History of the MG TD


Doepke Jaguar XK120

Introduced in 1955, the Doepke Jaguar proved just as popular as the Doepke MG TD. The Jaguar was offered in two colours, but original red ones are almost non-existent today. Baby blue is the predominant hue. Primed versions were not available, but fully assembled versions were. They came in a plain brown box similar to the Doepke construction toys.

With real "style-setter" lines and realistic looking chassis details, the Doepke Jaguar was an enjoyable kit to assemble and a wonderful toy to play with.
The dimensions of the Doepke Jaguar are W x L x H:  15,5 cm x 44 cm x 11,5 cm, or 6 1/4" x 17 1/2" x 4 1/2". The cars have big rubber tyres indicated with Doepke and Doepke model logo.
