|Wolfgang Kurth's Jaguar XK-120|
From Wolfgang: "Hi! I’m
researching the history of my XK120 OTS (670501) since quite some time
and with the support of many Jaguar historians. I have collected some
information about the early US years of 670501 but the 1950-1968 gap is
still wide open. Can anybody help?

21.07.1950:: Delivered to Max Hoffman Motor Co., New York1950 – 1968: ????
|"1968(?:) A "Lady Racer" sold 670501 in 1968(?) to Alan G. Boring, at
that time President of "The Jaguar Affiliates Group Michigan",(34585
Quaker Valley Road, Farmington, MI.). Acc. to Alan the car had a
"fleshy" color thererfore the car was nicknamed "The Shrimp". The lady
"ran the Florida beaches at Daytona for speed trials" (standard
windscreen, spats, disc wheels). At time of transaction the lady was
about mid/late 40s, resident of the Detroit area."|
