Car to return to auction 6/16
FROM THE ESTATE OF THE LATE JOHN CALVERT
1950 JAGUAR XK120 3.4-LITRE OTS ROADSTER
Chassis No: 671073
Engine No: W 2381-8
For Sale by Auction June 19th 2016.
Auction Estimate: £42,000 - £52,000
John Calvert bought this car in 1995 at Christie's Melbourne following its importation to Brisbane in 1994 and restoration by Wolf Grodd. Having competed so successfully from 1951-1953 in his first XK120, Calvert was sufficiently enamoured with this car he rallied and toured on many occasions including taking it to the UK in 1996 for "XK50", Jaguar's 50th Anniversary of the XK120. He also participating in the Jaguar XK120 Commemorative Run-a re-enactment of a post WW2 period wager involving an officially timed run from Darwin to Alice Springs-which was completed in an astounding 10 hours by Les Taylor. The 45th Anniversary group of some 30 XK120s did the same run at a comparatively leisurely pace taking 3 days to complete the same distance. The commemorative number plate from this event accompanies the car.
Calvert maintained and kept this car in his collection until the time of his death in May, 2015. We are informed by his family that in recent years the car has been regularly serviced by the late Peter McFarlane of Geelong. The car is presented in silver with red interior trim and is fitted with a four speed manual transmission. The Jaguar Trust Heritage Certificate states this car was manufactured as a left hand drive, in November, 1950 and dispatched on the 8th January, 1951, to Hornburg, Los Angeles, USA. The car also has its body number on a pop riveted plaque to the fire wall 'F2308' matching the brass identification plate.
Presenting a rare opportunity to acquire an iconic British sports car with the provenance of a privateer Jaguar racing driver who competed in just such a model at consecutive Australian Grands Prix of the period. This vehicle is documented in The Jaguar XK120 in the Southern Hemisphere, by John Elmsgreen and Terry McGrath.

The estimate 42 -52,000 is surely Pounds sterling. The catalogue says A$ 85 - 105,000
