Petrolicious has come across another cool cal, Clark Gable's Jaguar XK 120

One of the first to roll off the assembly line, it was hand beaten aluminum instead of pressed, because the demand for the new body style was so great.

This one was bought by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner at the time, Anton Hulman, while the actor was in town filming To Please A Woman. He would keep it stored there at the race track, and amazingly, the car would only see use once a year in May when Gable would come back into town to see the race.

It has only been driven 6500 miles
