A very special D-Type.
D-Type XKD520 is a very important car and has followed me around the globe unintentionally!
Sold new to Bib Stillwell in Melbourne, then radio superstar Jack Davey, Frank Gardner then former Jaguar Apprentice and Le Mans winner Richard Attwood amongst many, it also lived on Jersey for many years.
It returned to Australia (specifically Brisbane) in 2013 where we inspected and photographed it thanks to its owner – who was forced to send it back to Europe because of excessive Customs Duty!
The car was crashed during Davey’s ownership, and today it is still shows those heavy scars with great character.
Remarkably, every panel except for the bonnet is original! The Frank Gardner Long Nose version built by Alan Standfield in Sydney in 1957 remains with the car though.
It is a REAL D-Type with personality!
