Where did that come from Steve,
Somewhat at odds with my info.
I record five LHD-OTS XK140 chassis numbers of supposedly destroyed cars,
out of the 161 LHD OTS actually built in January 1957, but some of which had
already been dispatched before fire on 12 Feb.
No RHD roadster built in Jan 1957.
No RHD FHC built in Jan 1957.
Five LHD FHC built in January 1957 but last on 9th Jan, so most (and maybe
all) dispatched before fire.
One RHD DHC built in 1957, but dispatched, and a known survivor today.
Seven LHD DHC built in January 1957 but again last on 9th Jan, so most (and
maybe all) dispatched before fire. (Certainly not on my list of chassis
numbers as being destroyed)
I have seen the D-type destroyed numbers before.
No info at all about the saloons.
