NEW! Jaguar XK 120 – The story of 660725 by Simon Ham

This book, published in November, tells the story of how this early XK 120 was exported new to Singapore then soon bought by Scottish ex-pat Bob Henderson in Malaya. He went on to keep 660725 for over 60 years, culminating in the cars being fitted with (amongst other interest items) a supercharger, after which it recorded 0 – 100mph in 13.8 seconds!

I first encountered this car and its amazing history in an article by Jim Patten in Jaguar World some years ago, and now, most deservedly, a book has been written on it and the equally amazing Bob Henderson. The author is Simon Ham, son of David Ham who in the 1970s and 80s I much enjoyed watching drive the family’s Lister-Jaguar (which Simon went on to race as well).

The book covers:
• Full story of the Jaguar’s time in Kuala Lumpur and its competition activities in the Far East
• Ice-racing success in Canada and its victory in the gruelling Canadian International Winter Rally
• How the car was restored in Bob Henderson’s native Scotland following 30 years of storage
• An in-depth look at how its owner successfully fitted a turbocharger to the venerable six-cylinder engine
• Details of Henderson’s best-known automotive creation – the mid-engined Argyll GT
• Dozens of evocative images from Henderson’s personal collection, plus a bespoke studio photoshoot

PLEASE ENSURE YOU SELECT THE CORRECT SHIPPING COSTS BY USING THE 'SHIPPING' DROP-DOWN LIST BELOW, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE ORDERING FROM OUTSIDE THE UK.

IF THE CORRECT SHIPPING RATE IS NOT SELECTED YOUR ORDER WILL BE DELAYED AS WE WILL HAVE TO CONTACT YOU FOR THE ADDITIONAL PAYMENT REQUIRED


NOTE that our books are generally heavy - several Kg for many. WE DO NOT attempt to make a profit on shipping costs and only charge what is necessary to get the book to you in a speedy (often within 24 hours for the UK) and safe manner (many books have their own custom protective cardboard shipper). If you are in the UK, you can generally make big savings by ordering more than one of our own books at a time. We do not debit cards until good are ready for despatch (unless you pay by PayPal in which case PayPal will debit you immediately - this is outside our control)

Available Options: please ensure you select the correct edition (standard or leather etc) using the Print Format button (if several are available) and the correct Shipping option as mentioned above. If your destination is not shown, please use the Contact Us form for a quote. Note that Print Format and Shipping prices marked + are additional to the basic standard edition cost. Note that many of our larger books to European destinations are now sent insured/signed for at extra cost due to unacceptable levels of non-delivery recently.

FOR PJ PUBLISHING BOOKS to mainland UK destinations ONLY: we will ship two or more (any quantity) of our own books via ParcelForce for a one-off charge of £9.95. To take advantage of this, order your books (not mixed with books from other publishers that we sell) via the lists below and we will ensure you are only charged £9.95 despite what your Invoice shows (PayPal users will get a refund if necessary)
