Jaguar fans should rejoice with the news that enthusiastic and empathetic works Long Nose D-Type XKD603 owner Clive Beecham has replicated Jaguar’s 1951 race team Bedford parts 3 ton van.
Clive worked very hard to find a van with the same body as Jaguar’s, then he had it liveried in team colours and signage after consulting former team personal including Ron Gaudion.
The van has just been finished by the same outfit who paints Williams F1 cars, and it will be seen often at major events when his famous D-Type appears. The pair will make a wonderful sight.
Clive sent us these images of his van with the D-Type, a famous and historic XK120 and also ex- works/Mt Druitt 24 Hour/ and New Zealand C-Type XKC039.
