Default Re: Vintage Jaguar XK120/140/150 in India

Around 1990/91 a XK was laying by the roadside, rotting away near Sasoon docks, Mumbai. I recently asked my friend who had his office nearby at that time about it's fate and he informed me that it was rescued by some collector. Any information on that one?

Happy Motoring,

Chanced upon this image of actor Feroze Khan posing with an XK (I assume 120). If I remember right a red one featured in one of his movies, perhaps this is a still from the same movie.

XK120 OTS rhd:
French Motor Co, Calcutta
660977, Suede Green, Suede Green, French Grey, May 52 HD, nothing known except that the car is in the UK.
From the list kindly shared earlier, and the regn number now visible in these photos, we can make a guess that it is car 660977, now in the UK.

On the other hand, we have seen Feroze Khan in the 1971 movie 'Ek Paheli' with a similar car in red, with 2 different registration numbers BMC 8479 and MRZ 5825 (which could easily have been 2 different cars!).

The plot thickens.
