[concours] Gable's Jag?

I am in the middle of a Clark Gable/Barbara Stanwyck film from the early
50’s (“To Please a Lady”). Having survived the scene in which Gable SLAPS
Stanwyck across the face, I was fascinated to see that Gable’s character, a
race car driver, frequents a shop in which a race car is being prepared: the
grille on this beauty is from an XK 120, and prominently fea
tured in the shop is a gleaming (red?) XK120 in stock form. It occurs to me
that this car may very well have been Gable’s personal Jaguar. He had a
standing order for delivery of new Jaguars for years. A gorgeous car, in any
case.
