This 120 FHC is owned by a Massachusetts man who ordered it new with these relieved or open spats direct from Jaguar. The picture was taken by Carl Hanson at a show last summer in MA. Carl spoke to the man and he said that Jaguar had made six 120s fitted with this type of spat.

A spat that was on a customers 120 DHC when he bought it. The car has disc wheels. This spat is simular to the sport spat on the Coombe's MIIs.

This is a factory photo of a 150 with still another variation of the relieved spat.
This 120 OTS has an identical set as the 120 FHC. How about a caption contest for this picture?
This original belly pan set belongs to Paul Borel. Paul Skilleter had this picture in his XK Jaguar book descibing them as the only set that he was aware of. I asked a friend of mine, who has been repairing Jaguars for a living exclusively for thirty years what he knew about belly pans on XKs. He said that he had seen only one set on a 120 OTS that he had worked on in the early seventies. The car belonged to a woman from the Boston area and was street car, never a racer. I would ideally like to find someone with a set to copy so that I could make them.

Does anybody know of anyone possesing a belly pan set for a 120? If I'm not able to find a set to copy I think that with a frame upsidedown in my shop I could make a very close copy using the picture as a guide . If you have any information contact Wray E. Schelin at
