in these pictures of a 120 customization that his father did.
Joe's description:

How far can you modify a Jaguar XK120?

Dad took this 0-miles, (picked it up at the docks,) XK 120
and did a full custom for NY Beer baron, Louis Ebling
for entry in Washington D.C.s prestigious World Motor Sports Shows in the early fifties.

He was a little embarrassed by the excess in later years,
but still, not many others could have done that much with (TO!) a NEW Jag.

It WON a trophy at the World Motor Sports show.
This one was shipped down to D. C. and Dad tended to it at the show,
after driving down in a Mercedes Gullwing, with a LOT of frustrated
Highway Patrolmen fading in the rear view mirror!

I'd very much like to ask members of your list
if anyone knows wherecar is today and if anyone has any more
info on it, such as an old program or magazine photos of it
from the World Motor Sports Show etc...

Make sure to scroll down to see all 3 images!
