Description

Limited Edition 1:43 resin model of the 1955 Jaguar XK120 with custom body by Flajole.

The Flajole Forerunner was a car way ahead of its time. Built on a Jaguar XK-120 chassis, it was made completely of fiberglass, with hidden headlights behind the front grill. It had high bucket aircraft seats for safety and a Plexiglas sliding roof. It featured light colored wheel scoops before the Corvette did. The Forerunner made the cover of many national car magazines, including the September 1955 issue of Motor Trend. This was a "one off" car used by Flajole as his personal transportation for many years. The car was sold in 1972 and has had several owners. It was sold at auction in 2009 at the Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach, CA.

Superb piece produced by ABC Brianza, mounted on base in museum style plexi case with numbered metal plate, number 16 from an edition of 500.
