It is thrilling for us to get stories like the one we have just received from Laurie O’Neill, long time Sydney car collector and the man who bought XDK540 D-Type from whisky family heiress Betty Haig and brought it to Australia.
It is one of two D-Types converted to XK-SS by the factory post the fire which stopped any more examples of the supercar model being built officially.
Laurie’s priceless words will be in our coming edition, but here in the meanwhile is a photo of the car when owned in Melbourne by Colin Hyams – and with Jimmy Clark beind the wheel and Jackie Stewart beside him.
We have lots more images to go with the story.
