The very last of the XK series, the XK150 had been radically revised when launched in 1957. Production lasted until 1961 after which a total of 4,400 cars had been built as fixed head coupes. The demise of the XK150 marked the end of the traditional Jaguar before the arrival of the monocoque chassis of the E – Type. While the first XK150 were slower than their predecessors, the deficit was corrected in spring 1958 with the release of Special Equipment models upgraded using Twin SU – HD6 carburetors, a modified cylinder head and all round disc brakes.
Our XK150 presented in ‘Old English White’ being a late 1958 build benefits from the high performance Special Equipment package and is the very last of the 3.4 cars.
This example presents beautifully in Old English White. The body is very straight and appears to have been extremely well looked after. In our opinion this car has a warm unrestored feeling that is becoming very desirable with so many over restored classic cars about. The car appears to retain all of its original fixtures and the chrome work is bright and un-pitted.
Retaining all original dials, steering wheel and fittings the XK150 cabin feels spacious and luxurious. The seats feel solid and having been sympathetically re-trimmed present very well, as do the carpets.
Having been subject to our 131 point mechanical inspection upon arrival any faults will have been identified and rectified. The reliable 3.4 Litre unit starts and runs well showing a healthy oil pressure. The four speed manual Moss gearbox with over-drive also performs very well.
Fitted with modern 16’ Chromed wire wheels and new tyres for both reliability and safety. These upgraded wheels produced by a very well respected company really finish the car well. The brakes have been overhauled recently and have ample stopping power.
Current V5 certificate. Our 131 point inspection report. Bundles of invoices for maintenance and service work. Old mot certificates. Correspondence between previous keepers and the Jaguar owners club. A good comprehensive history file.
