Default 1957 XKSS displayed in Washington, DC suburb

If you're ever in Washington, D.C., be sure to stop at Clyde's restaurant on Wisconsin Ave in Chevy Chase, Md and have a drink in the downstairs Race Bar where you can drool over the 1957 XKSS that has been on display for decades. It's real, not a replica. The other car on the right side of this picture is a Morgan 3-wheeler.

This photo was taken downstairs; upstairs is a large dining room with an awesome model train that runs around a track that is suspended from the ceiling, plus lots of other transportation-related items including model airplanes and ships and posters. Great fun, not to be missed. And good food, too!

Great to see but what a shame - it should be on the road!

I was surprised to find no information on Clyde's website about the vehicle other than a similar photograph.

Damn, I've heard of washing-up if you can't pay the bill, but having to leave an XKSS, wow some bill.

Looks like nice place, I wonder if Doug eats there.

Updating my original post, is a review of Clyde's of Chevy Chase by Trip Advisor: Always good, nice menu - Review of Clyde's of Chevy Chase, Chevy Chase, MD - TripAdvisor

Here are 2 of the 33 photos included in that review:

1957 Jaguar XKSS


1935 Mercedes Benz 500K? (I'm not sure, exhaust pipe missing)


Liked it? If so, please press in the bottom right corner.

Thanks for sharing, Stuart S! I'll definitely be going by to check out the XKSS next time I'm in the area!

I recently talked about this car with Peter Crespin, the editor of the Jaguar Journal: JCNA's official magazine. Peter knew about the XKSS at Clyde's and stated it is most definitely not an original: it is a REALM reproduction. We were at the International Jaguar Festival standing next to a Lynx XKSS (probably the best recreation of the XKSS aside from the continuation cars Jaguar recently manufactured). Peter knows his D-Types and XKSS's extremely well and unfortunately shared the news that this is not an original XKSS. Still worth a visit to go see it....a great looking car!
