According to the Jaguar Heritage production record certificate, this stunning XK was dispatched new 15th July 1955 by supplying dealer Coombs & Son of Guildford, surrey to its first owner "The First Air Trading co ltd" of London who's business was buying and selling aircrafts.


Chassis number 807196 was subject to a comprehensive nut and bolt restoration 2010-2011 which was carried out by the leading restorers in the industry, chassis by Leaping Cats, body by RS panels / Contour Craft, engine & gearbox Brian Reid, paint by Brookfield Classics, hood & interior trim by GB Classics Ltd. The result is an absolutely stunning car built to concours standard. A photographic library of the restoration on file accompanies the car.

In 2017 we sent the car to Twyford Moors XK specialists for a full service and check over which included upgrading the gearbox to a new 5 speed T5 gearbox. Numerous parts were replaced and works carried out to bring the car up to top standard at a cost of over £15,000.

A few sympathetic upgrades have been carried out such as EZ Steering power steering unit, front disc brakes, SU HS8 carburettors, electric fuel pump, 5 speed t5 gearbox, 4 spoke wooden rim steering wheel.

A beautiful example of a true classic.
