.66, C.2887 and Plate U.22 opposite p.79B)
SEATS ARE "BISCUIT w RED PIPING" AS SHIPPED (See Heritage Trust Data Sheet) WITH CURVED BACKS.

ENGINE BAY (Engine W 1763-8):
VALVE COVERS HAVE NO STUDS AT FRONT OF ENGINE (Changed in Aug '52 Ref 120 guide p. 24)
SPARK PLUG WIRING ROUTES TO BACK OF ENGINE AND DOES NOT HAVE INSULATORS AT PLUGS (Ref 120 Guide p.19, Jaguar Journal May-June 2015 p. 13-15 and parts manual plate B #109)
SPARK PLUG WIRE SLEVE IS UNIQUE TO EARLY MODELS (parts manual Plate B #110)
COIL IS UNDER INTAKE MANIFOLD, HORZ. OUTLET DIST CAP TO ENG. W 5509, 11/6/52 120 guide p.27
ALUMINUM FAN (ref parts manual p. 6A & Plate A with engine W1763-8 and 120 guide p. 24)
STARTING "CARB" IS ATTACHED TO REAR CARBURITTOR FLOAT CHAMBER (LATER ARE SEPARATE) WITH EXPOSED TERMINALS (ref parts manual Plate D opposite p. 14 to eng. W.3449)
HOOD (BONNET) SUPPORT ROD (stay) IS CHROME PLATED (120 Guide p. 21, plated up to 671098)
GLASS RESERVOIR FOR BRAKE CYLINDER (SINGLE PISTON DESIGN p. 36 on parts manual and Plate R opposite p. 39) Top could be either black with silver cap or all silver (nickel plated).
NO HEATER (began in Sept. 1951 with 671493 - p. 63A of Parts Manual & 120 Guide p. 21 & 36)
GREASE GUN C.991 IS TECALEMIT "PLASTIGUN" TO NOVEMBER 1951 (INSTALLED IN ENGINE BAY)
HORN RELAY IS EARLY TYPE (SB.40/L.2) WITH THREE CONNECTORS (to 671097 parts p.86)
FUSE BLOCK IS ORIGINAL TO CAR (37110A 5 50 Model SF4 Type L16) with black finish cover.
TRUNK (BOOT) & TOOLS/ACCESORIES:
LOCATION OF TIRE PUMP IS UNIQUE TO EARLY MODEL (Left Side of Boot) (ref Schmid Vol 2 p. 88). Pump has correct green hose.
CHROME PLATED BOOT LID SUPPORT ROD
EARLY JACK (BOLT-ON INSERTION ARM C.2953) (parts Manual p. 91 and Viart p.471, Schmid Vol 1p.185, Vol 2 p. 89)
TOOL ROLL: WHILE ALL VARIATIONS HAVE THE SAME REF NO. C.2882, I BELIEVE THE CORRECT ONE FOR THIS 1950 CAR IS THE RED JUTE LINED TYPE ( SEE ORIGINAL, Viart p. 472 , Schmid Vol 1 p.188). (The roll that came with the car is red jute and I believe is original to the car.)

I would have thought that the seats should be all red, not just with with red piping.

But the car is a beauty.

Jeremy,

If the Heritage Certificate (not shown) indicates biscuit and red, it usually means the prominent color is red with the seat flutes and dash (OTS) being biscuit. Some show cars and special order cars have been observed with contrasting piping. Nitpicking one part on what appears to be a well restored car, I think the side curtains are from a later model

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?
