Ok, so I got one (model). First model I can ever remember buying.
Hey, it’s the same color as mine, black!
And I don’t believe they really “pulled out” of racing after '55, there is the XJ13 development, and they did support others indirectly, but they just had bigger fish to fry at the time methinks.
Of course you have the LeMans and IMSA cars of the 80s-90s, and later F1 (not so successful) however perhaps you are only referring to earlier times.
Funny, having recently returned upon living abroad nearly 20yrs, looking through items packaged away…sigh…what a life…
One model found, an XK8 which I was excited about at its release.
That and the S type I really liked at their release, especially as a former Mk2 owner as a kid.
Original articles, and magazines at time of release, etc. How they were hailed at the time.
Now being given away, the S Type a bit scorned and even unpopular.
Goodness, old Hemmings magazines (you may be unfamiliar being abroad) with E Types in great, even restored condition, for $20k…
But I digress…
Anyway, discovered a few models I forgot I had! Photographs, books, etc.
How these damn cars have been such a part of my life.
Anyway, take care and thanks for all the info.
None of those three you have found online. Must be rarities.
Have a good day/evening.
PS: I mean really…$5600USD
The model I found within my boxes is this car/color as well.
Madness. Despite being not the ideal year to get, crazy.
Pity the hood ornament. Nitwits. What are these people thinking?!
So it goes…
