XKSS 728 (XKD 547) Engine n° E2051-9 Reg. N° n/a Colour BRG
Show car D-type 1956 Barcelona Fair, then converted into XKSS, Delivered to Jaguar Cars North America, ; John Norcross (Chicago, USA). 98 Sold to Gary Bartlett, USA
The car had never been repaired in any way. Nuts, bolts, hose clamps, tires, trim, hood, paint, bulbs, etc. were just as they were when 728 left the factory in 1957. There were many items that even he had never been able to find out about on other XKSSs. The car is remarkable and certainly the only untouched, original XKSS that we ever seen.

This car was in the inaugural 2012 Windsor Concours of Elegance. It was also on display on the Jaguar stand at the 2015 Holyrood Concours of Elegance. It is now owned by Yorkshire car collector and philanthropist Terry Bramall (sold by Gary Bartlett). There are plenty of copyright photos on google images of both events featuring the car, still completely unrestored and fabulous.
