This Legendary ‘Lost’ 1952 Jaguar C-Type Is Fully Restored And Up For Sale

Back in the 1950s, Jaguar built just 53 XK120C sports-racers. That car would go on to acquire near-instant fame as it helped Jaguar dominate the Le Mans track in the ’50s and became the first car ever to average a speed of over 100mph. One of those legendary C-Type Jags, however, would go missing for more than 30 years before being finally recovered and restored. And this is it.

After sitting in a showroom for a time — where it was test-driven and raced by Bob Hope’s Hollywood scriptwriter Jack Douglas — this C-Type was sold to Portland racer David Fogg. Following the sale, this car actually raced, was damaged and repaired, and traded hands several times before ending up in the possession of mechanic Frank Schierenbeck in 1962. It was then, after some tumultuous personal events, put in storage and seemingly forgotten for over 30 years. Thankfully, however, it has since been recovered and restored to its former glory — with its revival including the acquisition and reintegration of all its original parts. This legendary piece of racing and automotive history is now looking for a new home, but you’ll have to reach out to find out info on pricing and availability.
