CMC M-193 Jaguar C-Type, 1952, XKC 023 Scale 1:18

Limited Edition 1000 pcs.

In his or her wildest dream, every collector hopes to be lucky enough to pull a car out of the barn in a rusty and dusty condition but of so much importance that it would astonish the professional world. This was what happened to Dr. Christian J. Jenny and his C-Type XKC 023. Chassis XKC 023 was first delivered to Charles Hornburg, Jaguar’s US West Coast importer in late 1952, and it was directly transferred to Joe Henderson, a Jaguar dealer in Seattle. In August 1953, the car took part in a race for the first time — the Seattle Sea fair 100-mile race, and it was driven by Bill Pollack and Jack Douglas. The latter was a comedy writer and television producer, well-known for his close relationship with Hollywood celebrities, including Mitzi Gaynor, leading star of “South Pacific“. Jack Douglas became the first owner of the sleek, fast XKC 023, and he took every opportunity to show off his vehicle and girlfriend. Also, racing was in his blood, so the C-type was frequently and successfully used in local racing events. After an accident, in which XKC 023 took considerable damage on the body side, the interest of the amateur racing driver in his C-Type dwindled. The vehicle remained on the US West Coast. In 1962 it came into the possession of Frank Schierenbeck, owner of a repair shop for European sports cars. With him, the C-type stayed until 1997, but knowledge about its whereabouts had faded into obscurity from the mid-sixties. Search for the missing Chassis XKC 023 began in 1986, and the car was found in 1997, albeit in a state of disassembly. In November 2000, XKC 023 was put together once more. Hardly completely restored, it participated in the Mille Miglia Storica 2001 with Jenny/Werdenberg at the wheel. Two years later, Dr. Jenny took XKC 023 to the celebrations in honour of the C-Type win at Le Mans 1951. In May 2006, the vehicle received the coveted FIA heritage certificate.
